Tge game begins with a group of people standing at the entrance of an amusement park, suddenly, a monster appears and begins to eat them. When the hunger of the monster is sated, only twelve are left. What’s worse is that those twelve are the only remaining members of the human race. A creepy mechanical doll announces that she cannot allow everyone to survive, so the twelve people are going to be reduced to two, that will have to be selected.
The world has been devastated by monsters that have turned the human race into their food, and the only place left to go is the amusement park named “Alice Land.” The only way to have a chance to survival is to take part in the “Exile Election” game organized by the doll named Alice.
The protagonist, Kaname Ichijo, is taking part in the election to get revenge over the people who “exiled” his sister during the first “election.” During the game he will explore the nature, relationships, past and weaknesses, gathering information on the participants to the “election” held every three days.
He will act with any mean possible, deceiving others, taking advantage of their weaknesses and pretending to be a friend in order to achieve his revenge.
