Play involves exploring the high school and talking to students and staff. The first time through you are simply learning who people are and deciding with club to join: Music, Art, Sports and Drama. But then on subsequent loops, you keep the things you've found with you, and can make different choices. Slowly you uncover the Traitor, a malevolent mastermind, who could be anyone at the school.
Along the way there are other (non-world-saving) activities to dive into. You can learn teachers' and students' routines as you explore every corner of the campus during this three day loop. Attend a costume party, become a detective, and help the school's janitor bring down a crime syndicate.
The result is a game with some light dating-sim aspects, puzzle solving and mini-games. But the main event is how intuitive and intricate the use of the time loop is. Get to the end and you've not only shared a great story but felt really clever while you did it.
