Deep Insanity is a media mix project announced back in June, and it’ll also include an anime series and a manga.
The scenario of the game is by Makoto Fukami, whom you may know for his work on Psycho-Pass. He also worked on creating the world alongside Etorouji Shiono and Norimitsu Kaihou, who worked on the Guilty Gear series, School-Live!m and, the Danganronpa 3 anime.
The game is set on a version of Earth in which people are being infected by the “Randolph Syndrome,” a contagious disease that makes them fall into an irreversible coma.
At the same time, mutated people start to appear, and the issues are linked to the discovery of a vast underground world under Antarctica, containing lifeforms different from the surface and unknown resources.
In order to cure the Randolph syndrome and to gain access to those resources, humanity starts looking into the abyss stretching out below.
At the moment, no western release has been announced for any of the parts of this project.
