Limbus Company is a free-to-play, turn-based RPG with a gacha system and dungeon crawling elements.
Set some time after the events of Lobotomy Corporation, the Library of Ruina, and the webcomic Leviathan (all done by Project Moon, and set in the same universe). Limbus Company is the story of a person known only as Dante, who lost most of their memories and the ability to speak normally, having their head replaced by a literal clock. The only thing Dante knows is that they have been "hired" as a manager for the Limbus Company by a legendary Fixer named Vergilius, traveling with a dozen other Sinners (loosely based on famous literary works from the real world), guiding them to collect Golden Boughs that represent a new source of untapped power, salvaged from the ruins of Lobotomy Corp.
All of the Sinners have alternate forms that can be acquired through the Extract function when enough roses are collected. However, the main story usually refers to their base forms shown below.
|Yi Sang||A soft-spoken genius researcher who created a mirror into alternate worlds, and later escaped from K Corp.||Real-life Korean poet Yi Sang, and their 1936 short story "The Wings."|
|Faust||The one who developed Mephistopheles (the Limbus Company bus) and allegedly recruited Vergilius and Charon. An arrogant genius, but willing to show patience and explain things to and from Dante.||Main character of the play “Faust” by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe from 1808.|
|Don Quixote||The surprisingly cheerful and upbeat fan of justice and all things Fixer-related, even if it leads her into more trouble.||Protagonist of the 1605 novel “Don Quixote” by Miguel de Cervantes.|
|Ryōshū||Chain-smoker with a love of speaking in abbreviations and cutting things with her sword.||Yoshihide from the short story “Hell Screen” by Ryunosuke Akutagawa from 1918.|
|Meursault||A man of few words who prefers to let someone else guide his hand as needed.||Main character of the 1942 novel "The Stranger" by Albert Camus|
|Hong Lu||Sinner who grew up in a rich family and is ignorant, yet curious, about how the commonfolk live.||Mid-17th century Chinese novel “Dream of the Red Chamber” by Cao Xueqin|
|Heathcliff||Sinner with anger management issues who usually strikes first and asks questions later.||Main character of “Wuthering Heights” by Emily Bronte, written in 1847.|
|Ishmael||A patient sinner with a love of the sea.||POV character in the 1851 novel “Moby Dick” by Herman Melville.|
|Rodion||Born on "The Backstreets," this Sinner has a love of gambling and an ironic detachment to most situations.||Main character of "Crime and Punishment" by Fyodor Dostoevsky from 1867.|
Technically Sinner #10 even though they don't do any of the fighting. Their past is largely unknown and their head was replaced with a ticking clock.
They currently act as the manager of Limbus Company, with powers that allow them to seek out Golden Boughs and revive dead Sinners contracted to the company.
|Dante Alighieri and his 14th century poem "Divine Comedy."||N/A|
|Sinclair||One of the younger Sinners, a bit timid and insecure but with the potential to grow into a great fighter.|

|Outis||The self-appointed advisor to Dante. An expert in tactics, survival, and even some minor bus repairs, but her past is largely unknown.||Odysseus from "The Odyssey" by Homer.|
|Gregor||Chain-smoking cynic with an insectoid right arm. Relatively easy to get along with.||Gregor Samsa from Franz Kafka's "The Metamorphosis" in 1912.|
