If he sees underwear, humanity will be destroyed! Punch Line is the newest visual novel adventure from the creators of Zero Escape and the Science Adventure series! Play as YÅ«ta Iridatsu, a high school student who faints at the sight of panties. After being stuck in ghost form, it's up to you to help YÅ«ta get back into his body and solve the mystery of *why* he causes an asteroid to destroy the earth every time he gets too excited by his underwear-sighting!.
