Tokoyo: The Tower of Perpetuity is a 2D action game set against the backdrop of a mysterious tower that rebuilds itself every 24 hours.

You find yourself trapped in a mysterious tower - one that transforms its very structure every 24 hours. 

The legacy of your epic struggle shall be carved into the hearts of those who challenge you like an epitaph. Surpass countless poor fallen souls and make your way to the heretofore unseen top!

Tokoyo: The Tower Of Perpetuity is a 2D social rogue-like game set in the titular Tower of Perpetuity, filled with savage monsters and traps, which is procedurally generated every 24 hours. The title has been created by solo indie developer Saebashi under his personal doujin circle //commentout. 

In sharp contrast to the overall cute character and game design, the gameplay is laced with challenging boss fights and platforming sequences to put your skills to the test.  

The five playable characters you can play as in Tokoyo: The Tower Of Perpetuity do not have basic attacks. However, each character has a different powerful skill that can be used, but it comes with a cooldown. Therefore, players need to be able to adeptly dodge and utilize items while the skill is on cooldown.

  1. Maid from Hell: Cocoa - Skill: Knives spin around the character acting as a shield that also damages enemies
  2. Automated Cleaning Robot: Kanae - Skill: Fires a continuous stream of fire in all directions
  3. Sickly Dragon Girl: Shippo de Tail - Skill: Fires a continuous laser that has a long reach
  4. Fox Spirit Kunoichi: Kukuri - Skill: Fires a bunch of homing cross-shaped shuriken
  5. Thousand Year Old Shapeshifting Fox: Imibi - Skill: Puts up a barrier that attacks enemies that breach it
