Editors’ Notes

This point-and-click visual novel about raising the dead is full of creepy scenes inspired by Japanese folklore that might make you shudder.

Amazing visual novel - Death Note meets Zero Escape

If you enjoy visual novels, specifically games such as the Zero Escape series, Phoenix Wright, or Dagonronpa, you’ll most likely love this game

To me it feels like a mix of Death Note, Zero Escape, and Fatal Frame, mixed into a Visual Novel style. The art style is beautiful, music fits the scene’s mood perfectly, and the story and mystery kept me enticed all the way through. The game also likes to change and pan the camera angle, or zoom in/out on different characters to make the image less static and more interesting to look at.

This is a hidden gem for sure, and one of my favorite visual novel style games period. 100% worth buying.

I wish more people knew of this game.

Majority of Square Enix games are bangers and half of them aren’t advertised and mainly people who are closely following SE content will find out or a friend telling them. This hidden gem of a game is a great puzzle game. More fun to have people to voice act with you for the dialogue which makes this a good game to stream, the puzzles are very creative as you can tell from the prologue itself (Shogo as the main character until you unlock the path screen)
