Yomawari: Midnight Shadows Release News
Can This Cute Game Scare Me Shitless?
It’s a horror game? Woooh... I just got some shivers and all I read was the title and what the genre was. The words horror game brings back memories of my game plays in the horror genre. It’s something I hate playing, but I keep going back to that genre. And it doesn’t help for me knowing that Japan makes one of the creepiest horror movies and video games and the damn game is single-player.
Title: Yomawari: Midnight Shadows
Developer: Nippon Ichi Software
Publisher: NIS America and Nippon Ichi Software (Japan)
Platforms: PC, PS4, PSVita
Genre: Survival Horror
Release Date: October 24, 2017
The plot is simple. Two girls Yui and Haru go home late at night after a summer fireworks festival. They get lost and then separated from each other.
You the gamer will play as both Yui and Haru, switching between their perspectives. They come upon a town at night which is completely different during the day.
Decisions, actions, and information acquired made with Yui impacts the other character and vice versa.
You will play as both Yui and Haru who were separated. You must explore the town, get them back together and find them a way home. Their only source of light is the flashlight.
There are items to be found like the ‘Omamori’, which are attribute boosting items that increases the girls stamina, speed, etc. These items will be useful when you scream like a little girl and needs to get out of there in a hurry.
There are strange lurking spirits in street corners, below the street light, and even in the shadow of mountains. The girls have a “spirit tracker”, whenever a spirit is close by, the girls heartbeat will be faster.
The girls cannot fight and can only run away, hide, or use an item. You will be able to interact with the environment. For example: you can get the girls to push wooden boxes and they can be used as stepping stones and bypass blockades.
You will have to use your brains for this game it seems like.
I didn’t want to see the trailer, but I couldn’t help it. I love screaming like I’m 8 years old again. But, it never happened.
I have a difficult time screaming like a little girl in a horror game when the girls look so cute. But the game is still a horror game, the environment will make you scream but not the girls.
Don’t look back, look forward, to the release date of 24 Oct 2017 in the U.S. The dark is no place to be alone and separated. I just wanted to point that out.
