Programmer Endflame and author PM Studios introduced Ikai, a first-person mental scary game, today. The video game will certainly draw ideas from standard Japanese mythology.

According to the publisher, “ Ikai embodies the spirit of the classic mental scary genre with a defenseless primary character incapable of assaulting the wicked animals. However, it checks out a new sense of horror by making the player deal with the risks straight neither fleeing nor striking.”

Every mechanic in Ikai is designed to make the player feel powerless as well as develop stress. Gamers tackle the role of Naoko, a priestess trying to make it from her shrine to the river prior to dark. Sadly, strange incidents have actually been taking place in the town as of late, as well as while Naoko doesn’t believe the rumors of devils as well as spirits, she will learn she’s wrong firsthand. The video game will task players with discovering, attracting protective seals, solving challenges, and also running or concealing to try as well as survive.
