This seemed REALLY cool, until I got to the an open area with lots of people; then I felt completely lost with out a clue what I was supposed to be doing.

I did a walkthrough of Part One and Part Two which might help if you get stuck.


I loved this little game. Not at all scary but very atmospheric. The HUD feature worked really well.

The only problem was that it is a popular attraction and there is a bit of lag at times.

This game was great fun - although I'd agree that it wasn't really Japanese horror, which makes me think of truly scary things like Junji Itoh manga and movies like Ring and Ju-On/The Grudge - the focus was more on Japanese traditional ghost stories, so the atmosphere was spooky, atmospheric and quaint, kind of like a slightly eerier Spirited Away, or a Neil Gaiman story aimed at children. There were a lot of humorous touches that I enjoyed, too.
It's also a very summery game, not in the sense of blue skies and sunshine, but of night-time summer traditions like festivals and lantern displays. I hope the same team will give us other seasonally-themed spooky events - I would love to see what they could come up with for Halloween.
