The summer holdays. A town caged by nature, Okunezato. One year ago in this town, her older brother suddenly disappeared without a trace.
Shaped like a fragment of the moon, a nostalgic atmosphere permeates the town. It is known for having many legends and folklores. As a result of the continued population decline, the amount of modern-looking buildings have increased in the main street. The town is starting to gain attention due to its status as a “mystery hot spot” amongst the youngsters in the underground scene.
One day, during summer vacation, the protagonist and university student Hanamaki Ichiko is invited by Kagutsuchi Hino- her childhood friend in the same university year level as her- to go to Okunezato in order to look for her disappeared older brother together. Hino had found the “Forbidden Okunezato Club”, a website in which its visitors discuss the mysteries and legends of Okunezato. Taking advantage of the offline meeting between the visitors that will take place during the summer holidays, he suggests to look into her brother’s disappearance during this time. With Hino having pushed her back, Ichiko wills herself to go to Okunezato.
The young men from the Forbidden Okunezato Club website had gathered at the Fuurin Hotel- the live-in chef Amari Isora, the cat lover otaku Kushinada Toa, the med student Tatehira Sousuke and the owner of Fuurin Hotel Murakumo Yuzuki. Others such as the genius middle schooler who assists with managing the hotel, Hirasaka Yuki, the landscape photographer Tsukuyomi Kagura, the unsociable novelist Karasuma Chikage and the video game-loving female employee of Fuurin Susano Yua also become involved as they all get caught up in mysterious incidents.
The “other face” of Okunezato comes to light as rumours regarding the “Legend of the Dead” are treated as though they were fact. Everytime they follow the footsteps of her disappeared brother, mysterious events spark. The true existence of the forbidden grounds, and the legendary flower that only blooms in Okunezato…
The truth behind these incidents lead to a surprising and totally unexpected ending.
7’scarlet will be released on PlayStation Vita in 2018.
Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly
As she fell deeper and deeper into the darkness, she could hear the sound of rainfall. Also, she heard an animalistic cry.
When she woke up, the young girl found herself in a Western-style mansion. An unknown, terrible monster rushes to attack the confused girl. As the young girl ran away from the monster, she thought:
“Where is this place?” “Who am I, anyway?”
Having lost pretty much all of her memories, she eventually met and joined up with some men in the same circumstances as her. They all held weapons that were strange handguns. From there on out, with their lives at stake, they must participate in the “Black Butterfly Hunt”, and collect “Kaleidoscope Shards” possessed by those monsters.
Inside the Western-style mansion in which despair and betrayal swirls, will they be able to find hope in their futures?
Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly will be released on PlayStation Vita in 2018.
Psychedelica of the Ashen Hawk
In a town controlled by two families, the Farshi (Falcon) and the Wolg (Wolf), a dreadful creature known as the witch, whose appearance is known to be a woman with red eyes, is said to cause misfortunes. Our heroine Eiar lives in the same town, but because her right eyes turn red whenever she’s feeling strong emotions, she has to live her life pretending to be a boy named Jed, lest the people persecute her as a witch. Despite the frequent conflicts between the Falcon and Wolf families, Jed lives a normal life working as a handyman, until she is asked by the church’s acting priest to look for a treasure called the “Kaleidovere”, a symbol of peace in the town. In her search for it, Jed discovers the secret of the town, the people around her, and the her own past.
