Innocent Gray’s main game series, Kara no Shojo, has made its way to Valve’s distribution platform.
Kara no Shojo takes place in Tokyo in 1956, eleven years after the end of World War 2. The city is under a lot of stress while a series of murders reminiscent of England's Jack the Ripper is taking place; young women disappear, only to be found with their wombs torn out.
The local detective asks his old friend, Tokisaka Reiji, for help. This request takes place not long after Reiji has accepted another bizarre case. A young girl named Kuchiki Touko has hired him to find her true self. He quickly meets this girl again, running into her at school, where the principal has asked him to investigate the student’s frequent disappearance, a case that could be connected to the Tokyo’s murder cases.
Playing as Tokisaka Reiji, you will be tasked with unraveling the three mysteries presented by the game. Your investigation skills will be put to the test as you search through crime scenes and manage your time, trying to be in the right place at the right time, making proper use of your clues.
The game features thirty key characters within its story, and three mystery plots loaded with gore and psychological horror. You can find the official description and some sample screenshots below:
- The outcome of the story lies in your hands!
In this game, the player him/herself becomes the detective and performs investigation and deduction. The player's choices mark significant changes to the outcome of this story. What did you do, when, and where. The truth is uncovered little by little from the notes of a diary as progress is made - and sometimes, revealing an unwanted secret...
- A great variety of characters that draws out the story
There are easily over 30 characters with visuals in this work. Each character represents a different idea, and carries their own thoughts and beliefs, crafting a complicated human drama. The stunning plot ties each incident together, one after another, leading to an exhilarating story.
