Ikai

Developer Endflame and publisher PM Studios announced Ikai, a first-person psychological horror game, today. The game will draw inspiration from traditional Japanese folklore. It is schedule to launch this October.

According to the publisher, “Ikai embodies the spirit of the classical psychological horror genre with a defenseless main character incapable of attacking the evil creatures. However, it explores a new sense of horror by making the player face the threats directly neither fleeing nor attacking.”

Every mechanic in Ikai is designed to make the player feel helpless and create tension. Players take on the role of Naoko, a priestess trying to make it from her shrine to the river before dark. Unfortunately, strange occurrences have been happening in the village as of late, and while Naoko doesn’t believe the rumors of demons and spirits, she’s about to find out she’s wrong firsthand. The game will task players with exploring, drawing protective seals, solving puzzles, and running or hiding to try and stay alive.

You can watch a trailer for Ikai below:
