Written by Ryukishi07, best known for his work on Higurashi and Umineko, Iwaihime looks to be the perfect visual novel for Halloween. According to ShiraVN, this is a story themed around “curses”, and the game’s screenshots definitely give off a creepy vibe.
A demo is already available for Iwaihime on Steam, with the full game set to release late October.
Overview of Iwaihime via ShiraVN:
“I envy you the privilege of dying. Curse your powerlessness, and leave us.”
From the pen of hit writer Ryukishi07, the creator of Higurashi and the rest of the When They Cry series, comes a story on the theme of “curses.” Characters brought to life with delicate skill by manga artist and illustrator Kazuharu Kina are set against atmospheric backgrounds from the fantastic mind of environment artist Mocha. This supernatural horror visual novel—a tale of sin, retribution, and penance—will soon be available for the first time outside Japan.
This new international release includes scenario adjustments and CG improvements from the prior console re-releases, bringing to PC the writer’s preferred rendition of the tale.
