The Story

In the little town of Akaoka, Japan, a bullied teen lives everyday in monotonous torment until he meets a newcomer, a strange girl who finally treats him kind. This triggers an unnatural obsession in him as she becomes the final straw to an ever-deteriorating sanity and the monstrous transformation he'll undertake that'll change his hometown forever...

Anime meets Slasher flicks, an unholy marriage made in Hell.


Introduction

If you like 80's anime, if you like 80's slashers, you've come to the right place!
Behold a smooth film experience with a UI that even looks like an old VHS player! A linear electric novel that's easy to read and easy to recommend! Count all the horror tropes because you're going to see them! With a cast of Japanese voice actors planned and a compelling storyline about one boy's fall from sanity, buckle up - because you're going to see things from the eyes of a killer! 

Backgrounds 

Just look at theses 1980's aesthetics! A world of VHS that caters to the classical slasher flicks of old! Every screen will have filters to retain the dark, grisly feel you know and love! Cue the gruesomeness and final girls! Cue the jumpscares and low-budget filmmaking! Cue deaths from knives and creepy mask breathing!

There will, indeed, be signs and dialogue translated for our Nijisanjii friends. You watch.

Dat glow effect...

Do you feel like making out in this totally-safe, killer-definitely-not-here foggy forest ? Cause' I do!

If things are going a too well in a horror movie that's probably when something bad will happen...

Come and see...

An angel watching over me...


Character Sprites

Can't have classic horror without dumb, tropey characters to fill it! You've seen them before, now see them get stalked again in anime form! Each one will be voiced Japanese and given radio-like filters to keep you deeply trenched in the feels of a classical 1980's anime! By these two elements you'll see something you don't see often, if ever, in today's anime - the slasher genre.

"It's not like I want you to kill me off first, b-baka!"

The flamboyant colors of the 80s in one sentence.
*Internally Plays Pumped Up Kicks*

Plan

Hope to release by 2022 on Steam and Itchio, for FREE
Free, you say? So why should I even bother sub-
Do you want the game next year or in two/three years? Plus, why not become part of the experience by becoming a character in the game! I've paid everything on my own and am willing to pay more with my irl job, but even with all my rent paid off it will take sweet time to complete this big work! I'll keep the game's progress updated starting on the week after the Steam release, doing weekly progress checks when I can.

Also it should be noted that if funding for the game fails, obviously it may not be done by 2022. There is also the possibility that I may work on another shorter project to earn people’s trust in my ability to create a good game. Like BUTA, it is planned to also have similar 80’s aesthetics, so sit tight!

Hello subscribers,
This is my first post for you special people.
I must admit I'm new to this site, probably as new as most of you. If you've gotten this far you have my eternal thanks. Right now I'm working on getting some artwork for the next scene in the game so far, a scene on the streets outside a love hotel.
Here's the basis I'm sending my artist.

If the skull was the first thing you saw, it was the same for me...


Also some videos on the early developmental phase of the game cause' why not?

the Goal
To make this game in it's entirety including artwork, voice actors, script translations, and animation if God-willing we get there? We need a lot of money. 7k and I should have plenty to work with. Should hopefully be out by next year if not early the year after. Extra funds will go into polishing for a smoother and faster release.
