Set in a dystopian cyberpunk vision of future Tokyo, SENSEs: Midnight casts the player as a university student with a passion for occult and paranormal phenomena. While in Japan visiting family, she looks into a local urban legend but quickly gets in over her head, awakening vengeful spirits who pursue her through a lonely night of terror in Ikebukuro Walking Park.
Uesugi Kaho is an outgoing and adventurous college student and member of her school’s occult research club. When returning to Japan for a family visit, the other club members dare Kaho to investigate an infamous urban legend, The Midnight Door of Ikebukuro Walking Park. Kaho jumps at the opportunity to prove the legend true and capture positive proof of the paranormal, but entering the long-abandoned park may be the worst mistake she will ever make.
SENSEs: Midnight is a 3D survival horror game inspired by genre classics, featuring tank controls and fixed camera angles in nostalgic style. Discover the secrets of the park via environmental storytelling and lore, manage limited inventory slots carefully to avoid backtracking, weigh risk and reward on puzzles that may alert vengeful spirits, use hiding spots to temporarily elude your pursuer, and remember, there is only one place you can safely save your game. Expect the Ikebukuro Walking Park to ooze dreadful atmosphere while the ever-present threat of a relentless Onryo stalks you!
SENSEs: Midnight is originally developed by SUZAKU Games in partnership with eastasiasoft, with art and character designs by series creator Benjamin Widdowson, and features a standalone narrative that may be enjoyed by newcomers as well as fans of the series’ previous entry.
