Tokyo Dark Brings a Japanese Urban Legend to Light – March 21, 2015
Visit the Kickstarter page

Tokyo Dark is a side-scrolling point-and- click mystery adventure game with a dark horror twist. It blends the cinematic storytelling of Heavy Rain and Shenmue with 2D side-scrolling point-and-click adventure games like Clocktower and The Blackwell Legacy, wrapped up in a beautiful anime art style.

As detective Itō, you’ll explore Tokyo, talk to many characters, collect clues, solve puzzles and make difficult decisions with far reaching consequences as you investigate the disappearance of your partner.

The game will feature a branching story with 10 different endings, each path lasting 4-6 hours. Each puzzle will have multiple solutions.

Tokyo Dark will be released on PC and Mac, and possibly other platforms depending on funding. The Kickstarter campaign will run until June 10, 2015. Time to hit those stretch goals!

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
