The story takes place when a young girl is out to walk her dog. The dog mysteriously disappears, and the young sister returns home with just a leash. Following this, her older sister runs out to find the dog, only to disappear as well.
The protagonist, her younger sister, ventures out into the night, only to find it completely different from the town she knew during the day.
Players will have to explore around the town in order to hopefully find the protagonist’s older sister, and dog. The town is now enshrouded in a veil of darkness, with some things unable to be seen unless you direct your flashlight onto them.
The game isn’t quite a terrifying experience, moreso something like an eerie and creepy walk through a darkened, mysterious town.
There might be ominous shadows ahead of you, or strange and unexpected noises in the distance – the developer says that revealing said things might be harmless, or potentially dangerous.
Yomawari is going to launch in Japan right in time for Halloween, on October 29th.
