Steam Sale! Celebrating the release of The Crooked Man!

Today we have released "The Crooked Man" developed by Uri Games, the first installment in "The Strange Man" series.

We are also planning to release the other titles in this series.

To celebrate the launch of this title, we have set some fantastic 2D pixel games from Playism on sale! So please enjoy them all together.

In addition, we would like to introduce the impressions from Sen, the developer of Mad Father, about The Strange Man series.

I have played Uri-san’s works going back as far as Paranoiac. The event scripting and narrative framework in each and every title has been exemplary. The atmosphere, so peculiar to this series, immerses you in these worlds the same way a good movie does.
All games in the Strange Man series are fully-fleshed out horror experiences in their own right, but fans of suspense and mystery will find much to like here, too.
The game’s difficulty level has been tuned to provide a satisfying challenge without undermining its intended experience in frustration.

We hope you enjoy it!

About This Game

On the eve of the anniversary of her mother’s death, Aya reflects on the past. Sad, lonely, and desperate for something to help her relive happier times, Aya asks her father if they can do something special in memory of her lost mother. Aya’s father agrees and puts her to bed, promising to make tomorrow a better day. But this fleeting glimpse of light is quickly extinguished when Aya is jolted from her slumber by the sound of her father screaming. She jumps out of bed and runs to find her father, only to find the once-peaceful and somber home now littered with corpses and other horrors. Will Aya end up reuniting with her mother in the most horrific way imaginable at the hands of the undead hordes? Will she manage to escape the manor together with her father’s assistant, Maria? Or will she somehow manage to save her father from the unknown terrors awaiting her around every turn?

Mad Father is an exploration-based horror-adventure game, created by Japanese developer sen.
As Aya, the main character, explore your family’s sprawling manor while making use of the items you find along the way and doing whatever you can to survive the night.


The young heroine of the story. She consciously avoids getting too close to her father's "research", and does her best to remain blissfully unaware of what her father’s work may entail...


Aya's father. Night after night, he performs horrific experiments in the basement of the family mansion.


Aya's late mother. She passed away exactly a year before the story begins.


Assistant to Aya's father.


A mysterious salesman who suddenly appears before Aya, seemingly out of nowhere...

Blonde-haired Youth

A mysterious boy who guides Aya along.


Can be used to destroy objects made of wood, etc.

Command-based action

Input the key/button commands displayed onscreen to perform various actions.


Crucial items in the game which can be found hidden in various places.
Finding all of them will be tough, but well worth the effort...

Multiple endings

There are three possible endings to the game.
The ending you are shown will depend on your actions.


Undead spirits out to attack Aya. If caught, she will gradually lose stamina, and the game will end.
Corpses armed with weapons can kill Aya with a single blow, so be careful.

I hope you enjoy this enhanced version of the original free game, featuring an array of new content, including:
-Enhanced graphics
-Newly added events, etc.
