http://store.steampowered.com/app/736570/The_Crooked_Man/

In addition, we would like to introduce the impressions from Miwashiba, the developer of 1bitHeart, about The Strange Man series.

The Strange Man series offers up gripping horror vignettes of the highest caliber — among a gauntlet of other emotions, besides.
Horror games make me squeamish—I had to play this game from behind a pillow—but I was captivated into pushing through by the intriguing story and characters. I found myself caught in an endless cycle of wanting to move on, and being too afraid to do so.
I want for everyone to uncover what lies within for themselves; if you are in any way inclined, I urge you to play the series front to finish. Give the Strange Man series a chance to get its hook into you.

We hope you enjoy it!

About This Game


Welcome to 1bitHeart―the latest title from Alicemare and LiEat developer △○□× (Miwashiba). In this unique and endearing adventure game, take on the role of Nanashi, a lonely, agoraphobic boy, as you solve a slew of mysteries around town while also making friends.


This is the story of a world in which pretty much everything is controlled and watched over by computer programs.
One day, Nanashi―a young boy who has been cooped up in his room―meets a mysterious girl.
“Let’s make some friends.”
“OK!”
Nanashi accepts the young girl’s sudden invitation without giving it much thought.
At that very moment, some very strange things begin to occur in town...


Detective Part (Story Mode)
Gather information and topics by exploring the town and speaking with people to progress through the story.

Conversation Part (Story Mode)
Use the topics and info you’ve gathered to piece together conversations while progressing through the story. (The game ends when your HP reaches 0.)

Free Mode (After clearing Story Mode)
Talk and mingle with the residents of the town, make friends, and play mini games in Free Mode.

*This title was originally a free game, but the Steam version includes specially added events, etc.


This was the 3rd game I made, where I first experimented with a side-scrolling system, voice over and detective elements.
I probably spent the most time working on these 3 things, including revisions.

When designing the town, I had foreign cartoons in mind and was aiming more towards a foreign audience than a Japanese one.
However, the game is set in Japan of the near future and the character design is aimed more towards the Japanese aesthetic.
I took advantage of the fact the game is set in Japan to make some cultural references here and there.

"An adventure game where you make friends". Not a typical tag-line, but if there is any aspect that takes your fancy I hope you will play my game!
