Reviews

“A nice horror adventure with creepy atmosphere, interesting graphic effects and emotional story (a bit short). Gameplay is like walking simulator. Game expects you to figure what to do on your own.”
Worldwide Reviews

“The game is very good for its price! I nice way to kill some of your time. The sound effects were effective and got my heart jump a beat once or twice, I totally recommend it!”
AlcoGamers

“Horrors! A short yet inexpensive horror game in the Japanese tradition of media related hauntings. Fairly decent, and a quality of tension and ambiance rather than jump scares.”

About This Game

Okaeri is a Japanese horror game about a middle school girl and her mother who recently moved to a new house.
It's 6:00 pm, coming back home expecting a welcome from your mom, instead, she finds unexpected things happening before her eyes.
The game is inspired by short omniverse Japanese horror films.

Key Features:

Immersive experience: An atmospheric photo-realistic graphics intensifies the horror experience. The minimalistic design makes the player fully immersed in the ambiance.

VHS film aesthetic: VHS aesthetic emulates look and feel of CRT screens including phosphor screen trail and bleeding, VHS tape noise, interlacing, and jitter in the analog video signal adding extra immersion to the horror experience.

A short narrative exploration: An exploration heavily focused on ambiance and narrative. Collect pieces of the past and present to find out what's going on from the protagonist's perspective with native Japanese voice acting which enhances the player's experience. People who love games like Gone Home and The First Tree might love this part of the game. The testers played for about 20-40min.

Gameplay: This game is played primarily like a "walking simulator." I'd define it more as a P.T. like game.

Psychological horror: You are alone, but feels like someone is watching you. Keep going and you'll find out.
