About This Game


Before Arriving at the Terminal is a horror visual novel, which consists of short stories set in a suburban city.


You can read the texts by left clicks or Enter keys. A right click or M key opens the menu (save, load, config. etc.).


I remember my past days around the city:

When I was an elementary school boy, I visited an abandoned hospital for a dare with my friend;
When I was a junior high school student, I looked for a mysterious shrine along a rail line with the friend;
When I was a high school student, I checked rumors about "ghosts of children" in the school with the friend;
And when I was an undergraduate, I met you.

Everything is in the memory of this city.


You can play Before Arriving at the Terminal and its SideStory.
SideStory also consists of short episodes, which complement the main stories.
*You can play SideStory from your LIBRARY in the Steam Desktop App. Please note that you cannot play it from the STORE.


All tracks in the game are composed by Prhyzmica, a Japanese musician.
