About This Game


MALICE is a two-player, escape room-style puzzle game of exploration and co-operative puzzle solving with a Japanese horror theme.

Play with a friend as a pair of travelers visiting a mysterious temple in modern-day Japan. When a sudden earthquake plunges you into the underground darkness where a foreboding mansion lies dormant and waiting, you must navigate the ancient house, discovering its secrets while surviving the malicious inhabitants lurking down every dark corridor and lingering within every room. Separated from your partner, both of you must rely on your communication skills, bravery, and pure wit if you want to escape the mansion and ever see the light of day again.
