What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We think Early Access is a great opportunity to involve the community in the development process. 

Our community will be called to play an active role in helping us grow the game. We cannot emphasize enough how important player feedback is to us!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The current target of development involves one year of Early Access. From March 2024 to February 2025.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“There is a ton of great content we want to deliver with Hitori Kakurenbo Online, but more importantly, some of the ideas and features may change dramatically based on the feedback we receive from the community.

We plan to release 3 extra levels, and we would like to create hundreds of interchangeable parts. We are also planning to create 3 different game modes and a "Gang" system for anybody that may have groups of friends.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The version includes 2 levels, 6 teen characters with 1 skin each, 15 Dolls, a Customization system, and a Collectibles system.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to offer exclusive features and DLCs for early supporters because we plan to gradually and slightly raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We plan to review feedback from our community and will try to implement the necessary improvements.

We are also planning to organize playtesting sessions with developers to bring everyone together for our ambitious project.”

About This Game

Early Access is now available!

Expect the unexpected in the world of Hitori Kakurenbo Online (HKO), inspired by one of the most famous rituals on the internet, “One Man Hide and Seek”. Decide the fate of the unfortunate as a corrupted Doll or outwit the power of evil with the tenacity of the curious teenagers in quick and replayable encounters.

With a custom system that allows up to 6 survivors, you can gather your friends to enjoy the setting together or dive into the action online through our matchmaking. It will take more than sheer numbers to escape the dangerous Doll, so tread lightly and remember, keep quiet.

Teenager or Doll, you will be granted various abilities as you face off. Furthermore, survivors can find valuable items scattered over the map. Experiment with a wide range of strategies as the chasers bring a lot of unique surprises to match the survival elements.

As the hunted, hide and complete the ritual to escape the cursed grounds unscattered. As the hunter, your priority is to swiftly eliminate all your targets, making sure their curiosity will be their end.

Customize your characters to your liking, including hundreds of interchangeable parts for the Doll to make it the most oppressive in the eyes of the escapees. Progression is a core part of the game, allowing all players to freely stylize in tandem with numerous content updates.
