Celebrate Halloween Early Early With Murder Mystery!


We're celebrating Halloween early today with our Steam release of the adult murder-mystery, Kara no Shojo!

Set in 1950s post-war Japan, you take on the role of private eye Tokisaka to aid the police in uncovering and catching a serial murderer that is targeting young women and leaving their remains styled after the sinners in Dante's Inferno.

Examine the crime scenes yourself for clues, try to track down and interrogate witnesses for leads, and do you best to piece together the mystery before this killer targets someone close to you!

Can you catch the killer in time?! Find out today!

If you have difficulty finding the store page, remember to update your Steam settings to allow the display of adult products.

What really brought back to Hinamizawa? How did she manage to survive the curse before? Will she be able to survive it again? Perhaps most importantly of all... why is Keiichi responding differently than he usually would?

“As far as thrillers are concerned, few video games make it anywhere near the skillful story weaving present within the Higurashi series.”

About This Game

The 58th year of Shouwa, early summer.
It’s June, and the summer heat has arrived earlier than it does most years.
By day there are crickets, and by night there are cicadas.

We’re in Hinamizawa, a small village in the countryside.
There are fewer than two thousand people here. But every year, there is an event.

This event is a mysterious death.

On a certain day in June, someone dies, and someone else goes missing.
The series of deaths is connected to the upheaval surrounding the dam construction project.
A murder case that was covered up is being reenacted.
Is it a conspiracy? A coincidence? Or perhaps a curse?

Someone who was supposed to be there isn’t.
Someone who wasn’t supposed to be there is.

Someone who was alive last night is dead now.
And someone who is here right now isn’t alive.

So, there is no way to avert tragedy. There is no choice but to give up.
But don’t give up.

Only you can stand up to this.
