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.

About This Game

June, 1983.

The summer heat has arrived earlier than it does most years.
By day there are cicadas, and by night, the higurashi.

Hinamizawa, a small village in the Japanese countryside.
While there are fewer than two thousand people there, every year, 'something' happens.

For the past 4 years, someone has died, and someone else has gone missing.
This series of deaths and disappearances is connected to the local resistance against a now-abandoned dam construction project.
A murder during the construction, covered up by the local authorities, is being re-enacted year after year.
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 now dead, and someone who is here right now isn't alive.

There is no way to avert this tragedy. There is no choice but to give up trying.

But even so... please don't give up.
