Publisher PM Studios and development studio Endflame have announced the release date for the psychological horror Ikai – the game will be released on physical and digital media for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, as well as for PC via Steam on March 29th. The physical edition includes a postcard and stickers as an exclusive bonus. Currently in Steam a demo version of the game is available.
Ikai embodies the spirit of classic first-person horror games, where the defenseless protagonist, unable to attack evil creatures, is forced to come up with sophisticated survival strategies.
According to the plot of the game, in some remote countryside, the villagers are mortally frightened – terrible signs indicate that terrible otherworldly entities are getting closer to people. And apparently soon a new demon from the underworld will appear in the real world. The priestess of the Shinto shrine Naoko, unaware of the chthonic monsters, leaves her shrine and goes to the village river, but does not have time to return before dark. And when darkness descends on the nearby forest, the girl realizes that the rumors about demons and ghosts are not fiction at all.
