The world of horror and the Japanese manga artist Junji-Ito come together in the upcoming video game World of Horror. Inspired by Junji-Ito’s work, this horror RPG is set to release from PC early access on October 20, 2020.
What is World of Horror?
World of Horror is a pixelated RPG that takes place in a small, seaside town in Japan. The game features 1-bit art style that visually resembles the Japanese computers of the 1980s. Players will try to solve the mysteries of the supernatural events that are plaguing the town. The game is heavily inspired by Junji-Ito’s horror manga, with the game’s monsters and haunting ghosts looking like they have jumped straight out of his comics.
The mechanics of World of Horror involve turn-based combat, inventory management, and skill checks. The game features five playable characters, each with their unique strengths and flaws. Players must navigate the town to investigate numerous supernatural events and strange occurrences. They will encounter various puzzles and creatures along the way. The game is procedurally generated, with the events and stories changing each time players start a new game.

The development team, led by Pawel Kozminski, has been working tirelessly to improve the game and respond to feedback from the players.
