Crawling in the dark
First-person dungeon crawlers have been around for a long time, and like most genres, they’ve evolved over the years in order to find new relevance. Some have stuck to the classic turn-based RPG model and thrown in modern visuals and humour - such as the recent Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk - while others have followed...
About The Game
Form your party (a group of secret agents) from among four races: Human, Oni, Tengu, and Nekomata. Then conquer the terrifying and mysterious Yokai-filled castle!
The Yokai in Hyakki Castle
The game reproduces Yokai from ancient Japanese literature, including the giant skeleton Gasha Dokuro and a Yokai made up of a woman's head and arm.
Many creepy and terrifying monsters will appear. They await your secret agents (players) in Hyakki Castle.
Powerful bosses will be unleashed at certain points as you make your way up through the castle. Aim for the tower, where the master of the castle awaits!
Main Theme: Dan no Ura
Dan no Ura, an original song by the Biwa player Sae Ishida, creates a creepy atmosphere.
About Real Time Dungeon RPGs
Real time dungeon RPGs play like an action game, in which you move around and fight on a floor with a grid layout. With the exception of some portions, the game plays out in real time.
When in combat, the enemy won't wait for your attack. Battle by avoiding enemy attacks and timing your own attacks at the right moment.
A Yokai-Filled Castle with Danger Lurking Around the Corner
The player's secret agents will storm Hyakki Castle, where formidable Yokai and terrifying traps await.
Be careful. One miss will cost you your life.
Eat the food you find in the castle to survive. An empty stomach will lower your stats.
There's nowhere to relax in this castle. Eat, sleep, destroy Yokai, and search the castle. In the Yokai-filled Hyakki Castle, you're always one step away from death.
The 2 Party System
The game has a split party system that uses the Tokugawa treasure item Ishin no Ofuda.
The player can freely split up into two parties at any time (the game will go into split screen mode).
When necessary, split into two teams to deal with the traps and challenges in the room.
In addition, the party you aren't controlling will use spells to temporarily harden themselves, increasing their stamina.
Attack enemies from the rear to deal massive damage. Use the hardened party with high stamina as a decoy, and send the other around to the back.
