World of horror – demo

World of horror is a black and white 1-bit horror game (as the name suggests) inspired by HP Lovecraft and Junji Ito. You solve different types of mysteries and battle horrific enemies in turn-based combat as you struggle to survive and most importantly keep your sanity.

The story centers in a small city in Japan in the 1980s where the old gods are about to awaken and you use different sets of card events to play through the mysteries. It also features branching stories with five playable characters to brave the chaos, each with their own story and a different perspective on the events that unfold. We see them try and survive the impending doom as they unravel puzzles and mysteries through spells that sacrifice sanity, discovering disturbing and shocking clues.

The game has its flaws like the questionable grammar at times and a few other issues
but I can’t help but love it. The aesthetic of the game is exactly what I love most
and plus it’s inspired by Lovecraft and Junji Ito. What I like most is that it doesn’t really rely on jump scares even though there are some. It’s very atmospherical and the aesthetic adds so much more. And even though it’s pretty short gameplay it will entertain you for a while. One short step and you are minced meat. You can die or worse, go completely insane. From the start itself, you are told that the world is ending and that the battle you fight is a losing one.
