“It is quite dark”, were the words he used Keiichiro Toyama last month to describe the project. While the game will not be exclusively horror, it does use a side of the genre to make players feel uncomfortable: “The perspective that I have of the terror is to see the daily life altered”Toyama continued. “Instead of showing you creepy things, it’ll make you question your posture; we will face the fact that we are living peacefully“.
In an interview with the YouTube channel Al Hub this March, Toyama wanted to reformulate his answer, clarifying better what approach he has chosen for this project: “I want to express the kind of discomfort that people feel in the world today, which is something that I also feel”. Definitely, the coronavirus pandemic has been a very present factor in the production of this concept: “I think people are forced to live their lives under constant pressure natural hazards and, for example, the coronavirus. “
“People are forced to live their lives under constant pressure”
In this sense, Toyama concludes his February statements with the following message: he seeks to do a game that excites users as they go through it.

No doubt all these artistic words and concepts have caught our attention, so we will be very aware of the next news they want to share from Bokeh Games.
