Idea Factory released Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly in Japan on the PS Vita in January 2015. The game follows a young woman who wakes up in an unknown Western house and is attacked by hideous monsters. As she runs away she wonders where she is, and who she is, as she has lost all memory of her past. She finds other men in the house who are in the same circumstances. All the inhabitants hold mysterious handguns. The protagonist and the young men must risk their lives to take part in a "black butterfly hunt," and gather the "fragments of kaleidoscope" that the monsters possess.
Idea Factory released 7'scarlet on the PS Vita in Japan on July 21. The game features character designs by Chinatsu Kurahana (Samurai Flamenco, Uta no Prince-sama franchise). The game follows college student Ichiko Hanamaki whose brother disappeared in the town of Okunezato the year before. Okunezato is gaining a reputation as a "mystery spot" location. Ichiko's childhood friend Hino Kagutsuchi finds a website called "Okunezato Forbidden Club" where people gather to discuss the mysteries of the town. The site is hosting an offline meetup in Okunezato during summer vacation, and so Ichiko and Hino go to Okunezato to try to solve the mystery of her brother's disappearance.
Idea Factory released Psychedelica of the Ashen Hawk on the PS Vita in September 2016. The game takes place in a town ruled by two powerful families: Wolg and Farji. In the town, any woman who has a red eye is considered a witch, a taboo existence. The protagonist is a young woman whose right eye turns red when she has strong emotions, and to protect herself from persecution she disguises herself as a one-eyed boy and lives in a rotted tower in the forest outside of town. She lives her life peacefully, until one day the town's mysterious treasure, the "kaleidovier," is stolen. With that incident, the protagonist starts to learn the secret of her birth.
