Shiin PS Vita Horror Game Launches Demo on May 18 Before Release on June 1
posted on by Karen Ressler
Game developer Experience announced on Friday that the first chapter of its Shiin (Death Mark) PlayStation Vita game will launch on the PlayStation store on May 18 as a demo. The company had announced in February that the full horror adventure game will launch on June 1 in Japan.
Sony first teased the game in December, and streamed the first promotional video in February and the second in March.
The demo will feature players investigating an abandoned school and making a "deadly choice." Save data from the demo will be transferrable into the main game.
The game takes place in H City on the outskirts of Tokyo. A strange rumor is spreading in the town that those who have a "mark" will die. Players play as a middle-aged man who has lost his memory, but has the mark. He finds himself drawn to a Western-style building called "Kūjō Hall" that is said to protect those who are marked, and a talking doll answers the door. The doll says that if nothing is done, he will die, but that there is a way to be saved.
