Okaeri is a Japanese horror game about a middle school girl and her mother who recently moved to a new house.
It's 6:00 pm, coming back home expecting a welcome from your mom, instead, she finds unexpected things happening before her eyes.
The game is inspired by short omniverse Japanese horror films.
Immersive experience: An atmospheric photo-realistic graphics intensifies the horror experience. The minimalistic design makes the player fully immersed in the ambiance.
VHS film aesthetic: VHS aesthetic emulates look and feel of CRT screens including phosphor screen trail and bleeding, VHS tape noise, interlacing, and jitters in the analog video signal adding extra immersion to the horror experience.
A short narrative exploration: An exploration heavily focused on ambiance and narrative. Collect pieces of the past and present to find out what's going on from the protagonist's perspective with native Japanese voice acting which enhances the player's experience. People who love games like Gone Home and The First Tree might love this part of the game. The testers played for about 20-40min.
Gameplay: This game is played primarily like a "walking simulator." I'd define it more as a P.T. like game.
Psychological horror: You are alone, but feels like someone is watching you. Keep going and you'll find out.

🎀 JAPANESE SCHOOLGIRL ALONE AT HOME? | Okaeri Full Gameplay Walkthrough
This game left a very unsettling fear factor throughout the game. I Loved it!
Just one thing bugging me; If Okaeri is truly the title of the game, it should be in katakana instead, right?
What does Okaeri mean?
Are there any plans for a Linux version ?
@Chilla's Art: when comes update 1.1/1.2? Love the design and the retro VHS graphic ;-)
Edit: thank you for update 1.2.
Loved It! The design is so perfect i felt exactly as if i was in a japanese village, and i watch a lot of animes :D. The plot and pattern leading to the end are super! Gave me a slight 'Grudge' vibe. Story is basically based on IRL happenings... Sad But I Loved It! Can't wait to see more from you!
Gave it a go...
