Izanagi Games announced Yurukill: The Calumniation Games releases on July 8 worldwide for PC via Steam. Here’s an overview of Yurukill: The Calumniation Games from the PC (Steam) page:
Pardon or kill. Let the madness begin.
At the edge of despair, lurks the unsettling past, and an unspeakable truth!
What secrets are hidden in the twisted attractions of the secluded amusement park, Yurukill Land?
Who will emerge victorious from its cruel, fiendish games?
Convicted Prisoners face a series of attractions to clear their names in Yurukill Land. If they and their Executioner partners overcome the Yurukill Games, they will be absolved of their alleged crimes.
Escape adventure: exploring the attractions
Prisoners must attempt to solve puzzles and uncover hints about the crimes they stand accused of, and risk their very lives in Maji-Kill Time—life or death cross-examinations. One wrong answer, and they stand to lose it all. As players progress, the grim complexities of each incident will come to light.

Prisoners pilot Yurukill Fighters through a series of virtual reality challenges. In High-speed Quizzes, they must put their understanding of each case to the test and choose the correct lane in order to gain extra lives. In the Prejudice Synapse, Prisoners present the evidence they acquire during their investigations to try and destroy the prejudices lurking in their Executioners’ heads. Each top-down shoot ‘em up section ends with a nail-biting showdown with your Executioner. Plus, with a choice of Easy, Normal, and Hell difficulties, beginners and experts alike will have something to test their mettle with.
