    About PARANORMASIGHT: The Seven Mysteries of Honjo

    Set during the Showa Period (1926-89) in Tokyo’s Sumida City, Honjo, PARANORMASIGHT: The Seven Mysteries of Honjo is a multi-layered collection of spine-chilling ghost stories centred around several protagonists who possess the “power of curses”. Playing from the viewpoint of a number of cursed characters, players will investigate the mysteries of Honjo. During the day players will explore mysterious areas of the city, solve puzzles and find new clues to help them unravel the mysteries behind these seven deadly curses. Come nightfall, they’ll hunt or be hunted by other curse bearers. Players will have to master control of their own powers while working out how not to fall foul to the predations of those held by others during this supernatural ordeal.

    Players can expect to travel through the haunted underbelly of Honjo and be immersed in selected areas of the game through ambient, panoramic views of Sumida City, all of which are taken from real-life scenery using a 360-degree camera with the full co-operation and support of the Sumida City Tourism Division, the local museum, the tourist association, and the local community.
