“There is no bigger shadow, than that of mankind.”
Dark Pleasures is a story about a young man named Amano Ryousuke who moves out with his family to Asuka City, core of the Asuka region.
Due to his parents job, he has been moving out every year since he was a child, thus forcing him to make a new life from scratch over and over again. Now a teenage boy, he has learned how to deal with that situation, no matter how much he actually hates it.
For the first time he arrives to a new town on May, meaning the school year has already began. This is not a situation he cares about, as it is not much more different to what he has lived in the past.
He starts attending classes in Goraikou High School, a private school labeled as one of the best of the country. He soon gets amused with how big the school is, as no other school he visited before is a fair match to it.
Being a transfer student, Ryousuke quickly draws his partners attention. However, he soon notices there is a tall black haired girl no one talks to. He gets initially curios about her, but soon his attention gets turned to an odd advice his classmates gives to him "Don't go out at night".
As a very rational person, Ryousuke realizes his partners warnings are due to the many serial killers roaming the town. As he is a fan of detective novels, he feels somewhat excited to the idea of solving a mystery of such nature. Still, he is smart enough to know how silly would be to play detective on such a serious matter. He dismisses the thought, and instead attempts to focus on having a normal student's life.
However, he soon finds out that some mysteries are not impossible to solve, as his path becomes intertwined with that of the black haired girl...
Being split into three different arcs, Dark Pleasures will put the player into the role of Ryousuke Amano, a teenage boy very smart for his age with an innate talent to solve mysteries. Every arc will cover a different side of the story, going back and forward between High School life and detective/mystery situations.
Follow Ryousuke through his journey, as he faces the town’s shadow as well as that of mankind.Characters (Some of them)Amano Ryousuke
