Mycorrhiza [Horror Manga Inspired] [Demo]
Posted: Mon Apr 19, 2021 6:15 am
Mycorrhiza is a love letter to horror manga in the form of a visual novel. Some of our biggest inspirations include the works of Junji Ito and Masaaki Nakayama.
While the protagonist is trying to find a way back home, reality distorts and people’s morals start shifting in cruel and unexpected ways. A strange plant transforming animals, a strange comedy trend and a strange building trapping people. Each of the three arcs explores different terrors. The game features a manga aesthetic (with CGs drawn by a manga artist), as well as a higher focus on dynamic audio.
The first arc is available in the demo. It features the aforementioned plants that transform people's pets into monsters and how these monsters are used by the pet owners to terrorize their neighbors. Arcs two and three will follow over the course of development.
We would really appreciate if you would share some feedback with us! Is the horror manga focused art direction of the game effective? Is the audio direction fitting and immersive? Did you find any bugs? Every bit would help us out a lot!
The demo can be downloaded on itch.io:
