[PS VITA] Yomawari: Night Alone (horror)

My dog... Gone.
Sis... Went Looking.
They haven't come back.
No one's here.
So dark outside... So dark outside...
I'm scared.
Where are you?
I know... I'll go look for them.

(At night, every town... Changes.)


...Something's here.

Growing impatient, the girl decides to search for her missing sister and dog herself.

But when she steps foot outside, she realizes that this is not the same town. The darkness has made the town unfamiliar, and she appears to be utterly for the spirits that stalk her. The girl must hide from, outsmart, or outrun the hunting spirits while she searches for clues to find her loved ones.

Yomawari details exploration, items, and ghosts

Game Flow

Leave your house in the dead of the night, into the nighttime town. Explore the city in search of clues for your missing dog and older sister. The game progresses based on your discoveries and events.

When you complete your search for that day, you’ll advance to the next night. You can catch up on events that happened previous nights by reading your Diary.

Various things are lined up along the road and roadside. The majority of these things are covered in darkness, but can be seen through the shine of a flashlight. Sometimes there will also be fallen items that appear. That said, it’s important to proceed with your search with your flashlight shining.
? and !

As you explore, a question mark might appear above the girl’s head. Question marks indicate things that there are things in the girl’s vicinity that can be examined. As you approach them, the question mark will change into an exclamation point, allowing you to examine whatever it may be. When you’re near the target, press circle to examine it and you could pick up someone’s “Lost Property.”
Finding Items

Items you find during your search can be picked up and carried. There are various items you can find, ranging from a “Stone” lying on the side of the road to someone’s “Lost Property.”

Stone – These are commonplace on the roadside. You can throw them or use them as landmarks.
Money – These coins are required in certain places. They can be found all over the town.
Shovel – A shovel forgotten somewhere by some child. It can be used at specific locations, such as in sand.

Heart Rate System

If a ghost is nearby, the girl’s pulse will speed up and the screen will throb with the sound of her heart beat. While you can hear her heart beat, you cannot run fast and some actions are limited. There are some types of ghosts that you can’t usually see, so be careful if you start to hear her heart beat.

You can hide from ghosts in places like clumps of bushes and under signboards. While hidden, the screen is darker and your field of vision is narrowed, but because the ghost’s position will flicker in time with her heart beat, you’ll be able to know its approximate location.

If the girl is caught by a ghost, she won’t be able to advance to the next night. For every attack a ghost throws out, there is a way to evade it. Monsters become visible by shining them with light. When it comes to evading them, be sure to start there.
