Ancient Japanese combine with evil folklore to create Hyakki Castle. The backdrop to this supernatural-themed game is set against 18th century Japan, the Edo Period to be exact. Hyakki Castle released this week on PC via Steam. A special promotional offer is now in effect, act now for twenty percent (20%) the total purchase. Instead of modern blood and gore visuals, Asakusa Studios provided a cohesive aesthetic by establishing haunting imagery using Ukiyoe art style.
In Hyakki Castle players must transverse the corridors to a haunted castle where unholy creatures now roam. Teamwork is the goal towards survival and Asakusa Studios asserts this with a two-party gameplay system. Players must strategize attacks with teams that may consist in any of the following warriors; ninjas, samurais, or monks. Hyakki Castle is a real-time dungeon Role Playing Game (RPG). Each character has specific attributes and classes that level up as the story progresses.
The aim of Hyakki Castle is to defeat the ominous Lord of Hyakki Castle! Do you accept the challenge?
•The 2 Party System is a new system in which the parties can be divided.
•It is possible to divide the parties of 4 into 2 parties (2:2 people or 1:3 people) at any given time. (* Only when party is together.)
