PQube has teamed up with Japanese studio Art Co. to make visual novel Kotodama: The 7 Mysteries of Fujisawa. Due to launch on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Steam later this year, the high school-set game is PQube’s first IP and has been developed to celebrate the Hertfordshire-based publisher’s 10th anniversary.
Available to pre-order now on Amazon, the PEGI 16-rated Kotodama: The 7 Mysteries of Fujisawa puts you in the shoes of a new transfer student at Fujisawa Academy, where nothing is as it seems and every pupil hides a dark secret. According to PQube: ‘Having made a pact with Mon-chan, a sarcastic demon fox, you wield the power of Kotodama – a means of coercing the truth from those who seek to lie to you’.
If Kotodama’s Amazon page is to be believed, the upcoming visual novel will play on classic genre tropes and consist of seven chapters, each with its own mystery to solve. The game will also feature ‘interrogation battle’ scenes, which will see you ‘stripping your target naked – to expose the truth behind the lies!’.
