In a recent video interview, Kazunobu Sato, founder and Producer of Bokeh Game Studio, revealed details about the horror game currently in development at the studio. He discusses very briefly the concept that was pitched to him by Keiichiro Toyama, another founder and creator of the Silent Hill and Siren series, and what the studio hopes to achieve with this new horror title.

In the interview Sato states that the first impression he had of the concept that Toyama had pitched to him would make for a terrible game. However, he follows this up by saying that he means that in a good way.
He also mentions that the game will “mess with the player’s mind.” Another aspect of the game will require some element of sacrifice, and that “the scale of these sacrifices will be quite nasty.” There will also be an aspect of player choice regarding the paths that they will be able to take. The title is also described as an “action-adventure” game in the interview.
