The first in a planned ‘anothology’ of sequels to Sense – A Cyberpunk Ghost Story, SENSEs: Midnight is set to launch this summer. Players won’t need to have played the first title however, as SENSEs: Midnight aims to expand the universe with entirely new, classic survival horror gameplay.

Set in a dystopian cyberpunk vision of future Tokyo, SENSEs: Midnight casts the player as a university student, Uesugi Kaho. Kaho has a passion for occult and paranormal phenomena. While in Japan visiting family, she looks into a local urban legend but quickly gets in over her head. She awakens vengeful spirits who pursue her through a lonely night of terror in Ikebukuro Walking Park.

Inspired by genre classics, SENSEs: Midnight turns back the clock on survival horror. Old-school tank controls and fixed camera angles are par for the course, presenting its original narrative in 3D. Players will discover the secrets of the park via environmental storytelling. They must manage limited inventory slots carefully to avoid backtracking. Weigh up the risk and reward on puzzles that may alert vengeful spirits. Use hiding spots to temporarily elude your pursuer. And remember, there is only one place you can safely save your game!
