A Horror-Themed SPRG In Initial Development
ITOYUI is a short one-stage SRPG that first appeared at C91. This version is basically a proof-of-concept that demonstrates the atmosphere of the game, its style, and future features. An updated version that includes expanded features was released at C92.
In the C91 version of ITOYUI, players battle a few monsters by summoning allies of their own. There are three types of allies to summon, and they are the only way the player can attack enemies -- the main character cannot directly attack.
The enemies are made of yarn and summoned allies reminiscent of marionettes, hinting, possibly, at the overall aesthetic of the game. As there's nothing outside of this one stage, however, this is pure speculation, although my interview with the developer suggests something like this through the other, yet to be implemented, abilities of the main character.
The C91 demo is short, but I certainly plan on playing the C92 demo to see where the game is going.
