Paranormasight: The Seven Mysteries of Honjo follows a mystery adventure where players will face curses that they must overcome. The gameplay takes on visual novel adventure elements where one will interact with other characters and uncover the truth of a string of incidents.

During gameplay, players will explore ambient backgrounds. With the full support and cooperation of the Sumida City Tourism Division, the local museum, the tourist association, and the local community, real-life scenery from Sumida has been photographed with a 360° camera and recreated as photo spheres that cover the entire sky and surroundings.

Players will look for clues, but exploring could lead them to a bad end. There are multiple characters and points of view, but players must deploy curses at the opportune moment or risk being cursed themselves. The main question of the game is, “How far would you go to bring someone back from the dead?”

Paranormasight: The Seven Mysteries of Honjo is now available on PC via Steam, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices via iOS and Android. The title was also recently verified for Steam Deck.
