Developer Cherrymochi revealed new details about the current state of the dark mystery adventure game Tokyo Dark 2. Evidently, the studio must move on from the project as their team takes on other work to survive, leaving Tokyo Dark 2 on indefinite hold.
Currently, Tokyo Dark 2 has been in development for quite some time, and the developer has shared a quick look at where they have taken the title. Tokyo Dark 2 allows players to explore 2D and 3D environments as Agent Ito. The point-and-click elements are still there by the looks of it, but it seems like players would be interacting with the environment more in the entry.
The developer has also asked that if any publishers or partners would like to sweep in and save Tokyo Dark 2, they are always open to talk. However, right now, it looks like the title will be shelved until the team is at a better place financially. It’s unclear if this is due to the Coronavirus outbreak that seems to be putting many projects on hold.
Tokyo Dark: Remembrance takes place after Detective Ito’s partner goes missing. The more she investigates this case, the more it spirals into a nightmare as she must confront her past with events that don’t seem to line up.
The narrative is in the hands of the player as they make choices during dialog, which affect the outcome of the story. The game contains several endings with more available in this version of the game. Throughout the game, players will need to pay attention to Ito’s S.P.I.N (Sanity, Professionalism, Investigation, Neurosis) system, which keeps track of the decisions made and dictates which responses are available to the player. There’s also a New Game+ for players to go in a find new ending along with puzzle-solving through point-and-click adventure gameplay.
Tokyo Dark is available now on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC-via Steam.
