Yurukill is an experimental adventure game is developed by G.rev. It mixes escape-the-room and shoot’em up sections, a combination that’s hardly common to say the least. The story is written by Homura Kawamoto, more known for his work on Kakegurui: Compulsive Gambler. Character illustrations are by Hiro Kiyohara who was the illustrator of the Another manga adaptation as well as the Valkyria Revolution game.

The story follows Sengoku Shunju, who has been accused of arson and the murders of 21 people. As he affirms his innocence, he’s now forced to partner with a victim of his alleged crimes, Rina Azami, in a weird place called Yurukill Land.

Faced with other pairs with similar backgrounds, they’ll have to fight for survival and to have their wishes granted at the end of it all. The criminals hope to be pardoned, the victims become executioners wishing for revenge. Nonetheless, they must work together in order to deal with the different attractions of Yurukill Land.
