Developer KOTAKE CREATE recently announced the game ‘The Exit 8’, which will be released in November and will be available in English.
Kodoani.com – In The Exit 8, you find yourself trapped in a seemingly endless underground passage of a subway station. As you try to escape, the same scene seems to repeat endlessly. You need to carefully analyze the environment and find a way out.
It seems that as you go through this passage, ‘anomalies’ appear. If you notice any abnormalities, you must turn back immediately. On the other hand, if there is nothing unusual, you should continue walking without looking back. Players seem to have to be wary of anything that seems strange around them!
The game’s underground passages are modeled after those connecting subway stations in Japan, with white tiled floors and walls, neon lights, and signs very typical of what you’d actually see in a subway Japan.
The Exit 8 is also inspired by Creepypasta and mundane spaces such as ‘The Backrooms’. Although the game is officially listed as a walking simulation, the behind-the-scenes elements and rather unsettling atmosphere in the trailer also hint at some horror elements.
