WORLD OF HORROR allows the player to navigate through a hellish world filled with creepy settings and horrific images with rogue-lite and turn-based RPG elements for gameplay. Additionally, players will be faced with unforgiving in-game choices that could result in something horrible happening to the character.

Moreover, other than drawing inspiration from Junji Ito and H.P. Lovecraft, the game is also influenced by a beautifully drawn, retro-stylized pixel art giving it a unique edge similar to Omori and Undertale.
