Welcome to the second month of the dreadful year, time to make things darker with MAMIYA. The title from the wonderful folks over at Kenkou Land is coming with the help of Fruitbat Factory. Experience a story of a constant struggle with existential dread unlike any other. You may think to yourself that there’s no way this demo could impress. However, you’re very wrong as this special demo has over five hours of story just to make you drop your jaw. To clarify, it’s a special demo as the game lines up with many wonderful entries to the Steam Game Festival. Several visual novels will be at the festival, but none as dark as this one. As a result, it’s one of my own recommendations from the festival that you should check out immediately. The full game will launch this upcoming Spring for $19.99. Play it right now!
The demo for MAMIYA – A Shared Illusion of the World's End is now playable in the Steam Game Festival!

What’s the story behind MAMIYA?
Tokyo, during the year in which the world was prophesied to end.
As we clung to reality, too spineless to throw our lives away together, we met Mamiya.
At a friend’s funeral, the entire crowd was weeping and mourning, while we thought to ourselves that the death of a single person had no meaningful impact on the world at large.
We slept, woke up, and went through the same daily grind as ever. At least, that’s how it was supposed to be.
Then Mamiya appeared…
Before we even knew it, the mysterious child named Mamiya had wormed their way into our daily lives. They slowly, but surely, became something of an emotional support. They’d brought us down a new path.
A path that would surely lead us to our deaths…
In case the text alone doesn’t do it for you, here’s the opening movie! Go show your support to Fruitbat Factory!
