[edit] Background

Kuon is based on an ancient type of Japanese horror story (Kwaidan). It beckons gamers to a dark and gruesome castle in the Japanese town of Kyoto, where mutated creatures and unimaginable horrors await the multiple playable characters. When the story starts, players can choose to play: "Chapter of Shadow" as Utuski, a teenage girl in search of her father, Doman -- the local exorcist (Onmyoji) -- who was sent to the castle with a few of his followers to investigate strange occurrences; or "Chapter of Light" as Sakuya, one of Doman's followers. After finishing both chapters, the "Chapter of Kuon" begins and the real horrific truth can be discovered as players assume the role of a master Onmyoji. Kuon's unsettling storyline and haunting moral connotations are achieved through gory visuals and vivid imagery, yet it also possesses the artistic and cultural beauty of classical ornaments and the famous kimono form of dress.
