In this side-scrolling action-adventure game, you'll need to scour the inside of an abandoned hotel, looking for clues to solve the mystery of the hotel and ensure your escape from a mysterious, murderous mascot intent to kill. The fate of the girls' lives will change dramatically depending on your actions in the game. Online streamers Mio Ikoma, Nana Sakurai and Azusa Shiraishi travel to the locally famous haunted resort, the Hotel Izanami, at Nana's request to shoot a video there. It would be a film shoot at an average haunted location with no particular legend attached. To finish shooting without a hitch and get an end result that was vaguely horror-esque...was all they wanted. During filming, Mio gets separated from the group, and suddenly gets attacked by a mascot costume that has come to life. From that point on, the trapped girls are at the mercy of numerous horrors throughout the hotel. Why is a mascot trying to harm them, and why have they been shut in to the hotel with no escape? Can the three girls escape from the hotel with their lives? A livestream set in an abandoned hotel begins... ■Run from the mysterious mascot chasing you, and escape from the abandoned hotel! While exploring the inside of an abandoned hotel, a mascot swinging a bloody hatchet suddenly appears and starts chasing after the three streamers! When you encounter the mascot, run away quickly, hide yourself, and escape from its pursuit. One hit from the mascot's hatchet will lead to instant death (game over). ■Use hints and items to help you find clues on how to escape! While exploring the hotel ruins, you will come across various items and hints. Search every nook and cranny of the rooms to get items and hints that will help you survive! Some items will greatly change the fates of the girls... ■Is this a curse?! The livestreaming girls are cornered by the descent of a life-threatening horror! You'll be met with various frights while exploring the hotel ruins. Investigate your surroundings to get hints and use items you find to help the girls escape from desperate situations. You can even touch the girls, regardless of their plight... Is this also the work of the curse?!

Livestream: Escape from Hotel Izanami Critic Reviews

Livestream is on the cusp of being something really special. It has the right setting, the right concept, the right character designs and the right themes to give players something special. Unfortunately, the execution's a little off, and while the game is a lot of fun, it doesn't say as much as some of the greats in the genre do. It is, ultimately, just an entertaining and fanservicey horror game with some enjoyable puzzles to throw at the player. There's nothing wrong with that, and I must emphasise that this game is hugely entertaining. It's just unfortunate that it's too shallow to be remembered as one of the greats.

Livestream: Escape from Hotel Izanami proclaims to be a horror game with interactive ecchi elements. While the latter is sorely lacking, it does live up to being a ghastly look into a classic setting. The technological approach offsets what would normally feel like cheap tricks of misleading angles and jumpscares.
