You have been Marked...

A strange rumor is spreading through the shadows of Tokyo's H City: a mysterious disfigurement, like a grotesque birthmark, has been appearing on the bodies of certain individuals. Anyone who receives the Mark will soon cease to exist of unknown, horrifying causes.

Deprived of your memories, you arrive at a mansion rumored to protect the bearers of the Mark. As the doors swing open, the countdown to your demise has already begun...

8 / 10

Death Mark is one of the best examples of visual novels in the genre of horror, which lost a bit of subtle humor during the translation into English, while maintaining a stunning atmosphere of Japanese legends and sticky, increasing horror.

It's a rare game that can start off tense and then continuously ratchets up the mood to almost unbearable levels until the final moments of the final chapter – and an even rarer one that has enough alternative characters, dialogue, and endings to make it worth playing through more than once – but Death Mark succeeds where it really counts. There's plenty on offer here for both horror fans as well as those looking for a mystery that requires more than hoarding knick-knacks and waiting patiently for your character to officially notice something before you can proceed.

7 / 10

Death Mark is a quite frightening Visual Novel, but it's very linear and you need to download chapter 6 as DLC on PS VITA.

Death Mark is an involving, disturbing and addictive game that will grab the players' attention and feelings with its marvelous visual style, script quality and lifespan. In n adventure that is as thrilling as it can be terrifying, Death Mark is one of the most remarkable games to come out on the Nintendo Switch this year and an excellent starting point to more games of this genre.
