In this “Let’s Talk” episode I go over my first impressions of the PlayStation 2 survival-horror game Kuon.
The game’s story goes like this: The tune of Japanese taiko drums and the dark aria of children are heard every night. Residents wander like ghosts, and hungry demons creep in the darkness. The Heian (794-1192) period of ancient Japan was a time of great mysticism and magic. Set during this time period is a teenage girl who has wandered into a dark and gruesome castle, where mutated creatures and unimaginable horrors await. Together with multiple playable characters – exorcists (“Onmyoji”) sent by their master to uncover the castle’s mysteries – the young girl must master the powers of exorcism and Heian-period weaponry to survive the nightmarish world of psychological horrors.
I’d love to hear what y’all think about Kuon so please leave a comment. Here are my first impressions.
I hope you guys enjoy this video and that it introduces more of you to this highly original game.
Thanks for watching and thank you for all your support 🙂
I will be continuing this ‘horror’ theme next week when I will be reviewing Dead Space 2!
