The Letter has finally been released after a painstaking 2 years of development

After 2 years of development, independent Philippines-based company Yangyang Mobile are proud to announce the release of their imaginative first game The Letter, thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign. The Letter, dubbed by its creators as an “interactive horror visual novel” offers a unique cast of playable characters, each with distinctive personality traits, and rather morbid classic horror elements in a fully drawn comic-book universe.

The suspenseful “The Letter” centres around real estate agent Isabella Santos, who discovers an old letter in an ostensibly majestic 17th century mansion located in Luxborne City, listed for sale by her company. Six more unwitting colourful playable characters, including a high school teacher, a private investigator, an aspiring professional photographer and a young naïve couple enter a dark world of insanity that has diseased the Ermengarde Mansion for decades.

A distinctive trait of the game is that it contains at least 15 different possible endings, all depending on the choices you make throughout the game. Armed with a journal, enabling the player to jot down events in chronological order, the player will also possess the ability to manipulate the personal relationships of the characters and their respective journeys as they embark upon a terrifying adventure which could leave them either alive or dead.

Inspired by Japanese horror-movie classics such as Ju-on: The Grudge, Ring, horror jRPG games such as Mad Father and Corpse Party and the Korean web-based comic Bongcheon-dong Ghost, The Letter looks to be something for those who have an affinity for anime, graphic novel and horror elements. Yangyang Mobile has released gameplay footage depicting an elevator scene.
