Eighteen people from the Ushiromiya family stepped on the family owned island, none of them escaped alive. Are the murders committed by the golden witch Beatrice, a greedy heir/heiress, or is everything just a nightmare?

The PlayStation3™ version contains the first 4 episodes of the PC version. Although the game uses stills most of the time, characters are captured in a vast array of postures - Beatrice alone, has more than 500 graphics. The dialogues are fully voiced, listen to the blood curdling screams and eerie whispers.

This is an adventure novel, meaning players don't get to choose routes, but will be forced through all of the scenarios, watching the characters die again and again until either Beatrice wins through magic, or Battler wins through logic. This is a game for all horror fans with a good level of Japanese understanding and a strong stomach.
