A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

A girl takes a night train heading to an unknown destination...

Yûrei Station ("Ghost Station") is an adventure game inspired by Japanese ghost stories. It was written and designed by Atelier Sentô, based on memories of their life in Japan, and on the trains they used to take at dawn.

The graphics were hand-painted with pencils and watercolors by high school students. It was done in 2 days (March 6 and 7, 2017) during a workshop at "le Pôle des Arts" of La Joliverie in Nantes.

It was a great game. I love the art work and engagement with the way it was drawn and the puzzles. The Japanese architecture, figures from folklore, and atmosphere was cool. I know basic Japanese so it was cool deciphering the puzzle. Would love to see a full game similar to this style!

Thanks a lot for your feedback! We'd love to make a full game in this style. Maybe one of these days...

😊👍

This game was made during a workshop and we love how it looks (with all its qualities and flaws). But, of course, for our future projects, we won't work with highschoolers again. We'll do the art ourselves.

any way  everything  begin whith a small thing so continuous getting better and better  and you will see how everything will comme to you and  your team

Thanks for your encouragement!

Sorry if this is too sudden, but is there a chance I can help add Arabic to the languages?

Hi, we appreciate your offer but, unfortunately, we don't have enough free time to add more languages to our previous games. Sorry!

No prob dude!

Thanks for responding😘

alguém pode me ajudar com o enigma da máscara

Read the last message on your phone: if you observe carefully you can recompose a word. Make the mask say it by clicking on the eyeballs in correct order. Hope it helps.

That was amazing. Great job.

Thanks a lot!

I have a 10.12.6 Sierra mac and it worked for me today! Such an incredibly gorgeous game, such hard work and such beautiful payoff. Really loved the plot also

Thank you for the feedback!

I cant play it on mac, it needs to be updated. I was looking forward to play it 🥺

We're so sorry: we don't have a mac so the mac version of the game has been released untested. We hope you could solve your problem and play the game.

Waah, thank you so much for the fanart!
It's very beautiful!

wow, really amazing animations. You can tell a lot of heart was put into it. Plus the game just has a good feel to it, not as corny as others

Found some quality game....nice work , it was good experience lookin forward to other games from you guy

I really liked the artwork the end. I wish I knew more about the story.

Really nice art and an interesting story. The puzzles weren't that hard but at the same time they weren't that easy, good game! Here's a video, hope you enjoy

I enjoyed the game but i dont undwerstand who that guy was :( and the art was amazing great work!!

Beautiful work. I was amazed at how good this was, since usualy I do not play such games. One of the puzzles I kinda got by accident even when I did not understand it. Yet, great work and lovely how much love went into this.

Here is my Video if your interested.

Beautiful game, really liked the artwork. The puzzles were good, not too hard but still make you think about it.

I had so much fun with this game! Beautifully made. I loved it!

I absolutely loved this game. The art was refreshing and a unique take on horror games. If you are interested in my gameplay I will link it below.

Thank you very much for creating such a cute game based on the culture I grew up with. Beautifully drawn and presented by hands...

I had quite a while back played this on my YT 

I really enjoyed the artwork and the thought behind this game, it's rare to actually see a game that has been handmade drawings, As an artist myself, this is one of my favs, It gives more ideas that games Do not have to be made only with a computer, that you can make it out of anything

The art is super beautiful, and the story is creepy and mysterious, not being too vague nor too obvious. The puzzles are fun, and it's a great short.

Awesome game! Great atmosphere and music!!!

SUCH AN AMAZING GAME.

This was a beautiful game to play. I Hope you enjoy the video I made on it :)

THIS GAME ... T_T


Great work!

Thank you very much for this experience. I'll keep an eye on your next projects. Many thanks again.

Beautiful artwork and a very Ghibli-esque feel while also managing to keep the hairs on the back of my neck stand at attention. It was subtly eerie and wonderfully crafted and you can tell a lot of love went into this game. ♡♡

I love the simplistic and yet really nice drawings, the story is so intriguing and mysterious, I love the simple little puzzles, and the interesting 2.5D perspective, and the atmosphere, I honestly just really love this game. And the fact that it was made by high schoolers in only 2 days, just blows my mind. The only complaint I have (and it's very small) is that I believe the stepping sound could have been done in a way so that it doesn't always sound the same, but trust me, I loved everything else! I'd probably give it a 9.5 out of 10!

I love it! The graphics is hella good, your da best!

Thanks a lot!

I love the art style, story and gameplay! It's lovely and unnerving- the hallmarks of a good ghost story!

Ghost stories are a great subject. We hope we can make more of these in the future.

I always enjoy the games you make! I love the art style and how the game is both beautiful and unsettling. Great job!

Thanks a lot for the video!

It was great experience to play this.

The strongest + of this game was graphics, i really enjoyed this kind of handdrawn style with those watercolors.

i surely would recommend this game to anyone and im looking forward to yours next game.


Have a nice day!
