That was a ton of fun! I'm glad I got to use my four semesters of Japanese to some use! I loved it! Quite spooky indeed.

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.

This game was AMAZING! For a 2 day project, the team did an excellent job the eerie music, the abandoned village, the dark water colors, they all played into giving me a sense of fear of what was to come. Truly a work of art. I really enjoyed!
Really enjoyed the game! I can tell that a lot of time and hard work was put into the creation of it, the hand drawn visuals are amazing and the story is able to wrap it all together rather nicely. Great work!
I really loved everything about this game! The best thing is the symbolism of the journey! What do you all think is actually happening here? Would love to hear your opinion!
Thank you! We're glad you liked our game!
We like to keep our stories vague enough so players can fill the gaps with their own readings.
And it's great to read them in the playthroughs comments on youtube!
Another very interesting Japanese style game to add to my playlists, I enjoyed this one and the ending left me wondering a few things. 5.5,
We absolutely loved playing this game! :D It had such an eerie feel and the art was absolutely beautiful! The whole team did an amazing job :D
Many thanks for your kind words: we're glad you liked it!
Your voice acting was touching and captivating. It added a lot to the atmosphere.
This game was different and something i enjoyed playing
This watercolor style WITH dynamic moving layers feels Amazing!
When no movement - screen feels like one solid image
but when it moves - whole thing gives nice deep sense of 3d environment
This is great contrast - i love it
also moments without any HUD elements feels like Art or Animation instead of game
and this is amazing - it gives much more immersion in story and environment
than any other visual novels or similar games
- i wish less "HUD elements" on screen and all HUD in same "watercolor" style
So they do not get out of style and do not break the immersion
But one thing I want for sure
to see more new games in same "watercolor" style with "deep" 3d environment feeling and sense of any motion
Thank you for this game : ]
i will remember it for long time..
PS. will be nice to see more story and longer time of play
Many thanks for your very kind and detailed feedback!
That technique of moving layers was a new experiment for us but we loved the result.
We'll try to create a longer and more complex game with that technique one day!
Wonderful and atmospheric. A definite favorite!
Can I just say how amazing the art is in this game! To say you completed this game in 2 days as well makes it doubly impressive.
Thanks a lot for your kind words and for playing our game.
The thumbnail on your video is cool!
This game was amazing and gave me such an uneasy, horror feeling throughout the game. I loved the art so much.
The game is so beutiful and creepy :)
Vous avez un sens de la mise en scène vraiment époustouflant. Je trouve qu'au-delà de l’expérimentation avec des élèves (ce qui est vachement bien), le jeu est d'une grande qualité. Le gameplay épuré sert une narration très rodée. Enfin bref, une petite heure de jeu dans laquelle j'étais vraiment absorbé.
