The same game in the horror genre, but the unique feature of Fatal Frame compared to other names (Resident Evil, Silent Hill …) is that the game exploits the secret fear of people through ghosts and appearances. spiritual image, making the gloom and mystery always cling. The heavy atmosphere of the game gradually “erodes” the mind, making the player obsess.

The first Fatal Frame game to feature the tagline “Based on a True Story” for overseas releases. The veracity of that claim is questionable. But if you change the line to “Inspired by personal events” it will be closer to reality, as creators tend to write what they know.

A game can heavily affect the mood of the studio that makes it. After all, watching scary movies alone can make you feel like ghosts are about to pop out of your closet at any moment.

More and more superstitious developers wear charms around their necks while working, and producer Keisuke Kikuchi wanted to hold a purification ritual to lift spirits and ward off curses.
