"Black Swamp" is an original game project following Maeko Yoshida, a teminally-ill college student as she's convinced by her friend Armie into signing up for a last-ditch clinical trial. However, within days of the trial's start, Armie is found mysteriously murdered, and the participants are trapped in the hospital with no way out.
The setting of the game is an abandoned Victorian-era hospital deep in Louisiana swampland.
The color palette is cool, featuring murky greens, blues and browns. Red is used sparingly in the design, emphasizing characters with cruel intentions. Stylistic inspiration comes from classic Japanese RPG-Maker horror games, as well as click-and-point visual novels.
