■ Summary

The Tokyo metropolitan area’s H City. In this suburban city, a strange rumor has been spreading recently. Those who possess the “mark” will die. The “mark” is unexpectedly engraved onto the body, as if it was a chewed up birthmark, and is said to result in an unknown death.

As a matter of fact, a strange incident occurred where someone met a suspicious death. This incident has become an urban legend, and has propagated various speculation such as it being the result of a ghost encounter somewhere or unknowingly coming into contact with a curse.

Having lost your memory, you stand before a western-style house said to protect those who possess the “mark.” As if drawn to something, when the doors to the house open, you’re greeted by a beautiful doll who is the lord of the mansion.

“Welcome to Kujou Mansion.”

The doll continued to speak.

“You will die if you stay like this.”

“But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a way to be saved.”

The countdown to “death” had already begun…

Death Mark

The mysterious “mark” signifies the countdown to an engraved death in exchange for memory. Together with the “Marked Persons” burdened with the same fate of death, and while benefiting from the advice of the beautiful doll Merii, explore “Spirit Spots” where there exist fearful “monsters” beyond human understanding, and seek out a way to survive the curse…

Exploration Where You Can’t Afford A Moment of Carelessness

Choose a partner from among “Marked Persons,” people who possess the same “mark,” and separate into pairs to explore and investigate in search of a way to solve the curse of death. However, when faced against “Spirit Spots,” a strange phenomenon occurs as if completely refusing the entry of someone living.

Investigation That Requires “Sound Judgment”

■ The Terrors that Attack the Player

“Beings You Must Never Encounter”

At “Spirit Spots,” there is the risk of encountering horrifying monsters. Your actions during exploration may sometimes lure them, so you must always be cautious to avoid contact with your worst fears.

“Instant Death Upon Encounter”

An encounter with a monster signifies “death.” If you confront it, it will gradually close in on you and you’ll meet your certain demise. When the despair draws near, your “choices” are what will distinguish your fate.
