Mr. Kohei's Horror Show is a psychological horror adventure developed in RPG Maker MV for the Pixel Horror Jam 2017.
The game features Kohei, a man who finds himself in a place "specifically made for him". Despite being in a completely different realm from reality, he seems to know what is going on and what is his objective. Along the way, he will be guided by two headless spouses called Groom and Grump. He also seems to talk to himself, sometimes...
The game focuses on exploration and dialogues. Along the way you can interact with objects to know more about the main character and the surroundings, as well as find items for "survival".
The main characteristics of the game is the "Stress System": as Kohei goes further in, there are certain events that will make him raise his "Stress Level". When reaching a certain pit, he will collapse and will be taken back to the Main Hub or the last "Safe Place". "Safe Places" are maps in which the player can let Kohei rest in bed or interact with additional objects. One can check Kohei's status through the menu.
Different items can calm Kohei down at a certain point. Saving, instead is done through consumable items found throughout the maps or by resting in a Safe Place. However, the game also provides an autosave feature whenever the player gets teleported in a new map.
There are no fights, but Kohei will have to solve puzzles in order to proceed; they're all tied to the main picture of the game.
