    Yomawari: Midnight Shadows – Game Explained-ish! (SPOILERS!?!)

    Please login to search this video.

    I can't put my finger on it, but something about Yomawari: Midnight Shadows possessed me to try to explain what was going on.

    Still have a ton of ideas on what some of the meanings and spirits could be, but this is just a take on the story over all.
    Though if you have other ideas or think I got something wrong, please let me know, always love some dialog on these subjects.

    Took my a bit longer to make as well which I hope is okay...
    Either way I hope you enjoy and look forward to whatever future craziness comes next, thank you! Keep being awesome and take care!

    1. Subscriber 95! This game was seriously cool. I love the art style. Did you ever play the other Yomawari game? Great review! Love the commentary. We're actually playing this over on our channel. Check it out! If you like it, give us a sub!

    2. The deities in these games have all more or less been forgotten and not worshipped, resulting in them getting angry/becoming corrupted. As you see in the game, Mr. Kotowari's shrine was previously swallowed by a dam, and it was littered with trash.

      One thing you didn't mention, is the implications that the girls have dealt with Malice before. The closer you get to him, Haru has visions of Yui making the same trip, and letter helping her from the cave. Yui also has bandages throughout the game, implying she was hurt. Also, note the wound Malice has. Popular theory is that Yui's other dog, Koro, died giving that wound, allowing the girls to escape. This also explains why Malice seems so focused on these girls.

      It'd be cool if you played Remothered: Tormented Fathers.

    3. "I don't know how someone found this out, but the main baddie is called Malice."

      Turns out I was the one who coined the name, writing his article in the wiki, but I can't take the credit. The Steam achievement for defeating him reads :
      Torn Asunder

      Overcame malice
      I just thought Malice was the perfect name for this asshat.

    4. One small thing worth noting is the fact Haru's new friend in this game is actually the protagonist from Night Alone. You run into her multiple times throughout the game and she even gives you the small flower. It's also implied that Mr. Yomawari kidnaps the kids so they don't get killed by the Mountain Spirit from the first game.
