Nanashi no Game for the NDS is one that I quite enjoyed. At times is kinda dumb lmao but overall it has a good atmosphere.

Also you could try Yume Nikki, although it is more experimental.

You can try Echo Night and Kuon, both of which were made by From Software

Also the creator of Silent Hill made another serie of games called Siren

And finally, the rarest, Germs: Nerawareta Machi is extravagant, many describe it as an open world horror RPG, it only came out in Japan and the only fan-made translation it has is in Spanish.

Seconding Yume Nikki. The Clock Tower series is pretty entertaining. There's also a good number of RPGMaker games with a similar aesthetic to Yume Nikki from back in the day that are pretty solid. In that vein I'd reccomend Ib, Ao Oni, Mad Father, and obviously corpse party. A couple of these have had remakes put out over the years with varying degrees of quality. Also related but not Japanese are two other Horror RPGmaker games OFF (which is french) and Space Funeral (which I believe is American and is fucking bonkers)

There's this really aesthetic RPG 2019 horror game called World Of Horror, the gameplay feels like an old Gameboy RPG title, but there's something really unique about it, the game is extremely heavily influenced by the work of Junji Ito, by the way, to the point that you'd think he was the art designer, so if you've loved Uzumaki or Tomie, check it out ig.

The Utahonotatari games come to mind, especially the 2nd one. That one has a glitch Easter egg with a what seems to be a dead woman in it. It wasn't localized / translated yet.

  • Cobalt:
    Mainline protestants are much more tame in their church practices, think organ music and hymns from the 1600s, they are also known to be a bit more liberal than the evangelicals and Baptists

    Same, most Christians honestly aren't terribly well educated on their own faith and it results in a lot of that shit
