Fear & Hunger: Termina is the sequel to the horror j-RPG Fear & Hunger. The game takes place in the same universe, but it is a stand-alone story and no prior knowledge of the series is required.
I'll put the disclaimer here first, although the game does not go to similar extreme lengths as the first game.
CAUTION! The game has content that is ADULTS ONLY! This includes gore, drugs and violence. There is mild nudity in the demo too. Though there might be more explicit scenes coming later on! Many of the themes in the game can be found offensive. Anyone proceeding with the game should be aware of this and if you are sensitive to such subjects, it might be better to look elsewhere.
The game takes place in an alternative take on the real world, where religions and occult are a lot more prevalent and where ancient deities are still worshipped in everyday life. It's the 1940's and the world has just gone through decades of turmoil with two great wars behind and no end in sight for the despair.
While travelling on a train to your home, you fall asleep and go through a mysterious and ominous nightmare that seems almost too real to pass off as just a dream. After a sudden wake up, you learn that the train has stopped without a reason in the middle of a misty forest. You soon discover more train passengers, just as puzzled by the situation as you are. It is up to you to decide where to go from there. Something just doesn't feel right......
- Slow burn horror atmosphere

The teaser demo can be downloaded from itchio:
The game is made by me entirely, but many plugins were used in the development obviously. The full credits are included in the demo.
The full game will most likely go commercial, but it's a long way until that and I plan to release multiple demos as more progress gets made. Hope you guys like the game!
