World of Horror, also known by its Japanese title Kyoufu no Sekai (恐怖の世界), is an indie role-playing video game with a 1-bit retro graphical style, inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft and Junji Ito. The game was created by Polish developer Paweł Koźmiński, and published by Ysbryd Games. It was released into early access on February 20th, 2020 on Steam, GOG.com, and Microsoft Store.
The game takes place in the town of Shiokawa, Japan, where the player must explore various locations and fight otherworldly creatures in order to halt the apocalypse.
The game's developer, Paweł Koźmiński (a.k.a. Panstasz) worked on the game part time in between his work as a dentist. All of the in-game artwork was designed using MS Paint, with additional writing provided by author Cassandra Khaw. Music was composed by ArcOfDream and Qwesta. The game is still in early access, and there are plans to release the game on other platforms such as the Nintendo Switch upon the game's launch
World of Horror features turn-based combat where the player queues up actions and attacks to be used against hostile creatures, many of which are based on creatures from Japanese horror manga or urban legends, such as the Kuchisake-Onna. The game also incorporates adventure game and roguelike elements in its exploration and puzzle-solving.
Jordan Devore of Destructoid called the game "a rare treat" and praised its modular format, as well as its "eerie chiptune soundtrack and rising tension during a long, hard-fought run", but also criticized its combat as becoming tedious over long sessions.
Jenna Stoeber of Polygon called the game's horror "engaging", though she criticized the visuals as "mixed", and called navigating the interface "frustrating".
