Looks like a fun game. I'll be keeping an eye on this one.
Re:Turn - One Way Trip
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
Re:Turn - One Way Trip is currently in development and expected to be released in Q3 2019. More info will be announced later.
Re:Turn - One Way Trip is a 2D side-scrolling puzzle-adventure and horror game, telling the story of Saki, an English Literature graduate. After becoming engaged to Sen, Saki and her friends decide to go on a short trip away to celebrate. When they are halfway to their destination, their car breaks down and they are forced to camp in the forest whilst they wait for a mechanic.
In the middle of the night, Saki wakes up and finds herself alone. During her search for her missing friends, a strange shadow urges her to follow it deeper into the forest. As she explores her surroundings, an old abandoned train is waiting for its last passenger.
Anxious and afraid, Saki must find her friends and uncover the truth behind the mysterious, abandoned train.
Re:Turn - One Way Trip is a blend of several different video game genres, most notably point-and-click adventure horrors and visual novels. The gameplay is simple but effective: you move left and right, collect items and solve puzzles to progress through the engaging story.
- Intricate horror story
- Side-scrolling 2D with unique, hand drawn graphics
- Carefully composed music specifically for each situation of the game
- Minimalist interface so your focus never wavers from the experience
- Supernatural elements: Ghost
- Challenging puzzle
- Past & Present world immersive storytelling
The artwork in Re:Turn - One Way Trip implements a refined, hand-drawn pixel art style. A lot of work was put into the design of the environments and characters. The graphics are effective and refined, and our attention to detail has given Re:Turn One Way Trip its unique art style.
Saki is an English Literature graduate. She is a bookworm, as her degree would imply, and adores poetry and the theatre.
She is an only child. Her mother passed away during her time at University and she has been estranged from her father since high school. Other than an aunt whom she occasionally sees, she has no family other than Sen.
She met Sen when she was 19-years-old at University. They recently became engaged. She works in a library as a receptionist and she is also writing a novel in her spare time.
Trying to find her lost friends in a forest, she meets a lurking shadow that leads her to an abandoned train. Little did she know that lurking inside the train would change her life forever.
Sen is a Graphic Design graduate. He is a café manager and occasionally sells his artwork online. He first noticed Saki around his neighborhood and developed a crush on her. After finally meeting Saki, the two immediately became friends and have been inseparable since.
He has a younger brother and sees his father and mother often. His family are very fond of Saki and are thrilled about their engagement.
At the night of the camp, he disappeared deep into the forest without leaving a trace.
Re:Turn - One Way Trip is coming first to Windows PC, Mac and Linux.

This is awesome! I hope the full ver will release soon ^^
Loved the demo. Good job!
It took me forever to figure out the ring box. Really hoping this eventually gets a full release.
Great game! Wish it had more save points but yeah. Enjoyed it.
Ha, I didn't know I was about to get murdered by the rich kid and just stood there while he walked toward me. I hadn't saved since I finished the first section of the train.
A really wonderful game so far :D
Kind of sad it "ends" so abruptly without any hints on " to be continued" or "follow us on twitter" or wherever. Hope you'Re still actively working on it :D
This Demo was amazing!! But i'm so sad that its still a demo. And sadly I havent seen any info on when it will be released. Still, I loved it.
Absolutely adored this, binged the demo in about one hour. I'm super excited for the full release! :)
I Actually really like this game, i am going to be completing the series i have started with it! Really good story line and amazing drwaings!!
The art is what draws me in the most. I'm all for the horror/mystery as well. But it is the grammatical errors that get me >_< That's the only thing that takes me out of the game sometimes. \o/ plenty of time to fix it during proofreading! keep up the great work guys! i can't wait for the full release!
Ohhh no, I was hooked and then it ended! I didn't realize this was a demo, but I'd happily pay to play this down the line. I thought it was fantastic, atmospheric, creepy and gorgeously unique. Can't wait for more! A weird glitch I noticed is when trying to overwrite a previous save, the date of the save would not update (no idea if the save itself was failing to update as well, but I didn't want to die just to check). A dash button would also be nice for those occasional moments when you have to trek all the way to the beggining of the train :)
Loved the game. You have made an amazing job. Keep it up.

Has there been any progress? I loved this game so much from the art to the music to the story! I can't wait till this is a full fledged game.
HI! i wanted to pay this Game with Bitcoins but the fees would have been higher than half the price, so here is 10 regular lame dollars that are controled by the world bank and that won't take much value over time but whatever, im sure you'll appreciate it
anyway, thank you for bringing us this beautiful game !
ps, the musics are wonderful
Thanks ! We really appreciate it, this means a lot to us ! Glad you like our game, please do look forward for the update :)
What an incredibly intriguing game! The art style is gorgeous and the game-play flows brilliantly. I truly enjoyed this small jaunt into the realm of ReTurn - One Way Trip - I hope you do too :D
This is a great game !! It was fun to play ,easy to control , there were great scares and a great story line. the only flaw i seen was the ( im assuming ) translations , But they're not horrible, you can understand what there saying and what they mean. Also the art styles are great too I mean the environments are just beautiful. So overall its an awesome game.
This game was a blast to play through. I would really like to see the final product. I wasn't expecting this demo to be as long as it was so that was pretty nice. I made a 2 part play though of this game so I hope you enjoy. Keep up the great work, I would love to see more work like this!
This game is amazing! I love the art style and the whole atmosphere it creates! The storyline was very intriguing and got me hooked on it. However, I don't know if anyone else experienced this glitch but sometimes when I would walk into rooms or out, the game would freeze on the image of where I was trying to leave. For example I tried entering a room but would still have the image of the room I was previously in. Also I played this on MacOs. Besides this glitch, I love this game and can't wait to see it completed! <3
(There's no sound)
Thanks for your kind feedback ! Glad you enjoyed it :D
And thanks for the report about the glitch, we will look into it.
Wow. Just wow.
To the players:
The game itself is not scary and there are no jumpscares, but the atmosphere and story really make it creepy and disturbing! Something I prefer over cheap jumpscares most horror games do.
Although the game is only a demo so far, it will have you hooked instantly! The story and action starts really fast, so no endless time wasting on characters talking.
The puzzles in the game are pretty hard and the further you go, the darker the story gets.
If you're a fan of Asian horror, be sure to play this game, you won't regret it!
To the developer:
Thank you for creating this piece of art!
I absolutely loved every second of it. I'm not a big fan of puzzle games, as I'm very bad at them, but this game made me keep on trying cause I really wanted to solve the mystery!
Then I got to the end and ... I got even more questions!
I was really sad the demo ended, I can't wait to see more of this! I'll follow this and as soon as more content is released, I'll continue!
Will the game be free, if not, how much will it cost? And when do you think the complete game will be finished?
To finish my review, I made 4 videos on the game, as you already knew, thanks for watching by the way! I'd love to share them all here so others can watch them and hopefully give you and the game more attention, you really deserve it!
Thank you for your kind feedback, glad you enjoyed it ! For now, we can't say anything yet about price and when the full version is released as we are still in development. Please do look out for new updates :)
Always loved Pixel Style horror games, and this really kept me on my toes.
Thanks for releasing the demo, eagerly awaiting for the full release! :)
I really enjoyed playing this game :D
It had the right amount of tension and ambiance.
THIS GAME IS VERY AMAZING! :D
I love this! In some regards it's pretty simple with respect to gameplay, most of it is storytelling, which is done really well (especially enjoy the wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff!).
The item mixing and puzzles that are there are well made too though, and add that little extra challenge to proceedings. Looking great so far, keep up the awesome work! =)
Love this Game. I'm hooked. Love the art style, the story, puzzles and scares. I hope the next chapter will be out soon. I really want to finish Saki Story :)
Such a cute and genuinely creepy game! I hopd your team completes this game in the future, I am DYING to see how this ends! ♡ ♡ ♡
I love every element of this game. It's got great artwork, enticing music and, awesome gameplay. It just makes you want to play more and, more of it. This would be what pringles would be if it were a video game! You can't just have one you have to devour the whole thing!
That was pretty neat! I liked the ingame visuals and the character/gallery art were great. It was fun to play through and did leave me intrigued to see more.
As others have said, the English could benefit from a little polish, never really encountered any issues understanding it but it was just a bit off sometimes. The only other issue that comes to mind for me was the four digit box code. On all the notes, the date is written in American English form (i.e. month, day) but the solution for the puzzle was the British English form (i.e. day, month). This confused me for a while.
Thanks for pointing out the American English and British English in the box code puzzle, the English definitely will have to be improved. Appreciate your feedback :)
Hello! Are we allowed to record/stream any content of the game?
Hey vargonz! Sure, no problem :)
I just got done playing the awesome game both on my Japanese channel and my English channel! I haven't finished it yet, but I will be finishing it up soon! Feel free to take a look.
Here are links to both versions!
Maybe I was just doing something wrong, but is there a bug in the save game screen? After I had saved 3 times, I went back to overwrite my older saves. It saved fine, but the time was always the same as the first time a game was saved in each slot (the snapshot of the screen updated fine). Unfortunately this means that when I went back to load a saved game, I had no clue which one was the newest.
Hi Aceldemia, Unfortunately yes, there is a bug in the save system. It does overwrite the file but it does not update the time and date when the game is overwritten, sorry. We will be working on fixing this. Thanks for playing our game !
I really like this game, cute and creepy with a hint of puzzling. I enjoyed the first part of the demo, and look forward to continuing to the rest of it. The English dialogue is a little off, but not enough to take anything from it. Can't wait for the full game!
Thanks for playing our game ! Yes, the dialogue is... still need a lot of improvement >< but we hope you still enjoy the ride.
Looking forward to your next part :D
The game is excellent and I'd like to help you spreading the word about it. Let's discuss it via email if you want. Mine is email@example.com!
I played this game on my channel! I really enjoyed what y'all did here. Great atmosphere. The graphics are adorable! I look forward to playing the rest of it!! :D
Thank you for playing our game, please Feel free to give us any feedback. hope you enjoy it :D
Where do I even begin with this one...it's beautiful, and simply fantastic. Right away I could sense the love and passion that's been put into this game, the areas of the game look fantastic, and the music used it suites the style well.
The atmosphere is set up perfectly here, right off the bat you feel a sense of unease being in a forest at night, however you're accompanied by your friends but that comfort is quickly stripped away from you as you have to venture out into the forest in search of your companions. The forest is mysterious, dark and creepy but the real show happens once you make it to the train. The train cars are beautifully detailed inside and give you a sense of dread as you explore and uncover the mysteries that surround it.
The game has a great cast of characters that you slowly get to know over the course of the game, mostly through notes and drawings but sometimes through really old flashbacks that set the tone for the world that's being built up.
Despite only being a demo, I can tell that this game is going to be fantastic once complete. I hope you don't mind but I've started a let's play series of the game's demo on my channel.
Cheers and best wishes to you.
Thanks a lot for your kind word, please do look forward to the updates :) no problem on let's play series, actually we have to thank YOU for helping us sharing the game
I wonder when the full game will be released? :)
