Added DiffLines:

* DeliberatelyMonochrome: The entire demo is in strict black and white.


Added DiffLines:

* HealThyself: The demo shows that you can restore 2 Stamina with the "Cauterize" spell, though this is a one-time thing.


Added DiffLines:

* SanitySlippage: In the demo, one of your character's stats is Reason, which is reduced when she encounters horrifying events. Having it fall low enough may eventually lead to self-harm or worse.


Added DiffLines:

* ShearMenace: Your main antagonist at the start of the demo is a "tall woman with scissors", a malevolent ghost with three creepily conjoined faces. While her bloodied scissors are entirely normal-sized, she'll still eventually kill you with them if you don't flee in time, due to being invulnerable until you succeed in bringing her down to a vulnerable physical form through a ritual.

* BreatherEpisode: The shop is run by a Shiba Inu, who doesn't seem sinister. Subverted in that the longer you stay in the town, the shop may eventually close down because the dog has "disappeared".
* ByTheLightsOfTheirEyes: In your apartment, if you look through the peephole, nothing seems to be at your door... except if you look far back enough, there seems to be someone or something standing in the shadow and you can also see the light of their eyes. Sometimes, this can lead to a JumpScare in other times when you look through the peephole.
* {{Cult}}: A cult can go after Aiko due to her background. They'll always be after you when you play as Aiko. In one encounter, when Aiko goes to the hospital and gets anesthesized, her face can be mutilated by a cult member that has infiltrated the hospital staff.
* TheDarknessGazesBack: In the mansion, you can encounter the Eyes in the Dark event, which shows three pairs of eyes watching you from behind a door to a dark room. The image is captioned, "You feel watched.", and you lose one Reason point.
* EvilTeacher: You can encounter the "substitute teacher", a woman with large bulging eyes and a twitching lip, who says she can be your new biology teacher and asks you to help her unpack in her new office.
* GlasgowGrin: The "Kuchisake-Onna" (the woman with the slit mouth) is one of the monsters players will need to contend with.
* HorrorHunger: The Hunger curse depicts a character with a bloody mouth and a psychotic look in their eyes. At the cost of one Charisma point, you gain one point in [[ImAHumanitarian fighting Human enemies]] ("You smell nice.").
* IdolSinger: Mizuki aspires to be one.
* JumpScare: If you look through your apartment's peephole. Sometimes, there's nothing there, but occasionally, a monster might be there [[IKnowYoureWatchingMe looking right at the peephole]].
* JustBeforeTheEnd: The story is about the brink of society coming to an end as the world falls into chaos. The goal is to get your characters to survive for as long as they can... with as much sanity intact.
* LighthousePoint: The lighthouse of the town is seen as ominous. You can choose to investigate it if you want.
* MirrorScare: In one event, if you look at the mirror, your reflection twists your face and it shimmers while the caption also notes that this is a sign that Gozo is coming and that you have now acquired a Curse.
* NauseaFuel: In the Itadakimasu event, you go to a local restaurant and order the catch of the day. It's sushi... except with ''bloody eyeballs'' and some sort of bug (a cockroach?! Or at least something with legs that ''isn't'' a shellfish) nigiri. You lose one Sanity point because of this.
* NightmareFace: Numerous instances.
** Your character can have one if they wear certain masks, like a cult mask or a karakosa mask.
** Mizuki can encounter an enemy called the Aspiring Model, who tries to cut off your face because she likes how pretty it is. Fight back and you rip off her face, and yet she still manages to have a GlasgowGrin and she'll cry out that you ruined her face.
** The face of a Toilet Ghost (a ghost girl in the restroom) is hidden under a shadow, except for [[ByTheLightsOfTheirEyes their eyes]], which go vertically on the side of her face instead of where her eyes should be.
** Red Cape's face looks like a mask, which he can remove... revealing that it really is his face, leaving a giant hole where his face should be.
* {{Oculothorax}}: Ath-Yolazsth the Demented Towering Eye, an Old God that is a giant eyeball in space. As it gains more followers, it gets more and more closer to Earth...
* {{Retraux}}: The game looks like it came straight out of the Macintosh adventure game library.
* SearchingTheStalls: In a school restroom, one of the bathroom stall doors may mysteriously open. You can choose to investigate it or run. If you investigate it, [[ToiletHorror there may be a ghost girl]].
* ShoutOut:
** One of the monsters is [[Manga/{{Uzumaki}} Uzumaki, the Eternal Spiral]].
** The town's ominous lighthouse may also be a reference to ''Manga/{{Uzumaki}}''.
** Atlach-Nacha, the Spider God, is a [[Literature/CthulhuMythos Lovecraft monster]].
** If you work at the City Docks and fail the strength check, the text notes that you find the stench of the fish unbearable, which may be a reference to ''Manga/{{Gyo}}''.
** The shop stand is run by a Shiba Inu, referencing a tourist attraction in Tokyo with the same thing.
* SelfHarm: If your character starts to [[SanitySlippage lose it]], they may do this.
** In one example, they may ''jam a glass shard in their eye''. As a result, your character's Reason will go down, but their Perception may increase because [[ViolationOfCommonSense supernatural reasons.]]
** The "paranoid" card displays the person chewing their nails hard enough that their nails are bleeding.
* TakeThat: In one event, you can meet a horror mangaka who is struggling to come up with a satisfying ending to his story. If you have enough experience points, you'll tell him of your horrifying experiences and he'll pay you while also noting that his story might be a huge hit now. If you let him be, he decides to have the ending be AllJustADream and he'll be sure that his story will be a bestseller while you roll your eyes and leave.
* TimeBasedMission: Not necessarily, but the game becomes progressively more and more harder (such as the dog shop closing) the longer you play as the Old Gods are awakening, so things will be easier if you try to complete your cases as fast as you can.
* ToiletHorror: You can encounter ghost girls in the restroom stalls.
