The Radio Station is a Horror Game by Chilla's Art.

The game has you playing as the sibling of a radio show host named Masaki Onikawa. You've just gotten word that Masaki is dead. The police have written the death off as a suicide, which you don't buy for a second. You're certain something happened on the show. So, taking the keys you got from Hashimoto, you decide to go up to the radio station in the mountains, where your brother worked.

The game was released on October 30th, 2021.

The Radio Station contains examples of:

  • Always Night: It's always dark out.
  • Autosave: The game has this function. You know it's happening when you see "Saving." in the bottom right corner of the screen.
  • Cassette Craze: There are seven cassette tapes in the game, all of which contain recordings of Masaki's radio broadcasts.
  • Extremely Short Timespan: The events of the game happen over one night.
  • Fade to Black: How you enter/exit the car, and interact with other things in the game world.
  • Infinite Flashlight: The game's flashlight never needs any new batteries.
  • Lock and Key Puzzle: You can't get into the radio station until you have the key.
  • Multiple Endings: There are three in the game.
    • Ending 1: You read the letter your brother did out loud, and the room floods with blood, which a ghost rises out of. It then apparently drowns you in the blood, and your intended fiance narrates about how she needs to find out what happened to you.
    • Ending 2: You read the letter out loud, and the room fills with blood, which a ghost rises out of. You make a recording warning people not to read the letter, "The Darkness Of Tonako", before the ghost drowns you. Then there's an online conversation about the letter and the warning not to read it, indicating it's become an Urban Legend people will feel compelled to look into.
    • Ending 3: You find the final tape on top of the radio tower. You have it fixed up and listen to it, and it's Masaki reading the poem. You bring it to the police the next day, but the tape is empty. You give them the poem, and a junior cop comes along and reads it out loud after you leave. He screams and dies, and the paper is suddenly gone, leaving the first cop wondering.
  • Notice This: Things you can interact with have a yellow question mark above them.
  • The Place: The Radio Station, naturally.
  • P.O.V. Cam: You view the game through the protagonist's eyes.
