Yuki Onna is a first-person PS1-inspired Survival Horror game by Chilla's Art.

Some kids have gone missing in the area recently. Two school girls and Jin, your son. While the police are conducting an investigation, you receive three photos of the missing kids along with a note saying "Come alone or I'll freeze them to death". Out of desperation, you head to an abandoned inn in the mountains to locate the children.

The game was released on January 2nd, 2020.

Yuki Onna contains examples of:

  • Abandoned Area: The game is set in and around an abandoned hotel up in the mountains.
  • Ambiguously Evil: At first it seems like the Yuki-Onna kidnapped your kids For the Evulz, but the ice fragments reveal that she's actually your kids' undead mother who's trying to protect them from your abusive ass. What still makes her motives suspect is the fact that she felt the need to lock her children in cages for the night.
  • Antagonist Title: The game is named after the Yuki-onna that chases and tries to freeze you.
  • Braving the Blizzard: There's a blizzard in the mountain the Player Character's gone to. It's not enough to stop them from searching the area for the missing kids.
  • Breath Weapon: The Yuki-Onna attacks you with ice breath when close enough.
  • Chainsaw Good: You can grab a chainsaw to use in the game.
  • Cobwebs of Disuse: The inn has a healthy number of cobwebs in it.
  • An Ice Person: The Yuki Onna will breathe ice at you if she's close enough.
  • Kill It with Fire: The only way to end the appalling apparition is after collecting the 7 dolls, get the canister from the block of ice and grab the flame thrower piece.
  • Missing Child: The plot is kicked off by kids disappearing. One of them is your son.
  • Monster Is a Mommy: The Yuki-Onna is actually the mother of your children, back from the dead as the titular monster...and she's trying to protect them from you.
  • Notice This: Items you can pick up give off a green aura.
  • P.O.V. Cam: The game is played from the Player Character's perspective.
  • Villain Protagonist: The "good" ending reveals that the protagonist is the abusive husband/father referred to in the ice fragments, and that he actually killed his wife (who became the Yukionna).
  • Yuki-onna: Serves as The Antagonist.
