New Darkness In The East takes place in Japan following an event known as ‘the skyfall’ in which a mysterious object has fallen from the sky in the middle of the night, fluctuating and disturbing energy sources throughout all of Japan. In the following days paranormal incidents appear to be on a drastic new rise. An ominous new atmosphere as fallen over Japan.

The backstories will focus on the life, their death, the original ghost legend, and lastly the new amplified curse of each new individual ghost presented. This take on Japanese horror combines the two great fears of ghosts and that of insects. Combining both of these unpleasantries into the creation of several new ghosts and stories of varying length inspired by the Japanese horror culture surrounding ghosts and urban legends.

Since then the nightclub has remained abandoned and all was thought to be fine until similar incidents started to arise in other nightclubs throughout Japan. Unbeknownst to everyone the original nightclub had become one of the first hive sites since the skyfall event. Becoming a festering cursed home for multiple dangerous spirits that were once attached to the venue...
