What can I say? October 8 is a story that takes place entirely on Halloween night, and it's all spooky mischief from there. It's played mostly VN Style in a vibrant RPG structured backdrop, although there will be more interactive gameplay and options later on, and focuses mostly on the plight of a group of girls caught up in the strangest night of their life- a night that may well be the rest of their life.
“For I am the witch who lives in this lair,
A lair of games, a night to scare.
Here to play but only a single game with you,
Truth or dare.”
“There’s no going back now..”
