8Doors is a story-rich adventure game that is based on the Korean myth of “Princess Bari” and follows ‘Arum’ as she ventures deep into the afterlife in search of her father’s soul. Along the way she’ll have to navigate a treacherous path through purgatory which is beautifully presented in just three colors; Red, White and Black. 8Doors features a sprawling map that has 8 distinct regions (one for each “Door of Purgatory”) and a wide-range of monsters and bosses that bring Korean folktales to life.
