A downloadable game

Sayako is a game heavily rooted in the exploration and horror genres, the first entry in a planned trilogy, but by no means an incomplete story by itself. 

It tells the the story of two teenagers who nearly 6 months after the loss of a close friend, find themselves trapped in a looping nightmare related to the events surrounding her demise. 

In a last ditch attempt to salvage their sanity, the two decide to head for the location those dreams hint to visit. 

The hospital where said friend, Sayako Noguchi, perished.

The Ancora Hills Sanatorium
Operational for 40 years, the Ancora Hills sanatorium served a vast number of patients while it remained operational, however, the reputation of said institution saw itself tarnished during the later run of its life, with varied reports of patient mistreatment and covered up negligence. The highly controversial case of Sayako Noguchi would become the last, yet greatest black stain on the records, right before the scheduled closure and decommission of the facility. 

Today, the intimidating structure still stands and remains largely abandoned, becoming an object of urban legends and vandalism.
