―――A story of revenge.

The demon Yukie has subjected the world to an Eternal Winter, feeding off the lives of humans for countless years.

The First Man was drawn from the world of story by Yukie.
They fell in love, but one day the man disappeared,
and Yukie fell into madness, thriving in an eternal winter.

Yukie's children all have blue eyes, proof of their lineage.
It is a fragment of their mother's power of the snow.

Lead the hero Yukiji on a journey of vengeance, to the snowy mountain where Yukie resides. The story will proceed in a movie-like fashion.
We are proud to say the game is fully voiced (voiceover can be turned ON/OFF).Message from the publisherHi, I’m Hugo and I manage localization at Playism. I fell in love with YUKIE on my first playthrough and am thrilled to say the game is finally available in English!
An Eternal Winter reigns over the land. Yukiji, a young warrior is determined to end this and avenge his forefathers by slaying the beautiful demon Yukie. A traditional fairytale that seems like it could have just popped out of Japanese folklore.
But what makes YUKIE stand out to me among narrative-based games is how well the sum of its parts – such as the art, musical score and writing – fit together so well as a whole, to create the captivating atmosphere of Yukie’s cursed yet beautiful winterland.
Apart from the text playing a major role in any story game, it was important for us to preserve the poetic phrasing and classic writing style of the tale. For this we enlisted the help of Timothy Borreson who took great care to keep the essence of the original Japanese text. He has worked on titles such as Brave Frontier, Armored Hunter Gunhound EX, Artifact Adventure and its upcoming sequel Artifact Adventure Gaiden.
On their path to revenge the player will encounter wolves, crows and legendary beasts that are hostile towards Yukiji and will have to fight their way out of these situations. To attack or defend, the key must be pressed the exact moment they hear the enemy approaching. Yukiji will also gain new powers along his journey, to help him in and out of the field.
Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy playing!

Yukie: A Japanese Winter Fairy Tale reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
All over Freud. If you read the story in the description-then consider that everything is so, and if not read... The Main Hero-the Sixth. The First called from the world of fairy tales and legends Yuki, who slept with him and conceived a son. Later, the First disappeared, the village shrouded in eternal winter, and the Second grew up and the Warden sent him to fight with his mother Yuki, who conceived of him child and gave birth to the Third. And The Second one is gone. Third... Total our Hero-Sixth. The Novella is very impressive. Peculiar, I would say. But this originality I liked. The Gameplay is interesting, but minimal. Such as should be in the Novelle. Without the gameplay can be not so interactive, and with the complex gameplay-it's not a novella. Here Novella is with the capital letter, as it is a beautiful complex story, not "boys-girls". The Atmosphere is addictive. I didn't seem comfortable, but addictive. In This foreign world there is a charm, an enchantment of eternal winter and history which stretches for generations and is marked by a hard sin from the point of view of human civilization. The Problem is, Yuki is not a Man. All Five, Yuki, Hero and Warden-worked characters. As Much as possible in a small interactive novel. At the same time I liked the painting of Five. In them there is something fantazino-boundless, ancient and graceful. Something close to the Japanese engravings and the image of an Asian fairy hero, not a pumping with a hefty sword, as more accustomed to us, Vikings. And no pumping in tight curls with its symbol on the chest... Sorry not on the forehead as more accustomed in modern America. A Hero with hair to the Sacor and a sword of two meters, thin as a twig, who drinks tea with his mortal enemy. Arguing about nature and life, about peace and about meaning. Thus stretching each sentence for ten minutes. And making significant pauses. Pause. And this minus I can not fail to mention. The Game is meditative. Slow. Do not like the slow charming in his winter drei-do not play. And № №?:%; № №; The ENDING "!! More precisely, a gaimer. Why make a bright white screen for fifteen seconds. Then you press the button. Then the screen disappears for ten seconds. This is "%:% C% №:%"%! If you do not have a responsive joystick or keyboard, you will die and this horror, just if you are not so smooth with the nerves of the joystick fly into the wall-or computer. I understand, of course, that this is done for the general meditative and maintaining the viscous atmosphere... But. Aargrggh. The Toy is very decent. But obviously not for everyone. The Defining virtue to me in it became very good attitude to several characters from Five. They're all unique. Some are simple-chic. The First one shocked me. I was shocked by the good. In the game is a series of moves from which you will open your mouth and break the jaw. If Of course you are imprisoned under fairy tales, under Fantezi. And They perceive fantasy, fantastic literature as deeper than Dostoevsky, Marquez, Leo Tolstoy (in words), Wolf and other depressjory.
