The story of Yurukill (contraction of forgive and kill ) revolves around 11 characters forming teams of two (except a team that forms a trio). These characters were gathered by Binko, a woman with a face covered by a fox mask. This host explains that six of the people here are criminals sentenced to heavy prison sentences, but they will have the chance to regain their freedom.
To erase their slates, the accused will have to survive the different attractions of a park a little special named Yurukill Land, but especially to obtain the forgiveness of the other member of the binomial. In the main tandem formed by Sengoku Shunji and Rina Azami, for example, the first is accused of killing 21 people, including the Rina family. The accused must therefore overcome the trials and gain their redemption in the eyes of the victims, or rather the executioners because it is the title attributed to them here.
The official website of the game explains in more detail the course of each chapter, composed of a Visual Novel part and a Shoot em Up Party. In the first one, the survey will be conducted on attractions and discovering clues to solve puzzles. In progress, the player will get the necessary documents to reveal the truth. The accused will also be subjected to a cross-examination of the executioners and will take care to choose convincing answers without delay.
In the history of the game, the Shoot em Up part is the representation of a virtual reality program in which the accused are fighting for their lives while seeking the truth about the crimes they are charged. In particular, it will be necessary to respond quickly to quizzes and use the evidence harvested during the narrative phases to claim its innocence. These sequences will end on a boss fight against the executioner which symbolizes the final act of the fight against the accused to prove his innocence.
