hololiveERROR puts hololive VTubers in Horror Game

VTubers have shown that they can do everything from sing and dance to visit actual conventions, so why not have a VTuber horror game? At least that’s the premise behind the “hololiveERROR” horror game project from the VTubers hololive.

A three and a half minute trailer has dropped for it. For the best effect, you might want to put this on full-screen and turn off all the lights.

The trailer follows a live-action person typing on a computer and pulling up hololive imagery. From there the person (i.e., you) ends up in a creepy, abandoned school building where the lights flicker. Your only company is VTuber Tokino Sora, but she’s there one moment and gone the next, and acting in a very unsettling way.

The game said that it is coming soon and gave the tagline “We’ll be friends forever, won’t we?”

The video also lists a website, but as of now the website just offers the same video and gives you ways to share it on social media.

Why do a horror game out of these virtual talents? Japan is known for its horror stories, especially during summer time, and a quick look at Tokino Sora’s official biography shows, among other things, that she’s already a fan of the genre: “Debuting on September 7, 2017, she is the first Virtual Idol of Hololive Production. She loves singing and horror games, and her dream has been to ‘hold a live concert at Yokohama Arena’ since the very beginning. She had her major debut at Victor Entertainment in March 2019. On her road to pro idol, she played a role in the TV show ‘Watanuki-san Chi’ while also running a podcast known as ‘SoraAoto!’ She also takes an active role in other genres. On October 6, 2019, she held her own live concert ‘Dream!’
