An Anti-Coin Collection Platformer inspired by Japanese folktales.


Befriend an assortment of ghosts and ghouls in the world hidden in the dusk.

As the day shines the last of its golden light over the land an eerie realm begins to form in the shadows. This spectral world is home to the Yokai. An assortment of ghosts, ghouls and demons that rise in the dusk and play through the night.

When a young girl, Tamako, spots one of these yokai she finds herself trapped in their world. If she can navigate this perilous land, the key to returning home may lie on the strange new mountain on the horizon.



Every coin you collect has consequence!

Scattered throughout each level are blocks that react to the number of coins you have. Overcome these devious puzzles and you'll earn yourself a whole bunch of prizes! But collect too many coins and you'll find the ground giving out beneath you!

Along the way you’ll also encounter all sorts of yokai — some harmless, others not so much. Whether Tamako makes it home or not rests on your ability to tell friend from foe.

Explore the world of Rising Dusk over 20+ levels traveling through Rice Fields, Castle Towns, Hot Springs, and more.

Avoid the coins! A unique mechanic that will have you battling every instinct to get everything. There’s a multitude of collectables, but can you resist collecting them all?

16-bit meets Studio Ghibli art style. Encounter all sorts of ghosts and demons drawn from Japanese mythology.


A charming, vibrant adventure, jam-packed with cool characters!
