Silver Chains is a first-person horror game with a strong emphasis on story and exploration. Search for clues within an old abandoned manor to unravel the truth about the terrible events which have happened here.

While trying to find a way out of the house, Peter has to uncover the dark secrets of what has happened in this place. As he tries to find his way out, Peter discovers hints which indicate that he has already been here before. But by the time he’s starting to put the pieces of the puzzle together, something evil has picked up his trail…

Here’s the latest Dev Diary video for Ninjala, which details what’s planned for the game in 2021 (which includes long-awaited features such as “Clans,” and “Multiplayer Lobbies with Avatars,”):

Our delightful dev diary hosts Morishita-san and Kaneda-san are back with the first details on what you can expect from Ninjala in 2021! Season 4 has just gotten underway, so if you were hoping for news about this season’s collaborations, we’ve got you covered. Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is coming back in a big way, and we’ve got a special GungHo collab skating your way soon, too! But Season 4 collaboration updates aren’t all that our hosts have to discuss. No, we’ve gone and put out a roadmap of what you can look forward to over the next few seasons, too! Season 5 will introduce new weapons, new collabs, a new Featured Battle, and we’re going to be adding in a more in-depth tutorial system, too. The good times keep rolling in Season 6, where we’ll celebrate Ninjala’s one-year anniversary with some special things, along with a new stage, new weapon, and a new collab. Of course, we can’t forget to mention the S-Blast Battle Test Play! Featured Battle will be added this month, but you’ll have to watch to get all the details on what that means.

Here’s some details about the collaborations:

After the much-loved Kyary Pamyu Pamyu “Ninja Re Bang Bang Steve Aoki Remix” collab, Ninjala’s popstar collab returns with new in-game music and a commemorative T-shirt! Items from the first collaboration will be available from the in-game shop. 

Uncle Death rides into Ninjala as a part of the game’s first LET IT DIE collaboration. Your favorite skeletal skateboarder brings a whole lot of goodies like headgear, Ninja-Gum for the Matsuri Board, and an IPPON decoration. All players who play during the collaboration will receive a LET IT DIE sticker as a log-in bon

And here’s details about the Featured Battle mode:

S-Blast Battle Test Play! is a limited-time Featured Battle that replaces S-Bursts with a new mechanic, “S-Blasts.” S-Blasts are similar to S-Bursts, but instead of parrying when attacked, they will push attackers away to interrupt the pace of the fight. The basic rules are the same as the Battle Royale – grab the most points, you win! Battle rewards for this Featured Battle include the new “Xenon Headphones” headgear, as well as Assist Codes and Ninja-Gum. This new Featured Battle will also be a Test Play, so players can share any feedback they have via social media to influence future combat systems.

One last thing: The “Loot Battle Matsuri” event is also coming later in Season 4. 

Finally, here’s what’s in store for Season 5 and Season 6:

Season 5

  • New Gum Weapon
  • New Shinobi Cards
  • New Featured Battle
  • New collaboration
  • An online tournament mode
  • A tutorial mode where players can learn the rules of Ninjala and earn rewards

Season 6

  • New stage
  • New Shinobi Cards
  • New collaboration
