Menus and gameplay are in Japanese.

Yoshikazu Takeuchi (born February 27, 1955 in Wakayama Prefecture) is a Japanese writer of fan guides, novels, as well as a radio co-host. His work was the basis for the Satoshi Kon anime film Perfect Blue and the 2002 live-action adaptation.

Akazu no ma (aka Akazu no Aida) is a strange sound novel game, specially due to the lack of characters in the game since they never appear in the screen, that to advance between places the game uses a FMV sequence and that the game is really slow to advance in the story.

The gameplay is the classic in a sound novel game, in some parts of the game the player is asked to choose between different options that will take the story through different ways and that makes the game to feature different endings depending of those choices.

The story (written by Yoshikazu Takeuchi) is a futuristic one, taking place in a near future where the player's character arrives a a building tower in a helicopter and as soon as he arrives there strange things start to happening (he listen to girl screams, strange noises, etc.).
