Yes, the Fatal Frame series is pretty freaking creepy. But now you take that spin-chilling terror with you — the games’ spin-off, Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir, is being released for the Nintendo 3Ds on Friday, April 13.

Survival horror game Spirit Camera takes the gameplay mechanics of Fatal Frame and projects them onto the surrounding environment using the 3Ds’s augmented reality system. Players assist a girl named Maya in breaking a curse cast on her by the cryptic Woman in Black. Included in the storyline is the use of a 16-page augmented reality book called the Diary of Faces… I think you know where this is going. Screenshots and gameplay videos after the cut, if you think you can handle it…
