The premise of Lampblack is this: You are a member of the Falling Feathers Paranormal Society, a cryptid/supernatural hunters club. You find yourself in a sticky predicament one day when you are ambushed and bitten by a werewolf. Soon, you discover a secret underground society of cryptids and other paranormal monsters. It is up to you to decide whether you will continue in your previous mission to expose these creatures to the human world, potentially exposing yourself, or turn to ally with your new paranormal brethren and protect them from outside forces.
The game features a constant overlay of static for not only aesthetic but to display what it is like to live with Visual Snow, something that the main character - Roan - lives with.
