The Otome game that started it all and the very first in the Hakuouki Franchise. The first of three in the series developed by Idea Factory first designed for the PlayStation 2 and then later ported to PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable, Nintendo DS, and Nintendo 3DS.
Being a game in the category of "Visual Novels", the player interaction within the game is very similar to that of "Choose your own adventure" books.
As such, progression through the game is controlled by making a series of choices. The types of choices presented, vary throughout the multiple branching plot-lines associated with each individual. The player is asked to choose what to say, where to go, who to trust; as the situation quickly grows more and more perilous.
Hakuouki is also a romance game. There are five main storylines, each focusing on one of the legendary Shinsengumi captains. Each storyline features a diverging set of situations, characters, and story information. For the player to get a complete understanding of the plot and events, they must play through all possible branches.
The protagonist is a young woman, originally dressed in clothes only males were to be seen wearing, whose default name is Chizuru Yukimura. Before the start of the prologue, the player has the option of customizing the first name from Chizuru to their choice. At the start of the story, she has left her childhood home of Edo for Kyoto in search of her father, Dr. Kodo Yukimura.
It is quickly discovered that something increasingly dangerous and supernatural is going on in the dark streets of Kyoto. Something that Chizuru's father may in fact know a great deal about.
After stumbling upon a bloody and dubious example of the Shinsengumi's "cruelty" Chizuru is then taken into custody by the elite police force as it just so happens that they are also looking for the missing Doctor Yukimura.
