No and no. ;)
Another hint - the franchise it belongs to is a classic RPG. The game in question was released for Commodore VIC-20 only. Oh, and it has something to do with escaping and mountains in its title.

Yes, and I guess it can count as an answer, since I believe it's way too much of an obscure game to guess and I don't want to prolong it any longer. :D It's Ultima: Escape from Mt. Drash, released in 1983.
Your turn Mandle!

"Garfield obviously" sounds like what Bill Murray's last words in Zombieland should have been.

I wonder what Bill Murray was paid for the cameo? Probably something comparable to what Bob Harris was paid to begrudgingly appear in a Japanese whiskey ad?  (laugh)

But I was just joking in the meanwhile you submit your game, Mandle!

I get the joke but I hope you aren't suggesting Zombieland was something Bill Murray would have had to be paid massively to appear in. It's a classic!

I enjoyed it too, but I found Bill Murray's appearance in it to feel quite forced.

I don't know if you're familiar with this kind of games, but this is a classic so let's give a try:

I can safely say I've never played this or seen pictures from it before. But the axe does make me think a bit of Tokyo Ghoul.

I found the game easily given the info in the first picture and saw the second picture on the page I found. I find it interesting that the game was written by the same person who wrote Puella Magi Madoka Magica.

It's Saya no uta (english title: Song of Saya), a perfect example of denpa horror!

The one who gives a definition of denpa can take the turn!

If "denpa" is "電波" in Japanese then it means "transmission" or "reception" with regards to sending or receiving a wireless transmission.

Well, for what I understood is indeed "reception" of a twisted reality or sort of...

Up to you, Mandle!

While we are waiting for a new entry, let's admire this piece of artwork (and yes, it's from a game - you may guess it :) )

I have no idea about what game it is, but that looks amazing!

Maybe it could be magic/witch related, because of the cauldron, (flying?) broom, bats and ominous castle?
