Don't worry, KURAYAMI Mode is nowhere near as hard as AKUMU, in fact, it is quite enjoyable to play and adds an interesting dynamic. This mode kills all the light in the levels as soon as you enter STEM and puts you in almost complete darkness with only your flashlight.

This mode can only be selected after clearing the game on Survival first and can be selected for both New Game and New Game +. To my knowledge, New Game + only carries over your collectibles, as there are no upgrades, and I'm not sure if you can still unlock the achievement in this mode. I played it safe and did a fresh New Game on KURAYAMI.

This mode is not very hard as long as you know your way through the levels and know the enemy routes. I had already played through twice: once as my first time, the second on New Game + to gather missed collectibles. The flashlight has a good area of lighting and it actually doesn't alert enemies so don't be afraid to keep it on.

The hardest part for me is when the Searchlight Creature hunts you while you wait for the elevator. However, it doesn't take long with trial and error and I noticed there is a particular route she takes. Also, the fight with Joseph can be made easier by using distracting electronics scattered around the area. I finished this mode with a clear time of an hour and 26 minutes. Just take your time and keep your wits about you!
