Death Crimson (デスクリムゾン) is Sega Saturn light gun game developed and published by Ecole. Released exclusively in Japan in August 1996, it is infamous for its notoriously-low production quality, and is frequently cited as one of the single-worst titles for the Saturn. However, its camp presentation and overall strangeness also established a cult fanbase which still exists today, and has since become celebrated for its endearing so bad it's good" appeal.

10 years ago, when protagonist Combat Echizen was still enlisted the Marumara Army, he and his two buddies Danny and Greg discovered some ancient ruins. Inside they found jewels, ancient books, and a gun called Crimson. The three friends grabbed everything they could and escaped back to their homelands. They never met each other again.
1996 — present day: The KOT syndrome has infected all of Europe. Combat Echizen has become a doctor. He found himself dragged by fate into the town of Saronika where all the citizens have become monsters. Without realizing, he started using the Crimson against them and found it quite effective in dealing damage. The Crimson could also upgrade itself in the midst of battle too. Realizing this gun is connected to the KOT syndrome and the appearance of the monsters, Combat Echizen goes to Limburg University, Coneraato Bridge, Izgit River, and finally to Asshimu Mansion to fight the monsters and reach out to the truth.
The game was universally panned for its terrible graphics, frustrating hit detection, disorienting camera, and a feedback-less calibration screen unable to inform players where shots are fired.
