Laplace no Ma (ラプラスの魔 Rapurasu no Ma, literally "Laplace's Demon") is a Japanese video game released in 1987 for the NEC PC-8801. The game was also ported to the NEC PC-9801, MSX, Sharp X68000, Super Famicom, and PC Engine CD.

This video game is a mixture of the role-playing and survival horror genres and set in the vicinity of Boston, Massachusetts, in a town called "Newcam"; it is modeled on fictional city Arkham created by H. P. Lovecraft.

The horror part of the game lies in the exploration of the fictional Weathertop Mansion, whose owner dabbled in black magic. The game's RPG features include its character classesDilettante, Medium, Detective, Scientist, and Journalist—and that the player can leave the mansion to walk around the town to go to shops to buy items needed to defeat the monsters and complete the game.
