Another one of those games where I have got no idea how it managed to get onto my steam, but I thought why not give it a go to see if the game is worth its £1.99 price tag. Anyway, it is time for a review.
You play as a man who has just woken up in a strange house and has no idea how he got there. He only has one aim and that is to get back to his house and try and find out what the hell happened to him. However, on his journey he comes across many different things that make him wonder about his life and what some people of the town have been doing behind his back.
This is a horror game and at first, I was a bit hesitant to carry on playing as I don’t do good with horror, but I kept going. The story is good enough to keep you occupied the whole time playing but it is not something you would want to play again unless you want to get all the different achievements. Once you have beaten the game I don’t think you are going to get much more from the game especially if you did a bit of looking around while playing the game. The story is also very predictable from the start, if you can’t tell what is going to happen from the start then you need to play some more games.
The graphic style is dated but I still like the way it looks. It is not like every horror game out there which is great as it has its own style and makes it one of a kind. Of course, some of the clues that are on the floor are quite hard to make out and if it wasn’t for the text boxes then I would have a very hard time in trying to figure out what the object is.
The music is what makes this game a horror game, every step you hear, every door opening you hear but you won’t hear much else other than the wind. While playing you will want to keep going but also at the same time you will want to stop as you don’t want to know what happens next as the noises will get to you.
The down side to the game is that you can’t really call it a horror game if nothing scary happens, this is a bit like Firewatch where the whole game is just a massive suspenseful time but at the end you don’t really get anything to scare you to fulfil the suspense. You basically get to make your own ending and depending on what you say at the end will determine the character opinion of what happened even if it is obvious what did happen.
The game is only an hour long but for what it is I do think it is worth the £1.99 and I would even go as far as say that it is a game that every steam library should have. It is short, good story and okay graphics which makes you play the whole game at once.
