I don’t want to be here anymore

This game doesn’t boast the best graphics, but what it does have is atmosphere in spades.

When played it’s best to experience it like the good old horror games of the past, such as Dead Space and Resident Evil, in the dark, quit and taking in every sound the game has to offer.

I won’t lie when I say this game had me actually looking over my shoulder to see if anything was behind me. The sound design is to be commended, along with great level design meant to give you an almost claustrophobic feeling.

The only problem that I personally had was that this game felt very short, and I was left feeling like i wanted so much more.

With that said for anyone who doesn’t want to have to sink 40 hours into a game to get a pay off this is a great adventure.

There are however 3 different endings that I won’t spoil for you, but it does give the game a good amount of replayability.

This game is a true gem, in a day when the AAA industry has moved away from the horror genre, something like this comes along giving us everything we loved in those old titles and gives it a new story to explore.

Final Verdict – Recommend the experience highly
