I get so much joy out of this game even when not playing it. Because it's a game with a lot of deep meaning there's much to discuss about it with others and exchange theories. As far as gameplay goes it's pretty limited in what you can actually do yet somehow the game manages to deliver a story that is captivating and with just the right amount of scare. The mood in the game is incredibly spot on and eerie and the tension builds up as you progress through the house.
The game exploits the fear of being home alone and monsters under the bed. In this case there really is monsters in the house, or guests as they are referred to in the game. They want to find you and you have to play hide and seek with them in order not to get caught. Doors will slam behind your back, the guests will start calling out to you and before you know it they're right next to you.
Under the right circumstances Knock-knock doesn't take very long to beat however there's a lot of replay value due to multiple endings and achievements. You can get game over in the game too so there's no guarantee that you'll even complete it your first time around. It can be a challenge, especially if you don't follow the game's advise that the game is played with you and not against you.
If you enjoy games with deep meaning and don't mind a creepy atmosphere with the occasional jump scare then I really think you'll like playing Knock-knock. I recommend checking out other games from Ice-Pick Lodge too if you get hooked.
