Despite of not a very successful projects by studio Ice-Pick Lodge, the game "Knock-knock" shew up very good. The main point of the game - survival. But that point isn't fascinating, as the means to achieve it.
The story tells us about the Lodger - a withdrawn person, recluse, who lives in the forest. There is only the forest, surrounding the house, but it isn't so creepy as the residence of the protagonist. Strange things happen here: things get lost, heard extraneous steps, someone knocking at the door...
Gameplay is limited in inclusion of lightbulbs in rooms, playing with somedoby invisible "Hide-and-seek" from an unknown entity, and solving the riddles. As for indie-horror it's amazing.
Scary sounds sometimes are forced to stop and think what to do next, which cannot be unenjoyable. The clock ticks, floor squeaks, you hear strange quite voice - all this creates its own atmosphere.
In total, this game isn't so bad, as many people think. I really enjoy it, when I played. My first and last advice for this game is to listen to the advice of the developers: all you need for playing is solitude and dark, qiute place.
