“The sound is amazingly well polished, and features tons of scary and crispy sound-effects. You will be hard-pressed to say that this is an indie game due to it, as it looks like they have gone the extra mile with the sound effects and the eerie music.”
Push-Start

“Claire absolutely succeeds in providing an atmospheric unsettling experience, a compelling story, and fantastic sound design and soundtrack, that all work in tandem to make this a must-play for survival horror fans.”
Indie Game Enthusiast

“If you’re looking for something scary, Claire is terrifying, atmospheric — thanks, in part, to a stellar soundtrack — and a fantastic love letter to the survival horror genre.”

About This Game

To hear my full thoughts on Claire, listen to my review on Game Hoard Podcast

Claire is a sidescrolling survival horror game with 16-bit-esque graphics. The horror is of the psychological variety, with you questioning what is real throughout the game. The game controls like a typical sidescroller but gameplay is firmly rooted in classic survival horror games. You have to explore, find items, solve puzzles, and avoid being killed by enemies, all while uncovering the story of the game. Along the way there are also a number of other characters to meet who present side quests and choices for you to make. Your choices, including whether or not to complete these missions, determines what kind of ending you get, of which there are many.

Overall, we found the game very enjoyable in a twisted way. The game relies on building a constant sense of tension, rather than jump scares, in order to frighten players. You have no way to defend against enemies, items you need to survive are scarce, and you can only save in certain rooms which are spread out across large areas. While all of this makes the game very intense to play, it can also potentially lead to frustration since dying means a significant loss of progress.

What's more frustrating though is trying to navigate sprawling 3D environments while moving in a 2D plane. Every time you enter a new room it's not clear if you are moving north, south, east, or west. Luckily, there is a map to help with this, but it's terribly inconsistent and lacking in detail. As a result, a lot of the game is spent feeling lost, which may be a good or bad thing for a survival horror game, depending on how you look at it.

If you can get past these frustrations, Claire is a great survival horror game that I think fans of the genre will really enjoy.

Claire is such a wonderfully driven horror experience. I'm finding myself scared and shocked, and emotionally invested in the story. If you want to see whether you agree with my assessment, or whether Hailstorm's adventure is for you, I welcome you to check out my Let's Play:

Who this game is meant for:
Fans of Lone Survivor, Clock Tower, Haunting Ground and Silent Hill or survival horror in general.

What bothered me: This game is too similar to Silent Hill and Lone Survivor.

There are tons of references to Silent Hill. I understand being influenced by a game, but it really goes far.
Even the menu sounds like the menu in Silent Hill 2.

Who this game is not for:

I'm not saying this is a good game or that it's not creepy, what I'm saying is that if you get annoyed by many references to other games, you will not enjoy this game. If you did not like the map layout in Silent Hill, you will not like this game.

People who hate running away from enemies instead of attacking them.
Also, be warned that this game is extremely similar to Lone Survivor.

Although it may sound like I'm bashing the game, I do enjoy the game and I do recommend it.
