This game is like Myst, except the weather's worse and the protagonist moves more slowly. I loved Myst.
The puzzles are logical. The colors are psychotropic, i.e. most of the stuff is grey-ish, but important objects will be colored and bright. Don't expect to rush around, the protagonist has a leg injury and walks with a cane. If you explore your surroundings carefully, the puzzles are straightforward and require little back-and-forth. I'd say this is more a game of mystery, less one of horror.
One bug: move all of the spinners at least once, even if the combination is already correct, or the game will think it's not.

I know I set the language to English someplace before I started. The text is displayed in Irish and English, the audio is English.
