So, I have to preface this game by pointing out that I was given this game for free by one of the only marketers that isn't an idiot in the industry, who handed keys for the game out free of charge to drum up press for the price drop and the free update.
Ignoring that, the game isn't actually bad, but it IS something you've probably played before; this game is a slightly more involved version of Slender.
If you weren't scared by Slender, or games like Slender, you won't be scared by this.
This is half of why my review may or may not be something you should listen to, because quite frankly this sort of thing is fairly distant from what I consider my affair.
You're chased by numerous ghosts and the HatMan, all of whom look like the bad guy from Ferngully. Also, you can find the credits to the game in a room, killing most of the atmosphere that's set by the idea that the game is based on a true story.
Aside from that, the environments are very enclosed, dark asylum settings, so it raises the question of whether you'd get this for cheap, Slender for cheaper, or Amnesia/Outlast for a bit more than this.
I do have to say if nothing else the game is actually reasonably priced when it's on sale for 20 cents, although five bucks may be a bit much.
I'm actually a bit torn, because I don't actually see this doing too well outside of 20 cents to a buck territory, because the entire presentation is fairly amateur and ends up being something I'd compare to free unity games, but damn that marketer was nice.
Can't say I can recommend this past a sale, because the actual content just isn't the sort of thing you'd usually see charged for.
Also, for the half a person that cares, I think I bugged achievements so... There's that?
