If you want to hear a bored, off-brand Ron Swanson narrate generic dialogue about the afterlife, over VIDEO GAMES SLOWEST WALK CYCLE, then definitely check out Coma:Mortuary. If you're looking for a game where literally anything happens, maybe look elsewhere.

Oh, and if you do decide to check it out, stick around for the most comedically misplaced death metal music, while you walk slower than someone can crawl.

Worth the $1 I payed for it. It is a bit short and thats saying something because I don't rush. I take time to look at every crany and it could use more scare. The story is amusing enough but needs more atmosphere and better graphics. I would not recommend this for more than $5 though. It is about $0-$5 worth so about $2.50. There are other free games simular to this that offer more such as SCP Containment Breach.

It's evident that a couple of people inspired by the Penumbra series wanted to take a shot at making a slow paced mystical exploration horror game with focus on eery atmosphere rather than combat and jump scares. With this first part, which is supposed to act like an intro of sorts, they brought me from sceptical (I bought it on a sale so I paid almost nothing at all - so I didn't expect anything really), to underwhelmed, to a bit intrigued, back down to underwhelmed and landed on sceptical.

If they put in more effort on the coming episodes, especially when it comes to character models and the AI, then I think it will be at least worth a purchase. As this episode stands, I would not recommend it to the general public - but I _would_ recommend it to horror lovers and people with a genuine interest of games of this type. The atmosphere is absolutely nailed at some parts, while it's completely ruined at others.

If I were to give it one of those oneliner judgements, I'd say "barely passable". If it's on sale again then yes, pick it up. You might enjoy it!

So a man walks into a catacomb.
slowly, really, but just enough to make you want to run the ♥♥♥♥ outta there so you don't have to hear all the ♥♥♥♥ed up ♥♥♥♥ coming from everywhere you dont want noises to come from.
No place that actually SHOULD contain a jumpscare does so, and the spooky ♥♥♥♥ that COMES outta nowhere wont leave you alone: when you get to do something when your nerves are completely wrecked from all the odd noises, you will panic.
and do it all wrong.
and you will die.
horribly.
then trial and error.

god damn i hate this game so much i love it!
my ♥♥♥♥ed up nerves were definetely worth the 4.99€ i paid.
The sad story is truly sad, and if i woulnt leave computer once in a while to regular bathroom visits, i would most likely cry to the story alone.

i loved it.

The game is alright, a bit short in my opinion and quite a lot of movie watching, slow walking speed but quite enjoyable. if the other two parts come out maybe play them all in one go as you're looking at about an hour ish of gamplay for this.

not bad, not brilliant.

6-7/10

Yes walking simulators are boring... but hey you get what you pay for. This game is great for the PRICE. Only paid 0.50$ for it and was worth every penny IF you are a WALKING SIM FAN. Now don't expect Prenumbra or Amnesia. This game is short 1.5 hours for 50 cents.

Pros:
Game is nice for the eyes.
Music is relaxing.
Actor telling a story.
There is a lady ghost/monster chasing you at one point.
I had at least 3 jump scares.
Price.

Cons:
A few unexplained deaths.
Plot boring.
Walking is slow like most walking sims.
Game is short.
Ending to be continued kind of thing...

If you like walking sim games I recommend buying this game on sale.

There isnt much to say about this game other than its just plain dull. It gives you no reason why or direction to what your supposed to be doing. Which basically consists of walking around aimlessly down corridor after corridor pulling the odd lever every now and then. The monotone mutterings of the narrator about angels and demons doesnt help matters either making you care even less about the supposed story. Also there are no puzzle elements here, you are simply trying to find the exit to the cut-and-paste surroundings. The movement speed also has to be mentioned as your character moves so damn slow. Which I can only think was purposely put in to extend what is already a short experience.

The only redeeming qualities are the graphics and sound design, which aren't too bad at all. Although the death-metal style choice for the one short chase scene seems SO out of place.

Overall very disappointing and I can't recommend this no matter the price. Hopefully the other episodes are more entertaining.

Very atmospheric. Good music. Interesting story. Well thought out concepts. Mysterious. Good pace.

Some moments are just amazing.

Some films are short. Some films are long. Some games are short. Some games are long.
I'm trying to say that you cannot judge all things by the same standards or you'll always get the same thing.

It is approximately 1.5 hours of an immersive, entertaining experience.

I am very curious about how the games will proceed.

You shuffle slowly through the underworld while Garfield prattles on about memory, and sometimes you die (?) for some reason. Worth all fifty pennies I didn't actually pay for it.

During my very brief time in The Land Of The Dead, I learned the following:

- The Land Of The Dead is a hauntingly beautiful place, lovingly realised with (mostly) top-notch graphics. It has nice sound, also.

- One can never walk any faster than a speed slightly above GLACIAL in The Land Of The Dead, except perhaps when being "chased" by things popping up (but not necessarily moving towards you) in corridors and doorways. Water provides an even greater obstacle to one's movement, thereby proving the old adage that "blood is thicker than water" COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY INCORRECT (mind you, I didn't get to walk through any blood in the course of the game, so perhaps I'm just jumping to conclusions). For those who can't handle the break-neck pace, however, there is fortunately the option to press Left Shift and slow yourself down even FURTHER.

- There are lots of dead-ends in The Land Of The Dead. Which take ♥♥♥♥ING AGES to back-track from, for reasons listed directly above.

- Every visitor to The Land Of The Dead is helpfully supplied with a FLASHLIGHT (it is pretty dark, after all).

- There are lots of levers and cranks in The Land Of The Dead, used to open doors and so forth. These levers won't necessarily be close to each other OR the portal one is using them to traverse through. In other words, bring a packed lunch if you plan on trying to get through any doors in The Land Of The Dead.

- The Land Of The Dead comes complete with mediocrely-acted narration, in some desperate attempt to recreate the atmosphere of Dear Esther, only in a far less linear environment with far less clues as to where exactly you're supposed to go next. Again, a packed lunch (and, perhaps, dinner) is advised; you may also wish to borrow a saint's halo to make the journey slightly less agonizing on the whole.

- There are a lot of "first-person" cut scenes in The Land Of The Dead, all of which are directed by a very nervous person with a twitchy mouse hand who can't pan around smoothly.

- There is death metal music in The Land Of The Dead, but only at highly inappropriate times, such as when one is being chased down corridors by witchy ghost women who look like cardboard cut-outs. Or witnessing end credit sequences which are as unskippable as the game is now unleavable, except by way of forcefully shutting one's computer down.

- Lastly but not leastly, The Land Of The Dead apparently comes in three parts. Here's hoping the next two are at least slightly better, and FREE to all of us who who were kind enough to give the developers money for THIS barely passable excuse for a "game". ONLY RECOMMENDED WHEN DIRT-CHEAP IN A SALE, AND ONLY FOR THOSE OF US SO ADDICTED TO HORROR GAMES THAT WE'LL PLAY JUST ABOUT ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING.

Verdict: 6/10.

Paid $0.50 for the game, it's not worth much more than that. The majority of the game you spend walking very very slowly through empty tunnels just to pull random levers to past on to the next area. I really like the narrative and would like to see this game turned into a novel, but it would probably be better than the actual game is. Alot of potential if they would add in alittle more object interation and utility to the game.

3/10
Seriously, this game could be so great if they focused more on gameplay.

This game is a work of art. I enjoyed it plenty and can't wait to see more. if you are into horror games that are ambient and have a very well placed soundtrack this is for you. If you are not a very patient person and you play games for fast action this game is not for you, and to help you get a better idea of what this game feels like it feels related to Anna the indie horror game. except there arent many puzzles in Coma.

So this game basically put me into a coma. Key factors in this are: screen tearing, a cut missing out of the sky box, music that loops poorly, and having to walk at the pace of a newborn sloth. The story also had me for a loss. It jumped all over the place and had no real structure or purpose. On the bright side. It gave me great confidence in the game I am currently developing. Hopefully you will see it on steam soon!

It might be a slow game, short or whatever, but the content is good. I like the story and the graphics are ok. Some scare jumps here and there. It was worth buying it.

Best Lever Simulator I played so far. Really enjoyed the landscape and the Effort they put into the Paper cut-out Ghosts. Its worth a 10/10.
Totally worth my time and i would recommend it to everyone that enjoys a Good Lever Simulator.
Definately worth my 0.60 Cents.

For me, one of the best Adventure/Horror game I have played in a long time. For those who haven't played it yet, trust me, it's worth every penny.

This game was worth the $0.49 I paid for it, it is not worth any more than that. I did enjoy the game but it has a lot of loss ends, you will have to play the other games they make to understand what is going on.
