Ok went into this game with lots of hope that it would be a very atmospheric horror game and to some degree it is,but and its a "BIG BUT" this game is very short as a matter of fact PAINFULLY SO.Now let me say this that the game does do a good job with atmosphere and i can see where the developers are going to take the story and it looks like it will be really good but only when all three acts are out and can be played one after the other as my total play time will tell you,1.5 hours is neither here nor there and is very short even for a seperate episode.
Now i get to the pricing and at £7.99 its way overpriced for the ammount of game (more like an interactive story to be honest) that you will get,so therefore at the moment is overpriced (in my opinion-no replay value as once you have seen it all thats it).
Ok lets gets to the brass tacs so to speak,the graphics are nice and look really good (your torch offering the only source of light down in the caves and cattacombs that the game is set in),the gameplay is very slow and methodic and to be honest i think i spent upwards of between 20-30 minutes walking places (the game has a very slow walk function,whether intended or not it actually bumps up the playtime).I wont spoil it to much for those that are going to play but there are some nerve changling scenes and these are of the chase variety (no guns or weapons-so it does share that in common with AMNESIA but little all else).There is no true freedom in game and at times you just feel like you are along for the ride.The sound in game is top notch with some of the noises actually getting to you (screams and other noises are all quite nerve shredding at times).
Interaction in world is quite simple and only occurs to advance the story and at times you will wonder where to go but a little trial and error soon sorts this out in time.
So on the one hand i would like to reccommend it but with hand on heart cant as whats there is good but really doesnt warrant such a high price tag for what is actually a shorter experience than most movies,sad as like i have said i can see where they want to go its just whether enough people will buy such a short game to help them get the following episodes out so that we can finish the story and see what actually does and is going on.


The game has since dropped to nearly half price so it is now better value for money (but all the above still applies).
This is not a very good sign though as people have paid the higher asking price and it hasent even been out for more than 8 days (not a very good sign of either the product or the developers faith in it)
Lets hope that this doesent become the norm as to be honest this reveiwer will just wait for his games instead of forking out money for a game to just drop less than 9 days later.
(all games drop eventually but not this quickly and lets just hope that the next episodes remain free for the people who bought this game early and that it remains so for everyone else as well)

I don't want to spam links or anything, but I think this video I made will do a good job of showing why I do not recommend this game and why I was furious that I purchased it.

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.

This game reminds me of a place i remember as a child called Fun Zone. An overpriced indoor playground Where any possible fun was ruined by the angry teenage attendants constantly yelling "NO RUNNING!!!!". The movement speed is painfully slow. Add a run function, and the beautifull graphics would be worth experiencing. but until then i can't come close to recomending.

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.

I paid about 50 cents for this game but honestly this is a game that should be offered for free. Seemed like they were going for more of an experimental narrative type game than an actual horror-type game. You spend the majority of the game walking very slowly through tunnels without a real purpose except to flip the occasional lever or two. The one action scene they give you comes out of nowhere and it is extremely lack-luster.

One thing I actually did like about the game was the story and I would definitely read a book about this game. Only problem is that it would be better than the actual game was...

Coma earns from me a 1/5. Please do not spend your hard-earned six dollars on this game...

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!

Short Version:

+Nice visuals
+Interesting concept
+Decent voice acting

-Horrible walking speed
-Not tense nor scary
-Boring Puzzles
-Nothing makes any real sense
-Ending is disappointing

"Long" Version:

Ah, "Coma Mortuary"... A game about death! Sounds interesting.

Ok so, I got this game for 50 cents or something and I really wanted to like it...
Unfortunately, this game is, as many people pointed out before me, a walking simulator. Yes, there is some very basic fun to be had but, in the end, this game managed to bore me to... DEATH (heh)!

Anyways, you play as a nameless guy who lost his girlfriend. He decides to commit suicide, but finds himself trapped in a bizarre world. Sounds interesting, right? Unfortunately, nothing really delivers. Everything starts off intriguing, but after a couple of areas, you realize what you are in for - a snooze-fest. The game doesn't really have an ending because it was meant to be a trilogy, so you're pretty much playing a third of a game.

Gameplay is trash. You can walk slowly or walk... Slower... I am serious. I pressed shift to run and the character walked even slower - the fastest walking speed is painfully tedious and, considering the game has a few parts where you need to backtrack, this was even more annoying. I get it, walking CAN build tension but in this case... Frustration ensued.
You can also interact with levers but it's all really easy and dumb. The "puzzles" require a certain lever sequence to be solved but you can't even press the wrong lever or anything, you just need to find the one that can be pulled and you're done.
There's a part towards the end that allows you to run - it comes out of nowhere and the soundtrack turns into a heavy metal cacophony that left me "WTF".

Voice acting is serviceable but the guy goes on and on about some nonsense about "the place" he is in. I mean, I'm all for a deep understanding of death and hidden meanings but this bordered on ridiculous. Also, there are a lot of parts where the character is quiet and the only thing you can hear is your footsteps - yet again, not scary , boring.

"Coma: Mortuary" looks really good. Even though the flashlight effect only works close to the character, the game world had an "Amnesia: The Dark Descent" feel to it and everything looked better than expected.

So yeah, a cheap, hour long game with pretty graphics, where nothing else works.

Do I recommend it? No. I'm sort of easily scared by games and I didn't even flinch once with this one.

Final Score: 3 out of 10.

The game is still not worth the money they lowered it to, the only good thing about this was the voice actor. You move so SLOW during the entire game but one part and yet the game still was VERY SHORT. I honestly would not recommend this game to anyone. I was highly disappointed.

Save yourself some money and buy another game.

This game was alright despite not being all that scary it had slight horror element but besides that the whole horror aspect was a little dull but as for graphics and and the overall setting in wich the game took place was i guess you could say i sorta enjoyed it but it lacked certain aspects well atleast for me it did.

This is an odd game at first look. It doesn't appear to have any direct action (i.e. fighting and interaction is minimal), it doesn't really have puzzzles in the traditional sense... But what it does have is a Gothic chic like me's dream atmosphere! Creepy stone worked and long dark hallways, strange scurrying in the blackened corners, dripping moss, ancient angel statues, even giant centipedes!!!!! What girl could ask for more? And, best of all, one has a chance to basically explore The Land of the Dead. Very cool!! Throw in an excellent, mostly Ambient soundtrack (one Black Metal sounding song does play too at one point but other than that, all Ambient), and Viola! You have a very dark and almost fable like tale. I say 'fabel' as it has a moral message, not an annoying one, but one which makes one think of ones life. It does have an issue with ending too soon and I think this is because it was intended to be a two part game. I do not know if the devlopers are working on Part 2, but I truly hope they are. It is a graveyard rich, dark, and spooky explorer horror game is how I would assign a genre to this game. To top it off, it has a cool tale which the main character (you) tells as you walk through this dark world, which I greatly enjoyed. Definitely worth a look for horror fans like me~ 8.5/10
For basic game play, graphics, and storyline. To be honest, I love this game but I am frustrated it does not appear to have it's part 2 yet. It is a bit like only reading half a good novel. So 8.5, not 10.

Land of the dead is sooo beautifully haunting!

This little game is only 1/3 of the trilogy which we still have no idea when the other two piece will come out. As of right now, this game is only about one hour long with some amazing graphics and sound effect.

The voice acting was done reasonably well except it doesn't really make much differece at all. Story for this game is really at the very minimum. There are some puzzle but instead of good puzzle they are actually really annoy and boring. The only real horror for this game is some pop out horror or small chase scene. (except enenmy don't move. You just see blinking shadow get closer and closer).

The biggest problem for this game is you cannot run at all. There is walking and walking slowly(+shift). Which give you more time to enjoy the scene but really slow down everything.

The ending is really a let down since it's really scream for the next game to be released.

So sum it out.. Visual Eyecandy that have serious gameplay flaws.

5/10.. I never recommend nor disapprove this game. May be try it and figure out what you think. It doesn't take long at all anyways.

The game has a decent story but the game is missing some key principles to a horror game.

The graphics and voice acting were fine, but they threw in two mazes that were mindnumbingly boring an aggrivating to navigate.

The game takes control of your character waaaaaay to much, ruining a lot of potential fear someone can get.

Lastly, someone thought they should jam some metal music during the chase that guy.
There is nothing wrong with metal.....I just don't need to be listening to it while running away from a demon trying to kill me.

This game is a good stocking stuffer on a super sale, that is about it.

For all of the things wrong with this game (the walk speed is ridiculously slow, the flashbacks are silly, the puzzles are boring and get in the way), I still think about how interesting the spaces in the game are. Cavernous atriums, abandoned but still torchlit temples, stone passages that feel both decrepit and powerful; it's a serious and successful attempt at designing a place for primeval gods, or maybe the remnants of the first great age of their progeny. The game is definitely a walking sim, and a creepy one, but it's one of those few that feels like it's doing anything right.

I'd give it a 2/2. In a genre that is still trying to figure out what it means when bare visuals are the only real important thing in the game, Coma actually already figured that part out.

If you really want a walking simulator, just save yourself some time and buy Dear Esther or The Vanishing of Ethan Carter or something.

I'm not sure what the goal of this game was, since the storytelling was strange. The main character has a lot of knowledge that doesn't really make sense for him to have, and it comes out of nowhere when he initially starts to talk about it. Other than that, here's a quick summary of the good and bad:
(Maybe spoilers? I don't know.)

Good Things
  • I guess the music's okay, if a bit generic.
  • Those horizontal spike gates are pretty cool.
  • The first chase scene is hilarious.

Bad Things
  • If there was a way to turn off the motion blur that happens while you walk, I couldn't see it. So, if you get motion sick, I would doubly suggest you avoid this game.
  • The walking speed can be best described as "about the same as a geriatric snail," which is obviously an issue for a game where all you ever really do is walk. (Sometimes pressing shift makes you slow down even further, if you're into that.)
  • There's no reason to go anywhere other than forward. There's no lore to find, no jump scares to see, no interesting sights to take in... nothing.
  • The game tells you that "light guides the way" and it does! ... except when it doesn't! Hope you like climbing up flights of stairs or walking down paths that don't actually lead anywhere only to realize you have to double back again, because you will. And that's always fun when you go the pace of a speeding baby, isn't it?
  • At times, you have to hammer down on the action key to get something to work. (In one room, no matter how hard I tried, I was unable to get the game to let me read some books, despite having a prompt to do it.)
  • The puzzles are boring and make you backtrack a lot. Sometimes the game doesn't make it clear that you've even done anything useful until the final part of a lever-pulling marathon.
  • After a bit of heavy-handed foreshadowing by Mr. Narrator, there's a chase sequence where you can actually die. This is out of nowhere because, earlier in the game, you go through a sequence where you can just slowly walk away from some menacing cardboard cutouts while comically energetic music plays in the background.

After being attacked by a ghost and looking at the game over screen, I realized that I had no desire to try again. While the concepts that the narrator explored were interesting, the execution is very poor, so I never felt all that invested in any of it. It's a shame, really. I wanted to know who the plague doctor dude on the loading screen was.

I think I got this on sale, but I regret having spent money on it at all. Don't waste yours.
