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 scene.....fire 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.

Good game for the indie horror. Though you go here all the time and listen to the thoughts of the protagonist, sometimes very atmospheric moments from which the heart starts pounding like mad.
I want to see the next part of this game , but the developer perhaps changed his mind, because is no news.

This game should be much longer cos its not a free game so...
The idea of this game is cool but there is not much gameplay in it. You just walking and 2 times running looking for the right way, thats all.

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.

(JUST TO ADD-SINCE PRICE DROP)

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.

Dante's Inferno

Coma: Mortuary (Episode 1) is an indie adventure game from NAGA Entertainment Studios located within the Russian Federation that takes some of its cues from Dante's Divine Comedy. The game places you in the shoes of a depressed and suicidal man who mourning the loss of his girlfriend tries to take his own life at the very same place his lover died by dosing up on copious amount of alcohol and then careening his car off the edge of a cliff. Waking up in the realm of the dead the man begins his search for his lost love.

This first episode of a planned trilogy can at times be incredibly obtuse leaving most of its interpretation open to the gamer. tid-bits of information are slowly relayed through the main protagonist short but sparse soliloquies but more often that not they open up more questions than provide answers. The unconsciousness state the man finds himself in (the accident does not actually result in his death but in him entering into a coma) could either be viewed as a state of purgatory or "Purgatorio" by some as there is repeated reference and imagery to religious cleansing and purification or his own personal "Inferno" due to the nature of some of the more oppressive and grim environments and encounters along the way. I am hoping the other two planned releases will expand a bit more on this so that each theme is given more clarity.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=280198311
Coma: Mortuary is a very short gaming experience with minimal environmental interaction required from the gamer bar the pulling of a lever here and there. Most gamers should get through this episode in roughly an hour and I can't imagine the game appealing to that many gamers who have been brought up on action frag-fests as it's an incredibly slow and meditative piece that is more Dear Esther than Amnesia - The Dark Descent. This is a thinking persons game that should provoke all types of questions around its central themes and that is exactly what Coma: Mortuary does even though as it closes many of those questions remain unanswered - something I am hoping the other two titles are going to eventually tie-up.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=280071991
The game uses the Unreal Engine and can be strikingly beautiful and atmospheric at times and I found for the most part that the joy of the title lay in discovering its unique environments. Sounds are well implemented and not overbearing except for the occasional out of place rock tune that somehow breaks the immersion. One thing for sure is that Coma: Mortuary has piqued my interest and now I am definitely keen to see how this story of death and redemption is going to play its self out. Only time will tell!

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...
