Okay, ill start by being nice here, which is why this is a positive review. I saw this in the free-to-play horror section, and it looked promising, so I decided to try it out in a lets-play. In the course of the two episodes that i did off the bat, I got stuck, mostly because I didn't look for a slightly hidden key, the rest because it didn't tell me that I NEEDED a key. In that sense, the game itself (the environment, the ambiance) is decent. The gameplay, however, is a different story.
No instructions were given for controls, and, assuming becaue it was made on source engine or a half life 2 mod, I kept using E. Wrong.
The driving is all over the bloody place, the car will spin out while turning all the time, and is prone to getting stuck ALOT.
The game is RIDICULOUSLY dark. I turned up the brightness all the way to make for a better video, and its still dark as ♥♥♥♥.
The jumpscares were expected, as I knew it was a horror/suspense game, so I dealt with it. BUT. The monster flitting around just gets to be slightly confusing more than startling. I also am a giant wuss, so i jumped at first, props to that.
The enemies are unnerving to say the least, with Cry of Fear and Afraid of Monsters-like movements, and are ridiculously overpowered. The health also bugs out after getting ♥♥♥♥♥ slapped several times by the first enemy, just look at my second episode for that.
The sequence while enetering the hotel is also pretty iffy, to say the least. Things happened out of sequence.
And lastly, all the character models are the same, just different faces. Just to ask the dev personally, please try to make them a bit more diverse, for atmosphere and such.
Oh, and there are pain sounds from the characters in the hometown sequence frequently, and it's a tad annoying. And the lunch "quest". Tell new players where to go at least.
Thank you for your time, I look forward to what you will or will not choose to do with this game. I hope you will fix it.
