About This Game

Wooden Floor is a first person adventure horror game inside an old house that seems normal but the further you progress into the game you start to realize that rooms change if you close a door behind you and whole corridors appear out of nowhere. Not being able to predict what is going to happen next or where you are heading for you need to make your way through the increasingly maze-like becoming house to find a way out of this bad dream that you just woke up into. The only thing that goes with you is the wooden floor underneath your feet.

Gameplay Features:
  • Level Streaming -> changing, appearing/disappearing, rotating rooms, corridors and objects
  • Unreal Engine 3 graphics (UDK)

6/10

genre: horror/mystery point and click adventure game in 1st person

+ creepy atmosphere, good use of the unreal engine, especially in the last parts of the game
+ point and click adventure game where most of the time you will be searching for keys that unlock doors in order to progress - puzzles are scarce, there is 1 inventory based and 1 based on your observation - there is also a platforming section and a jump and run one
+ controls are responsive, no problems there

- no story, you are left in a room and start unlocking doors, with no real purpose
- short 2 hours is the max since you won't get stuck somewhere for a long time
- no save system, you just have the option to select floor in the beginning (something like a chapter)


i don't really know whether to recommend it or not, initially i thought it was a cheap indie horror game that is too pricey for its quality, but as you move on the game it gets better, reminded me a bit of doorways (i also disliked the beginning there but later on the game was much better), so i will recommend it to those who want to spent an hour or two playing a creepy little game.

*hint: don't forget to close the doors behind you !

Pros:
- Graphics are not bad
- Sounds create an eerie atmosphere

Cons:
- No options menu. Made myself sick due to a lack of mouse sensitivity options/motion blur options.
- Too many spelling/grammar errors to count
- Not scary
- Developer uses the same prop/model over, and over, and over again
- Buggy
- Left Ctrl to jump (seriously, when has Jump ever been bound to control?)
- Cannot look all the way down

No, just no.

The more horror games you play, the harder it gets to review them. You're never quite sure whether you're bored because you've suffered the same jump scares, the same scenarios, the same possessed furniture flying around the room a hundred times before or because the game is genuinely dull, directionless and uninspired.

It's a little bit of both for Wooden Floor, although I'd have to say right from the start that an obvious effort has been made to stand clear of the worst cut-and-paste asset jobs on Steam. It's a nice looking game with a serviceable eerie score that earnestly attempts to build up a creepy atmosphere without jackhammerng your speakers with obnoxious jump-scares.

With that said, the game is far too repetitive to keep anybody but the most inexperienced horror fan on edge. You move from one room to the next, tracking down keys. The hook is that Wooden Floor is supposed to be procedurally generated but you have to close the doors behind you to allow that to happen which completely shatters the fluid disorientation that the game wants to mine out of that mechanic and it's something that has been done far better in even the most mediocre of this platform's indie games. Even Hektor, as decidedly average as it was, managed a far better job of dizzying its player with its random room generation.

There's the occasional attempt to break things up with a chase sequence here and a boss fight there but they feel like late afterthoughts, as if Wooden Floor itself knows that it's struggling to hold your attention and so procedurally generates you something else to play in a panic.

Not terrible. Nowhere near interesting. Full review below.

This is not a typical horror game, it's more of a creepy haunted house simulator. And it's very interesting.
A lot of bad horror games have come out recently and this is a step in the right direction. It's not perfect, but it's got it's own vibe, and it works well.
and it's 6 bucks.

So ask yourself: Do I like the idea of a house that does what it pleases? Would I find it fascinating to roam around a building where the tension is based more on shifting geometry rather than lurking monsters? Am I tired of paying money for a "horror" "game" that is 'predictable' and 'broken'?

If you want a new freak out experience please check out Monstrum, it's fantastic. If you have a few bucks and want a weird little head trip that's fine being its own thing, pick this up and support a talented developer.

And, PS, a note to the developer. I would be happy to send you a few corrections grammar-wise to the notes lying around. I love your game and I think the slightly broken english is the one thing that needs a fix pronto.

This is another game where I wish there was a "maybe" option between yes or no as far as recommending goes.On the one hand, I liked the look and feel. The sounds creeeped me out and were great! On the other hand I hate games that have no save and there was almost no story line/plot. In the end I decided that I liked it enough to give a weak thumbs up.

M'aiq thinks Wooden Floor is a great game, and for a price of six septims, it is most definitely worth it. Khajiit will now explain the "pros" and "cons" of this, the game that has been played.

NO SPOILERS. M'aiq does not like these. Neither do you.

Cons:

-No save feature, so it is a one time sit down play unless you know exactly which chapter you left off on, which it doesn't tell you, but this one completed the game in an hour, which leads to the next con.

-Much shortness. This is an indie game, M'aiq understands this, but a little longer would be acceptable to Khajiit.

-M'aiq felt like a dwemer whale in the Abecean while playing. No crouching, Khajiit doesn't THINK there was a sprint feature, although Khajiit did it at one point....maybe. How one is unsure whether or not they sprint is left to one's imagination.

Now this one will go over the goodness of the game.

-The music is very well to the ears, M'aiq very much enjoyed listening to the songs. It was almost like Khajiit's personal bard. Khajiit likes bards, but only when they sing of fur hats and calipers...but not at the same time. It is like mixing food, bad to the palate.

-There was an overall tenseness to the game. No extreme scares, but always things watching you, watching Khajiit, watching Hieronymus Lex. But M'aiq would not know anything about that.

-This game was thought about, not simply made. The graphics may not be to the liking of the ones who adore such, but the gameplay more than makes up for it. You will not be disappointed. Khajiit was not. Neither will you be.

-The song at the end encounter of the game mesmerized M'aiq. This one played the part once, twice, three times, until Khajiit's brain spoke up and said there will be enough of that. You will see.



M'aiq is done talking now.

First of all, strike the idea of this being a horror game from your mind. The developer was smart to not put that tag on this game but apparently some users couldn't resist. It's not scary. At all.

This game takes a leaf out of the books of such games as Dear Esther and Anna focusing more on trying to create an environment than to create gameplay. Not exactly my cup of tea but I'm fine with games that try to do this. Even if they do have an increasingly annoying unfiltered, nonrandomized creaking noise in the background every few seconds.

So I was still on board as I was getting lost due to the dodgy lighting not allowing me to see where a particular door is. I was with it, I was fine! But then, platforming section out of nowhere? And poorly done with weak timing and arbitrary waiting grinding away at my patience instead of testing my skill at 3D platforming. Starting to lose me.

Then follow that up with an escape sequence... wait an escape sequence? I don't have a run key and if I did you didn't have the courtesy to tell me about it. How am I supposed to do an escape sequence in this game, walk out at the exact speed I walked into the room while avoiding arbitrarily placed and completely unchallenging obstacles to a soundtrack out of a free creator's pack with wooden planks chasing me?

... oh... yes apparently.

I was actually pleased when it bugged out and a key disappeared so that I could go play something else. This game is maybe worth $1.00 for the novelty and the few moments at the beginning that show some promise but I'm glad I didn't fork over any more than that.

4/10

I'm hoping Wooden Floor 2 is a lot better than this. Unfortunately, this game has very little value as a horror game. It's somewhat creepy, but as far as being disturbing or scary, "somewhat creepy" is the only thing I could say about it, as there are no moments where the game really feels scary.

You can't run with the character, which makes the game feel very sluggish, and the game can be very confusing at times. It's hard to know what you can interact with and even then, sometimes pointing the mouse at the right spot can be off sometimes (also, the game shows you a mechanic of picking up & carrying items at the beginning, but that's never used again for the rest of the game). The game's intro is terrible - every time you start it, you have to set your resolution and gamma level, then a "play in a dark room" screen, then the creator's logo, all of which are unskippable - and if you accidentally press Esc, you quit the game and need to go through all of it again. As for the story, there is barely any story. The final part of the game tries to show some story regarding your character, but... It's pretty much nonexistant for the most part and nonsensical for the final part.

But what really completely turned me off from the game was the last part. It's a completely unnecessary boss "fight" where all you do is dodge attacks with your sluggish movement and then step on a few symbols on the floor. If something hits you, you start over. After some tries, I just gave up on the game. Not because I don't like a good challenge, but because it just felt completely boring - it felt like a chore. At one point there's just so much stuff you have to dodge that it just becomes a huge confusing mess. I closed the game and watched the ending on Youtube, then I realized I really didn't miss anything by deciding not to finish the game.

So, here's hoping the second game is better, because this one is really not good.

Oh and as an added note - you can't alt+tab out of the game. Actually, you can, but most of the time it completely messes up the graphics in the game.

I recommend this game for someone who just wants to get a taste of a horror game and I feel the game was put together somewhat well. The game in general leading up to the end was decent, of course being a cheap price as I got it for under 50 cents. With that said, it definitely gives you the creep factor and makes you always wondering and hoping nothing happens. Atmosphere I would rate a solid 8/10, gameplay 7/10. Now for the bad, this game doesnt have too much content and it really suffers, and the thing that raises the finger for you to flip off the game is the fact the end part where you basically have to learn from trial and error without any save. This game has great potential and I do like it, however it needs be advised a bit because the end basically ruins the experience.

Overall: 5.5/10 which is actually decent considering.

I absolutely hate giving bad reviews, especially to indie devs, but I cant honestly recommend this one. Its not terrible, but it isnt good either. It doesnt stand out really, though it certainly tried. I didnt really find the game scary. Creepy, but not scary, and Im a complete wimp when it comes to scary games.

The graphics arent bad, and the atmosphere is reasonably eerie. The audio effects are very well done and the end boss music was VERY good. I loved that part. Also liked the notes you find. Those were a great touch.

I know some reviews claim the game is buggy, but personally, I didnt find any bugs.

One major drawback for me was the lack of options window. The ability to increase or decrease mouse sensitivity would have been a huge improvement, especially for the chase part and the boss fight. Ill be perfectly honest, I couldnt beat the final boss because my mouse was too slow to look to be able to dodge the projectiles effectively. Speaking of improvements, being able to look down all the way would have also been a huge help, especially in those jump puzzles. Its hard to gauge where exactly you stand on a beam when you cant look down to see the beam.

There also isnt any save feature or checkpoints. You need to complete it in one sitting, which isnt a huge deal because the game is very short.

The major reasons I cant recommend this though, is that it just wasnt very scary, and as far as I could tell, there really wasnt a "story" to it. Id have loved to know why we are in that house, who "we" are supposed to be, how did the runes in the boss fight fit in, how did the boss itself even fit in, etc... For me, its hard to stay engaged when I dont have a story or purpose in a game, even a horror game.

In the end, it just wasnt that good. Had some great ideas, decent graphics, great soundtrack, and a creepy atmosphere, but the ideas just didnt come together very well.

Wooden Floor. That idiotic name provides a good sense of how much thought went into this seven thousandth lame Amnesia knock off.

I could see the effort that was made into this, but this is not horror. This is not fun. The motion blur and controls kils me from the inside. Buy it on sale.

Closing doors behind you! what a good idea. (play it, you'll get it)

+ : creepy, no life-taking jumpscares (that maybe "-" for some people, not me tho hehe), nice controls, ok graphics, wonderful idea, platforming parts, adorable books, fun boss fight (or whatever it is, may be "-" )

- : no menu (you get to choose resolution and gamma tho), no sprint! (this one is annoying) ((although sometimes it felt like im spritning)), short

Fav moment: try to fail good amount of times at platforming section when stuff's floating.

Despite mixed reviews, GG, recommended to buy on SALE, 7/10 would wood again
