“The Park hammers home the point that few things can be more frightening or more disturbing than the fragility of the human mind”

“This is pure psychological horror, with a dash "summer fun gone wrong" tropes thrown in for fun”

About This Game

Set in a creepy amusement park hiding a dark and sinister secret, The Park is a one to two hour long first-person psychological horror experience focusing on intense storytelling and exploration instead of combat and action.

A day at the park... a lost teddy bear... a missing child. As the sun sets over Atlantic Island Park, you must explore its dilapidated rides in search of your son, Callum. As darkness falls, you will experience panic and paranoia through a narrative written by a team of award winning storytellers.

Amusement parks are happy places, filled with the joys of childhood and the exhilarating rush of fantastic rides to be dared. That was the vision of eccentric business man Nathaniel Winter when he opened the doors to Atlantic Island Park in 1977.

Unfortunately, the park's history turned out to be one plagued by tragedy and drama. Its freak accidents, grotesque killings and ghostly hauntings have inspired many a sensational headline, and locals worry the park is far from done claiming innocent lives.

For Lorraine, it's where her worst nightmare began.

WARNING: This experience deals with subject matter that might prove emotionally distressing to some. Player discretion is advised.

  • Explore Atlantic Island Park and step onto rides such as the Ferris Wheel, the Bumper Cars and the Rollercoaster; just beware, some of them have a life of their own
  • Enter the mind of Lorraine, a woman facing every parent's worst nightmare, and unravel her story as well as the dark and tragic history of the park
  • Call out for Callum to respond, and interact with the environment around you while examining clues and listening to Lorraine's own inner voice as the game progresses
  • Compelling graphics and audio deliver a uniquely atmospheric setting rich in mood and mystery, developed by a team of award-winning AAA developers

BONUS: The Park is inspired by a setting within the modern-day myths and mysteries MMO The Secret World. This copy of The Park includes unique in-game items that can be applied to one The Secret World account; the Killer Chipmunk outfit and three powerful, legendary talismans.

It's worth the play for sure. I enjoyed the suspense and the mysterious notes just randomly laying around everywhere. I very well enjoyed the story and the narration. There's only a few jumpscare moments that got me pretty good if someone's specifically looking for that. It does well in a few parts. Especially if you're a fan of crying... Nevermind. I won't spoil any small features but it's definitely worth playing if someone wants a decently good story. I will spoil only 1 thing though and that happens to be how short the game is. I beat it in one sitting. I wanna estimate maybe like a good hour or so.

Very nice game. No useless fighting of any kind, great graphics and a tense atmosphere.
I really liked the ride. Of course there are some minor cons as well.

Playing on big screen the notes can't be read, too small and a hard font. Also the last part of the game gets tedious, taking away the amazing feeling it gave me in the beginning. It's also very short. You can easily finish it in 1,5 hours. Usually I take it slow, want to see every corner and still it only took me a little over 2 hours.

Still I recommend it 8/10.

Product received for free
Spooky but not too spooky. Sound in the game is doing alot for the atmosphere. If you like the superscary horror game genre then I guess this game could be too vanilla for you, but for me it was just the perfect amount of scary elements. I also liked that is very hard to get lost or lose focus on what you are supposed to do. Since I'm not that hardcore horrogame-player, I specially liked this. It made me actually finish the game haha!

Also - the cards you get are valuable (atleast when I wrote this review).

Believe me - I know what I'm talking about if I say this is the best parent simulator ever made. I have three kids and basically you're replaying every parents daily business:

- Caring about your kids
- Beg them to follow your orders
- They don't give a ♥♥♥♥
- You drive insane
- Everybody is pointing at you that you're a bad parent

This game has it's ups and it's downs, but overall I do really like this game! Not so much that it has relatively cheap and awful jumpscares, but because of the fact that it leaves you anxious and creates a psychological atmosphere of what's behind you and what's gonna happen next.
The story explains how much of an awful, bipolar kind of mother and the realtionship this women has with her son. It leads you into the unknown of how messed up this mother is in the head and the creators have made a good game for the price.
The story is good, the graphics are amazing & the overall smoothness of the game is great.
8/10 from me.

Nice walking simulator..Dark and Atmosferic.
Park full of messages and documents...
Story is messed up...
Protagonist messed up...
Overall: Not a bad game, but for 1hour game...overpriced.

For anyone looking to buy this be sure to only pay a few dollars for this when it's on sale. This game is very short and is more about an interactive story than a game. So, don't go into it thinking it's a 10 hour full game or anything like that as if you read the reviews you already can guess it's only a hour and a half or so if you actually look at mostly everything. However, the price tag and short length is all I could think negatively the story is great and makes you think and you will feel like you constantly want to look behind you because you really feel the atmosphere they are expressing through the story. Overall, it's a solid way to spend a few hours and I'd reccomend it highly.

Runs Great, for me at least.
Graphics are decent.
Barely any true jumpscares, def a plus on that.
Easy to get achievements, a plus for me, and a big plus for thos completionists.

As for the story, I personally found it a bit predictable and a little lame/weak. But still, for others it might not be this way, so it's a great atmospheric "horror" story.
Rather a short experience, I beat the game and earned all achievements in under 2hrs(114min) of gameplay.

I give The Park a 7.3/10.

Good creepy story, enough elements to fire up your (morbid) imagination. I loved the graphics, sound and voice acting.
Will certainly replay to see if I can find dome more clues. In the extras section you can get some "nice" free items to use in the Secret World online game.

Mildly scary walking simulator where you walk around an unsettling theme park at night looking for your son while creepy stuff happens. It's only about an hour long though.

Got this in the Bundlestars Demon bundle. Probably not worth £10 on it's own.

If you go into this game knowing that it is only going to take a couple hours at most and are okay with it then I would say give it a shot. It has a decent story and it does have some pretty creepy moments that make it perfect for Holloween season. I would never pay $13 for this though. I would wait for a sale where you can get it for a couple of dollars.

It starts very very weak and really shines in the last minutes of it's story but this doesn't help the bad writing.

The visuals are absolutely terrible for Unreal Engine standards. The shout mechanics are absolutely annoying and in many cases pointless, the game lacks any pacing and leaves you bored for an entirety without any atmosphere or tension, ridicilous bad writing in some of the notes you find, out of place "inspect" mechanics near the end of the game that weren't present before and ridicilous typos.

If you look for a walking sim or horror game with tension and atmosphere, steer clear from THE PARK.

100% completion and all card drops in just over 1.5 hours. Play as a mother looking for her son in a barren amusment park, few cheap jumpscares, generic plot. I got the game via a bundle with loads of other games for far less than its full price. Worth grabbing if you're a completionist and/or a sucker for ANY horror game, and only when it's heavily discounted otherwise just avoid it, you ain't missing much.

Walking simulator. Pretty disappointing. I got this in a Bundlestar Demon bundle. Really not worth $12.99, especially when I can play Blameless for free.

The Park is really dissapointing..

Don't be fooled by the screenshots which make is look intriguing (as I thought it did) Really short and overpriced, under 1 hour long if you don't stop and read everything. Once you get the flow of the game within the first 10 minutes, they use the same technique over and over. You walk and the main character does story related narrative, then you find a ride and interact with it. Then you walk along another fixed path to the next ride and thus the loop continues. It is not scary at all. One cheap jump scare, and a creepy atmosphere in the last 10 or so minutes, but before then it is scare free and the atmosphere is not creepy at all unless you are afraid of squirrels. There is no reason to replay the game as I unintentionally got every achievement in 1 playthrough and there are no interesting collectibles.

Voice acting is good
Last 10 minutes is a step up (even if the ending is overly complicated)

Great experience, short but good and worth a while, something different than most games and something that make you think about life. Maybe little much to pay full price but definitely good game to get it in sale.

Walking simulator with zero decisions, you are on a fixed course through a story with nothing to do besides look at things occasionally. The story gets better towards the end, but is incoherent, and leaves too much ambiguity.

Don't play too dark or you won't even be able to see the jump scares (My fault for believing the recommended settings)

Descent into madness
You play as a mother, who at first seems like a caring mother looking for her child, but as the story goes on it all changes.

The only issue I had with this game was that if I didn't activate a certain event (due to lack of seeing it) I would be going back and forth between locations to find said event. You can't run fast meaning that if you do go back and forth you'll be getting a headache.

This is really my issue, but thought it worth mentioning.

Pick up at a reduced price as my playtime represents, more than likely, double your max playtime as I've read through every paper that was presented to me and the fact that I went through the whole park trying to find the next event.
