DreadOut: Keepers of the Dark is a standalone DLC for DreadOut. If you played the first game, then you will know when this part occur in the timeline. Otherwise, you will be slightly loss, as to why is the main character, Linda at that place, why is she equiped to the brim etc. Anyway, if you played the original DreadOut, then you will know how the gameplay is, but for the newcomers, it's practically similar to the Fatal Frame series. You will not use a gun, nor magic, nor an exorcist talismans, but a camera to exorcise the unwanted beings from beyond.

Basically, while the Fatal Frame series take place in Japan, this game takes place in Indonesia, so you will see several supernatural beings that belongs to the Indonesian horror folklore. Some are bad ghosts, which you need to exorcise, while some are relatively neutral ghosts, which will not harm you if you do what they want for their final requests. In this game, you are in some kind of limbo realm, and you have to act as a Ghostbuster team of one to escape this realm. If you die, fret not, you will just enter another limbo of undeathness.

I have to say, being a person that gets spooked by horror games, I got spooked countless times. The music is eerie, the atmosphere is chilling, and the most important part is the jump scares. Yep this game have tons. From a ghost instantly killing you, or screaming at you, there are tons. It's a jump scare bonanza, though some jump scares here are absolutely ridiculuous because I am either moving away from the boundary of the realm, or for some god damn reason, the developers devide it to be so. I mean, who puts a damn jump scare near the portal?

Graphic wise, well this is made by an Indonesian (obviously) indie company, so it's not that pretty like those AAA games like Dead Space, Doom or so, but it's adequate, however I can't say the same for the cutscenes though. The cutscenes rock a freaking low FPS somehow. Also without knowing much on the gameplay of the first game, you will be pretty lost in what to do, how to swap cameras etc. Heck, even if you do know it, you may also feel lost at certain parts of the game (I am looking at you, you god damn assassin ghost). However, the biggest gripe of this game is that it's really short. In one playthrough, you may complete collecting everything, exorcise every ghosts and complete all the game achievements. That's about 3-5 hours of playtime.

Still, I will slightly recommend this game, just because there's not much game that uses the camera as a weapon (Fatal Frame is not available on the PC unless you use other means), and it's pure hardcore horror. Wait for the sales to get it, as it will be slightly cheaper then, making it worth the money. Just be careful of the jump scares though, as it's definitely not for the faint hearted.

DreadOut: Keepers of the Dark is the second installment of the DreadOut series and a standalone expansion to the original DreadOut. If you haven't played the original DreadOut before I recommend you go play that first since the story starts there. Don't worry, I also got a review for that one. For those of you who have played the original DreadOut, here's my review with pros and cons below if you're too lazy to read:

First things first: the story. The story revolves around Linda, our protagonist, who, after the events of the original DreadOut, got transported into the spirit realm (or at least one part of it). We start our game in Limbo where we can see an astral showreel of what has been going on in the first game through pictures and audio. When we head to the bright light, we are greeted by a kind of hub world that features eight doors with eight different realms to go visit. Your ultimate goal is to do whatever it takes to get back to the real world and leave the spirit realm. And that's about it really, nothing else happens. Which is kind of a letdown for me.

And what will you be doing for the most part? Right, you'll banish spirits just like in the original DreadOut. Gameplay wise the mechanics are all the same, nothing really changed. Except now you got the big camera and your phone right from the start. There's a bunch of interesting ghosts to banish and items to collect and even one or two puzzles here and there but that's about it. I have to say I'm a bit disappointed that it didn't hold anything too new and fresh and interesting. At least most of the spirits you will have to banish are new, each with different mechanics and strategies to defeat them. So that's a plus.

But are those spirits scary at all? Well, that's a difficult question to answer. You see, the original DreadOut had problems with holding its horror factor during its first chapter but experienced a very neat comeback in its second chapter with all-new spirits and spookyscariness. KOTD struggles to even conjure up any feeling of terror or horror right from the start and doesn't get too innovative later on either. In the original DreadOut I felt at least uneasy in some areas but in this game I just went up to the spirits, took a few hits maybe, and banished them. Yes, there were some jump scares but most of them were cheap, unlike in the original DreadOut where they were well-placed in my opinion. So the overall horror is severely lacking. In some areas I can sure see why people would get uneasy, given all the phobias some people have but it doesn't really go beyond that.

And getting to banish some of those spirits is a pain in the butt. Seriously. Some of them are trial and error, some can kill you in one hit and you gotta start over from Limbo, some are just plain annoying with how much mobility they have in contrast to you so you can't hit them properly and it just takes ages. But again, at least the spirits were new and fresh and not recycled, I can respect that.

So, since the horror isn't any good, does the music at least get some atmosphere going? Well, it does. When it plays. Most of the time there's silence though. Thing is, when you trigger certain events the music and your surroundings change and the first time around, it made me feel uneasy for a bit so that was commendable indeed.
On another note: The menu music is REALLY good, where can I find that track? I want it.

Aside from all of that, the game has some eastereggs, some hidden references to other things in the genre (although I suppose the game itself is a huge reference to Fatal Frame) and a neat aesthetic.
Also, the devs have finally fixed the texture resolution which was horrible in the original DreadOut and they have fixed the ridiculous loading times. Huge plus right there.

Now, let's get onto some real nitpickin'.
The camera movement. It just confuses me. Why, exactly, does my camera stutter every couple of centimeters when I'm in Limbo or the hub world? Annoys the hell outta me. The third place this happens in is the last level and the fight against the end boss. It made the fight unnessecarily difficult because as soon as I looked around my camera stuttered a couple meters sideways and I couldn't aim properly.
Also what they didn't fix are the Kuntilanak and the Sundel Bolong getting bugged out when you fight against them. Makes the fight really annoying as soon as you try to banish them since they just constantly port around the whole place.
And some of the fights are just plain unfair, leaving you in Limbo way too often and it just steals your time.

At least the game got no crashes, steady framerate, nice graphics and boob physics. So they did something right. Also I kinda adore the Indoseian theme of it all. Which is why I give this game a thumbs up in the end.


Pros and Cons:

+ neat aesthetic
+ new spirits
+ fixed graphics and loading times
+ fantstic OST
+ boob physics

- heavy camera stuttering in some areas
- bland presentation with a hub world instead of an interconnected set of places
- unnessecarily difficult boss fights which are unfair at times
- bland continuation of the story
- horror = zero

Would I recommend this game?
All in all I think it's commendable if you really liked the original DreadOut (like me) but I'd still say: get it when it's on sale, it's not worth full price. I'll give it a solid boob physics out of ten. Although I respect that the developers tried something new with the new spirits they put in the game but it still isn't enough to get me to praise it more than I did.

If you enjoy having clean pants, this might not be the game for you. This game is very scary XD I nearly crapped my pants a bunch of times while playing. lol. The game is worth the 6 dollars. It gives you a bunch of gameplay and a great story. Here is a gameplay with few of the rooms. Even Pewdiepie played the game. So it's good somehow lol

Now with over twice the pretty girls as the original Dreadout, and in higher definition. Run through this town annoying spirits with your camera, from angles you probably shouldn't, but we know you will.

Nevermind the fact that she's minding her own business and seems completely harmless. Film her sleeping in her nightgown, brushing her hair, or tending to her ex-lover's motorcycle.

No sorry, not a good game.

Everyone that gave this game a good review must be new to video gaming, this game is ♥♥♥♥.

First "realm / room / whatever"
You don´t know what to do in this Boss fight, die instantly, wait for a ♥♥♥♥ing minute until the girl stands up that you can control her, run along a ♥♥♥♥ white light road, stand infront of the boss again ... die instantly .... repeat.

This is not a game, this is a piece of crap.

DreadOut: Keepers of The Dark is a game about shooting models with your camera.

You play as some girl, a student (I guess?) photographer looking for models.

You're equipped with a nice #instagramenabled #smartphone camera and a high end SLR camera to really capture each model perfectly.

So whats the catch? If you take bad pictures the models get angry and hurt you with their hair or they even might run into you. So unprofessional!

Take the best pictures and the models will reward you with glamour points (Golden orbs that you get for each perfect shot) after shooting some nice pictures the models will eventually leave you alone so you can get to more casting.

Collect sweet accessory, put together some stuff and get new models! So there's puzzle stuff too.

There's a lot of models to cast, some models aren't that easy though so make sure you get out that sick SLR camera and really capture their beauty.

Get out there and start casting!

Damn i just love asian mythology, i love that legendary creatures and ghosts and i love Dreadout :)

Dark, creepy, with awesome sounds and great atmosphere,
but dont expect anything big, its just extension about banishing ghosts and creatures... thats all, anyway its fun :)

I also appreciate creativity of making enemies, every enemy is different and interesting ofc with info about original legend

if you liked Dreadout or you are maniac to asian mythology like me, totally buy it :), in other case i am not sure, you should probably try Dreadout first ;)

To be brief: a decent contribution to the 'girl in paranormal danger' third-person horror genre, especially if you enjoyed the original DreadOut.

Contrary to how the original DreadOut played as a Fatal Frame-style adventure, Keepers of the Dark is situated more like a boss rush mode; wander between eight levels to collect items, files, and deal with ghost encounters. It does, mostly effectively, distill the engaging mechanics of the first game into a non-linear, more compact format. Indonesian folklore, as it was in the original game, is still terrifyingly hardcore.

Criticisms so far:
-Combat, much like in DreadOut, can be frustrating. Linda moves with all the agility and speed expected of an Asian girl being menaced by ghosts (read: exactly none) and weapon switching/readying can be clunky. A few enemies can easily gain on Linda and keep her knocked down, extending boss fights by virtue of having to resurrect with each death.
-Most of the environments are simply revisited areas from the original DreadOut with some minor changes. However, all except a few of the ghosts are brand new enemies. All of the new ghosts I've encountered are compelling and interesting, particularly the "Mother" Kami encountered in the sewers.
-It's clear the English localization is not done by a native speaker. It can add to the atmosphere in some places, but in many of the documents and files the sentence structure becomes wonky if not outright unintelligible.
-While there is an "unemployed person" (as the game calls it, but it's pretty obvious he's a janitor) that provides hints, that resource is pretty quickly run dry. Solutions to puzzles, or much more often just figuring out what triggers the next ghostly event, can seem completely esoteric.

DreadOut is a title that takes heavy inspiration from Tecmo's Project Zero series (Fatal Frame in the USA), where the main character, usually a young woman, explore haunted locations and fight ghosts using a camera.

Keepers of the Dark is a stand alone title that takes place during the middle of the main game, although it has little to no story in it. It features a hub-like main area from where you can access eight different locations with the purpose of hunting down a ghost in each of them (albeit each location usually has more than one). After doing so you'll be teleported back to the hub to repeat the process until you can open the final door (which will unlock at 8 ghosts defeated) and fight the last boss.

Altough a bunch of them are new, most of these areas are taken straight from the main game or even the demo, though they feature some new elements related to the new ghosts.
In addition, some spirits won't appear immediately until you meet certain conditions, like collecting a number of items which may be located in different areas of the game, meaning that a bit of backtracking is required at times.

Combat is exactly the same as the main game, a very simplified version of Project Zero. No limited films, no upgrading system, no special functions or anything of that kind. It's just your phone, which includes a flashlight, and an actual camera with zooming capabilities and a flash function for a short but powerful gleam of light (which will not actually damage enemies). Basically a weapon to fight in the dark and one to fight at long range.

And like the main game, that's the general vibe of KotD: a low budget, unpolished and simplified version of Project Zero with some interesting ideas and moments. One of my favorites is in the school area, where you have to take a photo of a ghost possessing a specific statue among a large number of them. Doing so will force the spirit to run into another statue in a different part of the level, but this will also cause the previous statue to follow you around when it's out of the camera's view. You'll hear the sounds of the statue moving behind you, you'll turn around and see it in a different position, getting closer and closer to you. It's a nice and creepy idea, which actually made me smile instead of frighten me. But in a good way, if that make sense.

If you liked DreadOut, Keepers of the Dark is for you. It's light on story and even shorter, but it's more of the same setting and mechanics, and that might be enough. If you miss Project Zero, give the main game and KotD a try: just remember to keep your expectations in check.

More DreadOut goodness, and as creepy as expected. I would say this game is just as challenging as the first one, but a lot less frustrating and more accessible.

The game performance is greatly improved over the previous game, now smooth without constant micro-freezes. And praise the ghosts, the view no longer changes wildly if you move the mouse while taking a picture (at least with the IrisPhone; it still seems to do it with the SLR).

But, as in the previous game, changing the 'Change Equipment' keybinding is not remembered between game runs. The screen of the IrisPhone is black if bring it up while standing still and doesn't show until you move. Everything else seems to work normally.

Definitely worth the price for more bouncey Linda! :) Now where's the bikini dlc......

Well, I don't know how they did it, but the inadvisably-named Digital Happiness have managed to make a game even less "fun" than the first DreadOut! Don't get me wrong, these games are full of intriguing ideas, fascinating ghost lore, and are spooky-as-all-♥♥♥♥. But they're just not much FUN. The boss fights, in particular, are at times maddeningly awkward, so what in Satan's good ♥♥♥♥ing name were these people thinking when they decided to make an entire side-game full of almost nothing BUT boss fights? And that idiotic "Limbo" ♥♥♥♥ has gone NOWHERE, I might add...all of which means that you get to visit it even more often than you did in the first game. GENIUS!

I really do have to hand it to Digital Happiness for learning ABSOLUTELY NOTHING from the mistakes of their first game. I'm still giving this a pretty decent rating, as you'll see below, but we're definitely moving backwards here, not forwards. I was hoping this game would be an IMPROVEMENT over the original, but no such dice.

I think I'm relieved to see the company's recent announcement, re taking a break from the DreadOut universe for the time being. Perhaps they can go away, try some other styles of games, and in the process learn something about how great games are actually made. Right now they're making really GOOD games...but the potential for greatness is definitely there. They just have to start listening to the people who actually PLAY their product - and I don't just mean their back-slapping cronies - and make adjustments accordingly.

Suffice it to say, if you found the "scissor ghost" in the first game even more aggravating than I did - no mean feat, let me tell you! - you should probably just stay well away. Only recommended to masochists and/or folk so horror-obsessed that they just can't keep themselves away (like my idiot self).

Verdict: 7.5/10.
