Let me just get this out of the way... this is an "horror" game made on FPS Creator.
I played for around 15 minutes, then the game crashed.

Just... what the game has to offer.
Average graphics
Confusing as ♥♥♥♥ storyline
Misspellings all over the place
Cheap scares
Dull gameplay (if there is any)
Non existent atmosphere


Seriously, this is the most average you can get in horror.
Simply don't do this to yourself, go buy a nice game instead of this shovelware.

EDIT: Tried playing it again, but now I can't progress because of a key that didn't spawn where it should. I've lost hope.

I've typically only written positive reviews for games which I found to be exceptionally made, but considering this game has "Mostly Positive" reviews (as is the case for the creator's other works, My Bones and Verge: Lost Chapter), I feel compelled to write my first negative one so you know the truth.

"White Mirror", quite simply, is generic, bought-asset-ridden GameJolt fodder. The type of game you would normally be able to get for free - and in fact, you can find a better version of almost this exact same game free of charge online. It's called "Phobia". The story, asset packs and the flow of stage transitions are almost identical except Phobia's scares are effective, it has actual puzzles and it features a runtime almost twice that of "White Mirror."

The problems in "White Mirror" are numerous. No options screen (in fact, the creator encourages you to edit the setup.ini file yourself), constant grammatical errors, frequent loading screen crashes, an exploitable, buggy enemy, a key with a timed spawn, nonsensical assets like a newspaper featuring a YouTuber and a nineteenth century "wanted" poster, and all sorts of other inconveniences. The game is only half an hour long, yet manages to overstay its welcome by the halfway point and even end abruptly after a rehashed "puzzle."

While I can't recommend the game in any capacity, I can recommend two other things. First, that Steam take measures to end the positive-review spam that this developer has used on "White Mirror" and his previous two games. Second, the people who keep Greenlighting this dev's games need to take the hint already that the final product will be disappointing.

Oh, and the game's story is incomprehensible - mostly due to horrendous translation - and contains no mirrors. So there's that. Cheers!

White Mirror is Infernal Dream's third indie horror game - not that I played the ones before yet - and just one of those mediocre 15 minute hits on horror with really, really, REALLY bad narrative translation. For the record, my play time is for the pure purpose of dropping game cards. It might have been a recommendation if you are a strict horror games collector who wouldn't mind the lack of a story, but for the ordinary gamer who'd enjoy a decent horror, this clearly is not it.

Our game here has the implication of a story through some notes scattered around the environment, but the narrative translation is so genuinely bad, I'd be fascinated if someone would be able to understand who is who, and what's been going on. From the fragmented word usage in the notes, I've manage to gather that our hero is some kind of an occult collector/artifact hunter in search of an item called "The White Mirror". His search leads him to our starting area, a seemingly abandoned house. There is someone called Martin leaving us most of the notes, and I guess that's an informant of some sorts. As we go further into the house, we'll discover the mention of another person - P.G. - who should have been the former proprietor of the said mirror... and no, said mirror won't even make an appearance in this 15 minute horror shot.

Graphic wise, it is mediocre. Nothing miraculous, nothing horrendous. Darkness and color shades are real heavy though as if that's a prerequisite for horror games. Shadows are heavily relied on to hide the absence of an interesting environment. The whole space is pretty much empty, without any scenic display or relevant appearance. One good thing that can be said about the atmosphere is the use of sound effects. They are successfully recorded, quite unnerving and placed around to trigger in just the right time. Once you outgrow those, you get bored straight though.

Even though the game can be categorized as a horror, it is not atmospherically strong enough to unsettle you. The gameplay itself doesn't compensate for that either. For the duration of your whole game, the only threat you'll face will appear by the ending and you can easily bug it out to call it a day. There is only one "puzzle" that will ask you to hit some keys in the correct order used for 3-4 times. Aside that, you keep collecting some keys and items to progress. Yup, that's all. Oh, and you are given the opportunity to drink some wine and see everything in shades of red and a bit distorted from time to time. Cheers.

It's not a necessarily horrible game. It just isn't interesting enough to spare time for. As long as you know what it is, you can try to give it a shot, or spare the money and watch a playthrough video. It is short and not much of an experience anyhow. The most disturbing negligence for me was the lack of decent translation for narratives. That downright kills the immersion, and there is nothing else to keep you interested anyhow.

Okay, it's all here.. my play of this including the bug thread the developer has already deleted:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QLjMBjZygLs

*******************************************************************
NEW! Got the game working (New PC with fresh install of Windows 7)
Watch my new video and Review of this game here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J1r4LRIeeYI
*******************************************************************
Hours after this project, not game.. "project" came available on Steam, many people were experiencing the exact same crash that I did in the video above, but the developer simply told them that the problem ON THEIR END, "likely an illegal operating system" he even said! SMH. That thread was deleted when I made my own thread because he first locked the error thread up to avoid any more posts on it

The game plays for about 5 minutes before crashing hard with an FPSC error (FPSC = A shooter FPS game making software published by 'The Games Creators').

With a developer claiming this obviously common hard crash of his game is "rare" and "unheard of" and likely caused by "you having pirated, illegal software" and that "he doesn't know how to fix it", do you REALLY want to pay ANY amount of money for this?

Terrible game, and even worse developer support.

Avoid at all costs! ..Just sayin'

-Game tells you to go to the setup.ini file within your steam folders to change the resolution and options, there are no in game options.

-The game tells you F is the action key when it's actually X.

-Terrible bugs and the developer tells everyone the issues are because of their computer

-Game itself is stupid and lazy featuring out of place fonts and colors with horrible grammar/misspelling.

-The "White Mirror" title in the game's image isn't even capitalized correctly.

IT DOESNT EVEN HAVE A MIRROR IN IT.

pls im getting 20 refunds. fist me

Even at $1.79 not worth it.

Starts out interestingly enough. Game says it is a puzzler and the first puzzle is to get into the house. Which a note tells you (in incredibly broken English) can only be opened with a key. And then tells you where the key is. You walk around the house, walk back to the fountain and there the key is, sitting in the basin of a fountain. Of course, there's no real reason to actually look for it because as soon as you approach it a message on the screen says, "PRESS 'F' TO GET KEY". Okay, so you grab it and continue around the house head down into the basement to turn on the generator and head around back into the house. Walk in the house, go up to your room and cutscreen to the next night.

Wait, what? Where all the puzzles?

There are in fact only about 3 puzzles in this game and those have to do with the creative combination of pressing, J K and H in an order which it isn't exactly hard to figure out.

Scary? Well, maybe if you're three years old or if you have some kind of anxiety disorder and shouldn't play horror games.

Even the words "Horror Game" are gross overstatement. Though there are creaky sounds, you see a flash of a monster, and actualy encounter a monster later (hint -- run around it), the only horror here is how poorly the game designer slaughters the English language. Here's a hint, guys -- this game ain't so big that you couldn't get some kid on the internet translate what you write into passable English, maybe cost you $5. Hell, I would have done it for free.

The "climax" of the "game" is in the last area, down underground. You walk into the area and in spooky red, splatter-like font in the center of the screen the word "RUN" appears. So you run. And you run. And you run. Up the stairs and then out of the house. Game over.

Wait, what?

To call this a "game" is like calling a slingshot a "firearm".

I kept waiting for the game and the horror to begin. And then it was over.

Only thing I can conclude is that some dude was playing around and made a test run of a game, then decided to put it up on Steam because...I dunno, maybe he needed the fifty cents?

What do I expect for $1.79? I guess more than almost nothing. I could buy a Coke zero with $1,79 and at least I could enjoy that twice -- going in and then coming out.

Honestly, I was going to write an in-depth review for this one, but unfortunately, this game is a buggy, crashing mess of a game. So it's not worth my time or you time and money. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvstuvGd7ck

The game is not horror game, if you do not have a fear.

This should know every developer of a good horror game. Get a key, go throught the door, get another key, go throught another door - well, this game has to be a joke. I usually write reviews only to games which i am interested in. But I have to make an expection with this "horror" game.

Story
As I already mentioned, this "horror" game is just about opening doors. In the story I was a bit lost, because I think that a lot of things did not make sense so at the end I also stopped to reading letters.

Graphics
One plus of this game. I really like the part in the cave, which was very nice graphically processed, as well as fine tuned light.

Audio
I love those creepy sounds in the game - big plus. White Mirror has some of the best horror sounds. It often happened to me that i had goosebumps from the sound in game.

Gameplay
What i am missing in the game is options. Enemy appeared once or twice in the entire game and it gets stuck into the wall. The key that you needed, appeared after a few minutes. Boring puzzles and short gameplay (30 minutes).

Price
The price of game is 1,99€. Personally, I would give this game as free to play, it might have a little more positive reviews.

4/10

The story makes little sense and the bad grammar doesn't help. Short and boring, it's not worth the money. At least I had one good jump scare.

Very dull and plodding best sums up this game. Just wonder around very short levels picking up keys and flicking switches sums the game up. There are simplistic puzzles, sort of. I say sort of because sometimes even getting the puzzle wrong unlocks the the door anyway. Oh and the predicatable 'jump scare' attempts that are more luaghable than scary.

Graphically its no looker, although the ambient sounds are actually pretty decent. Really there is so much better available and this has bundle filler written all over it. It's how I ended up owning it.

Alone in the room.... Check
At night................... Check
No other sound on... Check

I am ready for another horror game... This one is also very short.. for being a quick 5 level exploration game.
The sound.. The Setting.. the dust in the air.. the creepy note.. everything is quite well made. There are just really 1 note puzzle in the entire game of 10 minutes.

For it's worth... I did get one big jump scare near the end of the game and it got me quite good.

Lack of content is problem of this very short horror game once again. But i am sure those of us that needs to be spooked every once a while wouldn't mind a small game like this to boot us up..

7.5/10.. very quick short game to scare yourself or girlfriend a little.. play it if you already own it.. it's not long but quite well made.
