Case #8 is a truly not bad horror, which scares you by atmosphere and banal screamers. Also here exist a story with some puzzles for walkthrough.
Some pluses:
1. Atmosphere helps you to feel yourself alone and abandoned
2. Low price and trading cards
3. Not bad graphics and soundtrack

And minuses:
1. A lot of f***ng screamers
2. No way to change any options
3. Possible crushes, I have only one for the whole game

Crashed after 10 minutes. Has no options menu. Doesn't tell you what the controls are. Looks terrible. Sounds terrible. Stupid story backgroun. II tried to open a box and got stuck in what I guess what was some kind of mini-game, but there were no instructions and no indication of what I was supposed to be doing and no way to exit the mini-game I could find.

This game is good and scary. My 19 year old daughter and I had a blast playing this together, on the couch, in front of a 73" screen.

It crashes when transitioning between levels, but the easy workaround is to restart, and it picks back up right where you left off: the next level.

Any game that crashes like this is not worth buying. We should get our money back until they can fix the problems.

It started off well, but the game crashing ruins the entire gameplay.

I rarely ever give a negative review but when I do it's for a good reason. I played your game today for about 40minutes or so and I sadly had to stop playing it and you'll see once my video that I made of your game goes up tomorrow at 4pm on my youtube channel.

I'll start of by saying I had mixed feelings about the game. I liked it in someways and disliked it in other ways.

Positives :
1. Good Scares
2. Good ambiance noises
3. Nice graphics

Negatives:
1. Game crashes after every loading screen.
2.There are some glitches in the game where my character cant move.
3. I was confused about the laser guns and why nothing was happenig when all of the beams were on? I was wandering for a good 15minutes or so trying to figure out what I was missing and couldnt find anything.
4. The character's slow paced walk is too slow for my liking, even pressing the shift button down doesn't make the character go that much quicker.

I didn't want a bad experience on this game. infact I was very much extied to try this out and have a good outcome..sadly this didn't happen. I can only be honest with my opinions from the experience I've had. I think personally the game needs more work and the glitche's and crashing needs to be resolved in order for people to have a better experience.

If the crashing and the glitches get resolved then yes, I maycome back to this and try again. However, while the game has these issues I cannot recommend it at all.

Honestly the game is kind of interesting, but not really worth the price.

The graphics were nice, and the atmosphere was great, but the world still felt blocky, so adding more static objects or something to make it feel real and not square would be awesome. The walking felt really slow, but considering the first part of the game is set in a small area, it makes some sense if they want the game to play a tad longer, but even the running was barely faster than that and felt way too slow for a game. The puzzles I played were pretty bland, lack-luckster, and had been done countless times since the 90's, nothing really special there, although I didn't get the full experience as the game keeps crashing when loading the 2nd area. Sound effects were great, but the lack of music made it awkward. No, not tense, or suspensful. Awkward, and kind of distracting from the whole atmostphere.

The writing seems bland, un-motivated, and very simplistic. It's kind of obvious they were going off of nothing here, which isn't inherently bad, but it really didn't have anything special going for it. Bland "puzzles", bland writing, no music, and decent at best graphics didn't really give this game much to stand on.

Honestly, not a bad game at all, the devs are off to a good start, but it doesn't seem polished yet. I can't say it doesn't feel complete, as I didn't get a chance to finish the game, but the part I HAVE played, the beginning, wasn't very polished, and the beginning is where you want the majority of your polish, since it's the first thing the player gets to experience for your game, and will form A LOT of assumtions and expectations for the rest of your game, so it's important to set that tone and atmosphere correctly, but who knows? Maybe it has better puzzles once you beat the beginning in 10 minutes!

Overall has the potential to be a cool game, but right no it's not worth the money unless it's you have some extra steam-cash laying around. I think the developers have potential, FOR SURE! They just need to work on polishing their skills a little more and maybe communicating with others in their field to gather opinions and playtesters to REALLY polish the game and make it a solid $20 experience rather than a half-baked $4 one. Maybe do some more research as to the deep, intricate analysis of video games. Games aren't as simple as just making them, there is A LOT of thought that must go into all aspects of games, and that's something I personally find enjoyable to educate myself about, and is a necessity for any budding game-developer. Good luck to the devs and their future endeavours, and if you decide to buy the game, I hope you can actually load all parts of it!

EDIT: As a side note, there are no options in the game either. No brightness, no volume, no resolution, nothing. Just "New Game", "Load Game", and "Exit". Don't expect anything else.

Case #8


i cannot recommend this game because i could not finish it - crash to desktop when trying to access the video in chapter 1 / when trying to load chapter 2 / when trying to load chapter 4 - the problem was not resolved in this time since the game was launched ( the developer acknowledged the problem ) !

3. when trying to load the level after the dream sequence

sugestion make the text on screen with other color - you cant see what it says with the white letters on blue background !


.....hope i can finish the game anyway :D !


.....number 3 end game :( - it doesnt load the next level


Developer response :

"Videos must require certain codecs.
Try a few times. The game shows error before level 2 and 4"


the "solution" proposed by the devloper is not really a fix and it didnt worked !

1.2 hours from my 2.2 hours total playtime is actually me trying to load chapter 4 !


I tried 10/10 times - the game crashed every time !

Boy, I wish I loved anything as much as this game loves crashing. There's not even any rhyme or reason as to WHY it could be crashing sometimes; it's just doing it because it has a burning passion for crashing and it's not going to let you or its parents or the town mayor tell it otherwise. It crashes at the start menu. It crashes at the loading screens. It crashes if you try and record it. It crashes when you enter a room. Let me tell you, if Case #8 could crash while it was crashing, it'd be all over that. There are people kept in padded cells and fed on a pole that are more stable than this game.

Which is kind of a shame because, honestly, Case #8 isn't a horrible game. 'Good' might be stretching it but it's at least average, bundles together a handful of decent scares and is fairly priced. From what I managed to play, there's nothing in the way of combat with the game wheeling out some basic puzzles and item collecting instead as you progress around the prison, gathering the odd piece of scattered lore here and there. It's pasted together in FPS Creator which might well be the source of its problems as this definitely isn't the first time a game from there has been spat out riddled with mystifying bugs.

Obviously, I can't recommend something this ridiculously broken at the moment, regardless of the game's quality. It's possible to shoulder your way through a lot of the crashes by reloading or relaunching but I reached a point after the third stage where it refused to pass the loading screen five times in a row and, with the gaming backlog I'm sure we all share, I had to ask myself whether it was worth the strife to persist with it. I settled on a 'no'.

Whatever joy I managed to squeeze out of this crashaholic is below:

4.8/10 - Almost a Winner, Just A Little Too Raw!

I don't know if this is considered the finished product; but I can say that there is definitely room for improvement. My computer sucks, but its old school consistent and never has programs crash. This game with amazing accuracy will crash every 15-30 minutes for no apparent reason.

You are prisoner #8, and have allegedly killed (7) other people including your family. Something at the underground prison has gone ghastly wrong and an opportunity to escape has presented itself. You attempt to flea but soon realize things aren't going to be as easy as anticipated. You are not alone…

Overall, the game is pretty average once you get past the crashes. Everything is just a little too bare bones for me to completely enjoy this one. There are no settings, no characters, little story elements and too few interactive elements. If anything I would classify this as an Early Access Exploration game.

Worth $0.99-$1.99 assuming you know up front about the issues.

Game crashed a few minutes in. Maybe it'll be fixed in the future.
No explanation of controls leading to lots of guessing.
No clear explanation (or indication) if a door is locked or needs power or is unlocked.

You're a prisoner in an underground prisoner put in isolation. You were sent to prison for murdering your family. I guess you are innocent? You are told all this in some fairly clunky text.

Level design looks okay from what little I saw before the crash.

I'd wait on this one folks. Maybe the developers will fix it and make it a bit more stable.

Case #8 is yet another cookie-cutter first person horror game. I'd say it's a technically poor one, but despite the frequent crashes and bugs, it does get an acceptable framerate, so overall it's average for its genre in that area.

Walk around a bunch of poorly lit rooms, pick up items and activate arbitrary event flags so that you can open doors and walk around more poorly lit rooms. If that sounds boring as hell, don't worry. The game also attempts a few jump scares, which lack any followup and thus end up being about as scary as a typical YouTube Poop.

The story is a different kind of bad in each chapter. Chapter 1 sets up the bland "escape the place" plot common among amateur games. In chapter 2 you have to glitch yourself through a door to get some dynamyte, which you then stand too close to as it goes off in order to set up the next chapter. Chapter 3 is a clone of P.T. I haven't played or even watched P.T., but I can still tell it's a clone because the level's Steam Trading Card is labeled "P.T." I guess when you admit your game is a rip-off it instantly becomes an homage. Finally, chapter 4 reveals that the player character committed the crime that the game said he committed at the beginning, and then ends with a "To be continued." So in summary, the game goes from cliché storm to idiot plot to borderline plagiarism and concludes on an anticlimax. What a great way to spend an hour and a half.

It's okay for the game to suck, though, because it's only four dollars, and everyone knows that MSRP is the only metric on which we should base our expectations. Nevermind that good games like Ballpoint Universe: Infinite are in the same price point; if it's under five bucks, all standards go out the window!

Seriously, though, ♥♥♥♥ this game with a red herring laser mechanism.

UPDATE: Just noticed that the vast majority of positive reviews are blatant sockpuppets (no details, just "Good game", "Cool game", "Nice horror", etc). Peace, this isn't the App Store. You're trying to sell to people who actually enjoy video games; people who are more savvy than you're apparently used to. This kind of behavior reflects very badly on you, so cut it out.

The game does crash often and doesn't save often enough. The puzzles are random non-sense and don't always work like they should. I ran into a wall literally, and fell out of the map. The game feels and looks half done and half ♥♥♥ made. I have never wanted my money back with any game I didn't like after purchasing but this is the first. Hostel creators or object in the game have large hit boxes and are unnecessarily hard to get past. I just don't like this game...

I would NOT recommend this game to anyone. If you do end up buying this game then just don't go over two hours so you can get your money back.

Unplayably broken.
At first I wasn't able to run the game at all. After giving the program admin privileges it finally started, showing me immediately the main menu. There's no logo, no title screen, nothing. Weird. And in the menu I've discovered the game doesn't allow you to change anything - not even screen resolution or mouse sensitivity. That is absolutely unacceptable.
The game itself looks surprisingly nice for a low-budget title and the puzzles in the first level were quite entertaining. However, the game keeps crashing, for example when accessing the video terminal. This is pretty bad because it doesn't save your position in the middle of the level so the crash means you have to start over from the beginning.
And then I reached the elevator, the game saved... and crashed again. And since then the loaded position crashed every single time, preventing me from ever seeing level 2.
It's a shame because the game looked promising. Right now I'm asking for a refund but if the game gets fixed, let me know and I may update the review.
