I first watched a lets play of this game and another mansion horror game: Pineview Drive. I wanted to give Pineview Drive a negative review because it sucks and is pointless, but that would mean having to pay for it. I already owned Scratches, so lets give this game a positive review instead.

This game is great.

Honestly it's not for everyone, but seriously it's great. Unlike Pineview Drive there is an actual story with real weight to it. Everything has a reason and a consequence, and it's meangingful to a character that you learn to care about.

The game is slow, dated interface and graphics, and requires a lot of reading without voice over. That's a drawback to most people, but it's atmosphere is great and meaningful. It has a couple puzzles and very few jumpscares but they are in places that actually matter to the story and give you a memorable experience unlike a certain other game.

Scratches has a heavy story with not a whole lot of game action, definately not everyone is into that, but this game is beautifully catered to the people who are into that. Great atmosphere, very imersive, great story.

In this game, you play as a drunk man with glaucoma as you attempt to navigate a mansion built for an elf. Your friend Jerry calls you and hangs up after three seconds, and you are tasked with trying to collect and put together mundane objects while somber orchestral music plays. This game has a nice array of challenges, from trying to walk in a straight line to trying to interact with an item without accidentally leaving the room. Your main character has a touching backstory; due to a tragic accident he can only look in 45-degree angles and has a hard time making eye contact with the furniture. I love how the game crashes a lot, too. Really gets into your head. Five dirt stars.

Currently still playing this but what I can say about it now are some pretty noticible flaws. The games pacing is extremely slow; that can make the game drab and flat out boring at times, lack of focus makes exploring the house a chore as you can be sifting through tons of books and notes and random junk; that's made even more irritating by little to no indication of your objectives or how to complete them. The atmosphere and environments are extremely well done and fully realized, they didn't skimp out on the art of the game but the story is uninteresting and the draw of the house being haunted never really sinks in (at least for me it didn't). The space feels too big as you have dozens of rooms to explore (again this was probably done for the realism as it's supposed to be a victorian style house). The puzzles are confusing because of again poor direction and the the limited controls means that searching the house takes forever but is pretty intuitive and works well within the game world at least. Highlights being the art and environments as well as atmosphere but the story is lackluster, some puzzles don't really make sense and the controls and UI are frustrasting. Just my thoughts, will finish it though. I'm sure there's some good to be found, maybe you'll have to dig though.

Seriously a dark and creepy game. Everybody should play this. It does have some difficult puzzles in it. But if you use common sense, you'll be able to figure most of them out.

Primero que nada, quiero acotar que este juego puede traer muchos problemas técnicos así que, por favor, no lo compres sin haberlo pensado dos veces y mucho menos sin haberte informado al respecto. Gracias.

Scratches no es un juego de "terror" en el sentido popular actual. Nada te va a saltar a la cara para que huyas de ello, nada te va a matar, no, Scratches es un juego atmosférico, de "terror atmosférico" si nos ponemos con esas.

Tampoco es un juego para todos, es viejo, sus puzzles son en ocasiones ridículos y en otras ocasones agarran la lógica y la tiran por la ventana. Scratches no es un juego para tontos, tampoco es un juego para gente de poca paciencia. Vas a acabar caminando sobre tus pasos por haber dejado algún objeto del otro lado de la casa (y vaya que es tedioso ir de un extremo a otro).

De plano podría decir que Scratches no es un juego y no estaría tan equivocada. No es un juego de la misma que Dear Esther, Gone Home y Serena tampoco lo son. Son novelas interactivas y no por eso son malos, al contrario. Se basan en la construcción del ambiente, de la atmósfera, para que te sumerjas en ellos y lo hacen con una sutileza preciosa.

Scratches es una aventura con una historia tremenda y una que otra sorpresa, una música escelente y una esctructura a la que se le nota que le dieron cariño al hacerla. Honestamente, si fuese un libro, lo tuviese.

¿Vale los diez dólares? Depende, yo pienso que a pesar de todo NO lo vale. En teoría, Scratches no posee rejugabilidad a menos que vayas por el final especial, pero ¿cuando nos ha gustado un libro demasiado no volvemos a él una y otra vez? Entonces, si vas con la mentalidad de comprarte este JUEGO, no lo hagas, no vale lo que cuesta. Pero si vas con la mentalidad de comprarte una historia de la manera en la cual compras un libro, ya depende de ti.

En resumen, Scratches es recomendado para aquellos que les gusten las aventuras, Lovecraft (es casi una carta de amor para él, vale), hayan disfrutado Myst y sepan en lo que se están metiendo.

An exercise in tedium and insane logic.

This is a point and click horror game similar to games like Myst, but with no sense of consistancy or logic to keep things going. Story driven, and reliant on the whims of the protagonist instead of player decisions, your progression is limited by the stubborness of the character. Want to open a locked door? How about you look inside those pots for a key. Nope, he's not interested until you find a hidden photo that vaguely indicates that a key might be in a pot. Then you can look in the pot.

Most of the time, the correct course of action seems to be to call Jerry, a character who gets increasingly annoyed at the protagonist's inability to do anything themselves. I can certainly relate. After playing for a short amount of time, I'd be very surprised if the protagonist can go to the toilet without asking Jerry for help. After nearly every task on the first day, you need to phone him. Open a door, phone Jerry. Find a newspaper, phone Jerry. Lights don't work, phone Jerry. Phone Jerry. Phone Jerry. 1.5 hours were spent simply wandering around the house clicking on everything trying to find something that might move things forward, then calling Jerry, then trying to find the thing that was not interesting before but is now.

Most of this does not advance the plot at all, but is simply dealing with the hassle of moving into a new house. The first couple of hours were spent establishing that the character is stranded in the house with no power. A little information about evil masks and creepy tribes are hinted at, but then cast aside to deal with the main, super spooky plot of calling in an electrician. When you eventually go down into the spooky cellar to try and fix it yourself, with a creepy atmosphere and tense music...nothing happens.

Interacting with anything is limited by the ludricous thought processes of the protagonist. Want to pick up that tool over there? Nope, it's junk. Nope, there's no reason for you to carry it. But you'd better pick up that can lid, it might come in useful. Wander around the house with a knife? Good idea! Go outside to open the garage now that you have the key? No it's raining, and the character doesn't feel like it. Climb inside a creepy furnace without any cause to do so? Absolutely. Puzzles are rediculously obscure, and variate between pixel hunting and using everything with everything, usually to achieve very simple tasks. 1.5 hourse before anything resembling a plot hook shows up.

While there were some interesting bits here and there, it wasn't worth trudging through the awful puzzles to get to them. Even when scary bits appeared, they were jump scares, with the musical stingers being far more intense than the actual events. I stopped caring about the story very quickly.

In short, save your time and money. For a scary, atmospheric horror game with a plot you discover as you play, go for Amnesia. If you are looking for a deep story that will chill you to the bone, go read a horror book. That way you don't have to deal with endless fetch quests.

Very atmospheric and immersive horror adventure, if you let yourself be immersed. Otherwise, you will probably just get frustrated with, sometimes, illogical puzzles and "aimless" wandering.

Psychological horror at its finest. The story is enticing and very unsettling as it unravels, and the soundtrack accompanies it brilliantly. There are a few issues, such as the strange jumps in logic regarding certain things which needs to be done, and I've consulted a walthrough a couple of times. The game is all about triggers, and can't progress without certain things having been done first. While this is a bit annoying, it's well worth it in terms of story. Another downside is the short length of it (it couldn't possibly be any longer, but I wish it was - it was done in about six-seven hours), and the fact that you can't explore more things with it being a point and click game.

That being said, the game is great, and I definitely recommend it to those who enjoy good old fashioned horror, the unsettling kind which is more than just jump scares and loud noises.

I am going to be completely honest. I normally don't like Horror games are Point & Click. I prefer the ability to freely walk around and explore things. But Scratches more than made up for it by being so incredibly immersive. The example that most readily comes to mind is the skeleton, which I won’t tell you where or why you find it. But that skeleton felt so genuine and seemed to be crying out to me. I actually felt like I was looking at a real corpse. Very few Horror games have managed to so deeply captivate me, so Scratches definitely gets a 10/10 from me.

Truthfully, I was kind of disappointed with this one. Managed to finish it under 10 hours, especially with some parts being really repetitve - like having to call Jerry fifteen times a minute. Story had a lot of promise at the beginning, it really could have gone many, many places. Many beautiful, wonderful, absolutely terrifyingly horrible places. But it didn't. At all. The game technically only half stuck to it's own original premise, truthfully. There were literally TWO plot twists in the last fifteen minutes of the game, and the ending was, unforunately, utterly unclimactic. Shame, because, as I said, the game had a lot of promise. Couple the story disappointment with the fact that the controls are ridiculously difficult to work and are infuriating to the point I considered just stopping the game altogether a few times and it's not great. On the brighter side, the atmosphere remained pleasantly chilling, mystery was intriguing and puzzles honestly require you to think a bit and manipualte the world around you. Overall, maybe 4/10. Wouldn't spend more than $5 on it, sorry.

Very intriguing beginning with a really cool mystery story that gets more and more interesting the more you play it. However, became frustrating near the end with having to check and recheck and triple check EVERYTHING in your inventory to make sure you didn't miss anything. With a somewhat weak, convoluted and dissatisfying ending. It's a shame because it could have been an awesome game and would've earned a solid thumbs up from me if not for the ending and the frustration that went beyond just 'difficult to figure out.' Nigh unfinishable without a guide.

Recommended with some caveats: the game is an often tense, but not horrific, atmospheric experience that is unfortunately marred by some very obtuse puzzles. Certain parts of the game's story won't progress until you do something specific, and it's not always clear what you're supposed to do. In one case you simply have to use the telephone, but there's nothing telling you that.

It's a point and click in the old-school Myst style, where you move through largely static environments and uncover the story gradually while working through puzzles. The old house is spooky and beautifully detailed, and has held up pretty well graphically consdering the age of the game. It can still offer an engrossing old school point and click experience, but it comes with the downsides of old school obtuse adventure game logic. Be prepared to look up some of the puzzles and don't expect a lot of horror and you should enjoy this.

Meh. Good atmosphere, potentially impossible to figure out what to do at certain points without the help of a guide. Somewhat outdated. Good story. Bonus points for thalidomide. 6/10 since it was only $2 on steam.

Just beat the game and wow, it was incredible. I loved the story, the music, the environment and the atmosphere it creates, I started to feel very uneasy since the second day on and I loved how the story slowly unfolds and how all the pieces slowly fit together. My only complaint is how cryptic it is to keep advancing with the plot, you are supposed to use certain items on certain objects in a way that wouldn't cross your mind and wouldn't make any sense. Had to use a walkthrough but it was well worth it.

I would like to recommend this game; from what I've read from other reviews, it sounds like a pretty good story. However, the game is completely unplayable. The moment I enter the mansion, which occurs within the first minute of the game, the screen goes pitch black, and the only way to see anything is to open the inventory, which gives a brief glimpse of the background. Checking the forums shows that many others have had this same problem, but there is no gaurenteed fix. Since there is no way to determine if you will have this problem when playing, and since there seems to be no way to get around it if it does happen to you, I can't advise anyone to spend their money on such a horribly broken game. The fact that Steam is still selling this product in its current condition is an insult to their customers.

Like playing through a horror novel, this game is absolute bliss for point and click fans.
