A bit of a 'meh' game, really. If Steam had the option for a middle spot between recommend and don't recommend, I'd choose it. It had its moments, some of the puzzles were good and much of the story was okay as well, but nothing really shone. Some confusing UI. Some horrible voice acting (and some okay). Some cheesy horror aspects. No ability to skip repetitive dialog or animations. Quite linear, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but there are some obtuse prerequisites to move the story along at times. For instance, you're in a room, do everything you can...and move on. Explore some other area, do all you can...then get stuck. Well if you then go back to the first area, something will have changed for some reason...triggered by something else you did but for no apparent reason.
But overall, it just didn't grip me enough to make me want to work through things...or I would just assume something illogical was going on even if in the end it just might have just taken a little more scrutiny...but time I didn't feel like spending on it.
In the end, it was good enough that I at least was willing to finish it. I got it on a 75% Steam sale, so I can't complain. If you like horror/spooky and maybe have an interest in the occult, it might grip you more than it did me and you can overlook some of its flaws.
