Reviews

“I was overhearing a man’s descent into madness, and how one woman’s feelings for him dissolved from trust to fear... It doesn’t get any less sickening, heartbreaking, or frustrating in real life, and that truth is reflected in this game.”
GameLuster

“The Other Half may draw you in with its magnetism, but be warned — once drawn close, you’re caught, and you’ll be enmeshed in a story far deeper, and far more perturbing, than you were perhaps expecting.”
Game Pilgrim

“Sometimes, a game comes out, and without much warnings, grabs you, swallows you, and spits you out like you’ve just been inside a washing-machine high speed tumbler.”

About This Game

A Demon Hunter receives a letter from Daniel, a man begging for help against a demonic infestation from the mountain that he calls home. The Hunter, in a search for him through the cold and abandoned world, will discover a twisted tale of intimacy and violence of the past, and must use that knowledge to purge the demons from the once-beautiful land.

- Hand animated 2D characters on a cold and ruined 3D world
- Methodical combat that rewards patience, precision, and knowing the enemies intimately
- A one-sitting narrative of discovering memory fragments that showcase the beauty of the past
- Fully voiced dialogues and narrations
- Optional Narrative Mode for those who don't want difficulty to affect the pacing of the story, without taking away the intensity of combat
