"This is a fun game that will keep you on your toes and get your heart and adrenalin pumping. This is a game that everyone should try." - 9.2/10 - WatchTower Gaming
"Like a surreal and low budget horror film discovered on an obscure television channel during a night that has lasted too long, it’s jarring, hugely imperfect and strangely alarming. I’ve happily lost myself in it for two evenings now." - Rock, Paper, Shotgun
"The overall design speaks not just to its retro-ish style but also its place among recent horror games. Depths of Fear: Knossos is a fairly small game in scope, simple and focused in a way that big budget, kitchen sink AAA titles are not, and to a large degree that is a relief." - 7/10 - Bloody Disgusting
