Into the Gloom is a budget horror game and while in most of the cases game for that price belongs to the rubbish bin this one is actually pretty entertaining. It comes with a decent story and original art style. Overall it's a really well coded game just be aware of the jump scares that are somewhat mandatory in games from horror genre.
Into the Gloom (so far, an early access title) is an enjoyable indie horror game. Its pixel graphic aspect is pleasant and frightening and creates the right, dark atmosphere. In Into the Gloom you will feel real terror, because you will really have the sensation you're being hunted. The game's puzzles aren't too difficult to solve but need always your thinking skills and offer you a medium level of challenge. So, into the Gloom can be very scary and, at some points, the puzzles can be very interesting. The story is well constructed and you will surely want to go on and see how it ends. I really hope the game gets updated really soon with new, intriguing contents, because I want more of it. Plus, Into the Gloom is really cheap, so don't waste time and buy it as soon as possible!
