Obvious Friday the 13th reference on top of this site aside, this game is actually pretty solid horror game. While graphics or sound are nothing amazing, it is pretty solid for a small indie game. Atmosphere in this game is actually great and you feel tension all the time. Writing for this kind of game is also interesting. Gameplay itself is also pretty good, you can fight enemies without issues and it's easy to sink in the world this game created. Only downside to this game is it's length, you can finish it in around 2 or 3 hours. Might not be worth it at full price, but on discount it is absolutely worth a try!
Roots of Insanity is an intense horror game, made by independent developer. It's very well crafted and while exploring certain stages it can give player the chills. While animation may be lacking at certain moments it's not that distracting though it's worth to mention that fact. If you're looking for game with good narrative that can make you uneasy try it out! Solid indie title!
