The full playthrough is now complete, and what can i say, what a fantastic game! The story starts off slow as you investigate an abandoned warehouse/factory for clues about a murder or missing people (dont want to give away too much), its very quiet and eerie and it feels like there isn't much to the game, however venturing further and deeper into the warehouse/factory you find that there is alot more to this game than meets the eye, and it doesn't take long to get going. When you start to descend the stairs for the first time, that is when the game starts to show its colours, its not boring because it will keep you on edge at all times, and unlike alot of horror games this does not rely on jump scares to make you feel scared, but i will warn you this game will freak you out! Silence is the number 1 mind bender here and boy it works well, throughout the entire game you just have to brace yourself and hope to god that nothing is going to smash through the nearest door or tap you on your shoulder, its creepy. As for controls and graphics, i have to say the graphics are very clean, the game looks really good, it feels good to play smooth with no performance issues, the controls are easy and simple to use and understand so cant really fault any of that As for the story itself and the actual gameplay, well the story was great, i didn't really understand too much of it but thats just me not the game and towards the end i was completely mind boggled haha, but the gameplay could have been better, the reason for this is aside from a couple of parts theres really only 1 path you can take, your kinda funneled through the story almost, that was the only gripe i had about it, but it doesn't take away the fear factor and the enjoyment of playing this game because i still enjoyed every minute. Overall i can safely say this is an excellent horror thats great to play, and it actually exceeded expectations, i would recommend this to everyone thats into horrors, its well worth adding to your library, a great job from the devs. *thumbs up

It has all you would imagine and more in a simple horror game. That's why I recommend it to the people who enjoy horror games, I'm sure that you will enjoy it.
This is an adventure horror game made by Indie developers. The game is very polished and well made, stable and without bugs. The graphics are superb, well made and the animations are fluid. The music is very nice as well and they combine to make a really spooky atmosphere. The game's story is interesting and intriguing, which really helps to immerse you into the game. The controls are tight and easy to learn. There are a fair number of puzzles in the game, and they are clever and very much fun to solve. All in all, this is great horror game. Must-play for fans of the series. 10/10.
