Stories Untold is a lot of thing. It's part horror, part sci-fi, part drama... It really doesn't try to fit into a mold. But what stood out to me the most was its clever use of the text-based adventure style. It's not something you see often in games nowadays, though Event did it quite well too. It tries to integrate text-based story telling into a more modern looking game, mostly by having you look at monitors but still give you the feeling that you're not just playing a text-based game by letting you move the camera and interact with certain objects. It feels like a blast from the past with a fresh coat of paint As far the actual story goes, Stories Untold consist of three seemingly disconnected short stories which are cleverly tied together in the last one. Each story has a very different feel but they always keep you on edge, without having to result to usual horror tropes such as jump scare. The dialogue is well written and acted out and the sound/music really help set the atmosphere as well All in all, I really loved this game, I'd recommend it to anyone looking for something a little different
Stories Untold is a kind of experimental title. Most of the story is presented in a text form so expect a lot of reading. Nowadays it's something that is unique as text adventure are almost extinct. Price is fair for what we get so if you want to experience something new give this one a go.
Stories Untold is a thriller game of horror and mystery, the game has four episodes or stories including as pilot chapter a remastering of "The Abandon House", according to the developers ensured a great shock to the players for each episode played but in particular not Scares nothing, but the mystery if kept. Is a good game but it is nothing out of the world and does not bring anything new to the genre.
