Set in a creepy amusement park hiding a dark and sinister secret, The Park is a one to two hour long first-person psychological horror experience focusing on exploration and storytelling.
A day at the park... a lost teddy bear... a missing child. As the sun sets over Atlantic Island Park, you must explore its dilapidated rides in search of your son, Callum. As darkness falls, you will experience panic and paranoia through a narrative written by a team of award winning storytellers.
Amusement parks are happy places, filled with the joys of childhood and the exhilarating rush of fantastic rides to be dared. That was the vision of eccentric business man Nathaniel Winter when he opened the doors to Atlantic Island Park in 1977.
Unfortunately, the park's history turned out to be one plagued by tragedy and drama. Its freak accidents, grotesque killings and ghostly hauntings have inspired many a sensational headline, and locals worry the park is far from done claiming innocent lives. For Lorraine, it's where her worst nightmare began.

Explore Atlantic Island Park and step onto rides such as the Ferris Wheel, the Bumper Cars and the Rollercoaster; just beware, some of them have a life of their own
Enter the mind of Lorraine, a woman facing every parent's worst nightmare, and unravel her story as well as the dark and tragic history of the park
Call out for Callum to respond, and interact with the environment around you while examining clues and listening to Lorraine's own inner voice as the game progresses
State of the art graphics and audio deliver a uniquely atmospheric setting rich in mood and mystery, developed by a team of award-winning AAA developers

The Park, like many other games in horror genre, has a "story-based walking simulator" title, There is no specific gameplay complication in your game that you want to get involved in. Just forget about combat and solve the puzzles, only you are here and looking for your missing child in an empty park without any trap. Unlike most walking simulators, you can not even get lost! Because the park is relatively small and your path inside it is almost specified, I can say that playing the Park is like watching a movie, there is no real and profound threat that threatens you. The game story is very short and you can finish it in about 2 hours, also the game doesn't have any Replay Value. But if you are a fan of horror games, play The Park and enjoy it.
Well what do we have here then? This is a pretty freaky game but not too scary, and i believe it has something to do with The Secret World, but as i havnt played that game i really cant comment on anything related. But as an outsider you might say, i actually enjoyed playing this game from the start. Theres not a great deal to it gameplay wise, you cant pick up things, shoot or anything like that not even jump, but the idea of the game is based solely on the story, you basically take a tour around the park and try to piece together whats actually going on, its all about following the story. As you make your way around, things happen with the odd jump scare and it really gives you that creepy sense like someone is watching you all the time, but i will say it looks really good, the graphics are clean and everything fits in well with the environment and the image there trying to put across. At first i thought this was going to be like The Stanley Parable, but unfortunately not, from a negative point of view the only things that let the game down is the lack of exploration or puzzles invloved, and the fact its a very short game, i think upto 2hrs, i would have liked to have seen more but thats really the only gripes i have against it. Overall the story is very interesting and still makes you scratch your head at the end, well worth trying out even if it is short, if you can grab it cheap then go for it, theres no replayability so prolly not worth the full price, but still give it a go if this sounds like your type of game and im pretty sure you will enjoy it.
This game is short. However, it is really engaging and adds so much story to The Secret World and vice versa. It's not super scary, more freaky than anything. But it was a good story and i love these TSW mini games.
Starts off with you thinking its a horror/paranormal thriller. The backdrop of the spooky carnival has been done before, but I feel that they executed it better than most in this game. Perfect atmosphere with all the carnival essentials. I found it to be very immersive at times. The story gets darker and darker as you progress. I'm not sure I'd pay full price for it due to the linear story and the time it took to beat being shorter than I expected, but definitely worth picking up if you find it on sale. Leaves you feeling sorry for the characters and questioning a lot of things.
One of those walking simulators. Actually, not even that, since the only thing you will do most of the time is riding attractions like the big wheel or the rollercoaster. You just sit there and see the scripted events the park has for you for an hour or so. 5 attractions if my memory serves me well. The walk between them is filled with monologues that give you hints on what had happened with your main character and his soon. Once you've ridden all the attractions you will get to the next "ending level" where everything goes better, giving you the feeling that you are playing one episode from the excellent game Layers of Fear. That last level is what saves this game, and the only reason you should play this. You will end up with lots of thoughts and ideas about the story but also a lot of doubts. Story is good and kind of different, and is the only scary thing you will probably encounter in the game.
