Ratings and Reviews
A nice little game in the creepy style that Glitch Games has made their own. A lot of work has obviously gone into the imagery and the music and the gameplay and the scares. The "inventory wheel" works quite well (except that it would be good to be able to control the rotation of the object displayed in the middle). My only negative criticisms are that the gameplay is quite short (markedly shorter than A Short Game) and the ending is a bit rushed, directorially speaking. Navigation is occasionally a little disorientating. There are a few scenes that are richly rendered but turn out to have only one thing you can do in them. And... the piano scale is incorrect (A to C should be a minor third, not a major third). All that said: a lot of work has gone into this and I enjoyed every minute of it.
Got stuck a lot....
Ok I got stuck at the first game. Spoilers: there is a book that gives you hints but leads you to a flash drive that is blank. Ok all you needed to do is have a message on it like look for 4 letters and oh by the way they are not in the right order....THIS is the key. Then I would be like oh I get it, I can move on. But if you never catch on, you are stuck. Not everything was clear what clue went with what game. When it did, sometimes you didn’t know the order, then you were stuck again. I had a recording and a piano and didn’t know which Key was which. Looked at the top picture and still nothing. Then there was a missing key, do I need that to complete it first? No, but I’m stuck again. Then it was like ok I got 2 keys on the right, 3 on the left. Do I really need to just guess? Come on. When you get stuck there is no other room to go to. Then, you don’t know if you are focusing on the right rooms. I gave it 3 stars because I played a free glitch game and loved it. The one I paid for just frustrated me.
Some puzzles with need of improvement
I enjoyed the game with challenging puzzles except the audio recording which gives the answer to the piano puzzle. The issue is that I am deaf and cannot hear the sounds. I had to look it up in the walkthrough to solve the puzzle. This audio recording needs to be added with subtitles.
Also, the trumpet puzzle (for pinball machine) is not clear on which buttons were tapped so I wasn’t sure how to decipher the patterns. It could be that the way the buttons is tapped too fast or randomly so it was difficult to follow the order of the patterns I need to press to match the patterns in the pinball machine. I had to look it up in the walkthrough to solve the puzzle.
Overall, I give this rating 3 stars. This game contains good puzzles, but some puzzles needs improvement to make it clear and understandable.
