One of a few horror game apps that I’ve found. I love the pixelated graphics. Hope to see more like this.

Fun puzzle-solving, deliciously grizzly, good story

This game is definitely worth the small handful of Loonies it costs. The story is fun to follow along and kept me engaged. Nothing groundbreaking—just a solid horror romp. The puzzles are not so hard that frustration gets in the way, but are still challenging enough to to be worth the effort. The character designs and overall aesthetic fit perfectly with the story. If I have any complaints, dodging the creature gets a bit tedious, but it’s a minor gripe and eventually you’ll learn strategies that work (Holly’s face when she gets caught is pretty great, though!). The app is cheap, so just buy it and enjoy a few fun evenings with headphones on in the dark. If it ain’t your jam, you’ve only lost the price of a cup of coffee. Me? I wore a stupid grin from the opening scene to the final (great) epilogue. Thanks!

Great visuals but story left me wanting more

I downloaded this game on a whim since pixel art and horror stories are both my jam. In regards to visuals, I was not disappointed. The lighting and environment are beautiful and wonderfully detailed despite the pixelated style. The “closer examination” artwork is also nicely stylized without detracting from the ominous atmosphere.

My only issue, which is a rather large one for me, was with the story itself. Obviously I don’t want to spoil anything, but there were aspects about the plot that just didn’t seem to make sense in the light of the final conclusion, and overall it felt pretty lackluster and uninspired. There was nothing shocking or surprising and by the end of it I felt like I had had so many clues as to the conclusion that I was just ready for it to be over.

Overall, this wasn’t a bad game, but at the end of it I wasn’t exactly happy for having spent money on it either.
