Firstly, it is so nice to see when a game concept becomes reality and comes out fully fleshed , having played previous beta i was thrilled when DespawnGames reached out to me to review it once more.

 Honestly i am super impressed by the little things that changed such as the lighting , the changes in atmospheric sounds, increased detailing of the environments, the surprise jumpscares and also giving some of the monsters a cut scene to introduce them to the game.

 The first level itself felt the same with where certain items were ,  i was hoping they would be in random locations but this is not an issue as it brings some familiarity from the beta. One of the main things that got my attention right away is the atmosphere is on point and is very disturbing and terrifying! The monster on the second level really caught me off guard and straight away you feel the pressure and run in a flustered panic.

Overall this is an amazing game and is genuinely creepy, scary and above all fun to play! You will not be dissapointed!

Thank you for the kind words and the amazing video! We're very happy that you liked it!

Hello Gravv!!

We're very happy that you like it! Very good gameplay!

We released a new version of the game in which we rebalanced the difficulty, especially for the first level. You should try it out with it again!

Hello Kain!

That was a pretty good gameplay overall! It also serves us as a great feedback source, so thank you for the video!

Enemies right now are a bit overtuned, and we're planning to release a new version during next week, among other things.

Stay tuned!

Hello jimjim2333,

That's a very big possibility, but we'd like to fix any issues currently existing within the game before bringing up the Steam topic to the table.

Thank you so much for the kind words!

I was playing during 4 hours and it still me impressing how well is made the whole game!

The atmosphere of the game makes you to stay scaried and alert all the time.  The in game mechanics works so nice, and the monsters are so scary when they´re following and behind you and you enter in a no exit room..

I highly recommend to play this game during the night with the lights off and with headphones, keep close your phone to call 911 if you have any heart attack cause this game is really fxcking good.


My rating to this game:

9.5/10


PD: Some feedback for developers, from a developer sight.

  • The tutorial is a little bit mixed with the game screen, then sometimes you cannot read properly some important information.
  • It will be nice to add the options settings at the starting screen to adjust some properties before start to play (And add some graphics adjustments for low quality computers)
  • Some props scale not properly adjusted to the reality from the user scale, like the fire extinguishers.
  • The First Aid Boxes doesn´t response sometimes to the call of "E" Interaction, and some of them could make you stacked forcing you to restart the game to leave from there.
  • While you´re reading a note and press the escape buttom to pause the game, you cannot see the mouse cursor.
  • Some doors are not filling properly all the space of the wall, so you can still seeing through a little line.
  • That´s all! Take all this tips positively and keep up with the good work!
