It's a scary game but the ending blows.

ProgressivegamesDLE responds:

We're glad you think it's scary. Not everyone likes the ending - what would make it better for you?


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Great photography and editing, it gives the perfect atmosphere to this kind of game. The playability is smooth and easy, but I found it hard to navigate through the pictures, which all seam the same. But maybe a maze feel is what you were aiming for? I found the scares to be pretty cheap, no build up, just shock. Good game, but would be a better experience with a well thought story / plot and easier navigation.

Thanks for your response. :) Since this is a beta game, testing elements that we want to use in future products, your opinion really helps. The maze feeling is on purpose, that feeling you get when you're lost in a big haunted house is part of the spookiness we were going for. ;)
As for scares - did you look out the window on your way up one of the stairwells?

Spooky. What's the song sung over & over? It's familiar but I can't quite remember, like an old lullaby.

UGH! I hate this kinda crap! Nothing but jump scares! Nothing to creep me out or tell a story while I look for the marbles. (seriously marbles?) and a time limit, that's probably the worst thing to have in a game in my opinion. Horror is about isolation and the feeling of being alone (which was done pretty good) but also includes subtlety. Make a person paranoid, but not by making them nervous to click on a scene to see what jumps at them. Rather, something more that reveals a place that just seems... normal. Example, Silent Hill 3 you enter a room and there is a giant mirror. Ok, whatever. You try to go out the door you used to come in. Ok, that's weird. Suddenly you see your own reflection dripping in blood and laughing hysterically. Ok, now it's just getting creepy. But now the room starts to fill up with blood as the more the mirror 'you' bleeds and seeps out of pieces of the broken glass. AGH! GET ME THE HELL OUT OF HERE!!
Like Yahtzee has said in the past, this game is the "jump out of the closet and go abloogy woogy woo" type. It made me jump, yes. But I get irritated rather than scared. I found myself growing more and more frustrated over time before I just didn't care enough.

HOWEVER the graphic design is great. A lot of potential. Just don't waste it on jump scares, it's the cheapest kind of scare of all scares.

Hey, Spongeman25.
Thanks for the detailed response. We're glad you appreciate the graphic design. And we really do appreciate your feedback concerning ambience. It's great for us to find out what types of scares people really enjoy. Can't give too much away, but you'll find our upcoming products moving more and more in the direction of the kind of atmosphere you're looking for... :)
