I wasn’t expecting the game to be long, I thought it’s an indie horror game that had a throwback look that can be done quickly.

So to my surprise the game is pretty LONG and DEEP the story is conversation driven which i like a lot.

The concept is dark but has bright spots in many occasions and yea it’s a DIFFICULT game that doesn’t cut corners the attacks has to be on point and mistakes can lead to quick death.

I just wished their was more character development across the board with more conversations.

The weapons are fine but i felt not many of them stood out at the end i felt the the ammo/hit ratio led for the same result.

Overall it was a fun experience and i would recommend everyone to give it a go it’s one of the better indie games ✌🏼

Really liked the pace of the story unfolding. And to be fair, the main character is surprisingly focused and clear headed given what happened. :)
