A first-person horror game where suspense, psychological horror and immersion in the history of the game are a target. Inspired in several feature Japanese, Korean and Spanish movies , so the psychological horror is a main key.
If you are looking for a new creative game that offers a horrifying experience, you've found it. Although it is quite short, it took me quite some time to get through because it was so scary! The thin hallways and the screaming of the monsters are just a few examples of how this game uses psychological factors to pull you into the depths of fear. That, combined with a few well timed jump scares and monsters, will leave you trembling in fear tonight. Download it now!
The only complaints:
-There were some spots on the stairs that I kept getting stuck on.
-When I loaded a save game I would fall out of the arena. It was when I went in the basement/cellar area.
Thank you for the mac build(:
This game definitely will have you on the edge of your seat. The atmosphere is spot on and perfect for scaring yourself. Although it may be a little difficult to find out where to go next, that gives the game the perfect opportunity to lull you into a false sense of security and terrify you when you least expect it.
I definitely recommend giving this game a playthrough at least twice to explore the entire area and find the *SPOILER* two endings.
One of the best uses of lightning I've seen, everything about this game makes you feel paranoid. Like your being watched, what doesn't help is the hints at something sinister happening but a large part of the beginning is basically some subtle sounds that get you nerves on edge. It can establish tension wonderfully I hope that the scares and story can match it.
The sounds were very well done. A horror game is nothing without the rights sounds or music. It wasn't too scary which is good. I only got scared and screamed once (you can see it in my playthrough of the game). The Unity engine is perfect for a horror game. The graphics don't need to be too good, but they aren't bad in any meaning of the word. I enjoyed the encouraged adventuring and exploring. However, the game should take an hour to play it through complete, but it could take 2 hours because you need to find out where to go next. I would have liked a hint at where you need to go next instead of just making the player extensively search. All the while, the destination is in a place you have already visited! (I'm talking about entering the sewers). I loved that there was an actual attempt at a story. Most indie horror games only focus on frightening the player instead of immersing them. The story has potential it has not yet reached! I hope to see it expanded in a sequel! Overall, i find Ildefonse to be a blood-tingling, thought provoking, and daunting, horror game with emphasis on adventure.
I found that this game managed to live up to my expectations, I did see the things that I wanted to see from it when I clicked on that *track* button. [SPOILERS AHEAD!] The jumpscare where that girl jumps on you is purely awesome, not only for the graphical part, but is also good because it was KIND-OF unpredictable. Of course you will think about the posibility she will start chasing you, or you will faint again, but never that she can jump on you since I didn't see her doing that before. The end of the game kinda dissapointed me, since I expected some more epic ending for such a masterpiece, but I suppose it was OK. In my opinion you shouldn't have even introduced that guy (the second enemy) in the game, the girl is much more creepier. If you did it like that :
'You are on the ceiling finding a pistol, and you hear her scream again, coming to you' then it would be totally more epic in my opinion. Also, this game I THINK was inspired by that horror comic that is on the internet, don't really remember the name, that you think you are only reading it and then it starts moving (again, cannot remember the name of the story). The girl's model is 99% similar to the one I'm talking about. In my opinion, graphics were astonishing, as I said before. The FPS is good for those graphics, and the game itself is creepy, but the ending dissapointed me a little. 9/10, hoping to see more games like that :) I say a little more in the episode, just my fingers are getting lazy, so if you want to hear what else I have in mind just go to the last 3 minutes of the video :) Regards,
Ildefonse has a very good sense atmosphere and place. Its very claustrophobic tight corridors, dark environments, nice presentation and the interesting story set-up make this a good horror game.
Unfortunately, there are somethings that detach from the experience...
The camera effect that simulates real human movement and the presence of the character's body in the screen being this in First Person brings something nice to the table. While this realistic behavior of the body creates credibility, it also can became quite annoying when sprinting, especially in the maze sewer level. The sprinting can only be done in certain areas. While interesting, this would make more sense if all the large areas were sprint-able, which is not the case.
Besides this and some other smaller issues, Ildefonse can be a truly creepy game.
