"Lumber Island - That Special Place" is a psychedelic first-person horror adventure. - The plot doesn't lead you by the hand, only self-contained exploration reveals obscure history of this place and its secrets. - Atmosphere is the most important aspect - you'll see no buttons on your screen; there is no inventory in the game, which provides maximum immersion aided by music, sounds and Oculus Rift (in future).

1) The game had a really well made up atmosphere at first. Ambience was really scary and well made. Surrounding area was really well made as well, topping off the horror feeling while playing the game.
2) While at first the atmosphere was perfect, it faded out later on. That lumberjack was on your feet non stop, and you could always know where he is. I'll tell you why Slender is scary (just an example, you can change the Slender name to almost any good horror game). It's scary, because you don't know where the enemy is, but you know it is somewhere. It can pop up any second and scare you alot. In this game you knew that he is after you, that was a downhill. If you made him stop following you after like 15-30 seconds of chasing (also make him slightly faster, since you can easily outrun him right now), it would be much creepier in my opinion.
3) Lack of objective - that was probably the worst thing in this game. I spent one hour and a half walking around doing absolutely NOTHING... I gave him the boots, and then nothing. You have no idea what to do, you have no idea where to go, you have no idea why are you there in the first place. There is no story, no objective and... that's just ultra frustrating.

it didn't scare me much
(although i quit the game after finally seeing the "monster madman")
the graphics is great,
the environment is good as well as the ambience too
great job on there
controls are only the basics (not even an inventory?!)
some details i don't understand if they're even useful in the game like putting the teddy bear back in the chair?
i don't even get that
i downloaded the game because the trailer was nicely done with all the music and all but the sound isn't that much scary
i've also read that the BIG guy could only WALK. wow, maybe, if i didn't quit the game i might as well know how BIG of a loser he is -_-
overall, it's a game really worth playing and can be a great scare
specially the "monster madman's" sound effects
