[REC] Shutter is a horror game where you must progress through levels while avoiding the paranormal and solving puzzles. The story will progress as the player goes through the levels. This Game will not only focus on his recordings but even on his story and his life. You take the role of a reporter named Connor, which will be reporting Penny hill a dark hunted asylum. You will be equipped with the latest equipment; animated camera which includes night vision and a shutter effect. Filming every action you take and taking screenshot's of paranormal activity. Game will include feature's like fear, stealth, investigation and much much more.


Health System: The player has a low amount of health, and will die after around 4 hits from an enemy. The player's health will be monitored by the cracks on the camera screen. This means you're camera is damaged and you need to fix it, To Fix it in some levels you will find a Repair box, Use this to fix you're camera cracks. Camera cracks will only disappear when You fix it via an toolbox. If the player dies, he will drop to the ground and the screen will fade to black. The game will then automatically load the last saved game.

Panic System: If something paranormal happens, the player's panic level will increase. Staring at enemies will also cause the panic level to increase. A higher panic level means the player becomes harder to control due to Fear. The player will also occasionally shake when panic levels are high. Fear decrease when a safe area is reached.Also Pills can be taken to decrease panic level.

Inventory System: The player has an inventory to store items such as health packs, Pill, and keys. This means the player can use the items when they choose, rather than forcing them to use them at a specific time.

Movement System: The player will slowly walk and can sprint a little quickly. This means walking is slow enough to easily investigate, and sprinting is fast enough to escape enemies. Stamina will be unlimited.

Camera System: Pressing F will activate Night Vision to make it easier for the player to see in dark areas. Press the right mouse button will make the camera take a picture - sound plays and white HUD fades out. An objective could be to take photos of items.

Save/Load System: Auto save zones will automatically save the game when the player enters them. Resuming game in the menu will automatically load the last auto save.

Investigate System: clicking the mouse button means the player investigates the item. clicking again causes the item to be picked up.

Stealth System: Pressing V will activate stealth system, where the players see where is darker hide from The paranormal.

Zooming System: Pressing R to zoom in and T to zoom out. This will help you check for objects and see things more clearly before going in the way!

Okey so... I don't know if you watched my Let's Play on Baby Blues (I'm the guy who broke his chair due to a jumpscare), and I had my eyes on this game for quite some time now. I saw [REC] Shutter like two-three weeks ago, and I was like 'No chance I'm playing that, it looks way too creepy'. Today, I saw it once again, and I was like 'Okey it might not be so bad, gonna give it a try'. Then while reading a comment, I realised you are the same guy who made Baby Blues, which totally made me not play this game :D However, I had it downloaded already, so I decided to let's play this one as well... Here is the let's play : Youtube.com
Check it out if you are interested.
You, Kumi, make maybe the SCARIEST games I have ever played. While playing baby blues and now [rec]shutter, throughout the whole playthroughs I felt like my heart will explode, that atmosphere is like INTENSE! You are like the best game developer I've seen (considering you work alone, for which I'm not quite sure).
I don't even think this game needs a review, but here I go.
As I said, the atmosphere was intense, but not just that. Even after a jumpscare, which is a place that has to break the atmosphere, it still remained the same - scary as hell. I have no idea how you do it, if it's because of the sounds or anything, but you succeed somehow. *SPOILERS* when that TV jumpscare happened, I literally facerolled the keyboard, I first jumped on the side then started clicking all button like a madman, trying to pause the game... Sounds are flawless as well. The game is a little way too dark, but I believe that cannot be considered a minus - after all it's a horror game :D Rating would go 10/10 - amazing.
Hope you enjoy the little let's play I made, if you are even still interested in watching those (cuz I guess alot of people LPed your games).

[P.S. You still owe me like 10 dollars to buy a new chair, after I broke it on Baby Blues :D]

Highest Rated (4 agree) 10/10

This game is beautiful, Though the 'walking' seems slowish, it fits perfectly in with the over all world and atmosphere of the game. I honestly cannot complain because the speed is perfect. I'm sure if anyone of us were to go to a asylum that was spooky we would all walk slow. Honestly this man has balls becuase I would sit in a corner for 10 minutes if somethingwas chasing me and leave. So the walking is perfect for those who are complaining about it becuase it fits how a actually person would…

Lowest Rated (3 agree) 1/10

*Random frequent tv static with loud audio (makes no sense on a camera during recording). The very beginning starts you in a room you can't quite see and no determinable direction how to begin. *Ridiculously slow movement with no run option. Since you can't fight back, you can't even run away when attacked. *There is little in the way of exploration. Linear and far too dark. *No gamma setting. No torch. Just a lot of black corners and corridors. *No control options. Not even a place to see what…
