Explore, Solve, Discover, Breath, Play. Sarcoex is Haunted is a free roaming, dynamic, psychological horror game. It has a creepy and mysterious atmosphere and design. The game is not full of "jump-scares", but rather play's with the player's mind; paranoia, anxiety, hopelessness, psychotic events and more. My name is Sarcoex Bloodrun I am diagnosed with schizophrenia and suffers in periods with high anxiety. When I am stressed I can see and hear things which aren't normally there, it all seems real to me, but others around hasn't seen the horrors I have seen. I just want these “monsters” to go away. My therapist have suggested I take some time for myself, take walks in the mountains or just go on vacation. I have decided to visit my fathers old work place, it is an abandoned research center in the mountains, I can't remember to name if the mountains, but I have visited the place many times. I know how to get there... Some say it's cursed, some say it's haunted... I don't know..
An immersive atmosphere, which sends shivers down my spine, I've quite enjoyed my brief foray into Sarcoex's Haunted - Beta Release. After nearly two hours running around doing not much of all however, I found myself to be quite bored. This feels like a canvas painted with some beautiful japenese-esque horror (modern, not medieval), with so much going for it, and so much room for expansion.
Definitely a game I will come back to past the beta-release to have the wits scared clear out of me.
Minor criticisms are of course the obvious: The textures are awfully low res, and movement feels... Empty. Needs some heavy lmitations placed on movement, and some ground-clutter to be cleaned up.
Lookin' pretty good for a canvas, can't wait to see what you paint!
