Mod Review on Aug 30th, 2014 - 1 person agrees

I was truly enjoying first this mod, but after a while I was getting depressed, bored lack of exciting gameplay, maps are fine and nicely done, but missing a lot of detail like in the hub, cellar, sewer is just really long hallways with bland design. Dungeon sections in some places there are really empty and dark as hell, puzzles are pretty frustrating and too challenging in some points. I understand there must be "not too easy" ones, but many of them are pretty hard and what I see from other comments they don't like it because it's "Too hard and boring, It has to be in my opinion a lot of fun when it's challenging.

I mean all the maps are designed nicely, but many ones are WAY too big with long hallways and then I see the lack of effort here, which was disappointing. Well there are good points too, atmosphere some of the places, complicated and nice puzzles, but lacks effort here too.. usual.

Overall, it was nice experince, but I think you rushed way too many maps like "putting more effort with detailing" and lazy design some places, because couple of maps "boxlights are directed wrong and then I seened many places flickering walls, textures" not saying this is bad thing. It's just you have to improve a lot from designing and make it more interesting and reduce size of the maps, my gameplay ruined many times, because I wondered everywhere too many times, with no sign of finding almost everything. Storytelling is really good and well written.

Pos:

- Long
- Puzzles
- Atmosphere at times
- Story

Neg:

- Hard puzzles and really hard to find any clues at times
- Not that scary
- Dark places, really small amount of oil
- Too confusing and hard to progress at times
- Lack of detailing
- Big size maps

Not bad, but not that good either. Need's a lot improvement, still!

Good, but frustrating at times - 6/10

This is actually my first Indie horror review, so I try to keep it short for now.

Damn, this game get's me everytime!

I only have passed two nights and I'm hooked, problem is I just can't play this at night, simple reason is: I can't! It's that damn horrifying and scares the s**t out of me every time now I play it!

I wanna applause to the creator, he maanaged to make a really truly small horror-gem which is really unique, never-seen this kind of horror before.

At first I was like "Lol, there are just toys", but at night there are scary as fu*k, I can't explain how I feel when there are closing, the tension is just genius, when you are getting paranoid and just nervous all the time! And the worst moments is when the time comes and BAM you are dead. This is the genius point of this game. Bravo, creator!

One of the heart-pounding games I ever played, literally scariest out there.

Play more and scarier and paranoia this game gets - 10/10

Truly enjoyable mod.

First I liked the design, Dark cell areas, dungeons with twisted puzzles, events and storytelling, really atmospheric and overall really well maded.

Puzzles were the strongest point in this story, really good and refreshing. Atmosphere was spot-on and didn't disappoint one bit.

Everything works and I was thrilled playing forward and forward, only one thing is puzzles are pretty easy and progressing is not that challenging at all. Scares are good, but sometimes little predictable and cliche.

Overall really good mod with something new, but design goes that normal and ordinary way, what disappoints a little bit. There's nothing unique or that amazing / new, never seened before stuff what I expected too.

Still really enjoyable mod with good twists and map design and lastly well made deep storytelling.

Decent with deep storytelling - 8/10

Well that was nicely done, but whole design is some times repetitive, not that great and just playing awhile I got bored easily, still managed to finish it with great feeling in the end.

Atmoshere was okay, but not that scary and some monster encounters are really easy to avoid.. there are many poofers which kills sometimes player's fear.

I wanted more unique stuff like new scares or custom content whatsoever, because these days, everything is almost "repetitive using assets, items, scares" it's just old now and I want to play and experience something new, next time make something never-seened stuff before releasing story. (this is just a suggestion.)

However this story contains really interesting puzzle-elements and challenging too, I mean someones are when exploring levels quite easy but after entering "Basement" things get really interesting and challenging, gameplay was good and final levels were really interesting to play and boss fight was really nicely made too.

Overall really well effort story, but lacks sometimes detailing and repetitive design.

Good, but nothing that unique to play - 6/10

Well.. Finished it finally, but not that way, what I wanted to finish it.

Well.. let's start with beginning I really don't know about those "Frame dropping maps" where this is coming from, but many map lagged so much, I was getting frustrated sometimes so much and that ruined my experience a little bit. Maps were good, really detailed ones, scary ones, cool chases, interesting puzzles, but why I can't give any higher than seven, were the bugs.

Disappointing things:

I noticed when exploring stuff, many areas are damn dark, even my lantern sometimes didn't find everything.
I wasn't always sure where to go example. Waking up that house there were many puzzles were, I really have to think, next areas I was completely lost with altar rooms, but later on where I really faced my progressing problems was that "Maze" and another maze with more confusing design. Sometimes it was just annoying to play and ruined my experience with gameplay and tension.

Why adding "Death System" it's so useless because I can easily just "Save and Exit" and just start here again if I die. I really appreciate Idea building one, but sometimes even if I die I get the "random crash" and I have to still start everything over and sometimes "Death system / checkpoint system didn't work, because when I go though that level door, suddenly I appear somewhere else and when I appear somewhere some doors are unlocked example. at that Storage tunnels where I can't progress because you didn't restart events when I died. Really easy to forget and now I see why there is many flaws and problems, because there are so many things and complicated stuff in this mod.

Pos:

- Custom Music
- Long gameplay
- Story
- Puzzles
- Scares
- Boss Fight

Neg:

- Confusing at times
- Flickering textures, many bugs
- Lacking design sometimes (not all the maps)
- Random crashing
- Death System (useless)

Overall it was succesful and decent mod to play.

7/10 - Decent and long

I liked it a lot, nice design you got there, but something is missing.. more gameplay, complicated puzzles and more scares, not just monsters.

Atmosphere was good, but puzzles weren't that challenging, in my opinion too easy to know what to do. Music was sometimes different and refreshing and I really enjoy progressing through this levels, but overall I wasn't scared at all. Still really good effort on the mod, but I expected much, much more. Story was okay, but missing something too. Ending was little disappointing, I expected more.

You did good, it was enjoyable! But it could be even better with long gameplay and more interesting places.

7/10 - Average but enjoyable little mod to play

Well that was short and really bland.

I didn't like it one bit, it was just lazy level designing, rushed scares with pitch black darkness areas, I was bored when playing it, just searching keys and some items to proceed door to door, nothing new.

Overall you can do better and don't ever rush with maps, it was so short and really bland and really poor designing with everything, even voices are so low to hear and there is no story.

Pos:

- You can actually make something
- Voice acting

Neg:

- Bland design
- Rushed scares
- Nothing special, repetitive stuff
- Empty areas, really boring gameplay
- No story

Sorry, you have to use more time when making story or mod, this is just laziness at best.

Bad and Bland - 2/10

This was one of the greatest storytelling's I guarantee that myself.

What a triumph! I really liked how you turned many moments, really atmospheric, terrific and just really trembling ones.

Nightmare parts were easily my favourite and scariest moments to play.
Map design was really good, but sometimes I felt you rushed some of the things, because many rooms is really less detailed and missing a lot decoration, added furnitures and just extreme detail parts. Little disappoint in that, but all in all really decent mod to play.

Pos:

- Music, spooky outdoor sounds
- Monster encounters
- Map design, atmospheric tension
- Story, unique
- Decent lenght

Neg:

- Bland design sometimes
- Couple annyoing scares, like poofers
- Repetitive puzzles at times

Overall sequel was great, well designed.. most of the gameplay is really well executed, but could be even better with more time in hands.

Well made sequel, enjoyable - 8/10

Well this was really decent and really good one. Lots of effort put on the map designing, atmosphere and overall really well made.

Strongest points was that creepy atmosphere and you really put effort on level design, I saw how extremely detailed some places was and just bring that feel this is really entertaning and scary mod to play.

Well I was scared couple times, really! Those scares and only couple monster encounters keep me interest playing this one.

Only negative thing it was too short in my taste, my gameplay lasts only 45-60 minutes max.

Really nice work man! It deserves easily by the design and creepy atmosphere solid 8!

Good and really atmospheric - 8/10

Aas Kaernk said, it wasn't masterpiece or perfect mod, but still fairly good, which I enjoyed pretty much.

Creepy atmosphere and there is some parts were you really focused on the detailing, making atmospheric maps, but still something is missing a lot, whole intense action-sequences where we really need to run a lot, because that "Shadow chase was pretty poorly made" and I didn't have to hurry at all, that was cheesy and kind of disappointing. Some enemy encounters were unpredictable and not fun just more annoying to avoid.

Overall it was good, story make sense sometimes and sometimes just not, ending was really quick and confusing and quirky.

Positives:

- Sometimes creepy and entertaning
- Details
- Atmosphere
- Good puzzles

Negatives:

- Some chases were cheesy
- Unneccesary monster encounters
- Confusing and two pretty bad choices to end the mod
- Originality missing

Don't get me wrong, it was fun, but you still can improve much more from this, but if this is your first, it was really enjoyable and entertaining to play, nothing so much unique stuff, just basic, but really well made mod.

Fairly good and enjoyable - 7/10
