"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).
A game has never stuck with me quite like Lumber Island. The first night after I played it, I had a dream about the axe man coming at me. Now, after many months I finally got the privilege of playing episode 2... The bear. He teleports around, following along with my journey. But still I do not know his real motives. I can't wait to find out what happens in episode 3.

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…
