Hey everyone, this is Dusk Golem aka AestheticGamer. I have posted on NeoGAF since 2011, and have decided to resign. I have enjoyed posting about horror games here for years, but I no longer wish to support the site and will be leaving for good. I will still be around the internet, I go by AestheticGamer on YouTube, I make games on Steam as Yai Gameworks, and I plan to go by Dusk Golem on other forums. I'll be joining an off-set of the GAF community leaving to try other ventures like ResetEra (Official Twitter for that here: https://twitter.com/reseteraforum ). I hope some of you who read this may consider it, and I plan to try to expose more people to horror games in the years to come. Just not here.

I hope you all are having a good day, and know I always loved the community, and in the end it's the community I'm going to stick with, not the site itself. If you want to follow me, my official Twitter is here: https://twitter.com/AestheticGamer1

Yep I'm going to have to try this out soon. Also I noticed the box art mentions "Inclusive Multiplayer Version", what's that about?

Am I the only one to think of Corpse Party? Now would be a good time to mention that everyone remotely interested in horror games needs to play this. But the OP looks promising. Can it be had for cheap?

ehh.. maybe it´s just the videoes.. but this does not seem very "Horror´esque".. to me.. ?

I´m not a horror game fan.. takes too much to scare me today. But people keep saying that "Slender" is a really scary game.. hmm.. I don´t know..

I played through past the first "act" today. It can be really frightening at times, though the dated visuals diminish the horror a bit.

Pretty good though and I'll definitely keep playing.


Also, Dusk Golem: When I pick a dialogue response, the text sometimes flashes red or blue. Is that good or bad?

I'm playing on Easy. :-)

How long is it by the way? I might consider a replay on a higher difficulty.

What does the difficulty affect? Just the endings and the amount of damage you can take?

Edit: Hmm, they actually add in more scares and stuff? That's cool.

Same thing happened later, I meddled with it a few times and it worked. This is likely an issue with the fact this game was made for older computers, but it seems it eventually works anyway, though not sure what causes it not to work but then work sometimes.

I'll try reinstalling. Right now I can't even access the device settings without the error. : /

This vaguely reminds me of corpse party... I might give it a try as I absolutely LOVED corpse party and I generally don't like "scary games"... Why is it so hard for a BIG budget game to go a truly scary route versus RE's full on action game take.

I watched a stream of this once and all it was was a guy running around an empty school with the worst footstep effects I'd ever heard and a janitor NPC chasing him that laughed every now and then (I assume this is just the first section of the game). Does the game get scarier than that? Because I thought the whole "it's so scary!" comments at the time were sarcastic.

It's not reductive. I watched a long stream of it, and nothing happened that scared me. I was asking if, if that didn't really scare me, if the game pulls any better tricks. I love me some horror games.

Perhaps it was on one of the easier difficulties?

Pay attention to two things when watching videos of the game. First of all, what difficulty they're playing on. The better translation patch was only released recently (this June), and in most videos of the game a lot of non-Korean speakers picked Very Easy Mode without realizing it. To show what that menu means:



Most people who made videos before this was released clicked the first option not knowing what it was asking, and little knowing they just turned off the potential for 95% of the scares in the game. Very Easy Mode was made for cowards to get through the game okay.

But regardless, you are going to have to play it for yourself. Slender doesn't look scary in video form really either, as an example. You need to play these type of games to really get into it.

How many of those are truly horror(Corpse Party), and not just jump scares(Resident Evil)?
That said, yeah, this looks great. Never even heard of it. I'm a passive horror fan, but I'd give this a shot if I could find it.
