    After delivering the cult-hit Detention, Taiwanese developer Red Candle Games presents its next psychological horror adventure, Devotion. While making the jump from 2D to 3D, the superb presentation and storytelling remain intact. A 1980s Taiwanese condo is faithfully recreated in 3D to the extent that you can almost detect the odour. And while bringing together various art styles in one game, Devotion manages to tell a consistent story as well.

    Home is where the heart is, and Devotion is a shining example of what the horror genre is capable of.

    We may have no experience of 1980s Taiwan, but Devotion carries the tang of authenticity in both the sharply observed detail of its setting and its more imaginative flourishes, including a gorgeous interactive storybook episode. [Issue#331, p.122]

    Devotion is a pretty good horror game, full of surprises and tension. We didn’t enjoy that much the walking simulator part of it, but we did enjoy it overall.

    Devotion is a fantastic psychological horror game that’s short, concise, and well-paced from start to finish. It's a tightly woven story about a Taiwanese family succumbing to mental anguish and slowly breaking down over the course of its three-hour runtime. It’s not always the most exciting game to play – specifically, when it becomes more of a scavenger hunt adventure – but the highs are extremely high and far more frequent than the occasional lows.

    Despite the controversy Devotion is a gem in the horror landscape that we hope we'll be available again soon. Red Candle Games craft a little masterpiece in which the quality of experience like P.T. And Layers of Fear resonates.

    Using a fresh and unexplored background to tell its story, Devotion brings us into a deep atmosphere, full of Taiwanese myths and traditions. Unfortunately, the second part of this short game isn't as good and immersive as the first one.

    It is really ridiculous to judge a game simply on one easter egg.
    The game is great. Stop review bombing and grow up.

    This is a great horror game, unfortunately I won't be able to play it because chinese people can't take a f**King joke.
    If I had found a good game that mocks my country (Italy), I wouldn't take it personally like they did, that's childish AF. Learn what irony is before you review-bomb a good product like this, and by the way, Winnie the pooh says he got offended too.
