    Follia: Dear Father is a classic survival horror film that incorporates the Amnesia model and plays in a more contemporary key, at least on a thematic level.

    Follia: Dear Father is a simple but intriguing survival horror made by small Italian software house. As many other indie titles, it is full of nice ideas but crippled by lots of imperfections. Its VR nature makes it hard to be enjoyed from a normal screen.

    Follia: Dear Father tells an inconsistent and trivial story and fills the great narrative voids with jumpscares and dull gameplay mechanics.

    In short, some easy scares and a fair amount of blood and offal on the screen are not enough to recommend a title that has little to offer even the most hardcore fans of a formula that perhaps, at this point, deserves some kind of revision.

    Follia could’ve been an interesting game, but its gameplay is just not good enough. It feels like we’ve played this game too many times, and it doesn’t do anything well enough to recommend it over the dozens of alternatives available. We understand the limited resources this small Italian team had; however, the core mechanics are just not fun.

    I have seen every, even the smallest, feature of Follia’s horror somewhere else before. And usually each of these features was executed much better than here. [07/2020, p.58]

    I think it is an good product, unfortunately many users are criticizing the work of ONLY 2 DEVELOPERS.
    Unfortunately, the efforts of those who really believe in what they do are not appreciated, but they focus on perfection without evaluating the end credits structured on ONLY 2 INDEPENDENT DEVELOPERS.

    Follia: Dear Father è un survival horror che non spicca tra la massa dei titoli indie simili, a causa anche dei limiti della sua natura.Follia: Dear Father è un survival horror che non spicca tra la massa dei titoli indie simili, a causa anche dei limiti della sua natura. Inoltre, si affida ad una struttura già vista, quasi abusata, senza introdurre elementi originali, ma portandosi dietro di sé elementi da saper amalgamare con gli altri. Mi riferisco alla presenza di un leggero backtracking o a scelte come quella di un inventario gestito a slot, il cui quantitativo può essere aumentato attraverso la raccolta di consumabili. Nel complesso il videogioco riesce a convogliare tutto ciò in un prodotto più che sufficiente al netto di elementi che non funzionano pienamente. Sicuramente ad alcuni, maggiormente disposti a sorvolare sui difetti, potrà piacere, ma appunto non riesca ad andare ben oltre la sufficienza. Expand
