    This game will not leave you feeling indifferent. It’s a gripping narrative that has a great world to enjoy. Not for the faint of heart, but sometimes the best stories aren’t.

    Martha is Dead is not a surprise, but a confirmation of what LKA had already shown it can do in The Town of Light.

    Martha is Dead captivates and always leaves you wanting more. It is also, without a doubt, one of the hardest and most deeply themed games I have ever played, bordering on the unbearable at various points. A story like few others, a universe not so explored and unexpected and original twists.

    LKA has created an initially very solid mystery that gradually sinks into incomparable morbidity and an unfortunately more dispersed conclusion.

    Martha Is Dead has an interesting story full of disturbing themes and uncomfortable moments. It may suffer from the monotony and has several technical issues, but the story is worth it; if you can stomach that is.

    In the end Martha is Dead feels like an arthouse movie, when you have to decipher the game yourself, while having all kind of emotions. Whether you'll like it or not is very hard to tell.

    Martha is Dead starts off strong, with an intriguing story amid a tumultuous backdrop, and a main gameplay mechanic with a ton of room to evolve. Unfortunately, the game squanders every opportunity it has to develop its story or gameplay in interesting ways, instead relying on overplayed tropes and unnecessary mechanics. While Martha is Dead's disturbing imagery might not deserve censorship, its creators betray the trust that it asks of its players, ultimately delivering a shallow experience that does more harm than good.

    Martha is dead è appunto un gioco soft-horror ma non HORROR, quindi non si deve pensare a scene che ti fanno saltare dalla sedia o dal lettoMartha is dead è appunto un gioco soft-horror ma non HORROR, quindi non si deve pensare a scene che ti fanno saltare dalla sedia o dal letto dalla paura.
    È un gioco dalla grafica CURATISSIMA e DETTAGGLIATISSIMA, tutto curato nei minimi dettagli e particolari.

    Estava cansado de jogos de terror genéricos como Layers Of Fear, Resident Evil 7, Outlast e sei lá quais drogas mais existem. Martha Is DeadEstava cansado de jogos de terror genéricos como Layers Of Fear, Resident Evil 7, Outlast e sei lá quais drogas mais existem. Martha Is Dead entrega algo que os verdadeiros fãs do gênero querem: terror!. Acredito que o jogo tenha se renovado no gênero e criado um estilo próprio, mesmo que muitos não gostem. É difícil cenas de violência me chocarem, mas essas tem uma aura que me deixa extremamente desconfortável, na maior vibe Silent Hill possível. Provavelmente muitos vão odiar, mas é um jogo que nos mostrou algo novo em uma indústria de jogos de terror que está, atualmente, em queda o preço poderia ser mais baixo? Sim, mas eu dou um desconto pra isso haha. Parabéns a todos os desenvolvedores, está incrível. Expand

    Vedendo i video, ero già intenzionato a prenderlo, ma senza aspettative alte.
    Ma con questo titolo mi hanno proprio sputato in un occhio.

    Ma con questo titolo mi hanno proprio sputato in un occhio.
    Storia che mi ha tenuto incollato tutto il tempo (anche se non sono riuscito a concludere una delle missioni secondarie).
    Grafica e musiche eccellenti, doppiaggio (italiano) molto buono (mi ha quasi sempre soddisfatto), animazioni forse qualcosa in più si poteva fare, ma comunque ottimo, voglio lamentare solo qualche effetto popup di troppo.
    Sapevo già della meccanica delle foto, fedelissima e molto bella, con possibilità di personalizzazione. Poi mi avete fatto innamorare del codice morse con il telegrafo.
    Concludo con i miei più sentiti complimenti (anche se da parte mia non so quanto possano valere), gioco meraviglioso e continuate su questa strada.
    Chiunque abbia la possibilità di provare questo titolo, lo faccia, è una vera e propria esperienza.
    Grazie

    Nice graphics badly optimized. Synchro is mixed - they main character is well voiced though. Story is great but lacks in the end. Great gameNice graphics badly optimized. Synchro is mixed - they main character is well voiced though. Story is great but lacks in the end. Great game overall if you want a walking simulator with a nice setting and story. I would not say it’s a horror game. Expand
