    Remothered: Tormented Fathers is a wonderful single-player horror experience that any horror fan would enjoy, especially those out there mourning the lack of “real” survival horror games.

    Remothered: Tormented Fathers is the Clock Tower the fan needs​.

    Despite the slightly rushed ending, this Italian survival horror does not disappoint: the story is well-written and engaging, the environmental puzzles are good, and so is the non-scripted AI. The icing on the cake is the price, definitely right.

    Remothered: tormented fathers is a great stealth-horror game, in which every step could be the last one. During all the adventure you will feel the breath of the death on your neck, but runnig away is definitely the best way to embrace the darkness. A must have for all the fans of hard-core horror games in which the enemy is the stalker like Clock Tower.

    Remothered is a scary and confident debut from a future auteur.

    Remothered offers a taste of the classic survival horror, reminding us of games like Clock Tower and Haunting Ground, and it does it with great production values for an indie title. It's not perfect, but if you like being chased and relying on the stealthy approach, give it a try.

    This is a solid start for the planned trilogy. Mixing stealth, shock effects and survival horror, the experience is truly terrifying - at least in the beginning. Towards the end it becomes routine while the minigames and trial & error sequences become tedious.

Tons of wonderful surprises till the endAn intriguing plot and well-structured gameplay, recommended to horror-lovers and old school gamers! Tons of wonderful surprises till the end where you, unexpectedly, scream with the numerous jumpscares, fall shocked for the crazy plot-twists and, at the epilogue, you also cry for the tragically sad story. Remothered is a stunningly magic inspired jewel. A++++

The shocking storyline rules a well made masterpiece that finds its perfection with the satisfying epilogue painstakingly crafted together to produce an unforgettable experience rather than a game.

    After many years, Remothered: Tormented Fathers finally releases. The question remains though, was it worth the wait? The answer is aAfter many years, Remothered: Tormented Fathers finally releases. The question remains though, was it worth the wait? The answer is a resounding, "YES!"

    Remothered: Tormented Fathers takes everything good about old-school horror and meshes it into one phenomenal and terrifying experience that any fan of horror would be foolish to pass by. From it's beautiful art design and haunting atmosphere, Remothered is an absolute delight.

    From the moment it begins, you can't help but be sucked into this dreary and deadly world. I honestly found it hard to put my controller down once the horror of being stalked by these vicious psychos truly begins.

    In terms of story, you'd be hard-pressed to find anything better than Remothered. It's truly one of a kind and something so good, I don't even want to say anything more because I may actually spoil some of the amazing twists and turns. The less you know about the story, the better. I've played many triple-A games and never encountered a story this sadistic and original.

    Gameplay is tense and heart-pounding. You will spend a lot of time sneaking around the mansion and avoiding these crazy characters. Most old-school games that Remothered takes many of its inspirations from can't even compare to the types of chases that you will experience here. I really loved being chased because the soundtrack is just incredible.

    Remothered: Tormented Fathers may be a bit shorter then horror games in the past but this one is worth every penny of its price tag. By far one of the most original and engaging horror titles I have played in years. I can't wait to play it again and find every collectible!

    WANTS TO FEEL SO MUCH LIKE AN "AAA" GAME AND SOMETIMES IT ACTUALLY DOES, BUT IN THE END, IT FAILS IN MANY THINGS...

    POSITIVES: - Cinematic
    WANTS TO FEEL SO MUCH LIKE AN "AAA" GAME AND SOMETIMES IT ACTUALLY DOES, BUT IN THE END, IT FAILS IN MANY THINGS...

    POSITIVES:
    - Cinematic Story with Multiple Twists (But some are already obvious, from the whole beginning.)
    - Graphic Visuals (If you do not meet the recommended specs., you still can run this game on "Ultra" graphic settings, almost without any problem.)
    - Gameplay Features (Real survival experience, not "Run & Gun".)
    - Soundtrack
    - Open Environment (Not open-world, but wide linear, while being isolated in mansion. Brings classic "Resident Evil" feels.)

    NEGATIVES:
    - Unfinished Controls Management (The UI of controls do always swap, between keyboard buttons and controller ones, because the game cannot recognize, if you do play on keyboard or controller...)
    - Sound System (One of the worst sound systems, i ever witnessed, for example: you are in ground level, bellow playing gramophone, that is on second floor and you can still hear it, like it is next to you, even enemies alone can hear you through everything, if you make one step, bellow thick floor...)
    - Voice Acting (Sometimes the voice acting is solid and sometimes it is so bad, that you can even recognize, that each actor recorded lines on different microphone.)
    - AI (Enemies can hear you through every object, even if you are bellow them on different floor, actually when you do make real noises, that they should definitely hear, they will not even react, even if you are right behind them. Their vision is also very limited, because when you are normally meant to be spotted, they will just go right past you.)
    - Too Many Cutscenes (Every time, that you will reach some important point in the story, there is always long pre-rendered cutscene, that will do all the work for you and in the end you are left with not much to play.)
    - 1 to 2 Hours Playtime Duration (Finished the game almost in one session, without any struggle, only if it was not for the bugs and glitches few times.)

    FOR IT'S CURRENT PRICE ("STEAM"), IT IS MORE OF CINEMATIC MOVIE EXPERIENCE, THAN STANDALONE GAME ITSELF. SIMPLY: WAIT FOR THE PRICE TO DROP.

    i'd give it more time to polish the game before putting it out...

    i'd give it more time to polish the game before putting it out...
    starts with 30mins of cinematic simulator and 5 secs of walking between each one, the character runs weird, the character looks like it's going to die after running for 2 secs, when finnaly into the house it's like tom and jerry running after each other, the chase music is hyper loud even with the sound on the lowest level.
