    Someday You‘ll Return offers a deeply intimate, coherent storyline experience resonating in every player according to their own personal experiences, fears, pains and remorse. [Issue#302]

    Delightfully creepy and packed with content, Someday You’ll Return will keep you on the edge of your seat with its exploration of a dark forest and darker forces and leave you pondering what it all means when it’s finally over.

    Someday You’ll Return is an incredible game with some slips that tarnish the experience. These problems don't ruin the game, of course, but they prevent it from being a must-play. Anyway, it manages to be a recommendable title and, above all, a different one: a breath of fresh air in the first-person horror genre.

    As a horror game Someday You'll Return falls short of the greats. It's not going to take the market by storm like Five Nights At Freddy's, or start a long-running legacy like Silent Hill. But it's still good for a lot of tense, harrowing moments, and a few sequences of pure terror, and the story it tells is absolutely one worth hearing. The game has plenty of pitfalls and you will likely encounter some boredom. But for everything about the game that falls flat, there's more than enough to admire, respect, and fear about Someday You'll Return.

    There's an undeniable beauty and some unique ideas in Someday You'll Return, however, the overall experience fails to serve those good ideas and build on them in a proper way.

    Someday You’ll Return is an ambitious failure. It tries to cram together too many disparate game systems while failing to handle narrative and character in a way that could’ve made this game work. I wanted to like it; I went into it with great enthusiasm and quit it with an equally intense frustration.

    Someday You'll Return looked promising and starts quite well. But quickly, due to some weird choices in terms of interactions, awful acting and a lot of bugs, it just turns into a disappointing and frustrating experience to which you'll never want to return.

Здесь есть всё что давненько не было сотнях подобных! Диалоги, звуки, музыка на высоте! (Ну кроме криков бабских) Графоний - четкий почти без изъянов - природа, подземелья, бункер. Визуальная составляющая убеждает.
    Единственные минусы это: Много мелочей для разгадок которые валяются где-то в лесу с неудобной навигацией! Но в остальном игра любителям бродилок типа "vanishing of ethan carter" - зайдет! 8-10

    Masterpiece!!! ... Hello everybody. I want to share my game experience with "Someday You'll Return". If you like original locations of CzechMasterpiece!!! ... Hello everybody. I want to share my game experience with "Someday You'll Return". If you like original locations of Czech nature (e.g. Kingdom Come Deliverance), mysterious places, thrilling story, then buy it. That game is awesome. Graphics, soundtrack, whispering wind, singing birds. Perfect! Game was made by only two developers and I they have my respect. So nice and large game only in two people? Give them chance, try this game. My recommendations. Expand

    One of the best games of the year. A very small indie studio gave us a 20 hour+ exploring adventure similar to an AAA game. A must have

Quindi, basandomi solamente su ciò che hoLa versione, analizzata in questo testo, sia quella successiva all’aggiornamento dei contenuti. Quindi, basandomi solamente su ciò che ho potuto provare, Someday You’ll Return si rivela un titolo che ha alcuni “debiti” con giochi dello stesso genere pur presentando una discreta quantità di personalità propria. La scelta di inserire meccaniche legate all’uso degli attrezzi e alla creazione di pozioni risulta apprezzabile, nonostante renda il ritmo di gioco più lento e pacato. Perciò, al netto di pro e contro, mi sento di consigliare questo gioco a chi abbia apprezzato videogiochi come Blair Witch e possieda una buona conoscenza dell’inglese data l’assenza di sottotitoli e doppiaggio in italiano.
