PLAYNov 30, 2022This sequel’s twist is an ‘eyes closed’ mechanic: if you can’t see it, it can’t see you. Because of that, slowly plodding around the ominous red mist of enemies, your rapidly increasing heartbeat indicating proximity, becomes a simple yet terrifying staple (as do creating distractions, using your torch, and just legging it). As your vision’s frequently limited, the sound design is crucial. Between the lack of music, the almost echo-location function of the heartbeat, and disturbing noises made by the spirits, it evokes the feeling that you are never truly safe. And you aren’t. Lovely!

Nov 18, 2022Yomawari: Lost in the Dark is a creepy horror adventure, where you need to find clues from your past to resolve the curse put on you. Don’t get barlowed from the cute and children friendly first impression, since it turns into a nightmare real quick. Its not only visually very creepy, it also plays with typical human fears and great sound effects, so be prepared for some mean jumpscares and a great storyline.
Nov 6, 2022This third entry in the survival horror series developed by Nippon Ichi doesn't add so much to the original formula, but it feels more mature and brings more content to the “explore, hide and resolve” side.
Oct 25, 2022A third chapter that does not differ too much from the previous ones but is expanded in terms of map and plot.
