    Viviette is undeniably the best 2D horror game that I've ever played. Even if you don't particularly like the genre, you still might be pleasantly surprised with what Viviette has to offer.

    When playing this game it is clear that its creators wanted the player to be scared. Viviette has a good atmosphere in the survival horror genre and a slow and terrifying pace.

    There are too many creepy statues, too many pools of blood, and too many run-ins with the knife woman to keep up the pretense that I'm supposed to be terrified. Viviette tries to go gonzo with the jump scares and frenetic furnishings rather than showing a crumb of constraint, something that would have gone a long way to keeping the tension from the first 45 minutes or so alive through its conclusion.

    At its best, Viviette is an unsettling, atmospheric little escapade, telling a story which, while hitting some familiar horror beats, will make you thoroughly uncomfortable.

    Viviette is purposefully inaccessible to all but the most hardcore puzzle solvers. Perhaps this is the point, and many will undoubtedly see this as a good thing. If you want a game to really push you to the absolute limits of memorizing a whole area to identify every hidden clue, then Viviette may be the game for you. Otherwise, it’s best to look elsewhere, since you’ll probably spend more time looking up solutions online than actually figuring them out yourself.

    Apart from the wonderful 16-bit audio-visuals, Viviette turns out to be nothing more than a repetitive search for key-item after key-item, with a little bit of puzzle-solving thrown in, next to a simple horror tale that won't really creep you out that much.

    If you’re looking for a game with not even a sliver of hand-holding, Viviette will scratch your itch. If you need no motivation to explore a spooky mansion, you’ll find that in the game. However, If you need either of those things even in the slightest, this is one game I would suggest you hide from.

    7.5/10 DYA Games has created something magical with Viviette. It's like an SNES horror adventure with cute but macabre graphics. This game7.5/10 DYA Games has created something magical with Viviette. It's like an SNES horror adventure with cute but macabre graphics. This game makes great use of the Switch's screen capture feature; I used it when I came across something of interest, so recalling where things are located and which clues I needed for puzzles was a snap. Viviette isn't for everyone (if you don't enjoy classic adventure, puzzle solving, or exploration-based games, I'd steer clear). But if you're like me and you love a scary old mansion, figuring out which object to use where and well-crafted retro style games, Viviette is worth the money. Expand
