Michael receives a letter from his from his father, Taylor James Kennedy, who is writing to him while on the verge of death. He states that by the time Michael reads the letter he will already be gone. Taylor does not have much to tell or leave his son, just one lasting statement, never trust anyone. He asks Michael to stay away from his job site, where he has gone missing. Of course, Michael is an adventurous young lad you loves his father dearly, although he has not always been there for him. Michael decides to head out of his house, or room in his remodeled industrial loft, and go to the job site anyway as he can not live without knowing what has happened to his father. From there he will discover clues and other letters leading to the conclusion of his father’s mystery. Where will these clues take you? Can Michael make it safely? What has happened to his father?

    Don’t buy this. Don’t show this to friends as a joke. Don’t even say its name out loud. This is the game that shall not be named. This needs to die an unloved death on the Nintendo eShop purchased by absolutely no one.

    It is a boring, unpolished piece of software that does nothing to thrill the player.

    It functions, but it’s so disjointed, underdeveloped and brief that there’s no reason to give it your attention. Warn your friends, write it off, and then move on.

    This is not a video game; it is one man's attempt to exploit ignorant consumers. On the surface it may vaguely resemble one, and The Letter might have even been recommended purely for novelty sakes, but that would mean giving money to TreeFall Studios.

    I appreciate the effort of indie devs over the wii u console, but come on!

    I rather buy a SNES graphics like game than this pile of crap.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This is not even a game. It's just a walking simulator with nothing much to do than click on a few objects. The story is non existant and the plot twist is unnecessary and detract from the experience. Even for a few cents, it is still overpriced. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Why? Just WHY? This game could have been good if the developers know what they are doing. The Letter is a "Horror" game and it's mediocre at best. It would have gotten a lower if it wasn't for the updates. When it first came out it was one of the worst horror games I ever play, but now it's slightly better than before, but not by much. The goal of the game is to find our father in empty environments and a forgettable soundtrack which sounds like it was made in a day. The first area is okay, a little small, but okay. Until you get to the second area that can go and screw itself. It's too big and empty which can make you lost. On my first try it took a half an hour to find everything, but when you play it for a second time it can take between five to ten minutes to find them making it my most hated level in video game history. The three level is a mix of the first and second level, not to big, not to small, but just right. The fourth level you stand there for a few seconds and THAT'S IT! The Letter is one of the worst games I ever played and the worst horror ever. Don't buy this even if it's on discount on the eshop! Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This game is terrifically terrible. There is absolutely no point to it, the graphics are terrible, and the game play (if you can even say game play exists in this game) is beyond horrendous.The plot? The PLOT? There is no plot. Someone better at making games took it. It's about a guy who wakes up in his house and finds out that his parents are gone, from reading "THE LETTER". HE looks for them in mildly creepy settings and eventually finds out that is was all a dream. A dream with terrible graphics at that. THE shadows have render distance. Are you f*cking kidding me? There are no enemies, and the only music is low bass drums, there is nothing in this game that can genuinely set off any stimulation in this game. Oh, excuse me. It sends stimulation to make you laugh at how bad it is. In my playthrough, I decided to play in the dark, seeing that it was in the horror genre on the e-shop. I was bored throughout the entire eleven minutes this game took. Do not buy this at all costs it is a waste of two dollars, and you won't hear that often. Expand
