Great job by devs adding control options of touch or analog control which is much, much smoother and more responsive.
Everything about this game I love - the stylish comic book graphic style B&W noir, the great sound effects that add to the taut and tense atmosphere, the intriguing story that makes you want to explore and search everywhere to unravel the mystery, and just the experience in general.
It’s such a creepy, suspenseful game that will have you scared to move into the next room. The devs ingeniously obtain this constant tenseness by using light and darkness. The uses of matches and extremely scarce light sources (lamps, candles and some chandeliers) is used to its full effectiveness. The game never cheats you either on this, as they do give you plenty of matches and opportunities to keep yourself safe from the ghosts that haunt the house. There’s definitely a survival horror aspect to this game in that respect, and you will ‘die’ occasionally, but the frequent checkpoints and saves make up for this. Combined with this ghost story is also a brilliant noir mystery to be unearthed which is more complex than most may think; the game definitely requires multiple playthroughs (and a smart move on the devs part is everything you collect in your previous playthrough you get to keep in your next! So no unnecessary finding the same stuff twice, which also helps with obtaining achievements).
I seriously think if you enjoy a great horror game mixed with a great mystery game, you will love this as I did...I know the controls are absolutely frustrating right now, but the devs have told me they are completely reworking the controls to allow the player to use an analog interface which will make the game so much more enjoyable and less frustrating in certain parts.
This is a well-crafted game in all other areas without a doubt.
