Resident Evil 3 Remake- Mistake or Masterpiece?

(This article is for those gamers who have actually played the game…spoiler warning!)

I still remember the time when I was a little kid. Life was pretty good. All I had to worry about was going to home from school and turning on my pc. And the moment the desktop screen showed up, I always clicked on the icon named “resident evil 2”. Jill Valentine was practically my heroin as well as a crush. Who wouldn’t love a woman who kicks ass and at the same time, also reveals some of her vulnerability! I loved how Leon was being a kickass police officer, managing to escape the hordes of those zombies. All this mess created by that notorious umbrella corporation.

Unlike the people who only play it for fun, I was actually quite in the story. Part of my childhood memories were formed around this game. How I used to see my character in my place, getting trapped among those zombies and how the aspect of playing the next level kept me awake at night. Time passed, and I kept following where the franchise the headed. Resident Evil 3 came…then 4 and then 5th installment. Believe me…like many fans I was heart broken to see blonde haired Jill Valentine acting as villain. Until I had a moment of phew when Chris literally knocked some sense into her with his new partner in crime, Sheva. I loved how they

Moving on, following resident evil 6 and 7, we moved forward, finally approaching the notorious year of 2020. I got to admit. Amidst the chaos initially unleashed by coronavirus pandemic, our hearts were already shaken. Ever since the quarantine began from march, we had been shaken from the coronavirus. It was a frightening aspect to witness something like that collapsing our economies and pushing us to experience moments of isolation. We were tucked up in our houses with our loved ones and we experienced firsthand the pandemic situation. Not something we would ever enjoy…

That was when I finally heard that Capcom had rebooted the resident evil 3 and were launching them. It was fifth April when I got the DVD. I must say that my neighbor who had started playing flashy kids games had made the right decision. Just imagine… I turn on the PC, install the game and then launch it.

A bit about the game

Here is how it starts. A reporter is telecasting that the global pandemic has spread worse than they had imagined. Buildings are crashing down and there is chaos everywhere. That was the situation before the zombies showed up. Imagine now some human eating creatures running rampant…what a way to improve the pandemic’s situation. When I had said that I wanted to take my mind off the coronavirus pandemic, this was not what I had in my mind. Capcom has the ability to produce the addictive content based on the current crisis. Back in my childhood, this aspect was awesome and frightening. Back to this 2020’s version of me, this was outright horrifying. And somewhat…interesting as well as addictive!

Then the zombies start showing up and all hell starts breaking loose in the resident evil 3. There is one wonderful aspect that other gamers don’t like. Some people like me have spent their entire childhoods escaping that horrifying creature that chases Jill Valentine till the ends of the Racoon City. Some of us resident evil addicts saw that familiarity with old elements packed in new environments. I must say that is not something everyone likes. I mean I am like the fan of the franchise like every other fan out there but to me, still keeping the defining feature of remake to be that ionic creature chasing Jill is epic! They managed to keep something that we have been playing and at the same time, they ended up changing everything. The game is indeed a masterpiece. It is visually stunning, throwing you into nostalgia every time you pass through a street and remember its version in original game. Changing something while keeping its essence same requires a lot of master-planning.

Some folks come with a lot of expectations from game like how it was supposed to be and how it was not. I just gotta say that I respect everyone’s opinions, but I recognize effort as well as a masterpiece when I see one. Resident Evil 3 remake had tones of changes to fit more realistic model of game’s characters as well as to introduce things that made sense.

Changes in Jill Valentine

Coming towards the game’s model of Jill Valentine, I got to say they did their homework on what makes a character, true protagonist. I mean if we compare notes, the Jill of resident evil 2 original version really was just a video game character that didn’t have much of personality. Now this Jill! This one is fire! How so? Let me explain.

Let us start with her voice acting. I must admit, when I heard someone new voicing my childhood crush, I was kind of surprised. I mean this franchise is known for holding on to the old voice characters. Then why did they switch? It is not a bad change and the voice actress behind Jill’s voice in the game has done similar roles before. She did her part too well. In case you are wondering, her name is Nicole Tompkins.

Let us come towards the outfit. I must say, the old skirt didn’t make much sense to me. Like really! Imagine running around in that skirt and managing to perform all sorts of actions in them. To me, it was kind of a surprise. Luckily, they fixed it. They replaced it with jeans and a blue tank top. Those who didn’t like the changes in her outfit, please give me a way to jump, kickass and perform stunts while wearing a skirt. I bet you can’t!

A Russian model named Sasha Zotova was chosen to be her face model. Quite a smart move Capcom! What better way to make realistic graphics than to actually use the real people? This was very refreshing to me to experience a realistic Jill Valentine.

The game designers also didn’t keep some of the elements of original version. I guess in my opinion, some of the old elements of the games are no longer relevant when we want a remake with respect to the current year. One of the most visible changes was that she didn’t go to the police department.

Coming towards dialogues, I believe once again Capcom made the right decision by giving her a livelier outlook. She is a living person that reacts to the situations. Every time the nemesis shows up, her reaction is something natural. Similarly, she is shown to have a personality that defies the grim nature of the situation is kind of refreshing. If I was back to my childhood, I would have been heads over heels for this version of Jim.

I don’t know why they changed the starting though. I actually loved the original version in which the game starts as she is with an NPC who has lost his daughter. Kind of makes things tenser. In this version, she is seeing a nightmare and then wakes up in her apartment. Still terrifying but the original one took the lead in this scenario.

Now let us come more towards her personality. Sorry to disappoint some of the classic Jill lovers but she didn’t have much of a distinct personality in original series. This is coming from a diehard fan of resident evil. She is sarcastic, irritable and that is what makes her standout. Now imagine that along with the inner rebellion which defies the direness of situation. You get a perfect heroin that kicks ass and stands out from others. She is not the damsel running from that evil nemesis. She is confident and far smarter whose every escape actually makes sense now.

The last aspect is something that makes Jill truly a living breathing human. She has trauma…something that was never even mentioned in original games. Like seriously…someone who has held her own against hordes of zombies and was forced to slay the undead creatures that were once humans must have grief. She struggles with nightmares in which she is seeing herself transforming into one of those zombies she has been killing. This is something that shows the mentality of someone who has been through such ordeal and survived.

Fast Paced Gameplay

I really love solving puzzles. But let’s face it. Who doesn’t like a direct game that lets you be just a killer of zombies for a change. I would want to vent and take charge for a while. It might actually be a biased opinion but the reason why we would want to play games is to take control of something interesting and epic. I absolutely loved the remake of resident evil 2 and how it delivered the stunning essence while changing a few details neatly. However, if you are stuck on a puzzle or a nasty level, you would feel a bit irritated. I mean I do. You can say the survival aspect of resident evil 3 remake is a little bit easier in a sense that ammunition is plenty. Unlike the previous remake, this one doesn’t focus much on solving puzzles and doing intellectual stuff.

There is one thing was kind of lost. I guess it was because original is still original.

Nemesis didn’t feel like a threat that could emerge out of anywhere. It had a few jump scare sequences and a few boss fights which weren’t quite hard in my opinion. However, perhaps we already knew that nemesis was going to be Jill Valentine’s biggest threat. Heck it was the defining feature of the original one. How could it not be the same in this remake too? So, it kind of lost that first time introducing “ever present threat” status. I really missed getting chased by that creature while doing stuff or trying to get away from it. I guess we were already expecting that the nemesis was the big bad of this remake and it kind of took the unexpected. Furthermore, I wished they hadn’t introduced the jump scares. I mean I loved them. But jump scares is kind of a thing that has become signature within all resident evil series. Especially in resident evil 7. Still, Capcom manages to deliver them in an amazing thrilling manner. So, no complaints really!

The game follows somewhat a linear structure. As I explained earlier, the famous police station is gone now from the remake. You can’t go there anymore. The focus is on Jill Valentine and I guess the lack of flexibility in the game design and playthrough was kind of expected. Like really! Somethings are mirrored as it is from the resident evil 2 remake. However, the creepy environment sometimes goes missing. Imagine getting through the stairs and seeing a bright donut shop’s billboard along with other colorful billboards around. It kind of made me feel that if zombies were absent, it would actually be a depiction of colorful city night.

Parts which are Different

For some, the lack of flexibility in the remake is what makes it feel like an expansion of resident evil 2 remake which I heartily disagree with. It kind of feels like a continuation but storyline is very different and I personally am not bothered by the linear stages. In original resident evil 3 nemesis, you chose your path and got different ending. But that is not the case here. For some, this may risk disappointment.

Then, coming towards other elements of the story, the gameplay is obviously much different. You don’t have fixed camera anymore. The story is a changed version of its original part. The story choices that you wanted to make in resident evil 3 nemesis aren’t present here anymore. Your pathway is linear and inflexible. Most of the puzzles have been removed and you no longer get the giant worm boss fight.

Final Verdict

I must say, it is thoroughly entertaining game if you play it. The remake is not exactly how the original was. It has its differences, but it makes up for them in form of other perks and advantages. They have worked really hard on this game and if you keep playing it, you will find many things to enjoy. Overall, it is thoroughly entertaining. Just don’t go around expecting everything to be like the original nemesis.

Dangerous Ties

Her figure was frozen solid, the spine chilling with fear unknown. The hair stood on the back of her neck. It was just a normal evening. She wished she hadn’t taken today off from the work. If she had, she wouldn’t have to witness the horror that laid there.

She tried to scream. The sound didn’t come, her throat giving up. Tears filled her eyes as she saw the ruby textured liquid, oozing out of that figure lying on her bathroom floor. It formed a pool around the corpse, staining the tiles of her bathroom floor. Where had this come from? Where had he come from?

Only one word rang through her mind. Poor man! Whoever he was. Too bad she didn’t know him or even witnessed what happened. All she knew was binge watching the Netflix, trying to forget the breakup she had recently suffered from her narcissistic boyfriend. He had been threatening her with all sorts of nonsense which she had reported to police. She had taken a day off today, recovering from all the petty discussions about that so-called previous lover. Right now, the only thing that was in her mind was to binge watch a series. That fateful moment, she felt her face getting dry. The thermostat was warmer than usual. She had to get up and go to the washroom, get a splash and come back to her series she had been watching.

That was when she got up in her comfortable pink night suit, putting on sandals and moving towards the bathroom on the second floor. That was when she found out that horrendous murder…taken place in her apartment without her knowledge.

She pitied him, whoever he was. His face was not there, just a mangled mess of flesh and bones with the rest of the body intact. He was tortured first, before that knife in his heart finally did the end trick.

She was horrified the moment she turned on the light of the bathroom. The scent of blood was too strong as it mixed up with the strong scent of shampoo. If she hadn’t put hand on her mouth, she would have thrown up instantly.

She got out of there, vomiting twice…thrice…four times…five times in a row. Her heart beat faster and heavy sweat poured out of her brows. That was not something you would take lightly.

It took her half an hour to get herself back to her sane state. Not that she was back to the casual state before. She couldn’t! But she had managed to scream, cry and decided to call for help, like any sane person would do. Who was that boy murdered in her bathroom? And could the killer be still lurking around?

She picked up the phone, intending to call the police. She needed safety and above all, she needed to report this crime. Whoever had killed that victim in her bathroom could also come after her. He might very well be hiding in her house…

She shivered at the prospect, screaming and grabbing her phone while running out of her apartment. The flaws of living alone in a newly formed apartment building were now starting to dawn on her. She was alone…one the fifth floor where she lived alone in this apartment.

Running out of her apartment, she cleared her head, nearly throwing up once more. Her state was disturbed beyond limit and she didn’t know if she could take it anymore.

A thought roamed through her mind and she shivered…what if the police found her guilty? The knife in that victim’s chest was her kitchen knife and soon, the police would find her fingerprints too…

She shivered at the thought. Who could she trust now? Not the police! She pictured herself begging to get away from the accusations they were throwing on her.

A word reverberated in her mind and she soon dialed the number. Brian! Her neighbor! The sweetest and kindest person you would ever meet. Like her, he lived alone, and he knew her too well. In fact, she had spent many nights alone with him when her apartment was not confirmed. He was literally the kind of guy you would feel safe with.

She dialed his number, crying on spot.

“Amanda, is everything okay? Why are you crying?”

“Brian! There…is a dead guy in my bathroom! I…if I call police, they will accuse me! Damn I was there when it happened! The killer might still be around!”

“I am coming!”

She dropped the phone. She was too afraid to notice a certain calm in Brian’s accent. How could he be so calm? Or was that his style of talking? She couldn’t give it much thought. There were bigger concerns in her mind right now.

The moment she saw Brian on her floor was when she finally let out cries. He held her, hugging her as she wept on his shoulder.

“Calm down Amanda. Don’t worry! We will do something. We need to get rid of the William’s body!” he spoke, his accent still calm.

William? That was her boyfriend! The narcissistic William who was threatening her all the way! He had promised that he would come for her, killing her on the spot. She had reported his threats to the police. But how did Brian….

“Brian…I didn’t know it was…how do you?” she tried to ask him. He was standing there, brooding over her.

“I had once a sister just like you. She was also in love with a bastard who didn’t take it well when she saw through his manipulations. He killed her mercilessly! I then paid him a visit and returned the favor. He was much like Williams…

Today, I saw William today as he entered the apartment. He was still talking to you while holding a gun. Rest assured he will not bother you again Amanda…now…let us take care of the body!” Brian spoke with dead calm accent.

Jerry had arrived at the gas station. This was a long drive on an unknown pathway. When he had arrived here, he had imagined the destination to be quite short. However, he had been mistaken. The road itself was rough and the pathway was mostly neglected. Few ever passed through here and fewer even mentioned this place. What was so odd about it?

He knew that to reach his destination, this place was a shortcut. However, shivers were sent down his spine the moment he mentioned this road to others. The bartender warned him not to traverse this road.

He was quite relieved to have found a gas station in the middle of seemingly abandoned road. It was quite a pleasant surprise. His truck was running out of gas and he also needed to eat. The motels around the gas station provided satisfactory meals, enough to fill his stomach. That was all he cared about. He could have his fill of the delicious cuisines later when he had arrived his destination.

He got down from the truck, now moving towards that fellow in his uniform. Apparently, the gas station was always working.

“Hey! Fill this baby up!” he spoke to that worker whose eyes looked like they had seen a ghost. Why? Jerry wondered.

“Sir, why are you here? Please don’t go down that road. Please leave this place and never come back!” the worker spoke as he cleared his throat. What the hell was going on?!

“Hey man! Please fill the truck! I am going to pay you!” he spoke once more before the worker gave a creepy smile. He was forced to do so…Jerry could tell.

That was when he felt smiling back at him. His face muscles were aching after a long drive and he didn’t want to even talk more than necessary. However, he himself was surprised. Where had this smile come from? It was like he was forced to smile against his will.

That was when he saw the silhouette of that figure, dancing at some distance. Jerry could tell there were others around too, hiding in the motel, watching him from distance. He could see a lot more of them, all hiding in bushes and within that shop neighboring the gas station. They were all…smiling!

He focused his gaze on that dancing figure at some distance, his body giving in to the rhythms of the wild movements he was making. Was that dance…? He headed straight towards him as Jerry got to look at his face.

“He will make you his puppet…run away!” the worker spoke before his eyes teared up.

The dancing man at some distance came nearer and nearer, his eyes all black and wide, his mouth showing the wide teeth clearly. Tall, creepy and covered in a black suit that revealed his stick thin figure…

That was enough for Jerry as he turned back and started running. Those screams turning into laughing sounds followed him. He managed to make it to the truck…Almost…

That was when he felt his face smiling, his insides rebelling against him…he felt his entire body being lifted and thrown away from that truck of his. His face kept smiling and laughing as he saw that creepy tall man standing at him…smiling!

The sky had a moonless night, the gusts of wind blowing through this half-abandoned town. There at the corner, there stood a mansion in that street of houses. Considering how many people had left this place, this street with the mansion was one of the few that had still people living in them.

He was present in his room, watching something on the television. That was the only thing he could do to kill time. The boredom was too much. As he looked outside the window, the skeletal trees at some distance sent a chill through his spine.

He never understood why his dad had come to this place. The townspeople were quite few and those who lived here weren’t friendly at all. Apparently, the company his dad worked for was doing a survey for this half-abandoned town, wondering why others hadn’t invested here. The town could be a potentially resourceful place for their extraction sites.  Well, that was what his dad had told him. For him, he always felt as if this place was filled with creeps.

The street he lived in was quite dark and grim. The houses in there were old, mostly abandoned. In a street of twenty houses, only six were inhabited. The rest were ancient and the folks that once lived there had moved to another place. Seven out of thirty streets were inhabited, the rest with mostly empty houses.

Whatever the reason was, he knew it wasn’t a good one. No one ever talked about why the town was mostly empty of people. He had tried to ask his dad over the dinner table and all his dad could tell was an ancient bedtime story people here used to tell. Apparently, the people told tales of a faceless man that was tall and towered over an average heighted man, dressed in slender suit. All nonsense tales, his dad told him.

Currently, as the night fell over this town, he felt quite safe in his bedroom, tucked in that comforter on his bed, eating cheese crackers while watching his favourite Netflix show. He didn’t wish to look outside the window. Cold wind was blowing, and the trees gave off a scary vibe, their branches moving in wind as if they were alive. He had been living in the city for his entire life and he knew how the trees normally moved in the wind. Here, they didn’t move like that at all…

The show was quite interesting and soon, he found his attention immersed into that silly TV serials. Before he could react to that main character’s humorous comments, the TV got shut down. Odd! Very odd!

He could have sworn that at the corner of his eyes, he had seen a flicker…a dark shadow moving. He simply ignored, calling it a trick of the light. He had to… in truth he was scared.

The problem couldn’t be found. The cable of the TV was intact and plugged into the socket. Why had it turned off? He wondered with frustration. There was no answer to this dilemma! As he tried to check the socket, he realized that the socket was busted. A burning smell could be felt in the air. A fried socket…that was what had been the cause of that TV turning off like that.

Extra socket was in that closet. That was when he heard that strange clicking sound in that closet. It was quite odd! A clicking sound coming from the closet? He felt fear in his heart…could the tales be true?

Nonsense! No such thing was possible! He moved to the closet, ready to take out that socket and change it. He had learned some of the electrical work when he was in previous town. He knew very well how to deal with a fried socket.

As he opened the closet, he realized a gust of wind passed, touching his face. This was quite a frightening thought. How could a gust of wind blow in a closed room?

He looked at the closet’s right most corner, to find something that froze his blood. A human head…no…something that looked like a human head without skin and yellow glowing eyes…its ominous head tilted to his direction! He screamed and screamed at the top of his lungs!

The Boy

She had never thought that such a day would ever come. Currently, she stood outside the house, ready to unlock the door and step in. Her husband had finally managed to get that house she had always dreamed of! Too bad he wasn’t here, and she had to travel alone the entire way, to finally shift towards this beautiful house. But she was an understanding wife who knew how hard her husband worked to provide for her.

FREE HORROR creepy_kid_door2 The Boy

For now, all could be thought of later. The aspect of entering the new house in the street, away from the noisy city life excited her to the core. She was very happy to be witnessing such a thing! For three straight years she had dreamed of entering this place.

She unlocked the door and took in the fresh air. It was almost dusk, and the street was starting to get empty. She knew that this town always followed strict timings, emptying the streets after dark. She knew she would have enough time to settle in by then.

She stepped into the house through the threshold, filled with excitement and hope. The house had already been fully furnished and it had two storeys. She entered the house and headed straight to the staircase, ignoring the living room to her left side and kitchen to the right. She could always come back and check them later but right now, she needed to just get into her cozy room and binge watch the Netflix.

As she walked to the stairs and started heading upwards, a strange sound of utensils caught her attention. Fear rushed through her spine. She realized it was only her who had entered the house. There was no one else. Sweat poured on her brows and she soon found herself struggling with the idea of going to kitchen and checking it out. She could ignore it though. One small sound of utensils moving couldn’t actually be that serious. There could be a lot of reasons for that. Utensils positioned in such a way by shifting workers that they moved right now. Or perhaps it was the wind…or a rat that was roaming in the kitchen. Nothing to worry about!

Her self formed explanations soon took a new turn when she saw that utensil flying right out of the kitchen and landing right in front of the stairs. Her heart skipped multiple beats as she heard a boy’s sound. Who could that be? She calmed herself the next moment. Perhaps it was a trick by one of those hooligans she had seen playing in these streets. Those boys were quite mischievous and no doubt one of them might have snuck into her house to cause trouble. She descended the stairs, turning on the lights everywhere before heading to the kitchen.

The kitchen was a calm and serene place, save for the largely empty cabinets and the position of utensils all disturbed, two among them missing. The kitchen’s window was shut and there couldn’t be any possibility that anyone had snuck in. She remembered that the street was empty and the boys she recalled playing were in completely different street. She swallowed her saliva, thinking about a possible explanation. That was when she saw that apparition of a fifteen year old…his skin dark brown as his entire body was covered in whip wounds…his clothes like an old sack and his feet all bloody…there was salt on his wounds…salt and spices…she could feel his pain just by watching him. He came closer as she shivered, taking steps back.

“Are you my new master?” he spoke as she screamed, before fainting.

Remothered Broken Porcelain: Horror in August!

Continuing where the original series of Tormented Fathers left, Remothered Broken Porcelain is bringing old as well as promising new features!

FREE HORROR capsule_616x353 Remothered Broken Porcelain: Horror in August!

With the already present tension of the year 2020, we need the entertainment industry more than ever. This is automatically provided in the form of top upcoming horror games of 2020. Fellows like you and me thrive on something to take out mind off the real world. We are always hyped about new games and movies. There is good news. Following this 25th August, the masterpiece with a name, “Remothered: Broken Porcelain” is coming out. If you are a fan of series, this means amazing good news for you.

  This is not wishful thinking. This is actually a confirmed news from Modus Games and Starmind Games, both of which have a dominant role in developing this game. The game will be released on platforms such as PC, Xbox, Playstation, PS4 and switch.

But before anything, what exactly is the remothered series?

Remothered Series

If I am to simply describe the Remothered series, I would describe them as deep and immersive. The story telling has been done brilliantly and most of all, it is very easy to be immersed into the horror world of Remothered. If you are a new fan, you will be simply amazed. Chances are, even if you start from the second series, you will get somewhat a gist of the story. As for the old fans, we already know our craft too well. The story is amazing, and the horror environment simply takes your breath away.

They have introduced new elements into the gameplay which only makes it better. The storytelling is great, and the best part is, they have introduced real time cinematics which make you feel like you are living through the experience of the character.

The story will once again tell new secrets and uncovered truths about the Ashmann inn. The stalkers and deranged hunters roam its boundaries. You will be pushed to the limit of your wits as survival is not just a game of quick reactions anymore. Be ready to sneak, fight or flee when the situation arises. And there will be times when your perception of environment will be wrong, causing you face the threats head on. That would definitely be a challenge and your intuitive skills will soon be put to test then.

So, what is new?

There are many characters which are reintroduced. We have the Red Nun, deeply terrifying character that returns with same stalking persona or perhaps more. You will follow the journey of a new character named Jennifer who will explore the mysteries of the Ashmann Inn. There will of course be new elements and some of them mean new characters, enemies as well as environments.

Features Introduced

Some of the features that deeply drew me in are also introduced in this game. The chief among them is the stealth approach. Believe me, I am not a very stealth oriented guy. But for someone who has played the Dark Amnesia series, I must say it is an art to make a gameplay based on running and hiding. Too many things can go wrong. The main focus is shifted on the art of storytelling and unless, the story is powerful and amazing, the interest is soon going to be diverted.

  • Psychological Thriller: The psychological thriller is not just the jump scare. It is playing the game and finding out something dark and sinister. A secret that is concealed in the dark is always going to be present there. You are going around a corner and come across something terrifying! That is the essence of the original horror. The aspect of something unknown…it also creates euphoric experiences of witnessing something new. The old game achieved that perfectly and a similar feature is hoped from this game.
  • Realistic Survival: I have played Dead Space and Amnesia Series. What is one thing that makes a game truly horror? It is basically the aspect of vulnerability. Otherwise what is even the point? For me, the aspect of being vulnerable is what makes you truly enjoy the experience. Your wits are put to test and thanks to your wits and decisive actions, the victory becomes yours. The first game tormented fathers had realistic survival and I am confident this second series will have it too.
  • Stealth Gameplay: Distract your opponents. Use your environment. These features of gameplay make you use your environment to the fullest. You get to know your own mental prowess. And trust me, there is nothing more ecstatic than to try something and see it working. Here, the stealth is intense and make you decide carefully and wisely.
  • Exploration: The aspect of exploration is a true art thanks to the amazing game studios of Starmind and Modus Games. Ashmann Inn is a place of madness, horror and dark secrets that should never be let out. That is what makes them so amazing! You explore in hopes of finding out something new and stunning. Every turn is treacherous and one wrong move can render you discoverable by those nasties roaming around. Sneaking and learning about the environment and its secrets is most rewarding.

A True Beauty to Experience

All in all, I would ask all horror games fans to actually go for this game. It is amazing and intense. The storytelling is a masterpiece. Use your environment, hide and run if necessary. And most importantly, have fun while exploring the dark secrets of Ashmann Inn on 25th August!
