It’s time to get really scared with Harvester Games‘ horror adventure game Downfall: Redux.
Some games are scary, because they have lots of jump scares with quiet and gruesome scenes. But some games are so unsettling that it’s hard to continue playing. The Cat Lady was such an amazing game, and now the first game of Rem Michalski I already reviewed back in 2012 is finally available as a re-imagining. Telling the story of Joe and Ivy who want to save their marriage, but end up in a hotel that slowly drives the husband insane, this might be reminiscent of Stephen King stories, but it still has its own uniqueness.
Disturbing images of the past, alternative realities, bloody ceilings, decapitated people and other dark imagery are certainly not for the fainthearted. The graphics style and especially animations in addition to the violent and morbid story might not appeal to everyone, and the voice acting needs some getting used to. But the new version still looks and sounds like a great improvement.
With the original (available for free on the the Screen 7 website or included in the GOG version as a bonus) having had some game stopping problems which are hopefully addressed, this should be an early contender for pre-Halloween gaming. There’s also a 10% discount that will last until March 15, 4:59 PM GMT.
