COMA MORTUARY [HORROR][VOICE][INDIE]
Full Game: Death Is Hell

“In sorrow we must go, but not in despair. Behold! we are not bound for ever to the circles of the world, and beyond them is more than memory.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien

Well, if this is afterlife, I do not want to die.

Game Horror Rating: ☠☠☠☠ (4/5 Skulls)

Game Review: ★★★★ (4/5 Stars)
Coma: Mortuary…. if this is what the afterlife looks like, I do not want to die.

In a very confusing scenario we descend deep into the world of the dead. Are we dead ourselves? Are we a living soul trapped in the world of the dead, unable to find our way back to the world of the living? Are we being punished for our wrongs in life in this prison hell? We do not get conclusive answers as we make our way deep into the underground of the afterlife, trying our best to stay alive… or whatever state of consciousness we possess.

The atmosphere in this 1-hour horror game is fantastic, and the graphics and great voice acting contribute to the effects of the numerous jumpscares and intensity of the chase scenes that await in this game. While this clearly is a walking simulator (as advertised!) with little actual interaction with our environment and no actual riddles or difficult tasks, the game still convinces with its great execution and intriguing ideas of what might happen after death and why.

In my opinion, the price is a little too high for the 1 hour of gameplay this game brings, but if bought on sale, the game is very much worth it.

THE OLD TREE [ADVENTURE][VOICE][INDIE]
Full Game: The Ship Of The Dead
⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫
“The River Styx,’ Annabeth murmured. ‘It’s so…’
‘Polluted,’ Charon said. ‘For thousands of years, you humans have been throwing in everything as you come across – hopes, dreams, wishes that never came true. Irresponsible waste management, if you ask me.”

― Rick Riordan

Stranded in a very strange environment, we end up on a ship with very weird passengers as we try to uncover who we are and what happened.

Game Relaxation/& Atmosphere Rating: ⚜⚜⚜ (3/5 Fleur-De-Lis)

Game Review: ★★★ (3/5 Stars)
Port Of Call is a fairly decent indie adventure game. If you’re looking for a horror game, which this is tagged as, I’m afraid you will be disappointed. The atmosphere of the game is alright, although while mysterious it is not creepy or scary in any way. The game’s graphics are very simplistic although okay for a F2P indie game.
The story of the game is very original and interesting, however the gameplay time is only approximately 30 minutes and consists mainly of conversations without voice over.

If you’re looking for an interesting and original, however short, indie game, this is just the game you’re looking for. If you however want to be a little creeped out even, this might not be the game you want to play.

THE OLD TREE [RELAXATION][VOICE][INDIE]
Full Game: The Apple Alien Baby
⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫
“Man has gone out to explore other worlds and other civilizations without having explored his own labyrinth of dark passages and secret chambers, and without finding what lies behind doorways that he himself has sealed.”

― Stanisław Lem

This super relaxing game didn’t even give me a chance to say very much. I made my voice very quiet in this playthrough, so as to not disturb anyone with it and take away this amazing atmosphere. Join Apple Alien Baby on his journey up the old tree.

Game Relaxation/& Atmosphere Rating: ⚜⚜⚜⚜ (4/5 Fleur-De-Lis)

Game Review: ★★★★ (4/5 Stars)
This is a very short atmospherical Indie game in which the player is able to aid and observe the journey of what I call the apple alien baby up the old tree.

The game is point&click with rather little interaction, no dialogue and about 10-15 minutes of playtime.

Despite the simplistic interaction with the game, the game is extremely nice to play. One is easily able to immerse oneself into the game due to the very nice and soothingly calm soundtrack.

I recommend this game for anyone who would like to just sit back and relax for a couple of minutes.

FINGERBONES [HORROR][VOICE][INDIE]
Full Game: Psycho D(e)ad
⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫
When I was 15 years old, I lost my virginity. I shook uncontrollably the entire time. I felt that same primal excitement last night in the cellar.

– Dad

Well, this is messed up. We’re playing a psychological horror game, find a bunch of Fingerbones (altho apparently the girl only had 9 fingers), and die because we are too stupid to climb back out of our own cellar in the dark. Cra-a-azy. 🙂

Game Horror Rating: ☠ (1/5 Skulls)

Game Review: ★★ (2/5 Stars)
I have to admit that I was fairly disappointed by this game. There were some great reviews and everything pointed to this being a great even though short psychological horror game. I didn’t mind the graphics, which are quite bad, the music that never seemed to really change, and the sound effects that were literally almost non-existent and when existent looping in very short loops. It’s an indie game, right?

However, I was expecting a somewhat more thrilling story and a little more gameplay than it ended up being. It took me just over 10 minutes to get through the game, and not even the implications of rape and murder were really getting to me the way they were delivered.

In the end, I recommend the game since maybe some people really enjoy it and it’s not terrible, but for myself personally this was just disappointing.
