Short review: I bought this game at a discount. She disappointed me! Standard graphics in real engine, I tried to play on 3 devices, 2 of them lagged very much, every 10 - 15 seconds! In steam, the passage of the game (community content) is completely different, in the current version, the game leads me to no clear place and does not allow me to go further! What struck me the most was that when trying to collapse the game and go to the desktop, there is an icon of the engine on which the game was made, and the program itself is displayed as “Myproject9” - it’s a shame, I put 2 stars, just because it works. It seems to me that the reviews are screwed up…

When you’re gonna ask people to pay $6 dollars for a game that can be completed in a half hour (my actual runtime was 32 minutes), you really need to pack it with an experience. Unfortunately, this game is minimal on just about everything. The game goes like this; go to room, read note, go to room, get key, go to room, read note, on and on and on. You probably spend more time reading notes than playing the actual game. In terms of scare attempts, there’s virtually nothing. Some loud noises in the background, a boy standing in a doorway, and a hanging body that occasionally swings. The build-up doesn’t even lead to a climax; you simply move into the last room and the game is over.
Twice Reborn: a vampire visual novel
If you crossed a vampire, would you protect humanity or embrace the blood?
In Twice Reborn, Mark Delaware a teaching assistant, becomes a newly-turned vampire in a community forced to hide in plain sight. His mentor, Michelson, has trusted Mark to become the Enforcer: a feared arbiter who keeps the quarreling vampiric houses following the Code. When arson kills key vampires in the community, it’s up to Mark to either embrace his blood or to find a way to–somehow–regain his humanity.
There Are Sacrifices to Make
Interacting with humans and vampires is a delicate balance. Not all appreciate Mark’s decision and not all relationships can last. Some want him dead, others want him for their own. Mark’s responses in the perilous community changes their reactions as well as the story’s routes/endings.
Survive the Night
Satiate Mark’s bloodlust, otherwise he may kill innocents. The opportunities for blood will not always be private nor moral.
Not all are who they seem to be.

The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope
“Who put Bella in the Wych Elm?”
~The unknown individual
To be honest, I didn’t really plan to write this review. I mean… what is there to say? It’s the second game in Supermassive’s horror anthology (a series of short spooky stories told in “choose your own adventure” way with some QTE elements) and I already wrote detailed review of Man of Medan (which was the first one), so, like I said, what else is there to say? Surprisingly, it turned out that, even though the core mechanics here is almost identical to what we’ve seen in Man of Medan, the actual storytelling, the structure of the game is pretty different and it does make it to feel… well… different. So… here goes.

“Little Hope” is one of the few cinematic, story driven games that are better played with a friend than alone and this is why I bought it. Unfortunately Supermassive Games let us down once more. We tried it a dozen of times, but just like their previous title the online coop is full of glitches, infinite loading screens and corrupted save files that didn’t let us finish the game. One year later they don’t even bother solving the problems and patching the game. Two years later they haven’t patched “Man of Medan” either. The single player is decent but nothing special. Cool story and atmosphere but definitely a step backward compared to “Man of Medan” as of the gameplay, decisions making and sceneries design. You can try couch coop though.
Zeliria Sanctuary, produced by Salangan Games, is a visual novel that I had the pleasure to play as tester during these Christmas Holidays.
Allow me to start this brief review with this consideration: the team delivers what it promises.
The game did not disappoint my expectations in terms of plot, characters and quality of the drawings.
Especially the final arts in “ realistic style “, truly stunning.
Let’s talk about the plot: when people play a visual novel, they like to be the architects of their own fate, they like to feel as if their choices matters. And they do, in Zeliria Sanctuary.
HUMKEY : I’m NOT a Hamster!!!
MAXX : And I’m NOT an Idiot!!
Maxx (our Male forces-trained protagonist) is a test subject during an experimental space project that seemingly fails for the researchers yet our adventures start when Maxx’s teleportation sends him landing onto the BURROW of the hibernating Salangan Humkey (the Rat who isn’t a Hamster Deity) on the planet Zeliria. Only Maxx can see & hear Humkey and, as the story develops and Maxx encounters female characters, he becomes known as the ‘Voice of Salangan Humkey’ - akin to a Messiah-like role.
