  1. Great story, looks good, but not interactive enough
    by raaoo, United Kingdom - Jan 2nd 2015

    I enjoyed this game. I like what the developers are trying to do, and the story is quite beautiful. The house is atmospheric and mysterious. However the story is quite linear and when you can move around freely there isn't really that much to do. Many interactive objects (folders, toys, cups) have no purpose at all. So the base premise and story are great, but it could have been fleshed out so much more.

    This is a good game for those looking for something compelling but not intense. The environment is mysterious but a little spooky.

  3. Waste of time
    by LB_, Canada - Dec 1st 2014

    If I could give this less than 1 star I would. This isn't a game. It's a story. And you don't DO anything but follow through from room to room picking up scraps of paper, tapes, and useless items which you soon realize are there for NO purpose. Don't waste your time trying to figure out any lock combinations... no need, theres nothing in there that you would need to finish the game. Sorry, there is no challenge here... I would get excited because the game is creepy as hell.. until you realize nothing is going to happen. Useless side stories and papers to read which have nothing to do with anything. Don't waste your time. Horrible.
