A machine for gore...be scared.
OK I played this on GOG not steam, if you want me to prove it ill provide my game collection. Now onto why I didn't care for this game. The story is terrible, the scares are shock-type, and it rellied to heavily on having a disturbing atmosphere than being horror. What's the difference between disturbing and horror you may ask? Disturbing is when someone shows you a pile of intestines in order to make you sick. Horror is not disgust or disturbance so much as it is not knowing anything about where you are, how you got there, and why there is a puddle of blood and intestines on the floor. Horror is not knowing, disturbing is disgusting and grotesque.
Now wait I know what you're gonna say, "But it is unknown, you don't lnow what you've done or why." Which is such a dumb arguement that i can shatter just by saying this. In the very ♥♥♥♥ING BEGINNING of this "Unknown experience" you hear the line "Daddy please don't kill me..." I CAN GUESS WHAT HAPPENED OK! NOT EXACTLY ROCKET SCIENCE!
Now onto why the atmosphere is an issue. Atmosphere is a great TOOL let me repeat that TOOL in horror, Not the ♥♥♥♥ing BASIS of it. Atmosphere is just where the horror resides, not the horror itself. The atmosphere also relies way to much on blood, guts, feces, and other shocking imagery. It's not shocking, it's boring.
The stories abilities seem to be "Pig puns, blood, guts, etc. cut and print it" and the atmosphere has nothing interested within it that makes me shudder and proceed with caution. Yes I didn't proceed...out of BOREDOM. Not fear, BOREDOM.
And don't give me this "WELL YOU DONT UNDERSTAND IT CAUSE YOU'RE TOO STUPID!" ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ ok? I know horror. I was raised on horror stories by the late great Edgar Allan Poe and H.P. Lovecraft. I started reading Stephen King and Dean Koontz in the Fifth Grade. This game is not horrorfying, it isn't interesting, and it isn't very fun.
That is my opinion, and I'm sticking to it.
