Is this a Silent Hill type game or point and click type game?
Do you fight enemies or just solve puzzles only?

It's more of an experience game than anything else. You explore the rooms of the house and see the breakdown of the main character's mental state of the course of the story. You don't solve puzzles or fight enemies, just open things, read plot points on papers, collect items to further the story, etc.
Neither really. It's first person, so it doesn't play like Silent Hill or a point and click either. As far as gameplay goes, it's a bit more Point and Click as it is in the "horror adventure" genre, but it is not in any way a "horror survival" like SH. It's more along the lines of Amnesia, but without the need to run and hide in closets to avoid monsters that can kill you. I loved Amnesia but that got really annoying.

Bro, if you have internet you can easily read reviews or even better check some youtube review. It will show you enough answer your question.

Kids these days....more like people these days. They can't be bothered to ever look up something themselves, they just ask the nearest techie they can find. I see it every day on Reddit, Quora, StackExchange, etc. I seriously worry about how the next generation will survive once we're gone.

I agree 100% yep what will happen when the helicopter parents are gone.
So, basically this is one of those "artsy" horror games that just make weird things happen, but there's no actual monsters or danger present?

Most games with "danger" and combat are not actually very scary in my opinion. They give you a jolt, but jump scares aren't actually that scary to me, their just annoying. Being suprised by someone jumping out of the bushes does not scare me once it's happended. It's the physchological horror that really gets me going.
That being said.....this game actually has a number of jump scares in it. I would actually recommend that you play Observer, which is by the same developer, instead. It is very very creepy and has much better graphics, story, voice acting. It's just better all around.
Well, for the most part I agree. Most games rely on jump scares to "scare" someone. But I've found the "artsy" horror games to just be... boring. Yes, there's some, well, not disturbing, but "different" scenery going on most of the time, but that's about it.

The whole psychological horror thing doesn't really do anything to me. I've seen more disturbing things that any game's shown me in my dreams anyway. :p

Its more about the aesthetics, the story, and the experience. There are jump scares but you don't really have to fight enemies.
