" sets a fine mood, has puzzles to break up the wandering and is a promising first release."
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

"...there were pretty good puzzles in this game and I enjoyed solving them ... it did have a story in the end and it did have some intense moments in the end..."

"Now it would be easy to dismiss Into the Gloom’s bland colour scheme and retro-styling as not being scary, but you would be dead wrong. I have said in the past that a game’s environment and atmosphere are far more important than visuals could ever hope to be, and this game PROVES it!"
Capsule Computers[]

"The first thing dispensed with from other horror games is the perspective, Into the Gloom is first person while other horror games rely on 3rd person viewing. Secondly, the game world is pretty much flat shaded polygon in design with minimal use of color- this really adds to the atmosphere."
Retro Gaming Mag[]

"Shut your windows, close the curtains and turn off the lights as you are about to play a first person puzzle solving horror game from earrgames.'s certainly one to impress with fantastic level design and an atmospheric background."

About the Game

Into the gloom is a first person puzzle solving horror game based on retro style graphics.

It features only the black, white and red colors. Explore 9 levels to find the items to solve the puzzles. You will encounter terrifying events along your path, and must escape from "The Shadow".

The real creepiness of the game is not about the black and white colors, but the atmosphere, the sound effects an other... surprises, also features real puzzles, not like in other games where you just run and get the key for the door.

Be prepared for the horror, and to run for your life, in this pixel style horror adventure with two possible endings!
