What do the reviews say?

The opinions are divided, even though the game is rated Mostly Positive on Steam (from over 6000 players), it was only rated 38/100 on Metacritic.

"Rather than try and make a quick buck out of cheap thrills, Dynamic Pixels and tinyBuild took the popular trope of hide-and-seek horror and twisted it into something new and creative. There is a great game buried here, as long as the development studio fixes the problems currently plaguing it... And if they can manage to really polish it, then the horror genre has much innovation to offer." (The Overpowered Noobs)
