One of the scariest games on the market thanks to its splendid dark ambiance and well-developed graphics.

Along the way, he has to solve riddles and puzzles. It’s not such an active game, more an atmospheric one, where you still get goosebumps while hearing some weird echoes, eerie footsteps or even creepy silence.
