The Halloween season is just around the corner and so of course we’re looking for media to help us immerse ourselves in this time of scary stories and carved pumpkins. And what game is better suited for this than one that calls itself as Scary story? I can’t think of a better competitor. The game starts with your brother being kidnapped by unearthly evil forces. So your life becomes a horror and you are alone in a creepy, ominous forest, forced to take care of yourself. It is certainly a tempting premise that leaves you wanting more, and I tell you, more is what you get. You run, you hide, you solve puzzles. You even play the pipe whistle! All of this wrapped in a beautiful package of beautifully grim 2D art and eerie, ominous music. The developers really got to the heart of the look and feel of everything in this game and it is a joy to play and be scared of.
It’s an understatement to call Scary story atmospheric. It’s bursting with style and a creepy, Brothers Grimm-esque vibe. If you decide to pick it up, I definitely recommend playing it alone and in complete darkness for the full experience (blanket wrapping is allowed if not desired). Something magical happens when you let the game show you its full terror potential. Immersion pulls you into this defaced, haunted world and doesn’t let you crawl out. Often when I played it in the evening and had to run into the kitchen to get something to eat, I would cast a suspicious look at the windows and be afraid of clothes hanging over chairs. This is certainly a treasure for every lover of horror and macabre. If you are brave enough to face it.
No gravity games

Your brother has been kidnapped by strange, inhuman beings and you face an ominous forest full of horrors and dangerous and strange creatures. Solve the puzzles that pave the way, don’t get caught and save your brother! Find out the dark story that happened to the once calm and peaceful forest, turning it into a terrible place full of unearthly evils. Perhaps it is you who will solve all the secrets of the forest and restore peace … but this is not a fairy tale, it is a scary one, so don’t get your hopes up.
