The Painscreek Killings

It’s a mystery game that takes FOREVER to explore. I must have opened about 100 doors and drawers in the 2hrs I’ve played it, and still have no idea where to go next. Essentially we have to search through a whole ghost town and pick up keys and clues as to what might be where. Great if you need to kill some serious time (like several weeks or months), but something that can get VERY boring very fast. Great creepy atmosphere, slightly dated graphics, but 10 out of 10 for effort in putting this game together.

Game pad navigation is… terrible: it’s one of those “click the left stick while moving it forward to run” type mappings. Have to be super precise pointing at a keyhole to unlock a door. I believe “ever so slightly frustrating” is the expression I’m looking for.

Made with Unity.

PS: there’s a drawer at the top bar whose texture could do with improving (inside).
