So, I’ll just say “Oh shit!” about this game, such a mindfuck.
This is a game that lets the player walk around in a house that seems haunted, that there must be some problem there that needs to be solved, that needs to be fixed in order not to die, or well at least I thought so as I took a deep breath each time I rounded a corner and ran to the first lightswitch not to pee my pants in case I would notice something standing in a corner, just staring or pointing at me from across the hall.
Yes, to me this was a horror game beyond creepy. (I do not play horror games besides Silent Hill 2, so maybe I’m overly scared even though I always and more than often just watch horror movies.)
The sounds, the weather and the overall emptiness of the house made me wonder how I would die, how I would scream out loud and how I would run away from the computer screaming and never to be able to sleep again. But nothing ever happened, well things happened but not as I thought they would.
You get to hear the story of a young girl as you go along and explore certain things. Samantha is talking to the character that you play, who is her sister Katie through notes or somesort. How she explores the house just before you do and finds some things that would atleast scare me out to oblivion, I swear it. She talks about hidden passages and that the house is haunted.

What this game truly is, is a love story. A story about love between two people, so sweet and innocent. A love story between two girls. Two girls that at the same time seems to help the ghost of a man leave the house for good when they search the house.
