If Infliction is a color, it will be beige. If it's a biscuit, it will be a tasteless dish of strong tea. If it's a band, nothing will play except Coldplay tracks. Of course, they all have their fans, and technically they can deliver on the promises on the tin cans, but let's face it: without them, you could live.

Big but here? For every sin committed, the punishment has the grace of redemption. For every recycled cliche, it offers something fresh. For every creepy conversation, there is another perfect timing and sadness. When you get tired of flipping through the contents of the same old room in the same old house, the game can accidentally throw you to a new place. When you are bored about that place, oh voila! -We are back to marriage and family.
Therefore, I am not sure what I think about this independent horror movie at the moment. On one hand, this is not a good sign. At the time of writing, I've done it three times (on the PC, twice on the PlayStation 4), and if that's not long enough to form an opinion, then I don't know what it is. But on the other hand, I don't mind the second or even third play.
Take this story as an example. This is pretty standard horror fare. Just like a haunted house, you play as Gary Prout, a stupid, dumb husband who is only responsible for finding his unboring, silent wife. Air tickets. However, it soon became apparent that Infliction firmly wore the inspiration of its PT shape on the sleeve, and this fragment of everyday suburban life was different.

We know that video games can take on the burden of these themes in a thoughtful and careful manner, but in this case, unfortunately, it lacks the nuances needed to effectively deliver these themes.

I feel bad writing about it. I know a person can be hurt. I appreciate their talents and praise them for their ability to collect (mostly) coherent contemporary horror experiences almost alone, which is why I am so contradictory here. The occasional shining light makes no doubt that atrocities can be something special. But, as it stands, it is not special enough.
That is to say, this world architecture has left a deep impression, and a large number of hidden collections and insights add a little texture and flavor to this otherwise less fascinating story. Favorites). There are also some really disturbing original artwork in the whole story, they appear at the most unexpected time and place, and I am tired of "Oh, the diary here", you find the most accurate and timely In the expo approach, I found Infliction's flavorful text to be both organic and inspiring. That's it.
