The idea isn’t revolutionary because it has been performed earlier than, however it’s uncommon sufficient, not less than within the West, to be unique.

I discover the idea very good in addition to the graphics of the sport.

The sport is type of designed just like the Outcast sequence and all these different fashionable horror video games from the early 2010s.

The sport prices a whopping $14.99 however has the advantage of together with all of the 7 DLC launched over time. The cellular port is made by the studio Feral Interactive, a real specialist in this type of conversion and a certain guess on the cellular market.
