“The road to hell is paved with good intentions. I wanted a better life for my family and it was only a signature away. The ‘doctors’ told me the contract was just a formality. And now, locked up in this dark reeking cell, I only remember that much…”

In Fear I Trust is a first-person psychological thriller that puts you in the role of Nikolay, now called Patient #17, who one day wakes up in a small reeking cell. With a severe memory loss and a relentless urge to escape, your steps will lead you through an abandoned, decaying facility deep in the heart of Soviet Russia. However, encountering many obstacles along the path, you will need to solve elaborate puzzles in order to obtain key items or documents, diaries and notes that will shed at least a faint streak of light on the dark mystery surrounding the whole “science” experiment.

With Retrospective Mode you will be able to see behind the fabric of the physical world. This unique ability uncovers glimpses of the past, allowing you to see important hints and clues. Nevertheless, the path to recollecting your memory and discovering your own identity will be long and grim…Features:
  • Critically acclaimed psychological thriller powered by Unreal Engine
  • Fully voice-acted narrative
  • Use Retrospective Mode to see hidden clues and solve puzzles
  • Explore eerie locations and uncover the secrets behind a classified soviet experiment
First Episode
The first episode tells us how the main hero Nikolay awakes with a partial amnesia in a prison cell. Then, the events take place in the doctor’s office and in the laboratory. Advancing the episode, he meets ghosts of the people who mysteriously died in those places.
Thanks to the acquired retrospective vision, he is able to sense someone else’s flashbacks and to see mysterious inscriptions on the walls.
The hero finds the contract of the very experiment that he signed at the beginning of the episode.

In Fear I Trust reviews and comments

Translated by

The creation of the Black Wing Foundation does not get to lift the expected flight. Its Primary ballast is a story that is not so, because it does not present a solid connection between the chapters or its internal structure. It disadvantages the narrative potential to transform it into spaces of puzzles. In Fear I Trust does not finish rounding a good product, and even leaves the feeling of a job finiquitado ahead of time. A little more exploitation of resources and narrative cohesion would have been enough to get out of the generic. In this sense, the challenges are the best of the game, along with the voices and the attempt to bet on a dismal theme within an exotic world for westerners. It Will Be Necessary to wait for new episodes or a second part to know if the Soviets Have some ace under the sleeve or continue with a "top secret" of Little Mount.

Product received for free In Episode 1 we find ourselves in a Cell deep in the Research Lab at the Beginning. We explore the Environment and have to collect various Keys and solve Puzzles that we can get on. And, using records and DOkumenten, learn in fracture how it all began and what was planned for Experiments. Atmosphereatic graphics I Found to be very consistent and the Graphics are perfect. Especially the Soundscape of the Surroundings and the Light setting always give you the Feeling that you are nciht alone and there is someone coming around the corner right around the Corner. Horror or Jump-scares were not included in the first episode, but that was/is probably not the Focus of the Game either. I thought the Puzzles were well done and you often have to think around the Corner, there are smaller hidden Clues but they have to be understood first of all;) For People who love puzzles and an oppressively gloomy Atmosphere in which you can immerse yourself further and further I can recommend the Game warmly! I'm looking forward to Episode 2 and I'm excited to see what else awaits me. Who wants a little EInblick in Episode 1 and the Game https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MrkbkT6AKlI

"In fear I trust" is an adventure game in four episodes above all based on solving puzzles and puzzles and obtaining different documents (letters, reports...) scattered everywhere. Despite being noted in VOSTFR, a large part of the dialogues (especially during flashbacks-translucent characters-and recordings on the Dictaphone) remain throughout the 4 episodes in English and not subtitled even in this language, which fact that history (for non-anglicists) becomes difficult to follow and one leads to a final that leaves on our hunger because we lack too many elements for the total understanding of history. Moreover, the translation when it presents is very approximate (probably made by a Russian because this game is of this nationality) until confused a knife translated by "fork"??? Too bad because the puzzles, even if they are not new in their design, are well made and solve quite easily with a little savvy, apart from three or four particularly difficult. In conclusion, I do not recommend this game; say that I got bored, no, but all the disadvantages mentioned above requires me to give a negative opinion on this game.
