SynopsisIn a peaceful part of the town, a series of deaths occur, seemingly random at first, but gruesome in their nature. One day, you find an object that doesn't belong in your house. An old, worn-out, stained mirror. That is the very moment when you'll discover that the simple mirror isn't the only thing that is out of place.

Explore the thriving streets of the small suburban area, search through the abandoned houses stained by gruesome past, and find out what haunts you through the silver pane of glass. As the game progresses and the more you approach the root of all horror, you'll realise that not everything is what it seems.

Peace together fragments of the past events, read between the lines, and look at things from a different perspective. All alone in the crowd, the cold grip of a confused and consuming rage will coarse through your veins.Features:
  • A detailed and AI populated game world.
  • A Haunting game atmosphere and soundtrack.
  • Make the most of the Mirror mechanic - some things are not what they seem at first glance.
  • A Gripping story woven through the environment, puzzles and in-game events.
  • Mystery style game-play. You must explore and search out clues and objects. The game will not hold you hand.
  • Multiple choice endings.

Joana's Life reviews and comments

Completed on Feb 05, 2021. This game, which has some nice ideas in practice (such as mirror and spirit-calling mechanics), it's can't manage the technical part of the job. While playing the game, you will notice the abundance of parts that need more work. If you are looking for a short and different horror game and the quality of the game is not important to you, you may still want to look.

The Game is unfortunately unplayable by its Bugs and Glitches. From the Task of "Find all Mirror Shards" you can do nothing More than find the three reachable Mirrored shards before standing in front of the busted Door opposite the burning house, which is probably the Key to ending this Mission and thus the Game Continue. As soon as you stand in front of it, the Mission changes to "Explore the House," this confirms my Statement of the bugled door. In and of itself, the Idea of the Game is quite nice and the Moments of Frightening Are sometimes there. Would Have liked to know what to do, but unfortunately this is not possible thanks to the Bugs. Unfortunately, the Bugs are probably not celebrated either, because the Game has been out for almost half a Year. What a pity!

I hate to write negative Reviews and always try to see the positive in Games ... But People what did you think of? The first few Minutes quite succeeded. Apart from the Bugs and the Glitches ... But then as soon as you somehow make it out of the House it's just Crap. One spawns around arbitrarily in different Houses and Worlds. Nothing comprehensible and it looks like you have indiscriminately pressed Ideas Scraps into the Game in order to somehow scoop money ... Sorry People's could have gotten so good, but instead it's just Crap. We streamed the Game from September 30th to 31st 03. So If you want to convince yourself of this, you can check out my Twitch Channel. Unfortunately, my Viewers also had this View. The first few Minutes YEAH. Then somehow SCHNARCH and DUMM:(

I'm reluctant to write about Games where I Feel like they're not done yet. I also know how much Work there is in such a Game. Still, I have to fault it. Basically, the Game and the Idea is good. Nevertheless, it may also have some Idiosyncrasies. So I had to go to the Main Menu several times and back to the Game (Continue) so I could make ' Progress '. When I Reload the Game from the Main Menu, I was able to move on. This may be because I have not properly crossed any Trigger Zones, or the Level Design still contains some Logic Errors or Design errors. At the Beginning you will find a Key on the Bedside table. However, you can only take it in after you have brought the Mirror on your Doorstep ... Which one can only be taken once you have switched to the Main Menu ... I hope you now understand about what I mean. Once you can leave the House, you walk around a ' Copy and Paste ' town. Still a bit desolate, but Okay. You have your Mirror that shows you the Way. In the current State, however, the short Pleasure is unfortunately not worth €5 uro. Hence my negative Assessment. Too bad it would have had the Potential.
