About

Maid of Sker is a first-person survival horror, set in a remote hotel with a macabre history from Welsh folklore. Brave the nightmares of the Quiet Men. When they arrive, do not panic — don’t even breathe.

Set in 1898 and based on the haunting true story of Elizabeth Williams, you play as Thomas Evans, a musician who is thrust into a terrifying battle to save the woman he loves.

Featuring realistic 4k visuals with gameplay focused on story, exploration and no-weapon survival tactics. Experience a multiple thread narrative where your decisions matter, unlocking different story paths and multiple endings.

Expect a story of forbidden love within a family empire driven by torture, slavery, piracy and a supernatural mystery that suffocates the grounds of the hotel.

A 3D sound based AI system is the core survival gameplay mechanic. Hide, run, creep, trap and distract are some of the techniques you need to master to survive enemies with super hearing. As you progress, enemies become more difficult to avoid, to the point where standing still and holding your breath is the only option!

Time it correctly and you’re safe, for now. Run out of breathe and — suffer.

Maid of Sker reviews and comments

Played this because it was free for Games with Gold and then I saw it was by the same publisher as "SOMA" which I really enjoyed. Unfortunately, 'Maid' doesn't have the same story depth as 'SOMA' - it was pretty predictable when it came to the plot twists. I am easily spooked though and I did find myself very tense the whole game. The music and look of it reminded me a lot of 'Layers of Fear'.  I did end up using a walkthrough several times because I just wasn't sure what the game wanted me to do. Also, it really wanted me to play with headphones and I refused which made one puzzle VERY difficult.
Not awful, if you got it for free, play it.  The music was lovely.
