Shadows Peak is an atmospheric, open-world horror game focused on exploration that doesn't hold your hand.

The main focus of the game is on the atmosphere, story, and exploration. Unlike most horror games, Shadows Peak allows you to explore large environments and progress through the game in a non-linear way.

You play as the writer Tom Blair who has decided to visit a mysterious place called Shadows Peak to gather materials for a new book about legends. A number of people have gone missing in Shadows Peak. Some people claim that they saw something that they shouldn’t have been able to see there and, of course, there are some dark legends surrounding this place.Key Features

Shadows Peak Is haemilingly a walking Simulation In the Guise of an Exploration-focused Open-world Horror game. This Combination is not badly done. The Ambience is apt and the Surroundings are gloomy. Quite good is also made the Arc Of tension by Using terrible elements. You take on the Role of a Writer looking for material for His new Book on legends in The mysterious Shadows Peak. Whether you can enlighten a Legend or not depends on whether you want to do something else in your Life, except lapping around on an Island and meeting black Shadows. At any rate, I didn't Feel like it after almost 6h. Shadows Peak is definitely the Best Game of its Kind I know. As noted above, this is not a Game I want to play, but otherwise I can recommend it for People who like something like that. But Prepare to follow in front of a very obscure Story and die quickly goes on this Island.

Early Access Review I got a free Key for Review purposes, but this Does not affect my Rating in any Way. KURZREÊ You are alone on a dark Island ... Or are there others? My Friend, the Flashlight She lights up less than a Match, but you feel 5x safer with it-until you are attacked by a Snake and don't have a Gun ... The Game is very atmospheric and also looks logical. Unfortunately, the Lighthouse and flashlight are too dark. There are red Storage blocks for Storing, unfortunately you can't save anywhere and at all Times. Sometimes you get mysterious Messages on your Phone, which does the Atmosphere good. The Soundscape fits well with the Game and is greedy. Graphically, the Game is not a Masterpiece, but is enough. However, Some Textures look bad, such as water. Bugs and Crashes I didn't have. The Game is currently still in the EA, with Updates I will adjust the Review of course. The Price is just fine. Pro & Contra + Very atmospheric + Good soundscape + No Bugs/crashes + Logistic Island-building + Mysterious News-Lights Too weak-Often you can't get any further-Some weak Textures Standings gameplay: 35/50: * The Game is fun, unfortunately you don't know more often Where to go. Thanks to the Atmosphere, however, it's Fun and captivates you. Graphic & Design: 14/20 * The Graphics go well with the Game and look good. Unfortunately, some Textures are not so good. The Lights are far too weak. The Island looks good and is logically structured. Sound & Music: 7/10 * The Sounds and Music go well with the Game, even if it's quiet at times. Technique: 4/5 * I had no Bugs and Crashes. The Performance is mediocre. Price/Performance: 3/5 * For £7.99, the Game doesn't offer as much yet, but certainly a lot will be added later-Early Access. Support: 4/5: * The Developer responds to Emails very quickly and the Community seems to be important to him. Game entry: 3/5: * You start on an Island and can go wherever you want ... 70/100 You liked this Review? Maybe you like my other Reviews too! Just click here!
