I LOVE things that can genuinely creep me out without relying on jumpscares as a crutch- and this game definitely did that! It steadily builds up an eerie atmosphere and sense of dread. It's unnerving in a way that's definitely reminiscent of the mangakas who inspired it. Like them, you know how to make situations and characters seem just not quite right and subtly unnatural in a way that freaks out my lizard brain lol
The art's great- it's very expressive, and adds to the mood of the game. Rachel and Anita are endearing and easy to empathize with, which I think is good for games like this. The stakes are higher if you actually care what happens to the characters.
I look forward to playing the complete game!!
