Tormented souls is a return to classic survival horror. Survival Horror inspired by the original Resident Evil and Alone in the Dark series. With a fresh twist on the fixed perspective adventure, Tormented Souls modernises for a new generation – as Caroline Walker investigates the mysterious disappearance of twin girls in a terrifying mansion. While investigating the disappearance of twin girls at Winterlake – something terrible happens to Caroline Walker. Waking in the dead of night, naked in a bathtub – and hooked up to some decrepit medical equipment, Caroline must fight for her life as she explores the halls of an abandoned Mansion turned hospital.
Tormented Souls deliberately sets out to draw inspiration from classic survival horror. From Resident Evil and Silent Hill, to Alone in the Dark – Tormented Souls is a modern take on the fixed-perspective adventure, offering a modernised control scheme and a more dynamic camera, while retaining everything that made those games so beloved by fans. Dark forces and unspeakable horrors will do everything in their power to stop Caroline getting to the truth. Use anything and everything that you can find to fight back against the evils that wait in the darkness. ou’ll need much more than a steady aim and sharp reflexes to make it out alive. Search the environment for anything you can use to your advantage.
Cleverly combine items to solve puzzles and use every resource available to explore the secrets of the Mansion and its grounds. Scavenge essential resources and tools, decipher clues from long-forgotten journals, and combine it all to solve fiendish puzzles and unravel the secrets of the mansion-turned-hospital. Nothing is quite as it seems at Winterlake. Mirrors provide a path to an alternate reality and another place in time. By crossing these shimmering gateways, Caroline can manipulate the very fabric of reality in surprising ways – turning the situation to her advantage.
Really great game, finally beat it after six hours. it’s reminiscent of the older Resident Evils and Silent Hills. It’s definitely not a AAA game, but it’s also not indie trash either. You can tell they put a lot of effort into it. The voice acting is acceptable and is just the right amount of “bad” (not unlike Silent Hill 2), it doesn’t detract from the experience. The atmosphere is great and isn’t just a bunch of jump-scares, it builds a lot tension and unease with the environments. Ambiance and music are great, they really fit the environments well. Overall, the game has its issues but it is still fantastic and definitely worth more than $20. It really gives the experience of the atmospheric horror games that just aren’t made anymore.
