Hello everybody, Shaun Meyers here to share my thoughts on Inmates by Davit Andreasyan and Iceberg Interactive. I received a copy of the game for review purposes. Like all of my reviews, however, this has no effect on my thoughts and experiences.
Inmates is a psychological horror game that takes place within a prison. It follows a man named Jonathan who wakes up to find himself stuck inside the prison. He has no memory of how or why he’s there.
The game features no combat and mostly revolves around the exploration of the prison and it’s various locations. There are quite a few notes hidden throughout the game and they provide a lot of the story elements. The game also features matches to light your way through the game world. Truth be told though, as a light source, the matches don’t help very much.
One complaint that I had with the game is it’s really slow walking speed. I know that it was done to make the game longer because it’s a pretty short game. I found it to be a bit annoying at times, though. You can also beat the game in 3-4 hours but I managed to beat it in a little over 2.
To be completely honest, Inmates hasn’t been the best horror game. It featured very little in the way of weird or demented scenes. Something that’s sort of a staple for the psychological horror genre. It also felt a bit lacking in gameplay as well. You mostly spend your time walking (Very Slowly) around the prison, opening doors and reading notes along the way. This one is a bit difficult for me to recommend in truth. If you’re a fan of horror games then it might be worth checking out for fun. Just keep in mind that it’s very short and it isn’t a very rewarding experience.
Thanks for taking the time to read the review folks. I’ll be back with my next review soon, until then, happy gaming folks!
