The Halloween season is nigh and so, naturally, we look for the kinds of media that help us ease into this time of scary stories and carved pumpkins. And what better game to do it than one that dubs itself as Creepy Tale? Can’t think of a better contender. The game starts off with your brother being taken by otherworldly evil powers. Just like that, your life turns into horror and you’re left alone in a creepy, ominous forest, forced to fend for yourself. It is certainly an alluring premise that leaves you wanting more, and let me tell you, more you get. You run, you hide, you solve puzzles. You even play the reedpipe! All of this wrapped in a beautiful package of beautifully grim 2D art and eerie, foreboding music. The developers have really nailed the look and the sound of everything in this game and it’s a pleasure to play it and let it creep you out.
It is an understatement to call Creepy Tale atmospheric. It oozes style and a creepy, Brothers Grimm-esque mood. If you decide to pick it up I definitely recommend playing it alone and in completed darkness to get the full experience (wrapping yourself in a blanket allowed, if not encouraged). There’s something magical that happens when you let the game show you its full potential for terror. The immersion sucks you into this blemished, haunting world and doesn’t let you crawl out. Many times when I was playing it during the evening and had to make a run to the kitchen for some food I found myself glancing at windows with suspicion and getting scared of clothes hanging over chairs. This one is for sure a treasure for any lover of horror and macabre. If they are brave enough to face it.
