You are walking down a street you dont recognize, the fog slowing your pace to a crawl as darkness blinds you. You pause and look up to see a house; candles flicker in every window, like a beacon. Climbing the few steps to the front door, you realize many years have passed since it was last opened â€“ it has been sealed with rust and purpose. Inexplicably, just as you know the candles are for you, you know someone waits inside. Someone who has remained in that house since before the iron began to rust. They have been patient. Waiting for over two decades. Waiting for you. True Fear: Forsaken Souls takes the best of the psychological thriller, blending in fun and intuitive gameplay mechanics. The cinematics, puzzles and hidden object phases have been carefully developed and are steeped in a unique and oppressive atmosphere. Episode 1, the first in a trilogy, will long be remembered.

Unique cinematography! Astonishing cinematic sequences lead you ever deeper into the oppressive atmosphere.
True Fear' is the best Hidden Objects game I have ever played. The atmosphere of the game is very dark and really creepy. What I particularly like is that it is a real horror game and not like most Hidden-Object_games are located in the mystery area....
Not really something for the faint-hearted. ^^
The staging is bombastic and the most elaborate I have seen in this genre so far. Rendered video sequences tell the story and Jesus! they already have the quality of a good horror movie! The puzzles are relatively typical, although the Hidden Objects are for the most part much more imaginative than other genre representatives, because you don't always get a list of objects that you just have to find, but often have to do small interactive tasks to move on. The sound backdrop is creepy throughout, both music and sound effects, rounding off the gruesome atmosphere. The controller control is very intuitive and doesn't look as bulky as I expected (I played the game with my mouse back then). Interactions with inventory objects are set to X, while you can easily switch through the inventory objects with RB and LB without having to move the cursor over the inventory again and again. Well done. All inputs are visualized and, as already mentioned, very intuitive. So, despite the slower cursor, it's fun if you just want to sit back and enjoy the game. If you like Hidden Objects games, you should always access them. But also Point & Click Adventure fans can confidently access if you are into cultivated horror!
Top title in its genre!!
