Notes of Obsession is a short horror game for the PC. For a short game, about 30 minutes, it is so incredibly detailed. The stage is your own home and you are the wife/mom. Doors are slamming, there’s creepy laughing, and mysterious music on a dark and stormy night. The details of the house are so painstaking, from textures to the house knick knacks, that I was immediately impressed. We definitely can’t forget the horror elements of flashing lights, wet walls and each bump in the night.

Wondering around the house, you find a music box that, combined with demonic symbols, makes this one hell of a ride. Throwing jump scares at you like Halloween candy with some definite Silent Hills inspired elements, this is worth your time if you are looking for a good scare.

For such a short game, I don’t want to spoil too much so you have to go play it yourself; however I do have an end theory.

Either way, go play the game, come back and tell me what you thought, if you agree with my theory and more games you want me to check out.

SPOILERS: I believe that the dagger is a cursed object that was brought into the home and took over the son while the father was out. I feel that, at the end, it is indeed the son. However, this isn’t confirmed. It’s just my theory.

    I just finished it and my first thought was that the woman was crazy and she killed her son.

  2. I think the initial thought behind the game is “What if a mother doesn’t particularly like her own children”, so i’d say its pretty safe to say that the mother was indeed crazy and she killed her own son. I know some of the people that made the game, this is why i know this!
