Early Access release date: May 1, 2016
Eternal Walk is a Slender Man type indie horror game that is currently in Early Access. There is no explanation of what you need to do. You are given your controls and dropped into a dungeon. You are walking through a maze of wet-looking stone walls while your arm is extended before you, holding a lantern, which gives off the least amount of light possible.
This maze has no rhyme or reason, so as you are walking around looking for cassettes, you have no possibility of finding the exit. I also have an issue with them looking like VHS tapes and being called cassettes. I know, I’m weird.
So you have to find these 8 cassettes – I have no idea why or what for – and avoid the ghosts? Monsters? I have no idea what these things are. They appear at random and are impossible to avoid, creating a few good jump scares. However, you have no way to defend yourself and most of the time have to run through them.
The graphics are fair at best and it is really hard to see anything. You are honestly playing the game at the bottom center of your screen. Oddly enough, I do like their sound effects, but it all sounds like throw backs to 80s horror movies.
If you do die, which will happen often, you have to start over from the beginning, which is rage inducing. I never saw the end of this game and I doubt I ever will. It’s by far not the worst game, so play if you dare and let me know what you think.
