    Interessting game, especially going to usually to ski holidays in Mundaun 😂 but even the graphics are cool, i would have like some colors, as the blue sky, the green gras, the white snow and grey stones, makes this places what it is, a mountain village.

    I'm still playing it through (I play for about an hour per evening to savour it) and while I'll reserve full judgment after completion, I can say that, despite a few game breaking bugs which are currently being fixed by the dev (one crash and one which forced me to reload and replay the last ten minutes) and some minor gripes with the interface, I have to say that so far it's my favourite horror in ages. It doesn't feel the need to try and scare you, instead it relies on atmosphere and exploration to set the mood. Love the aesthetic to bits (the videos don't do justice to the hand drawn textures).

      @Jesse Galena I'm not sorry though, because the fact that I ran into them helps the game. And like I said, they are minor inconveniences.

      Between three to six hours, depending on speed. I've been playing for almost four and I'm still not close to completion. That being said I take my sweet time and I also got stuck for a long time on some puzzles that weren't too difficult (lol)

      @C a v i r e x so it's more on the atmosphere. I played a game similar to this with a kinda open world map where you can fight, drive and survive in an hostile environment. The name was KONA... It was not that great (mostly for the rushed end and the combat) but I'm interested in another game similar to that one. I'll probably buy this one.

    So... it's a walking sim with puzzle elements? going off of the game's store page and this review, kind of tough to get a read on what you're actually doing in the game. I guess it's not much

      With puzzles and a few weapons, it's a bit more than a walking sim. But it can feel a bit walking simish in parts.

    I had high hopes for this, especially because I can see the mountain Piz Mundaun from my bedroom and the game is dubbed in my area's dialect of Romontsch. I guess no other game will ever be as close to home. So I'm getting this anyway.

      @DaDoNeM Herbert Don't worry, I'm from Zurich and don't understand Romantsch at all, no matter the dialect. However you guys usually understand Swiss-German, right?

      @DaDoNeM Herbert I have the exact same issue trying to understand Putèr and Vallader. Sometimes I think it would be good to do some sort of immersion learning and live in another dialect region for some months to get more acquainted with the differences. Just watching Telesguard doesn't cut it 😁 Anyway, YT gaming comments were the last place I expected to meet someone else from the area, so hi! 🙃

      I'm also a native romantsch speaker but I speak a different dialect (vallader). I sometimes struggle to understand the dialog in this game without any subtitles. It's like comparing southern American english with an Irish accent. Nevertheless it feels incredibly special to have a game on all platforms in your native tongue that you thought wasn't relevant outside this region.

    It does feel like a game that may benefit more if it didnt have the horror theme put on it. From the footage it feels more like a darker surreall tale you may see from someone like David Lynch. Not sure its my thing but keep on bringing attention to these gems 3 minutes.

      But that's what it is. It's a survival horror that thrives on atmosphere. Don't let current expectations of what the genre is supposed to be fool you: David Lynch (a main source of inspiration for the game BTW) is also a 100% a horror director.

      I watched their stream yesterday and actually, the art style reinforces the overall creepiness. Plus, as KC and Jesse were approaching the two-hour mark, the atmosphere and story got quite intriguing. As a viewer, I think the horror theme works well with the art style and the setting. I may be wrong, though

    Well the protagonist from Twin Peaks never really showed much emotion either, so that isn't a huge issue. It's worth a look, I think.

      I mean twin peaks was made to feel off on all levels, so a protagonist with little emotions helped, this game would have been better with main character that reacted correctly to all the weird stuff while everyone else seemed to not mind it
