Remothered: Tormented Fathers is another game that I had the privilege to Beta test and have seen it evolve into the masterpiece that it is today. I do not use the word “masterpiece” lightly, this game is a true gem! If you are a fan of Survival Horror I highly recommend Remothered, and I’m not the only one! You might ask, “What makes it so good?” Well, as always lets take a look at some pros and cons of this game.
- Highly terrifying. This game really makes he player’s adrenaline pump as they are constantly hunted through out the game. The constant dread of being caught at any moment serves to keep the player on edge and always alert.
- Defenseless protagonist. Dr. Rosemary Reed the protagonist that the player controls throughout the game has two ways to elude her tormentor, she can hide in wardrobes and she can throw bottles into his face. That’s about it though! This lack of defensive weapons leaves the player feeling vulnerable throughout the game.
- A nice creepy story. Without giving away too much (because spoilers suck!), Dr. Reed busts into Dr. Richard Felton’s home for her concern for Celeste a young girl gone missing. As you might suspect, Felton is not happy with the trespasser!
Visually appealing, in a creepy way. This game is beautifully rendered, even if that beautiful rendering is scary and creepy as hell!
- Voice acting is well done. The voice actors in this game did a great job! Danielle McRae (League of Legends, World of Warcraft) as Reed and Adam Harrington (Bigby Wolf, Tales of Monkey Island) as Felton really show the emotions of their characters. They are joined by Lani Minella as Gloria & Red Nun, Olivia Steele as Celeste Felton & Jennifer, Talmadge Ragan as Madame Svenska and Brandon Fague as Mr. Manni all of which really bring the game to life.
- Very difficult. This gave takes things back to the 1990’s when video games were extremely difficult with no apologies. I would personally consider this a Pro, but I understand that it can be a deal breaker for some players.
- Not for children. This game by its nature is NOT kid friendly and will likely keep them up all night with nightmares. While I would have played this game as a kid, I would not recommend it to most young people.
As you might have guessed, I really enjoyed this game! Everything about it really feeds my craving for horror, and scratches that creepy itch. I highly recommend Remothered: Tormented Fathers to anyone who enjoys a good scare, but be warned: This game is not for those who don’t like horror or children. I listed two cons, but to be honest, I really had to think about them. In fact I spent about three hours and played the game some more trying to come up with something to put on the list. I can’t really fault the game for these two cons though, as they are there by design and serve to make the game what it is.
I Rate this game 100 out of 100. That’s right, this game is THAT GOOD!
