Fantastic atmosphere. Love that you can approach each enemy encounter with a different strategy.

Early Access v0.1.222
The game is fun, engaging and interesting in a lot of ways. I do have a few difficulty spike concerns with the Tavern level in particular (if you know you know), but through the process learned that this is is as much an exploration game as it is stealth. As a fan of stealth titles I do really recommend this title but would advise most to wait until the full release. Looking forward to coming back to it when the day arrives.

Waiting for the full release, not very impressed with early access, the demo felt better.

yall don't know how much I needed a game like this after playing Prey. I bought it 5 months ago and I just got around to playing it and it's INCREDIBLE.
I would've given it a 4.5 but it's really short and it's still in early access BUT either way don't let the early access tagline stop you from playing it!! It's REALLY GOOD
I loved the RE4 inventory system so much -seriously all games should have it at this point lmao-
loved how the shadows are literally a mechanic in the game and how you can hide IN them
I LOVED the light ring and how it genuinely makes the game clean -it's HUDless which is so cool-
Loved the save system phonograph which is basically like the old typewriters in Resident Evil -I especially loved it in the first area since it wasn't linear like the other two but after finishing the second area I thought it was kinda annoying and didn't really serve any purpose but hey it's still a pretty cool idea after all-
Here are some stuff/concerns that I hope will get fixed or added in later updates:
1- I thought the 'looting for money' was great but why would put it IN the game if I can't do anything with it YET?? I kept all the raw gems and the brooch throughout the whole game in my ALREADY LIMITED INVENTORY and apparently it was literally for nothing?? I'm sorry but that is so dumb
2- the A.I., the way to see my HP, and climbing are a bit clunky but it's okay they didn't bother me that much and I'm pretty sure they'll get fixed sooner or later
3- I'd love if they'd be a little more specific when I pick up a key, yeah I know I just praised the game for how clean it looks but keys look literally the same and I don't want to stop what I'm doing to open every locked door in the area to check if I was using the right key or not.
4- I know it's kinda pointless but I'd love if they put my playthrough's stats when I finish one -like dishonored maybe-
Anyways, Gloomwood isn't perfect YET by no means but it's genuinely awesome and I seriously do NOT remember the last time I played an immersive sim without having to go through a hassle like 99% of the time lmao. I repeat I highly recommend it even in its current state and I'm so excited for it to get finished. وصح الديفولبر يشبه اوسمز خخخخ

It is veeeery climatic, and I gotta give it a bit more credit for having a Polish person on the cast. 4,5/5
