Scorn is an atmospheric first person horror adventure game set in a nightmarish universe of odd forms and somber tapestry. It is designed around an idea of "being thrown into the world". Isolated and lost inside this dream-like world you will explore different interconnected regions in a non-linear fashion. The unsettling environment is a character itself. Every location contains its own theme (story), puzzles and characters that are integral in creating a cohesive lived in world. Throughout the game you will open up new areas, acquire different skill sets, weapons, various items and try to comprehend the sights presented to you.

This game kinda sucks? It’s more of an art piece than anything. I adore the art style. I played the game on a steam deck docked at 1080p upscaled from a much lower res using FSR. It still looked stunning. The Giger inspired style truly shines for the entire journey. But what exactly was the journey? This game was ultimately 5 mazes with four or so puzzles and a bad boss fight. The enemy designs are awesome. The combat not so much. There’s this strange incessant desire by the devs to have call of duty-esque animations accompanying rather mediocre combat. If this was a SOMA style game with no combat and simply avoiding the monsters, it would’ve been better. Heck even point and click would’ve been better gameplay wise. The ending is also rather mediocre, but this was much more of a journey through a foreign world as opposed to a thrilling story. I cannot wait to see what this dev team does next. In a world of battle royales and completely broken $70 shooters, scorn is a breath of fresh air and one of my favorite experiences of 2022.

Realmente el juego no es ni buen shooter ni buen juego de puzzles. Yo me lo he tomado como un walking sim y la verdad es que lo he disfrutado más así.
Lo que lleva la experiencia adelante son los escenarios, la ambientación y una trama sobre la que mola especular.
Y para una experiencia corta como es esta la verdad es que no le pido mucho más.
Sinceramente me alegro de que existan proyectos raros como Scorn y espero que salgan más cosas así.

Looks nice, but I couldn’t figure out the second puzzle.
