Horror adventure / walking simulation games have seemed to be quite abundant on the Switch but unfortunately they’ve all been pretty middle of the road without any clearly stepping up and achieving something great. Infliction blends in pretty well with the rest of the pack in many ways, featuring plenty of tension and some scares, which can be fun, but in terms of presentation and overall feel just not being very refined. To its credit, I’d consider its story, twists, and turns to be above average among its peers… just sort of going down its own little road by making you question what is happening, has happened, and may or may not be real. Clocking in at a solid handful of hours it’s at least not over too quickly but also doesn’t overstay its welcome, and if you’re just in the mood to get that tickle in the pit of your stomach as you search slowly just waiting for whatever may come next it’s not a bad package.
