This anthology of adventure-esque stories is varied, and perhaps creepy, but not necessarily satisfying
I wanted to open this review saying that I appreciate indie games that come to the party trying to do their own thing their own way. Respect. I know it’s a risk since you don’t have a pre-made audience waiting for their known subgenre fix. The Creepy Syndrome absolutely doesn’t fit into any easy mold, being a sort of anthology of a handful of odd stories that each play out quite a bit differently in terms of their look and style. Work one story in more of a point-and-click adventure mode only to find yourself wandering through some sort of labyrinth in another. The themes and certainly the overall feel of everything do tend to get you a bit out of your comfort zone, if only for the fact that you’re really left not knowing what to expect next. Whether it all comes together to form a cohesive and satisfying whole would be a fair question, but I can’t fault the team behind this for their effort.
