Rating Summary
This is a survival-horror game in which players assume the role of a child confronting his trauma in the form of nightmare experiences. From a top-down perspective, players explore strange realms, collect items/memories, solve puzzles, and defeat monstrous entities. While players can avoid most enemies by using stealth (i.e., sneaking around them, distracting them), some boss creatures must be defeated with objects or other elements. In one sequence, players can electrocute a monster, resulting in screams of pain; another fight prompts players to destroy eyeball-like objects/protrusions, resulting in small splashes of blood. One entity appears as a female figure with an exposed breast. Story elements make occasional references to a father's alcoholism.
