Bitter Tides is a psychological horror game that combines both puzzle and some stealth into one surreal experience.
It takes place in a dream world where you remember some incidents in your life and monsters run amok. The game is currently in a demo phase where you explore a scary dream through a puzzle adventure as you explore an old abandoned church. The atmosphere is spot-on and what you’d expect from a horror game with some very surreal textures and visuals.
The audio is also very well-done and ambient. It gives you this sense of apprehension and dread as you play through the game that constantly makes you want to shut it off but for some reason, you can’t. I could get through the first 10 minute without taking a break.
The horror itself is mainly through the atmosphere and a few well-placed jump scares here and there. It makes you really wonder what’s going on as everything is anything but reality. The game really puts you into a dream-like trance as you try to solve the puzzles. You’ll be scared to even wander around in order to explore what the area has to offer but you must if you wanna solve the puzzles in order to progress.
If you’re a fan of surreal horror, you need to play this demo of Bitter Tides.
