Past Cure is a first-person horror game that plays on your psychological senses.
The game has you playing as a retired soldier named Ian. He was captured and went through hours of painful torture and crazy science experiments which have left him in a destroyed and crippled mental states. He sees flashbacks of the time and nightmares all around. However, this has enabled him to use special abilities.
You’ll be able to manipulate time and also control objects from afar. I guess not all of the science experiments were bad. Some must’ve paid off. Getting astral projection isn’t necessarily a bad ability, eh?
The game has you searching for clues and answers. You explore a dark, damp building in search of the people who did this to you alongside your trusted brother. The game takes place in a prison that you’d think is abandoned, but guess again. Ian is torn between the real world and the nightmares he gets from his dreams, so the game blends dreams and reality into one experience.
Past Cure has a few scares that are quite unexpected and mixes both horror and stealth into one game. This isn’t a new concept or anything as many games have done this before- namely Amnesia.
However, there are also some parts where you need to use your abilities in order to solve puzzles as well. You’ll use gun battles and combos from your fists as well. You’ll have to use both action and stealth elements in order to progress.
If you’re a fan of some good psychological horror, you need to check out Past Cure. It’s more of a thriller game than a horror game, but it still has that scary element to it. It’s got monsters. And the graphics are extremely realistic. It also has a strong storyline element to it as well.
