Wake Up (Complete) – Old-School Survival Indie Horror

Wake Up (Complete) – Old-School Survival Indie Horror

Game Review

Wake Up is a horror game that’ll instantly remind you of the good old days when survival horror wasn’t mainstream.

Remember games like Resident Evil and Silent Hill with their fixed camera angles and tank controls? Wake Up is a recreation of it as you wake up in a low-poly PS1-era dream world. Your only objective is a navigate the world and get through the nightmare. It involves puzzles, monsters, and tons of weird trippy mixed reality scenes.

The game is very short and only takes about 20 minutes to complete. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t deliver the horrifying experience you’d expect from an old-school horror game. The audio and visuals are spot-on and the ambiance will just have you frozen in fear at some parts. The game plays like a dream where you need to travel to various locations with no recollection of why you’re there and what you’re doing. As you progress, the game gets more and more freaky.

If you’re into retro horror games, try out Wake Up.

ProsCons
  • Old-school fixed camera
  • Fantastic audio and visuals
  • Retro horror inspired by the classics
  • Pretty short game experience

I play the newest to the crappiest indie games and filter them for the rest of the crew.

In other words, I’m a bottom-feeder. Why do I volunteer for this trash?
