I dub this game GASLIGHT SIMULATOR because it felt that all throughout the
story, poor David was being gaslit by EVEREYONE! IN a story where youre a
psychiatrist looking to help five patients discover what happened to him, your
biggest challenge is figuring out why David even BOTHERS to stay!
The graphics were fine for the time period, the music was okay, and the voice
acting was subpar. The gameplay was okay, but it could have been better. But the
story is THE worst part, even up to the SyFy quality ending (you know, the
endings that just end with little to no resolution). I CANNOT recommend this
game unless you are just curious or it's on a DEEEEEEP discount!
