SINISTER WITHIN: DECAY: Investigate an Abandoned Building as a Menacing Entity Lurks in These Rooms
Sinister Within: Decay is an indie psychological horror puzzle game being produced by QuocMT(21Studios) and Tarba Paul Cornel, which is currently in the development stage, but a demo was published on February 27th of this year, and is available on the itch.io platform. Sinister Within is set sometime in the year 2009, and you control Matei Enache, an investigator who took on the case of John Manson, a psychopath who killed his wife and entire family in 2003. When finding clues and evidence against John, something goes wrong. wrong and, after a while unconscious, you wake up inside a strange apartment. Now, your objective is to investigate the place, find the clues against John and, it seems, escape from a menacing entity.
The game here works as a kind of interactive teaser for the game the creators are producing, in the same way that the famous Playable Teaser (P.T.) was for the canceled Silent Hills. The gameplay is very focused on exploration and puzzle: here you have to explore the whole building, one apartment at a time, looking for items like batteries or keys to open new areas. We also have night vision here, which serves precisely to see better in darker areas. In terms of graphics and visuals, Sinister Within: Decay manages to be impressive, presenting a very realistic style without needing much. In the end, it's a great horror teaser that is fun for its exploration and scary because of the supernatural moments that appear here.
