Critic Reviews for The Alien Cube

While there's something a bit disappointing about yet another entry to the Cthulhu mythos that doesn't quite manage to translate its best features into the video game medium, there are hints and moments of other smaller Eldritch creatures that keep things interesting. In particular, the way The Alien Cube ultimately handles its final moments is incredibly satisfying with its visuals. The story may not stick the landing for some, but the overall experience is dark, engaging, beautiful, and disgusting. The Alien Cube is a love letter to the genre and is a strong choice for the fans who are on the hunt for a non-literary medium that manages to get Lovecraft mostly right.

If you're willing to turn a blind eye to poor-quality dubbing and some imperfections that involve both the gameplay and the technical sector, this game will guarantee you a handful of hours of fun in a world that any fan of H. P. Lovecraft would love madly.

The Alien Cube is a highly recommended horror narrative adventure for those who sympathize with and are consumers of this way of playing stories, enhanced by its excellent visual part, along with a very careful sound. The story is not long, it is not complicated in its progress, and the game system is simple and without great challenges, perfect to enjoy a four hours of a Lovecraftian horror story from another world.

An entertaining Lovecraftian horror story that will hook and scare us in equal parts.

All in all, would I recommend squaring up with The Alien Cube? The best way I can describe this game is a very thin slice from an authentic Lovecraftian pie. It doesn’t entirely look the part, but you’ll take a bite and know exactly what you’re sinking your teeth into and probably end up reminded why you love this flavor of horror. From the surreal environments to the indescribable horrors after your blood, it’s the stuff known and loved by the Lovecraft community. Be warned though, that while the flavor tastes the part, The Alien Cube‘s optimization issues and occasionally lacking gameplay can make it tough to swallow. That said, if you can forgive a few missteps and have a hankering for hellish horrors, it’s worth digging into – especially when you consider its asking price.

The Alien Cube is a short and simple game that focus to make us experience fear and suspense throught the story. If you like Lovecraft's literature and all the universe that has been formed around it, this game will not disappoint you.
