Digital happiness push all the right buttons with a game that will make you think and possibly even be a little scared.

1 / 5.0

 After the first 15 or 20 minutes, Dreadout begins to overstay its welcome. It isn't effective as a fun game to play or as a scary game to experience. It quickly becomes one giant, tedious fetch quest, with very few legitimate scares throughout. With horror games, it is difficult to achieve balance between scares and gameplay, but in the case of Dreadout, neither element is effective, and the game truly feels unfinished as a result, even with the promise of future installments.

Without either a compelling cast or plot, there's little to draw the player into the mundane gameplay.
