Albino Lullaby: Episode 1 offers a genuinely fresh take on the horror genre, with a bright color palette, a topsy turvy environment, and nuanced enemies. In spite of its low points, it's definitely worth experiencing. With time it should become more polished, but for now if you want to play it, you'll have to brace yourself for bugs.

Playing Albino Lullaby, you'll begin to feel like so many of the people you may have tried to convert into understanding the surrealist media the game so desperately wants to evoke; you'll raise an eyebrow, and think "that's it?"
