An intelligent, thought-provoking, and extremely creepy adventure, that proves that survival horror can be more than just shooting zombies.

This isn't a horror game in the purest sense of the word. There aren't any jump scares, yet there is a very real sense of dread as you chip your way through the story. It never fully lets up and, instead, allows itself to build until you're almost used to the oppressive paranoia.

After spending many hours in the explosive world of Destiny 2, Detention's simple but horrific tale has reminded me just how affecting video games can be. A game based on the oppressive regime of 1960's Taiwain may not be for everyone, but if you fancy a break from head shots and kill streaks then this debut title from Red Candle games comes highly recommended.

This is pure psychological terror. Detention comes to Nintendo Switch with the goal of hooking the player in its intense, but short, story. Its plot and context are the best aspects of this game by far.

A horror game that is not as deep as we would have liked, but manages to scare you while it lasts.

Despite a disappointing final act, this chilling horror story set in 1960s Taiwan burrows its way into your skull and, brilliantly, makes you anticipate the worst around every corner.

If it weren’t for a final act that stretched itself a little too thin for my liking, spooling out the denouement for longer than necessary, I’d have enjoyed almost every minute of Detention.

The most telling thing to say about Detention is that it carves its own niche into the videogame horror genre. It shows a maturity and storytelling finesse for much of its brief run that eludes many within its medium. Despite a slump in the final act, and a couple of coldly logical puzzles that feel out of place with the story, Detention is a smart and sophisticated survival horror that draws from reality to fuel fear.

An extremely well done story crafted inside a psychological horror game that nails its terrifying atmosphere. It might not be the longest game or even the best horror game, but it truly got under my skin at times, and that's one of the highest accolades I can give any title in the genre.

Detention intelligently mixes the traditional point and click mecanics with the anxious ambiance of the survival horror genre. Ta'wan-based Red Candle Studios delivers a clever lightning on a very dark period of its country history, which gives the game quite some originality.
