The Long Reach Reviews
More of a Psychological experience for the mature gamer who wants a change of pace while still taxing the grey matter. At £11.99, it's worth every penny.
A deeply layered story with the scares to match, The Long Reach brings back the basics of psychological-horror by keeping players both intrigued and nervous until the very end.
The Long Reach is around 5-6 hours long, and it will depend on if you have some experience with the point and click adventure genre so that you can solve some of the more obscure puzzles in the game. I feel that the game is the perfect length since it tells its story, keeps you engage from start to finish, and it does not overstay its welcome. Be sure to check it out on Nintendo Switch!
The Long Reach offers a slice of horror to the adventurous and puzzling among us, presenting a well-told and gripping story through its range of dialogue and optional interactions. Despite minor glitches and perhaps not offering much in the way of new content to the genre, it finds itself as a well-made and engaging first release for developers Painted Black Games, and I look forward to seeing their future work.
Good debut of Painted Black Games with a personal and intimate work.

Considering that The Long Reach is the first title developed by Painted Black Games, I feel comfortable saying it's going to be a great success. The story is intriguing and the puzzles are a lot of fun to solve, and I look forward to seeing what the studio does next!
What The Long Reach may occasionally lack in originality, it more than makes up for in inventiveness, personality, and bubbling slow-burn horror chills. This is a well-written, atmospheric horror adventure, and it deserves your attention.
