Exploring themes of horror, personal relationships, and personal agency, The Charnel House Trilogy weaves a fantastic tale that is well-written, and relatively well-acted. As more and more of the truth started to become clear nearing the game's conclusion, I found myself completely drawn in.

Nevertheless, The Charnel House Trilogy gave out a thrilling ride that started out slow and eventually picked up pace until everything went crazy. Personally, I do not mind if the game gets a sequel as the trilogy felt like it was just a glimpse of what is more to come. I do recommend to those gamers that aren't really fond of horror games, like me, to try out this game as its scare factor is quite bearable and that it is dwelling more on unravelling the mysteries of our protags, the train, and Augur Peak.

A superb piece narrative experience that never outstays its welcome, but does leave you wanting more.

A hauntingly complex story full of creepy characters means that The Charnel House Trilogy is an indie title you need to keep your eye out for on PC.

Short but very much worth the time and price of admission, The Charnel House Trilogy should be on any adventure gamer's playlist.

The Charnel House Trilogy is a great rainy afternoon pulp horror game, with just enough creepy imagery and top-notch atmosphere to mull over in the days after. It ends up feeling like a short, albeit exciting, prologue to a great adventure game.

'The Charnel House Trilogy' is a point and click genre game that will please fans of eerie atmosphere and casual gameplay, but will likely fall flat for others.

The Charnel House Trilogy sets up an intriguing mystery but doesn't quite complete it. While some issues hold the game back somewhat, there is no question this was an enjoyable five to six hour diversion akin to reading a good story.

The Charnel House Trilogy is game that ebbs and flows. It's a game that sucks you in and then confuses you. It takes your hand and intentionally leads you into uncertainty and fear.

The story, music and background art are stand out winners even if the lack of puzzles and voice acting get a little painful
