Tequila Works' teen-rated horror might surprise you with its shocks and creepy atmosphere, but it's a little thin.

GYLT is an adventure that, under the paradigm of an survival game, invites you to think about a real horror, the bullying. Its Tequila's more mature game, both in the narrative as in the playable and technical side, but it may feel a short game and not a very challenging one. As Stadia's first contact, it works like a charm.

Gylt is a solid but somewhat derivative adventure-horror game and an exclusive launch title for Google Stadia.

Gylt presents some bright ideas in its dark world even as its gameplay mechanics are often much too familiar.

Indie atmospheric adventure games are like candy to me, and I suspect some people are going to get a lot more out of Gylt than others. It's very much in the same spirit as Concrete Genie in that it's a short but mostly engaging romp that's best enjoyed by the right kind of audience.

GYLT introduces a new IP to a new system with some world building elements that hearken back to some of Tequila Works' previous titles, which isn't a bad thing at all.

GYLT won't creep out most genre veterans, but kids deserve quality horror stories too, and there's no better starting place in games than GYLT.

Gylt is a creepy, atmospheric stealth game with a relatable, socially-aware message that's hampered by its Stadia-exclusivity.

Gylt is a game that isn't too good or too bad to be memorable, both in terms of gameplay and narrative. A simple and easy adventure that can entertain anyone for some hours but that doesn't do anything relevant.

The first exclusive game for Stadia is not the one you always dreamt to see in the launch line-up for a new platform. Even if it's not that bad, is nothing to be excited about either.

Gylt is not the killer app exclusive that Stadia needs at launch, but it's a serviceable stealth horror game experience while it lasts.

The result is an always regular experience, if not for some well-conceived enigma and a good number of secrets to be discovered. Gylt is not a product to be completely thrown away, but in order to give character to its platform, Stadia needs other exclusive items.

Gylt is an intensely personal experience filled with average gameplay and overused tropes.
