Developer: Caustic Reality

Genres: Horror, Adventure

Infliction is an interactive nightmare, a horrific exploration of the darkness that can lurk within the most normal-looking suburban home. Wander through the remnants of a once-happy family, reading letters and journals, listening to voicemails, and piecing together clues to understand the terrible events that led you here. However, you are not alone. Something else has remained in this house, a being of infinite grief and rage. While you hunt for clues, it hunts you, waiting for its chance to unleash its anger on you. Can you survive long enough to find atonement? FEATURES You are not alone A restless AI enemy will be stalking you, and you really don’t want to be caught. Will you hide, or find some way to fight back? Warped reality Explore a realistic, interactive suburban house that gets more fractured and twisted the deeper you go. Piece it together Read letters, find diaries, and examine the precious mementos of a broken family to understand the terrible events that led you here. Almost too real The story is grounded in real-world domestic tragedy, the fears and hurts that we all know: broken hearts, betrayed trust, grief, and loss. Light and dark The power of Unreal renders a photorealistic environment with dynamic lights and shadows that can dazzle you or plunge you into darkness. Choose your challenge Standard difficulty will occasionally point you in the right direction, but in hard mode you will be on your own.

No Recommendation / Blank

Infliction is so middle-of-the-road you might get run over.

It's not groundbreaking in the technical department or in its gameplay, but it's a well focused game that follows the basic rules of horror. As such, it delivers what it promises.

Review in Spanish | Read full review

Infliction: Extended Cut is a solid horror experience that succeeds in its strong atmospheric design. However, it is marred with some severe audio issues that deeply affected the experience, particularly in the final act.

Infliction feels like a mash-up of elements from other, better-known games. However, a strong game loop and stellar sound design elevate Inflicted beyond being a tired retread. While the lighting is questionable at times, in general the visuals reveal an eye for detail. A fun photo mechanic also sets the game apart from its contemporaries. Infliction is well worth a look for horror fans, and those nostalgic for the early '90s.
