World Of Horror is on Early Access
With a world overwhelmed by its vast, detailed graphics, retro gaming is a fun break and a nostalgic reference, especially for old gamers who didn't come into direct contact with high-end gaming systems as this technology was not yet available.
This nostalgia has come to cover the World of Horror, from Panstasz and Ysbryd Games, which promises to keep you on edge, with the element of the unknown and horror. The 1-bit horror game, inspired by Junji Ito and H.P. Lovecraft is in early access and we recommend you try it.
So you start in a Japanese city, where fear and death lurk in every corner, along with disgusting monsters and mysterious figures. By choosing one of the characters available, you are faced with 5 random stories from a wide range of quests that you must complete. Being an RPG title, World Of Horror is based on strategy and repetition, with puzzles and battles that will force you and definitely impress you. The various encounters you'll find appear on black and white cards made in MS Paint, like the rest of the game, and their evolution affects your stats.
They are not related to each other, but your equipment and your health are transferred to each case, so an item from the previous mission can help you in the next. You need luck, strategic thinking, and it is very important to explore every little thing, as it can be very useful at another time. From one point on, you will be able to distinguish which stories lead to a battle, which will give you health and which equipment.
One thing to note is that the creators warn that the game contains a lot of graphic scenes and situations. This means your eyes will see a lot of gore that lurks everywhere, so you should have a strong stomach. In case you feel uncomfortable, stop playing immediately.
What the World Of Horror certainly has to offer are the difficult and awkward circumstances you will face. Decisions will be difficult and you will never know what the consequences of your decision will be, especially if you are one of those who like to try their luck at all times.
As mentioned briefly above, the whole game is designed in MS Paint. Unless you try the game you can't understand the awe at the detail that the creators have given to the game. It is really a product that respects the gaming period it is inspired by and this is evident throughout.
Of course, in the Early Access phase, the game has some bumps, but we expect it to be fixed with its full release. What will probably not change is the repetition of the various situations, which may at some point be tiring.
World Of Horror will be released on PC, Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch later in 2020 and we look forward to seeing the final product and re-evaluating it.
