Review: Yomawari: Midnight Shadows

October 27, 2017 1 min read

Yomawari: Midnight Shadows begins with a simple instruction: "Focus only on this screen. From this point on, do not divert your eyes from this screen." My initial response was something like, "Suuuuure, okay, game." Six hours later, I realized I never did look away from the screen. Yomawari is undoubtedly horror-filled, but both Night Alone and Midnight Shadows are beautiful to look at, with gameplay that's so engrossing I felt the need to focus on every detail.

Like its predecessor, Midnight Shadowsbegins with a morbid shock. Within the first few minutes, you're given a clear indication of what you're in for. Nippon Ichi has delivered another isometric horror adventure that's equal parts gruesome and lovely.
