NothingElse - A macabre Tale



    NothingElse - A macabre Tale's review

    Published: 2014-03-31, by Janel.

    Ultra-pixeled horror puzzle story

    • Creepy as can be
    • Leaves plenty to the imagination
    • Puzzles legitimately puzzling
    • Too minimalist for some
    • Little replay value

    "Pixellated minimalism gone creeptastic"

    The first admonitions from Ivan Zanotti's NothingElse implore you to play in the dark with headphones on. Oh yeah, one of those stories. If you love giving yourself the creeps from your head down to your vulnerable little toesies, this is definitely the app for you.

    You're a pixel kid in a pixel house, desirous of something to read. Maybe you should have taken the hint when the only book in the place was locked tight in a trunk? Or perhaps a clue would have been the note forbidding you from finding it? Regardless, to develop the story you're going to have to pay such prudent prods no heed, and plunge into a negative reality filled with obscure puzzles and inexplicable darkness. The illustration and story leave plenty to the imagination, a good thing in the horror genre since you'll fill it in with whatever sends the most shivers down your spine.

    It's a short story, but the puzzles are strange enough that it'll take some time to work them all out for yourself. Since it's linear, there's not much replay value.

    But hey, Ivan Zanotti's NothingElse is free, and will definitely give you the willies at least once.
