Thursday Impressions: Lone Survivor

Lone Survivor is a 2D survival horror game about an unnamed character. It takes place in some post-apocalyptic world where almost everything is mutated or dead. The character finds hints here and there that he may not be the only survivor, but it's quite likely he is.

The game creates an atmosphere of dread, as the more you play, the more confused the character becomes. He's constantly afraid to sleep or venture too far from his home, for fear that he'll forget whatever he had been trying to do. His main goal is to find another living person (not one of those mutated nightmares) so that he does not have to die alone.

Verdict: Keep playing... maybe.
Lone Survivor is pretty darn creepy. I want to see how the story turns out, but I don't know if I want to take the frightening journey to get there.
