Whatever it is, it is desperate, desperate to get into my room..?
I jumped out from my seat and immediately rushed to the door, because i realized, if i did not immediately take action like opening the door, this disturbing sound will never stops!
As i opened the door the sounds stopped abruptly. A small and white figure slipped into my room fast from beneath my feet and to the small seat below the window.
The window itself was opened, cold night wind was blowing into the room.
I closed the door again. And walked slowly to my bed this time. I lay down, pull the blanket up to my chin and closed my eyes. It was so dark in my room since i do not turn my lights on when i am sleeping.
The small white figure stirred for a moment, going round and round and round, as if anxious trying to find a resting place.
I opened my eyes a little, to peek. The small white figure has stopped turning in rounds, it settled down with a loud sighing sounds and at last it started to moan again, as if seeking my attention.
My body started to feel achy and my head in pain. I screamed in the middle of the night,"Westin! Sleep!"
The white figure stopped as if in shock. It bark softly and slowly it lay down on the floor and sleep.
I know my dog is always a nutcase whenever i forgot to let him inside my room at night...
what the heck...i am supposed to write reviews for a computer game!
Anyway, the story above generated from an idea that i got after playing the game Ghost in the sheet.
The title sounds scary right? ghost...in the sheet...but i tell you, this is the most unscary horror adventure game ever! It is even funny!
The character inside this game are all ghosts, from shadows to monster to apparitions.
The story and idea of this game is brilliant. I am amazed at how many talented game developers out there these days! And most of them are new! The old ones that are great mostly are legendaries game designers, who have designed serial of successful games such as The elder scroll, The Sims, Nancy Drew, The Broken Swords, etc.
Inside this game, i am playing as a ghost who wears sheet (not shit) although sometimes i associate those 2 words inside the game and it becomes something really funny...
There is no inventory system. Because as a ghost i cannot hold on to objects. to move objects, i have to use a paranormal ability, such as telekinesis, etc. As the game venture on, i have more and more paranormal abilities, from creating wind and electricity, to magically eavesdropping.
The story is nice, the audio guy REALLY SAVES this game. Because even though the environments are OK, they do not have any cinematics, or close up view talking, i mean with their mouth open and with their expression shows characters.
Seriously, the only cinematic they have is at the end of the game when the machine starts to work.No character animation whatsoever. And the only character shown in the game that we can actually see, is a headless man, a naked man with a cuttlefish like face who just sits there, and an apparition, the rest are either not seen, locked in a locker, or only a shadow.
Anyway this game is still good to play, not very complicated puzzles, not scary or violent or blood soaking horror adventure, no crazy psychopath, or psychologically y disturbing.
If only they make some animations and cinematics, it will add up a lot to the quality of the game.
And from the ending, maybe there will be another one coming up?
