UnderDread – Quick Game Review

UnderDread – Quick Game Review
UnderDread (PC [Reviewed])
Developer: Dodge Roll
Publisher: Devolver Digital

The game is a linear atmospheric adventure/walking simulator horror type of game and took me about 4 hours to complete.

  • the erie background music and sound effects do a good job at keeping the game atmospheric
  • immersive adventure/walking simulator gameplay
  • the story makes sense, and gives your purpose
  • minor issues noclipping though certain types of pillars (most people won’t notice this unless you explore) – NOW FIXED
  • there are some bugs, that have a negative impact on the immersive gameplay which include some graphical glitches and tears in a few spots, inventory text improperly positioned – SOME FIXED
  • purpley-pink screen [of death?!] a few times in one specific area
  • dissatisfying ending

Overall, despite the bugs, I still enjoyed the atmospheric gameplay and thought it was worth the playthrough However, with the current bugs as they are, I cannot recommend paying the full price. I have spoken with one of the developers, and they are going to look into the issues I’ve mentioned here. Hopefully, they will patch soon, and I will revise this review!
