Honey’s Anime was fortunate enough to grab a hold of Yomawari: Night Alone and review it for all of you fans out there, so be sure to check it out to get a closer look at what the spooky title is all about. Without going into too much detail, Yomawari: Night Alone follows a young girl who walks with her dog one night only for her dog to be involved in an accident. In a panic she runs home to tell her sister who then rushes out to find Poro, but then her sister disappears leaving the young girl alone and she must find out where these two are in the creepy streets.
The gameplay is so satisfying, so spooky that you’re never too sure what to expect at times since your attention is never firmly placed on one event. Your eyes scatter the streets to avoid imminent death from these creepy monsters that pop up out of the blue, and one hit kill you without warning. It’s a challenging yet rewarding game because you always find yourself backtracking, second guessing yourself, and then eventually dying all over again as you desperately try to search for clues to bring your soul to rest. Words alone can’t express how much fun we had with Yomawari: Night Alone, so be sure to hit up the Steam shop to grab a copy or even better take part in our latest Christmas giveaway!
