Based on WOLF RPG Editor engine and a three piece volume game series by Uri Team, The Crooked Man is the first installment of the series called The Strange Man Series.
The Crooked Man is one seriously sick horror game, and if you are trying to look for horror in all the wrong places, we mean all the expensive and overrated places, we would seriously like to literally beg you to go and LOOK for some indie game developers on Steam or something!
There they have master craftsmen and individual people who have done the horror in bazillion times less resources and dickishness than those smug high end publishers of the mainstream!
The Crooked Man is one, very perfect kind of, horror game that makes you jump, cry and astonish over the simple fact that yes, video games can convey serious emotions too dammit!
David Hoover a troubled teen of teenage is troubled for many reasons, and it does not help when he gets a change of place. There as soon as he gets in the new house, like the old fashioned way, strange events begin to take place!
Obviously because that teen had not seen any horror flick or Netflix extravaganzas he tries to explore of that house and its owner for some serious answers.
What he gets to eventually is The Crooked Man!
TCM is one sick hellraiser and that IS saying something consider the fact that TCM does not have any billion dollars of resources behind it, not many tech savvy hordes of geeks behind it, not any evil corporate thinking he is a great mastermind of some sort in his mind, while twirling his mustache behind it, nothing at all!
But a dedicated team of programmers, an open source engine and loads of desire to be the best!
The gameplay plays how you can imagine it to be after all this, simple and yet impactful. It makes you jump very often, it makes you cry in sentences even, yes it DOES that what Metal Gear Solid and Final Fantasy can’t even hope for!
The sound the music and the game progress is all very well and truly a perfect part of a horror game.
It is based on Japanese horror style of which I am not even gonna speak an alphabet about here…coz respect of lunacy!
But all in all it is so simple and yet so terrifying game, not to mention we get a villain that holds its own against the like of The Pyramid Head from Silent Hill 2 and even The Slender Man!
Developed by Uri, a team of individual programmers for PC it was released in May 2015.
Probably one of the most engaging and stimulating horror game of them all, available for FREEEEEEE!
