Subtlety is not the strong point of the demo of Dark Deception, a first person Unity arcade game by Glowstick Games, but it is a nerve-wracking piece of Pac-Man as survival horror. A bit like a heap of interesting parts that just needs more development to fully coalesce, this is one that scary game lovers should watch out for.

Scary as hell, but somehow less fulfilling than FPS Man. It's improved by the fact that

Slenderman style, the Monkeys appear to warp around.

Also,

Discovering that there are more than one of them

can be a bit of a trip.

This is the evil offspring of Pac-Man and a fever dream. I love the voice acting but the line

Monkey see, monkey kill!

gets old quickly. I wish the noise of collecting the soul shards was quieter, it's hard to hear where the monsters are when you're running through them. And there wasn't much of a payoff at the end for completing the level. Hopefully the full game will be more rewarding.

Has anyone found any secrets or figured out what the big red drawing is for?

Secrets appear to be found by

just checking every door you run by. Some doors break down revealing floating folders that probably are intended to unlock something in the full game. They don't do anything here.

I think the big red drawing just marks where you started. And the creators say that there are a lot more voice acting lines, they only put a few in the demo.

I've got to say, as well-done as it is (and it is), I really am not feeling the horror aspects. The music to me is kind of comical, and in the end all you're really doing is playing Pac Man in 3D (with three lives, even!)

Of course, I didn't find FPS Man creepy in the least, either, so maybe it's just me.

The portal next to you when you start uses the Silent Hill seal graphic. (aka Halo of the Sun)
