One of the things that took me by surprise with Night Alone is how the game stayed with me after it was done, getting better in memory than it actually was to play thanks to a story that made the rough parts worth fighting through. Yomawari: Midnight Shadows clears those issues away and looks good doing it, effortlessly turning a quirky one-off into one of the best new horror series in a long time.
Yomawari: Midnight Shadows is a cute-looking survival horror game, with unexpected twists and a surprisingly dark narrative. The same unintuitive control scheme seen before can hinder the experience somewhat, but gamers familiar with those issues from the original Vita release should adapt in no time. The port over to the PS4 means that taking in the hand-drawn visuals is a treat, while loading times have also been almost eliminated altogether. Coupled with unsettling audio work, the ambiance is on point for giving a few scares. Check out Yomawari: Midnight Shadows, crank up the volume, and get ready for a thriller, just in time for Halloween.
Yomawari: Midnight Shadows doesn’t do a whole lot to stand out from its predecessor. However, it really doesn’t need to. It’s still an excellent horror game that will keep your blood pumping from start to finish. The lush and haunting hand-drawn visuals feel like a loving cross between htoLNiQ: The Firefly Diary and Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark. And the story, while simple, still manages to make you feel for its young protagonists. Simply put, if you liked the original game, then you’re bound to enjoy every bloodcurdling moment of this sequel. When all is said and done, Yomawari: Midnight Shadows is a ghoulish Halloween treat from Nippon Ichi Software that no survival horror fans should miss.
