The game also includes a museum-like behind the scenes feature that can be unlocked after you’ve beaten it for the first time, something I wish more games would do. I was pleasantly surprised by Infliction, and if you like horror games I think you will be, too.
Infliction: Extended Cut is a solid option for fans of first-person horror, but it's hard to shake the feeling of inferiority when compared to other offerings in the genre. It doesn't do much wrong, but Infliction feels derivative and more focus on the detective aspect would have served the game well in the end.
Infliction is by no means perfect, and it has its own handful of jarring quirks that are bountiful in the indie horror genre, calling back to those early YouTube days mentioned in the introduction. However, it benefits from a captivating story, a lack of reliance on jump-scares, and its responsive technical prowess.
