Those Who Remain is a psychological thriller that takes place in Dormont, a small town in the US. Dormont appears to be a regular and typical American town at first glance, but it is however cursed by a demon who shrouded everything in darkness. Most of Dormont’s population has been trapped inside the darkness, with no means of escape. Edward Turner is just an ordinary man with a troubled past, who arrives in the wrong place at the wrong time. But he soon finds out that something is very wrong in Dormont. There are strange creatures roaming in the dark, killing everyone that gets close. The only way to survive is by staying in the light. The danger in the dark is not the only thing at play in Dormont. There are strange portals that emanate a bright light, that seem to bring anyone that goes through them to another place, similar yet different, apparently unreal but very real. Actions taken in one place have repercussions in the other.

Those Who Remain features an eerie atmosphere, inventive puzzles, and some moments of genuine tension via its shape-shifting world, but fussy controls, one-dimensional stealth, and a narrative that lacks cohesion prevent it from stepping completely out of the darkness and into the spotlight.
Those Who Remain had loads of potential but, sadly, it just missed the mark. While it tries to fill a hole that Silent Hill hasn't been able to fill in recent years, and although some people will love it, it just feels like there was quite a bit of room for improvement. The annoying lack of stealth mechanics, the repetitious opening and closing of drawers, and the frustrating checkpoint placement mean that Those Who Remain isn't able to capitalise on its many promising aspects.
Those Who Remain non è infatti il survival horror che prometteva di essere, rivelandosi in definitiva un puzzle game sin troppo schematico e poco moderno, incapace sia di eccellere nella qualità degli enigmi, sia nel proporre un impianto da survival horror degno di menzione, che cade vittima di una realizzazione sin troppo approssimativa e manchevole in parecchi aspetti d’importanza primaria.
