    OMG, OMG! We've been waiting so long, and now you can play the first hour of Part II (exclusively on Steam) by opening the game and going to the main menu. Click on the demo to play!

    True Fear: Forsaken Souls (IHOG)

    Beware ye faint of heart, for herein lies the stuff of nightmares.

    True Fear: Forsaken Souls is by far the scariest IHOG ever made (at least that I'm aware of.)  Be aware that the Big Fish version's intro has been CENSORED, so if you're bothered by scary things... Well shoot, if you're bothered by scary things, then you shouldn't play this game!

    Options include separate sliders for Sound, Music, and Brightness, Full-screen vs. Windowed, Custom Cursor and three Difficulty settings.  In addition, you can choose whether there are sparkles on the collectibles, and whether or not there are hidden object scenes!

    This is a title that truly shines in every way.  The storyline and situations you find yourself in are actually frightening, it's adventure-heavy, the voice acting is surprisingly good, I really enjoyed the graphics, and the hidden object scenes are not the same-old, same-old that you'd expect from this type of game.

    HOS are sometimes your standard find-by-list fare, albeit with zoom-in areas that have their own, separate lists. You'll find, however, that many of the scenes have no lists at all.  Simply find items that you can interact with, and use them on the scene; repeat until you've found something useful to add to your inventory.

    There is a journal that keeps track of both the story and clues that you come across, as well as an interactive, insta-transport map.

    Collector's Edition Extras:

    • Integrated Strategy Guide
    • 15 Collectible Figurines, and each one that you find adds to the story (possibly in the non-CE, as well)
    • 3 Wallpapers
    • 5 Music Tracks (can be saved to hard drive)
    • Deleted Scenes - This is where you can see the original intro if you're a Big Fish player, as well as find info on three deleted characters
    • Alternative Reality - 8 new versions of scenes from the game
    • 25 Cutscenes
    • "Making of" sequence that shows how a scene goes from concept to fully-fleshed version, along with 18 concept art
    • 23 Replayable Puzzles
    • 10 Replayable Hidden Object Scenes (traditional list-style)
    • Bonus Chapter
    • As of this writing, August 22, 2018, the demo for Part II is available to play from the main screen of the game~! (Steam version only)

    Bonus Chapter:

    This extra chapter takes up right after the ending of the main game, and while it reveals some great extra information (and is very interesting to boot), it's not something you HAVE to play in order to understand the story.  The hidden object scenes are low-quality as compared to the main game, but that did not lessen my enjoyment - it was simply unexpected.

    True Fear: Forsaken Souls is a quality offering, and one that I enjoyed the heck out of.  I am looking forward to the soon-to-be-released Part II, and absolutely recommend this to those who love horror, hidden objects and figuring things out.  As this can be played WITHOUT hidden object scenes (by list), I also recommend it to those who love casual adventures~!
