Matti pointed out the game’s nostalgic lo-fi aesthetic, which invites horror fans to fill in the blanks:
The game has strong influences from the 4:3 world of the 90s, is reminiscent of games like the original Silent Hill, and has even a similar feel to a horror game classic Alone in the Dark . . . It uses the grainy image with a clever vintage filter to create an atmosphere that is familiar to the aforementioned titles.
