Εν τέλει, το Yomawari: Night Alone δε σπάει στεγανά, ούτε θα αλλάξει τα δεδομένα στο είδος των horror παιχνιδιών. Αν και το τέλος είναι σχετικά σύντομο και δεν δίνει εξηγήσεις για όλα όσα συνέβησαν, το ταξίδι είναι ατμοσφαιρικό, μυστηριώδες και γεμάτο αγωνία. Με ικανοποιητική διάρκεια που φθάνει τις 7-8 ώρες και άνετα σκαρφαλώνει σε διψήφιο αριθμό για αυτούς που θα θελήσουν να εξερευνήσουν κάθε σπιθαμή του χάρτη και να γίνουν μάρτυρες όλων των παραφυσικών γεγονότων, το συγκεκριμένο παιχνίδι αποτελεί ιδανική πρόταση για μερικά μοναχικά βράδια.

And so you forge on into the town, because there’s nothing else you can do. You collect pebbles to throw into corners in the hopes of distracting floating eyes that morph into balls of chomping death when they spot you and you hope you can free yourself from the tendril-like grip of the inky blank hand that’s snaked out of a sewer lid before the ghouls close in. There’s little to prepare you for the cavalcade of macabre secrets the town holds, and that any form of reason is in equal parts unexplained and lost somewhat in translation only adds to its unwholesome vibe. The girl’s evil town exists; it doesn’t need you to understand its origins or why there’s a burning corpse chilling behind the incinerator; these thing occur regardless of your understanding.

Yomawari: Night Alone is a cute, but bone-chilling game that will make players want to never walk their dogs at night, and if they do, have cell phones with flashlights on at all times.

Yomawari: Night Alone is at its best when it presents you with a challenge and gives you the time to think it out without having to worry about sudden death. Which is quite a rarity, unfortunately. Rather than scary, it can be frustrating. You can be on the precipice of success and find yourself dead, forced back to your last quicksave, all because of the occasionally unfair nature of the game. Which is unfortunate, because this game offers the perfect ambiance. The sights and sounds of this town pull you in, until one wrong move pulls you out. Yomawari is an interesting experience and one I’d recommend to people who enjoy exploring environmental puzzle games, but save often and keep moving.

Yomawari: Night Alone is a game that will be remembered more for its tone and story than gameplay, but that’s enough to recommend it. The PC port is clearly unoptimized from the Vita build, with issues like having to shoo the cursor off the screen every time you fire up the game, but the adventure of a little girl wearing a big red bow and a bunny backpack going out again and again into a haunted town is instantly engaging, hooking the player completely within the first couple of minutes. The variety of weird Japanese ghosts makes for a fantastically unique cast of threats and there are even plenty of harmless jump-scares just to keep you on your toes. While a bit rough and unpolished, Yomawari: Night Alone is a wonderfully spooky adventure that succeeds on pure heart.
