ESH | Maid of Sker Review
Sound is one of the most crucial aspects of any horror experience. Games use sound to great effect by ramping up the tension using the music and sound effects. Since the player inhabits the body of the protagonist while playing a horror game, every creak in the floorboard will leave you on edge. Wales Interactive, purveyor of great FMV games like The Complex and Late Shift, are certainly not new to horror, having previously released Don’t Knock Twice. Their latest release, Maid of Sker, is both an excellent example of how sound can be integral to a horror experience but is also a love letter to survival horror from a crew that clearly loves the genre.
