"...it sets a fine mood, has puzzles to break up the wandering and is a promising first release."

"...there were pretty good puzzles in this game and I enjoyed solving them ... it did have a story in the end and it did have some intense moments in the end..."
"Now it would be easy to dismiss Into the Gloom’s bland colour scheme and retro-styling as not being scary, but you would be dead wrong. I have said in the past that a game’s environment and atmosphere are far more important than visuals could ever hope to be, and this game PROVES it!"
"The first thing dispensed with from other horror games is the perspective, Into the Gloom is first person while other horror games rely on 3rd person viewing. Secondly, the game world is pretty much flat shaded polygon in design with minimal use of color- this really adds to the atmosphere."
