Remember those old-school PlayStation 1 graphics that had a charm of their own? Well, Fear the Spotlight brings back those memories but with a modern twist. This third-person survival horror adventure isn’t just about nostalgia; it’s an interactive game. One that also draws inspiration from legends like Silent Hill and Resident Evil.

The Fear the Spotlight story revolves around two friends – you and Amy. After being intrigued by supernatural mysteries, you both decide to delve into the unknown. So you perform a séance in your school after hours. But as you might expect, things don’t go as planned. Suddenly, you find yourself apart from Amy, and you’re going into an eerie part of the school. Which has also been shut off for years due to a heart wrenching fire incident.

What makes Fear the Spotlight stand out is its attention to detail. It takes inspiration from a bygone era, the settings have a detailed design. The dilapidated hallways, rusting lockers, and the omnipresent foggy setting. Due to make you feel like you’re truly there. Making your way through the ruins, with an obvious sense of urgency.

One of the unique features is the point and click mode. Unlike a typical horror title where you run and gun, here, you’ll find yourself solving puzzles and interacting with the setting to find clues. Think of it as a clever blend of classic adventure meets suspenseful horror.

Now, if you’re used to battling monsters head-on, Fear the Spotlight offers a different kind of challenge. Instead of fighting, you’ll need to strategize and sneak past these terrifying creatures. Since this adds an adrenaline pumping tension, as each step you take might be your last. Trust me, it’s exhilarating! Try the Linux Demo on Steam.

A special mention goes to the surreal soundscape that adds to the story. The subtle noises, echoing footsteps, and ambient music don’t just play in the background. They also become a character in their own right, enhancing the overall mood.

If you’re wondering about its credibility, Fear the Spotlight was featured on the 2022 Haunted PS1 Demo Disc. An honour that only quality games get.

Now, you might be thinking: such a comprehensive title must have be the creation of a big team. Fear the Spotlight is the brainchild of just two talented people. The passion and dedication are evident in every corner, every shadow, and every puzzle you encounter. Since they crafted this third-person survival horror adventure, with love.
