Visage is one of the many horror games that strive to imitate P.T. For those who don’t know, P.T is a short playable teaser of the sadly canceled Silent Hills. The short little teaser didn’t have much of a story or gameplay, but no one can deny the atmosphere and horror factors were through the roof. Ever since Silent Hills cancellation, fans and game developers have taken it upon themselves to re-create what was lost. Some achieved this decently like Infliction. Some needed more work like Layers of Fear. So, where does Visage fit on the spectrum?
After putting 10+ hours into it, I can safely say Visage is the best P.T clone out to date. Visage is an excellent horror game that captures the spirit of P.T with it’s haunting atmosphere, subtly, and compelling mystery. However, Visage does feel like a culmination of the decades worth of horror games. So, no point for originality, but it does (almost) everything spectacular well that it can stand on it’s own.
