A night in the museum... of fear!
Shivers was a scary game, maybe, when it was released, but right now, after playing it, all I can say is, wow, this game is so funny! In the way the game is delivered, it is actually a bit on the video experience with bits that are interactive, though it is also has classic, standard, adventure portions. So expect an amalgam of puzzles, of looking for objects here and there, and then trying to find a place where to use them. The scary bits should have been delivered via the in game videos, but these are more funny than anything today. They would belong in a Troma movie without question, as they have that campy feel to them as well as having not that good a cast of actors. Anyway, I found my session with the game rather refreshing, but then again, I kind of like low quality 90esque ratty productions, so if you're into shiny, sparkly games, this thing here might not be for you. This is one for the lovers of grit and involuntary fun, of which this one has lots! Kind of reminded me of Phantasmagoria, though I must admit, the tone of that one was properly more serious.
