FOBIA: St. Dinfna Hotel is a first person survival horror game set in the ruins of a hotel that’s full of dark secrets.
In FOBIA: St. Dinfna Hotel you take on the role of a young journalist who plans to investigate the rumored supernatural events at a city in Treze Trilhas, Brasil. After staying there for a week with nothing happening and your contact not showing up, you’re ready to pack up and go home, but then you awaken to find your room has been ransacked and outside your room, the hotel is in ruins…
The St. Dinfna Hotel literally looks like a bomb has hit it and you’ll need to search around for useful objects and solve puzzles if you want to escape. There is a rather large problem in the shape of the ghost of a young girl though – she roams the hotel, causes lights to go out and causes radiation burns if she gets too close. You may want to avoid her if you value your life!
The current build of FOBIA: St. Dinfna Hotel takes around 45 minutes to play through and has a nice mixture of psychological horror and puzzle solving. There are a couple of issues (the voice acting isn’t great and the power outages are more annoying than scary), but on the whole it’s a very promising game. The visuals are superb, the setting is interesting, the puzzles are well designed and being stalked by a supernatural kid is always going to be scary. Welcome to the Hotel St. Dinfna, you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave!
