Lost in The Dark is a creepy third person Victorian era stealth horror adventure where you help a little orphan girl who’s trapped in her own psyche, attempting to escape before she is lost in the darkness forever.
In Lost in The Dark you take control of a little orphan girl who wakes up in a large 19th century London orphanage, with no recollection of who she is or how she got there. You must now make your way through the orphanage, gathering key objects that will unlock passageways, whilst avoiding the freaky shadowy entity that stalks the halls.
You have no weapons, but you do have a small lantern which can be used to light your way and clear shadowy barriers from doors. Interestingly, it also has some handy uses when you turn it off, allowing you to evade the gaze of the shadowy entity and pass through some doors. However, you can only keep the light extinguished for a short time – stay in the darkness for too long and you’ll be lost to it.
Lost in The Dark takes around 20 minutes to play through and is a very impressive experience from start to finish. The visual design is fantastic, with atmospheric lighting, a terror inducing monster and a Victorian era environment that’s packed full of detail. It avoids cheap jump scares and manages to instil a deep sense of dread as you help your tiny little orphan girl make her way through a big shadow-filled mansion. Highly recommended.
