Phantasmal is a terrifying procedurally generated first persone roguelike first person horror game inspired by Dead Space, Silent Hill, Metro and Resident Evil that we first featured last May.
Phantasmal has now received an update which makes the game even harder! There’s still plenty of weaponry, from planks of wood to machine guns, but you should only use them as a last resort. Stealth is now always the best option especially when dealing with the blind enemies, use crouch (L-Ctrl) to sneak past them as even walking will generate too much noise. Also keeping the torch switched off will lower your chances of detection, even to creatures with sight.
Watch out for the Darkchilde, a being that’s invisible while you have your torch turned on. If you hear a freaky Laugh loop then it is nearby, or catch a glimpse of it during a lightning strike you should turn your flash-light off immediately. Otherwise the screen will go red, you’ll start to hallucinate, then die. Also, creating too much noise from fighting, running around, or knocking into things will eventually wake the sleeper (sort of like a Pyramid Head), which will hunt you down and terminate you with extreme prejudice.
Stay very quiet and use your weapons and flash-light only when necessary and you MIGHT survive this procedurally generated nightmare. You’ll need a steady nerve and a LOT of luck on your side though. Make no bones about it, this is a very hard game.
UPDATE: This Alpha Is No Longer Available
