Still Wakes the Deep is a wonderfully authentic Scottish horror story

Still Wakes the Deep is a short but effective game with brilliant performances, a deeply atmospheric setting and fun creature effects. Critics of the hand-holding found in the 'walking sim' genre likely won't be converted, but those looking for an engaging story they can play through in a night or two will strike oil with this one.

  • A deeply atmospheric setting
  • Creature designs are great
  • Brilliant, authentically Scottish performances
  • An engaging, often darkly funny script
  • Will be too short for some
  • Holds the player's hand throughout
4 / 5
