Imscared - A Pixelated Nightmare
by Ivan Zanotti
Imscared is much more an experience than a game. In Imscared, you interact with an entity that apparently lives as data, therefore, the data can do things on your computer, such as create files, open it’s .exe file, open images in your browser, or close itself. Throughout the game, the entity (as we know as ‘White Face’) speaks to you through different means. We mostly interact in White Face’s world, one that it seems to have created itself (?), and during our interaction White Face chooses to let us see things at different times, learn things that it needs us to know, and interact with us seemingly out of desire for communication with another person.
The game becomes more terrifying as you progress, but also your feelings about White Face begin to change (it’s hard not to comment on anything!)
I have seen the game featured on many ‘top freeware’ or ‘indie horror’ game lists of 2012 and it’s very deserving of it’s title. Imscared is tough to explain, it’s a game that you just have to play, and you can only play it once.
