Black Rose is a free indie horror game first published in 2013.
Since the original release – it has been updated with new textures, storyline elements and other graphical components. The game has been also released on Steam in 2016.
The game is relatively short – but the first time I played it – this weekend – I spend more than 2 hours exploring the dark mansion/funeral home where the game takes place. You end up in this haunted abandoned funeral home in which those who die in fear or filled with hatred and other strong emotions – remain trapped and vengeful. You discover the tragic events that led to this dark atmosphere – and you encounter two of the most evil entities living here – Myrtle and Sullivan James.
The jump scares, the quick time events and the lack of lighting in the game make it enjoyable. There is a scoring system in which you can accumulate points by having close-calls. Closer you are to the entity hunting you, the more points you achieve. The game has two playable modes – Time Mode and Story Mode. In the time mode you have to quickly finish the game and obtain a certain score. In Story Mode – you can listen to fragments of the story through other character perceptions.
I recommend playing the game at night. Makes it more… vivid. Below is a full gameplay of the game – I just uploaded on Youtube. Enjoy.
