Back around mid-July, VIS Games released Pineview Drive on Steam, a game in which you return to a house on the titular street that has stood empty for years after visiting a friend named Linda twenty years ago. There are rumors that no one has been able to stay in the house for longer than thirty days. Basically you have thirty days to solve the mystery as to what happened to Linda.
Pineview Drive is basically a horror game without the violence. There are no monsters, no zombies, and nothing will attack you. The game will create "phantastic impressions in your head" through its sounds and visual effects. Sounds interesting. If you're wondering if $19.99 is too much for a thirty day stay in an abandoned house, a demo is now available on Steam that basically contains a more intense version of the first day. While I haven't checked out the demo myself yet, I do plan to do so and will report back on my thoughts after I have done so.
The official Pineview Drive Demo is now available: http://store.steampowered.com/app/319130/?l=english
Jump right into the abandoned mansion lying on the dead end of Pineview Drive. This Demo contains a more intense version of the first chilling day of the full version's 30 in-game days - packed with some of the creepiest effects and events that Pineview Drive has to offer.
About Pineview Drive:
