Hi there, I just recently played through the demo for Pamali and I quite enjoyed it. The game certainly wastes no time in trying to unsettle you, from the moment I first walked into the house I immediately had chills down my spine.
The atmosphere is set up very well, and I love the fact that as you interact with the environment more, things begin changing. Visual wise the game is very pretty, and makes excellent use of the dark colour palette, further adding to the horror experience. The audio really shines here as well, the game makes excellent use of the binaural effect to really pull you in and make it feel as though what's in front of you is really happening. I also liked that the game carries a message with it, to always try and respect the dead, as you can never be sure who's watching or listening.
I have two gripes that I picked up while playing. One is that the game is just so dark, I tried messing with the brightness slider in the options but that didn't seem to do anything for me. My second gripe is with the notes, the handwriting on some of them is almost illegible or just way too small, giving the player the ability to see a clear text version as well as the original would be wonderful.
All in all, I think this is an excellent start to what looks to be a terrifyingly good horror game. Atmosphere is nailed, it looks great and the sound is spot on.
I hope you don't mind but I made a let's play video of the demo for my channel.
Cheers and best wishes to you,
