Whenever I think back to old Scooby-Doo cartoons, when the group of heroes reveal the true identity of the monster at the end of the episode, it’s always the caretaker of the local school that is the culprit. And just think, they would have got away with it if it wasn’t for those pesky kids. Caretaker on Xbox One takes the notion of the monster being the caretaker but I believe that this is far from being a kid’s cartoon show. Far from it…
Available to download right now on Xbox One, Caretaker joins the ranks of a whole host of excellent first-person horror games on this current generation of console. It promises to put the viewer into the shoes of an investigative journalist hunting down the story of an urban legend, one that focuses efforts on a caretaker of a factory in town. See, the caretaker killed all of his co-workers and is now back haunting his old hunting grounds.
For the price tag of just £6.69, Caretaker promises to be an interesting horror experience where the story is told through the player’s discovery’s rather than through voice-overs and cutscenes. In fact, it all sounds a bit like Alien Isolation, whereby when you encounter the caretaker it isn’t up to you to try to take them down, but rather find a place to hide and wait it out. And if you don’t hide? Well, you’re in for a world of trouble.
- Visuals variety as immersive horror experience : The visual variety of Caretaker chapters are closely linked with the narrative arch of the game.
- Environmental story telling : Since we play an investigative journalist, every piece of clue we find regarding the background story will be more rewarding to the player.
- Brutal A.I : Without spoiling much, you should only know this : If you sense or hear anything dangerous or sinister, just run and hide.
- Haunting Soundtrack : Make sure to turn off the lights and play this headphones on.
