CAGE-FACE| Case 1: The Mine is an intense found footage first person horror where a detective investigates a mysterious case about a murderous miner with a cage for a head.
CAGE-FACE| Case 1: The Mine is a full remake of the original Cage-Face game that was released last year. It features a similar set-up to the original, but the gameplay is significantly different, the visuals are improved and Cage-Face both looks more terrifying and is harder to avoid.
You start the game as the detective who is investigating the case and have a selection of evidence scattered around your desk that you can look at to learn more of the lore. You can then play a VHS on the TV which shows a little of a witnesses’ testimony and then lets you relive their story in first person. It seems he entered an old mine to do a little bit of tagging with his buddy, but once Cage-Face arrived on the scene escape and survival were the only things on his mind.
Taking around 15 minutes to play through, it’s a great little horror game with a very tense atmosphere and a well designed monster. There are some nice little touches – such as the chirping of a canary whenever Cage-Face is nearby and the way the bars on his head cast shadows around you while being chased. It’s got an interesting lore too, and with more planned cases in the future it’ll be nice to learn more of Cage-Face’s origins and his motivations.
