I Have A Fear is a fantastic first person psychological horror adventure set within the developer’s unfinished games, exploring multiple types of fear and the dev’s own personal fears.
A debeaut project by Taki Games, I Have A Fear takes you on a journey of fear, introspection and fourth-wall breaking, interspersed with a little humor and a lot of nerve-wracking horror. In the game you explore some of the developer’s “unfinished” projects and stumble across something dark lurking within them. There are many fears that the game explores, but there’s one right at the heart of it that has to be overcome.
I Have A Fear takes around 1-2 hours to play through and has an overarching story that is split up into different games that would make for excellent little horror games in their own right. Each game explores a different fear, explores different gameplay mechanics and has a different horrifying monster lurking within it. They also all require you to pay attention and figure out how to deal with each monster – just running away rarely works.
If there’s one criticism that can be aimed at I Have A Fear (aside from the occasional grammatical error) then it’s that it can be extremely frustrating at times – thanks to there being very few checkpoints and some of the levels being very tough. Other than that though it’s a very well crafted horror game with lots of inventive twists and a surprisingly touching overarching narrative. Very highly recommended.
