Our Elusive Suffering is an insanely hard and visually stunning atmospheric horror exploration game where you attempt to complete a mysterious blood ritual in a surreal foggy land.
Created by Screenshakes (creator of Abyssal Plains and Seaway), Our Elusive Suffering is a cryptic horror game that tasks you with figuring out how to complete a blood ritual in a land filled with freaky red-eyed monsters. The monsters come in two main forms – a massive tentacle monster that towers above you and stomps around the world, and smaller monsters that hide within objects and chase you when you get near. Both types will kill you instantly if they come in contact with you, at which point you’ll need to start all over again!
Our Elusive Suffering is deliberately confusing and ridiculously hard. That’s not really a negative against the game though as it’s a lot of fun figuring out what to do and where to go in its surreal foggy world and it keeps you coming back for more (no matter how many times you die). The art design is particularly breathtaking, from the way the big monster towers over the city to the way the shadowy worm things wriggle in the air. You’ll probably never complete Our Elusive Suffering, but you’ll have a lot of fun trying. Highly recommended.
