Those Who Crawl is a claustrophobic first person spelunking stealth horror game where you climb through a cave system that’s home to some freaky killer monsters.
In Those Who Crawl you find yourself within an eerie cave system and must use a novel crawling/climbing system to make your way through them (while avoiding the monsters that lurk in the darkness). Rather than using WASD, you move by using the left and right mouse buttons to place your hands and drag you forwards.
Climbing is a little trickier and requires you either finding handholds to latch onto or finding a bone knife to stab into the walls. The bone knives also come in handy for cutting through certain obstacles and can even be used to repel monsters in a pinch. Your best course of action with the monsters is to avoid them though and there are usually plenty of places to hide to get out of their way.
It does take a little time to get the hang of the control scheme, but it works really well and makes for a very unique experience. It’s a great little horror game with tons of atmosphere, freaky monsters and a nice mixture of challenges to overcome. Highly recommended.
