Vile Matter is a dark psychological horror adventure where you solve puzzles and attempt to escape a shadowy facility while pursuing a mysterious character who always appears to be one step ahead of you.
In Vile Matter you find yourself in a rather austentatious looking office in a strange facility after breaking in through the air vents. You now need to explore and solve puzzles as you attempt to escape, but it seems that there’s someone who is always one step ahead of you and who has left a trail of letters for you in their wake.
Taking around 30 minutes to play through, Vile Matter is a cleverly constructed experience with inventive puzzle design, an intriguing narrative and high quality visuals. It could perhaps do with some more checkpoints in a section where you run through shadows, but it’s a great game nonetheless. A particularly nice touch is how the psychological horror elements seep in as you make your way through what initially seems to be a puzzle solving espionage game, with things getting very dark later on. Highly recommended.
