I only got to play a short bit of this game, but I would like to return and complete it. I enjoyed what I played of it, though flawed, it's a great FREE game to play. The game is a basic fetch quest over and over again. Run to room, get key, run to other room and unlock, get another key, run to another room and unlock, get more keys, etc. etc. Nothing very entertaining, but what can you expect from a free game?
The story was a bit confusing but the character is apparently returning home and getting it prepped for a wedding (I think). He makes several comments about not remembering how big the house is (though he stated he built it) while getting chased by things called DSP (what does that even stand for) and some robotic meat-grinders on wheels that don't like the light. I only played a short bit of the game and did NOT complete it, but I do hope to continue it in the future.
PROS:
* Fun retro-style graphics with fixed camera angles
* Decent SFX that match the atmosphere
* Easy to see key items (shiny stars that glow bright)
* Simple to use inventory system
* Unlimited saves in the save room (which has decent music too!)
* Unlimited Hint system if you are lost and need a hint on where to go next
CONS:
* Awkward controls that work for mouse and keyboard, but do NOT translate well to controller (tried PS4, XBOX1 and *8BitPro 2 controllers)
* One-hit-kill from all enemies if they catch you (and they move WAY faster than you)
* No auto-saves (must use in-game save system)
* Most rooms have light switches, but some rooms are completely pitch black and there's no light source (like a flashlight) to use making it difficult to just wander around in a completely pitch black room trying to find the exit.
It's worth a play, but this game is going to require some patience, MANY frequent saves. Retro-horror players or people that like currently challenge games like Alisa or Alone in the Dark would enjoy this game.

Dead Seater is a fantastic horror game.
This game is genuinely scary.
The way this game escalates its dangers and scares in such a short time is impressive. As soon as you become comfortable in the game, it finds a way to raise the tension. Areas you explored previously never stop feeling threatening; in fact, they often become more horrifying! Because of the game's short length too, it never feels old or repetitive. In the ~80 minutes it takes to beat this game, you will be on the edge of your seat most of that time!
That being said, you do backtrack A LOT. The game takes good advantage of this by making the areas uncomfortable for you even as you go through them a third or fourth time, but you will want to save often as the trips do get old even before you factor in your deaths.
The camera angles and controls may be an obstacle for players, but the game warms you up with navigating the house before escalating the danger, so do not be discouraged if you feel overwhelmed at first! They are manageable with some effort and fans to classic survival horror games should have little to no issue adapting.
Overall a fantastic gem and one more horror fans should experience! Take a seat and give it a try! At that price, what have you got to lose?

A good, scary and free horror game!
If you like having small heart attacks and old school vibes, this is for you!
I recommend 100%

Review from Steam

Outstanding horror, paced well, and builds dread over time.
Could have charged money and would still be great

Review from Steam

I feel like this game is absolutely amazing in most cases, The DSP coming from barely anywhere yet instilling the fear that it was going to come from anything to anywhere, Those MBs making the game more tedious for players who hated the darkness, that damn c u r t a i n..... It all added to the feeling of impending or imminent doom. The mono style of audio gave it a really nice feel of being trapped with the DSP mostly because you could only hear if he was coming, and not where. The ending as well was semi-pleasing but is also to me the only downfall due to how often ending like those are being used, i did however, love the cinematics that were used as well as the last bits of tension used and Father. Overall, a solid 9/10

Amazing game, can't believe that it's free - the amount of work that went into this is insane.
If you want a great horror game - play it, you won't regret it.
My only complaint is the control scheme. I get that it's SH-inspired, but it's a huge pain when you need to run precisely. Still, it's a very small complaint - the game is simply amazing.
Definitely recommend it.
