DYING: Reborn

Six Chapters in a twisted story featuring Mathew, the main character who went out to look for his missing sister, only to find himself waking up in a dilapidated and eerie hotel with seemingly no way out. Classic puzzle-solving gameplay reminiscent of adventure game classics mixed with impressive first-person visuals that make for a gritty and immersive experience. Fans of movie series such as Saw need to look no further: a mysterious fish-head nemesis, a grudge, a series of never-ending trials and a shocking ending will satisfy all your needs.

Short version: 52%
‘DYING: Reborn’ is a short escape room game with six stages of varying difficulty, hilariously bad voice acting, an almost non-existing plot, and some replay value thanks to its achievements.
Long version:
DYING: Reborn is exactly what the store page indicates: six escape rooms with varying degrees of size and difficulty, where we must solve a series of prop-related and code-breaking puzzles to reach the end. These puzzles have a twisted (and eventually predictable) logic, but they are also strangely fun and straightforward… with some notorious exceptions.
There are some bad game design choices, like the awkward menu system or the snail-paced walking speed. On the plus side, the game is quite short—around 2 hours—so it does not try to drag out its content unnecessarily.
The story is paper-thin, clichéd, and predictable—we wake up with an amnesia in an abandoned death trap hotel, looking for our sister—however, the horrible voice acting and the goofy translation put it right into the middle of the “so bad it is good” territory.
Although escape rooms are hardly known for their replay value, this game offers some in the form of two secret endings. One just needs additional problem solving and maybe some guesswork, but the second one is a truly mad item hunt that may force most players to look up the solution.

tl;dr
Voice acting feels 'low budget'. Puzzles are, fk the puzzle. About 1 jump scare per Section. The story left a lot of questions un-answered. It's a crappy game, but I kind of like the puzzle. Would I recommend? Sure, but I'd also tell you that this is a crappy game when I recommend it to you, just so you know that I enjoy it, but it is crappy.
Voice acting
I personally think it's not good, but not to say very bad. There is however, one part in Section 5 in the vent where Matthew panting that is just unbearable.
Puzzle
Some are freaking stupid, some are freaking clever, those that I cant solve are stupid, those that I can solve are clever. I enjoy solving them regardless, well, sometimes I rage, but yea, that's a love-hate relationship you'd get when you solve a puzzle.
Jump scares
I think the jump scare is minimal, which is good, i prefer no jump scare. I think there's about 1 jump scare in each Section.
Story
It's quite confusing for me. You woke up and you can only remember that you're looking for your sister, Shirley. That's all you could remember, which make the story seems confusing. Throughout 6 Sections, you'll be gradually exposed to your kidnaper's identity, but the reason he kidnapped you was left hanging. There're some other questions that are left hanging, if you don't like being left hanging like that, don't get this game. What question you ask? Well, spoiler alert
What happened to David and Lily? Or What have you done to them?
Who is Connie? Where did she go? She disappeared mid-game and you don't hear of her again.
There was a part where you could see your kidnaper's shadow in a room, but on the other side, someone was dragging a mannequin, who daheck was that?
Also, around the end of the game's credit, the kidnapper seems to hint us that it was just the beginning, are they planning to do a sequal?
Stuff that I would like to slap back to the dev
-Collect fragments of data that ultimately will lead to learning the truth behind Mathew’s dark predicament.
Nope. You're exposed to who he is, and get a hint of why he did it, but you still don't know what is the truth.
Maybe I'm just dumb, but I still wanna slap it back to the dev. Laugh at me if I'm wrong.
I made a high quality playthrough, check em out. actually no, it's a crappy Let's Play, I just want some attention, there, I siad it. Happy?
DISCLAIMER: IT'S NOT A WALKTHROUGH!

Good escape room / puzzle game.

Review from Steam

This game is absolutely worth playing if you like horror puzzle games. I found it to be a satisfying way to spend my time.
Con:
--The controls really are terrible. Just go into it with those expectations and practice a bit when you first start
--Plot isn't great, jumpscares are contrived
--SUPER SHORT, I got 6 hours in and took my time
Pro:
--The puzzles are satisfying
--Nothing is timed
--The plot and voice acting, while not great, are highly amusing and fun to go along with
--SUPER SHORT (for some of us, that's a plus)
--There are extra bonus hidden things!

Review from Steam

It's an alright little puzzle game, the puzzles aren't too difficult aside from a couple of them which just don't give you enough information to solve them. The voice acting isn't very good but its passable. The graphics are alright, the sound design is a bit meh, there are some typos in there. I mean overall its an alright experience, nothing special though. 5/10

Horror, puzzles, and terrible voice acting. Good formula.

I played the PS4 Version and while it has some flaws, its good a good game to kill some time if you are into horror games. Especially on VR it gives you a much better experience. Just got this to check out the new ending. The story is a bit creepy and sometimes gross but not too much and still good if you play it at night.
