REVIEW: Gray Dawn (2023 Video Game) on Xbox

"Gray Dawn," developed by Romanian independent game studio Interactive Stone, ventures into the horror genre with a distinctive religious theme. Set on Christmas Eve in 1920, players assume the role of Father Abraham, unraveling a mysterious plot involving the disappearance of altar boy David and allegations of child murders. The game combines survival horror gameplay with psychological elements, presenting a narrative-driven experience.

The gameplay immerses players in a first-person perspective, exploring eerie environments, solving puzzles, and collecting images of Christ to shape the story's outcome. Voice-overs, subtitles, and optional recordings enhance the storytelling, providing depth to the narrative. While the game balances walking simulator elements with engaging puzzles, the absence of a persistent villain may leave some longing for a more intense horror experience.
