Gray Dawn places the player into the shoes of a priest who is being accused of the abduction and deaths of several young children. Players control the priest as they move through a bright and vibrant, yet dark and sinister world. Locate clues and relics to recover the memories of what happened. As you move through trying to prove the priest’s innocence, you will be tormented with terrible visions and flashes in this strange and captivating game.
- Story rich. Gray Dawn has a strong story that will keep players immersed until the end. Finding out the truth is only half the story, there is so much more going on just beyond the fabric of reality.
- Beautiful world. The game world is very beautiful and vibrant. Everything rendered with attention to even the finest detail showing the love that the developer put into it.
- Creepy. The game, while very beautiful, is also quite horrible! One moment everything looks wonderful and the next, players are dropped into a hellscape of terror.
- Character models. The models of the characters that are in the game world look cheap and stock-like. The drastic difference between the beautiful landscape that surrounds you and these cheap models serves to ruin the immersion.
Gray Dawn offers an interesting story and a world that is as beautiful as it is creepy. The game mechanics are basic, and the graphics not great, but overall it is a well done and decently put together experience. I mostly enjoyed my time with the game and recommend it if you have the time and a little extra money to spend.
