ARAYA is an atmospheric horror adventure that takes place inside an extremely creepy Thai hospital. I played the game on my desktop, but it’s also available in VR.
You play as three different characters throughout the game. From these three perspectives, you explore and find information that gives you some insight into the murder of Araya. By putting all the pieces together, you uncover the truth behind her death. I found it was a little bit confusing to be jumping back and forth between the different character perspectives. The story was fine though, and by the end, I think I understood most of what happened.
Most of the gameplay is walking around the hospital, and exploring each room to find clues about what happened to ARAYA. You’ll need to find keys, or other objects to progress. ARAYA also has thrilling chases sequences where you run for your life, crawling under and hopping over obstacles as you search for an escape to safety.
There are also a lot jump scares as well, and some of them were very well placed, and got me really good. There were so many of them that I started to anticipate them, and the majority of them didn’t even phase me.
