About this game

The sun had set across the mountain tops, save for a single flicker that still glistened from a single peak. The locals know not to investigate. Not only because the German government has forbidden it, but also because those who do never return the same, if at all. The few known survivors, in-between their lapses of madness, speak of great stone walls that uphold a structure more imposing than any known today. Little does the world know, however, that these walls no longer serve their intended purpose of keeping intruders out, but rather, to now keep something in.

The Horror Behind the Walls is an immersive 34,000-word interactive horror novel intended to provide phenomenal imagery in every scene. From the author of The Aether: Life as a God, Alex Ryan, your choices control the story. It's entirely text-based—without graphics or sound effects—and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

All you know is that someone, or something, has been calling to you. With hundreds of cases solved and thousands of spirits laid to rest, your name has become synonymous with the paranormal. Renowned as one of the world’s greatest private investigators, you are about to uncover a secret far more disturbing than any case you’ve worked on in the past. Night after night, nightmares have been sent across the world to plague your dreams. Something that’s been hidden away from a time long forgotten now beckons to be remembered.

• Play as a male, female, or nonbinary.
• Track down the source of the nightmares that have haunted you.
• Explore an ancient castle and traverse its labyrinth.

I had a good time with this game but the story doesn't feel complete or really satisfying. I did enjoyed the ghosts, visions, and the messed up monster though there were a few too many chase scenes. The writing is a little rough. The scenery was over-described and I ended up skimming over whole paragraphs to get to something important. That said, I'd be happy to play other titles by this author and see how they improve. This is a fun game and definitely worth playing.

In this book you are a psychic detective called to Germany to investigate a disappearance. The opening of the story has excellent dialogue and imagery with detailed descriptions of a dark haunted castle. This game is frustrating: to get the good ending it is like a puzzle and the narrative for what happened to the castle in the past is disjointed and confusing. If you like puzzle games and enjoy lots of descriptive imagery than this book is for you.
