Amanda French writes: "Tormentum: Dark Sorrow is unique as a casual-level adventure game because of its beautiful, dark, and surreal imagery. It explores the idea of redemption, but not just that, how we perceive morality at all. The elements of horror in Tormentum crept under your skin, making you feel unease. I always felt that adventure games were ideal for things like that given the nature of interaction and the strong focus on story. As a fan of metal music and horror films, I doubly appreciate such game titles. But if you're like me, one isn't enough. That's why I've compiled a list of nightmarish games that are similar to it! Here they are, in no particular order of preference."
