Any individual piece of this game is mediocre at best. Immerse in the story of long-buried secrets, personal tragedies, and madness. It just didn't make any sense to me.
The second half of the game feels like walking through one of those amusement park “haunted houses”, where every few moments something jumps out at the player accompanied by a loud noise.
The Beast Inside is all over the fucking place. Pledge amount.
Instead, they find the mysterious diary of a man named Nicolas who lived during the Civil War, bringing supernatural danger from the past into the present and directly into Adam's life.

I couldn't figure out if the QTE wanted me to press the right or left side of the mouse once or continuously click it. From the beeswax candles in their tinderbox candle holders, to the old-fashioned shutters, to the old furniture, the developers did a great job of recreating my grandmother’s creepy home. I saw a bloody handprint on the gate, which naturally piqued my curiosity—I assumed it might be a bit of a free roam and solving side quest. I can just respawn literally one room prior to my death spot and retry until I complete the sequence. The puzzles are overly complicated, combat clunky, plot inconsistent, scares cheap, etc.
Also, Adam and Nicholas were both the lanky unsporting type and couldn't jump to save their lives unless it magically had to do with a QTE.
That said, I was struck by the fact that, aside from a few bird jumpscares, I didn't see one animal. If you think that I’ve finally lost it and my dementia riddled brain is mashing together the game I’m playing with the Tom Clancy movie my dad is watching next door, I’m not sure if explaining it will help. It’s cheap and lazy. This page was last edited on 28 September 2018, at 22:14.

There are multiple endings in the final chapter of the game. The ‘The Beast Inside’ is available for download for $24.99 on the Steam Store. It would have made the world even more believable and majestic. An immense level of hype surrounded the title, which received the support of over 2,000 backers. Usually, after Adam discovers a clue from the past, it switches back to the world of Nicholas Hyde. Last but not least, I had some issues with the protagonists, Adam Stevenson and Nicholas Hyde. Each of these new mechanics just pop-in like incels into an Instagrammer’s DMs. On its face, it appears to borrow concepts from games such as Firewatch, Resident Evil 7, Amnesia and Remothered: Tormented Fathers. Both are unaware of the danger that hides within their minds. With these somewhat positive points out of the way, I have to dive into the negative territory.
You have the gun for just that level, then never again. Ambient and environmental sounds add character to the locations, while the chilling score comprised primarily of discordant clangs and strings is appropriately unsettling.

I wish there were more places to hide from enemies—the moment the enemy sees you in the corner of their eye, you cannot run away and hide in a cabinet.

About 50% of the way into the game, The Beast Inside just decides it now has quick-time events. ADD TO WISHLIST . © 2020 Forbes Media LLC. But instead of taking the best elements of each of these genres and combining them into a unique experience, the game instead just jumps between these wildly different genres from chapter to chapter, creating a disorientating, convoluted experience that introduces mechanics and then just as quickly takes them away.
This was rather inconvenient when enemies were chasing you with their insta-kill abilities. Things quickly takes a turn for the worse in the new home, as he discovers its troubled history and the beast hidden within himself. Fear, paranoia, fate - the best of horror and thriller merged in the multi-layered story of madness and forgotten, horrifying secrets.

Whilst moving into his new home with his wife, a CIA code breaker begins to lose his grip on reality after discovering a hundred-year-old murder-mystery within the pages of hidden diary.
