Scarred is a graphical adventure, in a nightmarish, psychological horror setting. The writing and art combines elegantly to tell a compelling story that kept me interested throughout the whole game. The graphical style is very expressive and sets the mood effectively, both with little details and well executed special effects.
Most of the game we follow the girl Lorelai, switching between reality and memories, not quite knowing which parts are real. Everything turns around in a sickly, twisted knot giving the feeling of constant uneasyness.
The game is not particularly hard, at least not to seasoned adventure gamers. But people new to the genre may very well find themselves challenged. Some of the puzzles are quite clever, some more ordinary. It's really the story that drives this game forward, and the puzzles serve more to support the narrative rather than presenting a challenge.
The sound and music provides suitable support for the setting, but at times it becomes monotonous. and at one spot it was a little too discomforting for me, and I had to turn the volume down for a bit.
Overall a very good game and story that I recommend to anyone into story based games. But be warned that it becomes quite unsettling and outright scary at times.
