A horror game is a video game genre centered on horror fiction and typically designed to scare the player. Unlike most other video game genres, which are classified by their gameplay, horror games are nearly always based on narrative or visual presentation, and use a variety of gameplay types. (Wikipedia)
The Artful Escape not just shoots for the stars, but it pulls off the landing as well (that could have easily gone wrong in so many ways) For a game about following your internal muse it is clear the designers took thier own lesson at heart. An almost perfect small experience and a great introduction to gaming to a newcomer that does not game.
