The story starts off with a bus crash, but the story in Fright definitely goes far beyond that. Fright is the latest game from the studio who has brought us Nightmare Realm franchise; but believe us, Fright is even more nightmarish.

Fright explores the story behind the old-fashioned, nearly-abandoned city with a spooky cornfield and a lonely motel. The story in Fright is not really original and it sure could have gone much more further; still, the game caught our attention from the start. You will be interacting with several characters as you make progress through the game, both human and ghosts?. Each of them are portrayed by surprisingly great live-actor, with up-to-standard voice over and a fantastic effort at lip syncing.
Fright is not those kind of game that is filled with jump-scares that tease on your nerves. Fright plays mostly on the environment, the sound effects, the visuals and the overall atmosphere of the game; the developers did an amazing job with those aspects, which is the reason why Fright is so creepy. The visuals in Fright is ominously terrific; many of the locations in the game are intended to be dirty and a little grainy, just to add a little bit to the fear factor.
On the gameplay side, Fright is doing fine. It follows the simple rules of a HOPA game; nothing really innovative or challenging, but the overall experience is an impressive one. Fright involves a lot of backtracking; fortunately, the game includes a functional jump-map to help with that. The game focuses mainly on the adventure part, with hidden objects and puzzles here and there. The hidden object scenes are unexpectedly entertaining and creative; some of them tell some backstory and all of them are highly interactive. The puzzles, on the other hand, are not so great. We would not say they are unique, they suit more with the word 'unusual'. A few of them is fun and not too easy, the problem is that a number of them is frustrating and too linear.
Fright is satisfying in terms of length and quality. The main game took us fair 4 hours to complete and the bonus chapter, although a little bit short, adds a lot to the story. Other extra content can be found in the checklist below.
Fright is not exactly frightening, but it is surely a very sinister HOPA. The environment is awesomely eerie, the plot is interesting, the gameplay is excellent - Fright really has the whole package!
