Gray Dawn from Interactive Stone and Carbon is a first-person walking sim in which you must clear your name after being accused of a heinous crime. What are you being accused of? Murdering an altar boy. Oh, and you’re playing as a priest. The game dives into the supernatural with demonic possession and divine apparitions in a journey during which you’re also trying not to go insane.

Gray Dawn Review - 1

This one takes place on Christmas Eve, way back in the year 1920, in a remote village in England. It’s a psychological horror thriller of the walking sim variety in which you must find the clues that can hopefully lead you to find the aforementioned altar boy, who is apparently alive… or at least that’s what you think. You must explore this world from a first-person perspective as you interact with what surrounds you.

 

Guilty or not, any time you remember the altar boy or hear about being accused of his murder, you will end up going into a wear trance fueled by fear. It’s then that things will take a turn, and everything around you will change. Gore is very much part of this gameplay loop, which is why it’s a game that might rug some people the wrong way. Once you start to hear what seems to be the devil’s voice, you could end up entranced, believing what may or may not be dirty lies.

With this one being a walking sim played from a first-person perspective, you’ll walk around with the left analog stick as you survey your surroundings with the right one. You can run by pressing and holding down the L2 button or activate the toggle option so that you only need to press the button once to go from walking to running and vice versa. The X button is for interacting. This could be for looking at something, picking up an object, or dropping an object in your possession.

 

Gray Dawn is a first-person walking sim in which you must clear your name after being accused of a heinous crime. After being accused in 1920s England of murdering a young altar boy, you’ll go on a journey to try and prove your innocence, even if it at times seems that you might be guilty and have gone insane. Given its main premise and how it leans into religious imagery and its basis, it’s not going to be for everyone. Based on your experience with the genre, you’re looking at around 2-3 hours to complete this one. Gray Dawn is available as a Cross-Buy title, so your $19.99 purchase will allow you to download both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions of the game at no extra cost.
