This game made it all the way to the top of the itch.io horror page between when I found it this morning and finished writing this article now. So that should give you some idea of how much people are enjoying Train 113.
Train 113 is a game by Wake Up Games from itch.io. In it, you play a person who, as the dev name suggests, wakes up alone on a subway. Exploring the various cars, you soon find out that not all is right in this metro. But with nowhere to go but forward (or leap out the side to your death, I guess), you can only press on to the front.
Most straight hallway based games are fairly uneventful, but taking place on a moving metro But Train 113 uses the predictable places you’re bound to look (either forward or backward) to create some fantastic cinematic scares. The audio and graphics are great, and they even modeled the characters legs. Quality stuff.
