In the Asylum, you are not alone. You will hear screams, moaning, crying, sobbing and more
Asylum is a point-and-click game in which you will have to explore a huge building that is in decay. It has almost collapsed, and it includes about one hundred rooms including large dining rooms, corridors and halls. Graphics are very detailed, and you will be able to see even the tiniest particles and textures of the building. Sounds are something that will raise your hair. You can hear your own steps and your own breath. If you enter a room with too much dirt or dust, the character will start coughing, if it is too much cold, you can see the breath and the character will complain about it.
When playing, you will feel lots of sensations. Beginning with the visuals, which are a pleasure to the eye, and closing with the sounds. As mentioned above, all have been designed with the Dagon Engine, which provides Asylum with a spectacular realism. The mechanics are the same as a point-and-click game. You are free to explore the whole building, but usually, you will have to find some item (such as a key) or solve some kind of puzzle to find access from one a room to another. There are four floors and a basement in the building, and you will have to pass through the entire map to discover the mystery and figure out what happened in there.
In the Asylum, you are not alone. You will hear screams, moaning, crying, sobbing and more. You will also encounter some "people" in the hospital. There are people will give you clues or will scare you when they appear suddenly and unexpectedly. However, the spooky thing about those people is that you do not know if they are actual people, ghosts of dead people, or your own imagination.
Do not leave any corner unexplored. There are items and interesting things everywhere. On the walls, there are press clips, photos, and other things that will guide you in your investigation. In addition, there are also maps of the Asylum to let you know where you are and lead you to the correct room. Since the asylum is so big, these maps are quite useful if you get lost.
