Theirs a new game that arrived in town and it is not just the ordinary MMORPGs that we used to play. Their are no levels to worry about and no classes to pick, it is a pure skill- based character building so their will be no level grinding and any new gamer that wants to join can do it easily. Not played in far far away fairy land and sci-fi universe like any other popular RPGs but in mysterious side of our world. A very interesting game that drains the patience and focus out of your gaming instinct. The amazing sound design which gives goosebumps. You explore the abandoned building accompanied by trembling drums creating a little tension then hearing a chilling howl of a tortured ghosts echoing through the asylum. The grieving dissonant chords giving an uneasy feeling. Even the smallest sounds created when discovering a new place, a notification and having gained an ability points remarkably fit to the sound design.
