Game: Spirit Camera

Game review: Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir
2011 - Nintendo / TECMO KOEI GAMES CO., LTD
Horror, 1 player
Nintendo 3DS

The game’s mysterious storyline involves a girl named Maya who has been hiding in the darkness of an old house, cursed by a malevolent woman in black. To free Maya from the curse, players must use the “diary of faces” to view ghostly images and interact with the world Maya is trapped in. The Nintendo 3DS system becomes the Camera Obscura in players’ hands and is capable of revealing the supernatural and dispelling evil spirits. The lines between reality and fiction blur in this chilling horror adventure. 

Finely a horror game for the Nintendo 3DS!
And who is the main character? Yourself!

You`ll be playing this game real life, using your Nintendo 3DS as your eyes and weapon. 

Included with the game is a 16-page AR Book, known as the "diary of faces" in the game's Story Mode, which serves as a gateway into this haunting experience.

As players view the book’s images through the lenses of the Nintendo 3DS camera, they enter its pages using augmented reality.
At times, pages will come to life in the form of movies, revealing past events that offer insights into the mysteries surrounding the diary.
In other moments, characters will emerge from the pages into the player's world via augmented reality in the form of evil spirits that attack from all directions.

Players can also use the notebook with their Nintendo 3DS system to face other challenges involving a mix of memory, hide-and-seek and other game play elements all with a supernatural twist.

When you start the game you will see many warnings that you play this on your own risk.
That will get you in the mood!

Then the game ask to take a picture of yourself. You are the hero of the game.

You play the entire game in your room with the dairy. So don`t loos that little book or you can`t play the game anymore.

You must look into the diary and strange stuff will happen. Images, videos, will appear...
And suddenly you will be transported to an other room. Find your way out by looking around you.

Strange things will happen and it will freak you out. It is like you are really sucked up in the game.
The 3DS works great! Great graphics, scary music and sound. And the game translate your movement perfectly into the game.

Don`t freak out when a girl is standing next to your refrigerator!

You will get the feeling to experience a Japanese horror movie in real life!
