Dollhouse user review
Not scary and immediately irritating.
Masterpiece. A game in which you can play a long time. Interesting story, many ways to passage and difficulty levels. It looks like labyrinth where you must find memories and things that can help survive. On the every map there are many different versions of enemies and traps. Beautiful design at everything, from the menu to the little things in the game. The text and voice acting is amazing. Opportunity to gain experience and develop skills can help with strategy, also finding death points can return everything if character die, I find this gameplay comfortable. Besides the usual mode in the campaign, there are modes where you can turn off threats or die without returning, but for the first pass it's better to play normal mode.
Dollhouse has been a long-awaited horror game for the last six years; having first been announced in 2013. The developer, Creazn Studio, as well as the publisher, SOEDESCO Publishing, had both been extremely quiet about the release in general; no launch dates, and not much information on the gameplay or story. A bit more than a month before its release date, there was an open beta on both PC and PlayStation 4, which seemed to come and go without many critics or fans saying much. So, with all of the surrounding enigma, what exactly is Dollhouse?

Written review below!
Dollhouse is one of those indie games with amazing looking concept visuals, and so you think "Hey, this could be really good". And I think the developer's intentions were good, but after creating the base story of the game there came the harsh reality that this is a GAME. If this were a movie it would probably be very good, but like another high profile indie game, We Happy Few, this game doesn't deliver in the gameplay department.
(Disclaimer: This review pertains only to the single player version of the game. I haven't tried the multiplayer and I'm not liable to, since that's really not my bag.)
Dollhouse was typical of indie games where the game was far from perfect on launch. Bugs, unbalanced gameplay mechanics, and map generation issues were a problem at first. I had trouble with pickups spawning half in the floor/walls and weird enemy hitboxes. Luckily the team seems dedicated to updating and (surprisingly) listening to community feedback despite the awkward launch. The story is solid and the gameplay has been reworked. Visually the aesthetic fits the noir vibe they’re going for and I like the music/general atmosphere but I wish there was a little more color. Its seen positive changes since last month and the updates have made the game more enjoyable. Originally I would’ve given this game a C- rating, but with the patches and general changes I’ll bump it up.
I want to give my early impressions of this game.
Interesting game. I like that they are still working on making the game better.
The standout of this game is how hardworking the developer is. Rose’s Diagnosis updates have improved how the game plays. When I emailed the team about glitches I found they got back to me quickly and two updates later the problems I reported have been fixed. That kind of response is top notch.
Dollhouse is a super immersive and spooky experience! One of my biggest fears in games is being stalked by something and this game plays on that so well. The puzzles were interesting and fun and I was kept on my toes throughout!
In Dollhouse you play as a detective named Marie and you explore a hellish world that is created by your amnesia. The general goal is to collect film reels and figure out who you are. This game is carried by the story and it is weird and uncomfortable at times which is good for the horror aspect.
This game preyed on my fear of weird mannequins. It isn’t a traditional horror game and most of the anxiety it generates comes from using your resources carefully and finding your way through randomly generated mazes.
Usually I don't write any reviews, but I really liked this game and want to support the team. So the soundtrack and the visual style is pretty nice! Loved the whole noir-atmosphere which was done perfectly. What is more - really mysterious story which is interesting to follow. Good puzzles and jump scares!
