Stray Souls is a survival horror game developed by ‘Jukai Studio‘ and published by ‘Versus Evil‘. Stray Souls is said to come out the 25th of October 2023 on the Xbox Series X, PS5 and pc. X35 Earthwalker will give this game a chance. Stray Souls is definitely going to be something that players will recognise. Let’s take a look.
Stray Souls is about a dude named Daniel who inherits a house from his “estranged grandmother”. Of course he happily moves in and meets a girl who clearly has good knowledge about the house. This ain’t your normal house alright. It’s a horror game, of course it isn’t. The thing is, as the night progresses, things get darker and more secrets come to the surface.
Players will need to not only explore the house but also the surrounding area. There’s quite a bit to see. We definitely like the big scenery. Seeing water, rocks, trees and the fact that you’re basically on your own. Now if gamers were paying attention they would be reminded about something. Stray Souls does remind us of silent hill. The indoors, the outdoors and the exploration. Things can be dark and fog is a bit of a thing but not as heavy. Not only that… there’s some threats too.
Now off course a game like Stray Souls definitely needs some threats. There are. Some almost chalky statue looking ones. Even the enemies sort of remind us of silent hill, except these enemies are better. They do however look like a baseball bat would get the job done easily. Now there are some real big threats too. There’s this big beast looking one that and it sure ain’t friendly. Most likely Daniel must hide and run from that thing, instead of battle.
We checked out some Stray Souls gameplay and it’s what we expected sort off. Stray Souls doesn’t keep you defenceless. Daniel can get a firearm. A pistol has been seen. Taking down the humanoid ones. There’s some action here. Things do look standard for sure. Stray Souls doesn’t look impressive graphically. We were hoping for more but it definitely get the job done.
Overall Stray Souls seems like an alright game. The biggest factor is the large monster enemy. The others aren’t intimidating. The house needs to have some scary and creepy stuff. The outdoors are also the better parts in our opinions. The developers ‘Jukai studios’ have done a good job so far. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to hear what this game brings up. Stray Souls may have a giant monster in the forest but it’s a small problem if handled by… the ‘Earth Walk!’
