The PC is one of the best platforms to play games and is also the easiest to develop for. Bootham is a great example of this as it’s such a great game being made by 1 person. Horror games are scarce for the PC, and Bootham is here to fix that!
Bootham is a first person / survival / horror game that just throws you into a nightmarish world. You just wake up not knowing how you got to this asylum and, of course, your first thought is to get out. How do you do it, though? You try to use all the items scattered around each room to help you unlock doors and protect yourself. You’ll have to arm yourself and find anything that can help you keep your life up as you try to survive through the crazy people in this asylum that will try to kill you. The game controls really well for a beta game. You use the typical first person control setup where you use W to walk forward and S to walk backward. The A and D keys will make you strafe left and right. Your mouse will be used to look around. The left mouse button is used to shoot. You can interact with the stuff you see with the E key (stuff you can interact with will have a circle with an eye on it). The F key is used to turn off your flashlight and you can press it again to turn it back on. The game adds a bit of difficulty by giving you a limited battery for your flashlight, so make sure to use your flashlight sparingly or you’ll be walking through the dark, which is not something you want to do in an asylum filled with people with mental problems!
Although this game is still on beta, it’s already looking like such a great game, and with the developer still adding a lot of stuff, Bootham is a great game to add to your library and is worth checking out.
