Tequila Work’s suspenseful and thrilling game, GYLT, has just been released on all platforms to play. In this game, you’ll need to explore a new and hazardous environment to discover what happened to your cousin, Emily, who has gone missing, and find your way home.
You play Sally, a young girl dealing with typical childhood challenges and coping with her cousin’s disappearance. While running from a group of bullies, Sally finds herself in a dark, twisted version of her hometown, Bethelwood. Dark forces and terrifying creatures make her face her fears, forcing her to come to terms with her worst memories.
There are many mechanics players can use that may seem familiar to seasoned gamers. For example, paying homage to Alan Wake, you can use your flashlight. This allows you to fend off creatures of the night and protect yourself. Additionally, not only can you use the flashlight, but you can also use traps or objects in your environment to maneuver around your opponents. Stealth is a crucial part of this game to pass certain levels. Therefore, with any game with stealth mechanics, there are visual indicators to determine if an enemy has spotted you or if you are safe.
GYLT is the perfect introduction to horror for younger or new horror gamers. Initially released on Google’s Stadia platform, Tequila Works has released GYLT on Steam, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One.
