Game Review: Strangeland’s dark, cosmic world is let down by its narrative structure

(Premium content) Premium content

Wormwood Studio’s ‘Strangeland’ is a mind-bending ride through a visually unique and well-crafted world that is dulled by repetitive puzzles and inconsistent narrative pacing, writes Chantelle McColl

Strangeland presents a Lovecraftian-inspired world that is by nature confronting, gory and grim, reflecting its dark and complicated narrative exploration of self-harm, grief and mental illness. The circus itself is decomposing, and each room contains varying degrees of grotesque imagery, from body horror to rotting architecture, that you are forced to interact with.
