Pools (Chapter 2 & 3 Beta Demo) – Let’s Play

Hello friends. This is a Let’s Play video of “Pools” Chapter 2 & 3 beta demo version. Walk around, look around and listen to the sounds. Hypnotic. Eerie. Immersive. No monsters chasing you or jumping towards at your screen, but the game can feel oppressive at times by invoking fears of getting lost, the dark, and tight spaces.

In the shadowy depths of “POOLS” players embark on a journey through an enigmatic and surreal world where reality bends at the edges of perception. This adventure game, devoid of monsters and traditional scares, leverages the primal fears of darkness, confinement, and the unknown to create a deeply immersive and unsettling experience. With no UI or dialogue, the game relies on haunting soundscapes to enhance its eerie atmosphere, making each step into its non-linear, exploration-driven chapters a test of courage and curiosity. The absence of a guiding story or characters leaves players to their own interpretations, as the changing environments challenge their sense of direction and reality. “POOLS” is an artful blend of psychological horror and a walking simulator, where the beauty of exploration meets the thrill of the unseen and unheard, crafting an unforgettable journey into the depths of the unknown.
