Not often do I get the chance to check out a game that I’m actually quite hesitant to play after seeing the trailer, but here we are folks. I want to give thanks to Feardemic Games and NC Studio for picking away at my facade of “Pft! I got this!” gaming attitude with Project Nightmares Case 36: Henrietta Kedward.



Project Nightmares Case 36: Henrietta Kedward follows an individual who through science and the paranormal is sent into a dream with a psychic connection to a doll with evil energy attached to it that once belonged to Henrietta Kedward, a reclusive elderly woman whose life is shrouded in mystery as well as the paranormal implications surrounding her. While in this dream You will encounter an evil presence that’s well aware of your intrusion and will stop at nothing to kill you.


Not onto the game itself! Project Nightmares Case 36: Henrietta Kedward‘s controls respond well and are easy to learn surprisingly as you’re launched into the story feet first. Headphones are a must as sound plays an important role in the game’s experience as you explore this nightmare of a world where hearing the patrolling footsteps of Henrietta but it also opens you up to getting spooked by some jumpscares!





The game’s art uses its lighting engine well with making the world both look dreamlike and foreboding as only the dim light of a candle not only is your source of light but protection from the dark presence that will come creeping up on you, so make sure you know where other lit candles are to relight yours if it goes out!


The gameplay of Project Nightmares Case 36: Henrietta Kedward is tense, to say the least! Exploration and stealth are key to survival but also being able to keep the flame of your candle going. You can run if you have to but that will blow out your candle and as mentioned before, you got to quickly relight that! There are puzzles and tools that you will encounter to help you proceed forward along with finding some salt that you can throw at enemies if need be to give you a chance to flee.


Overall, Project Nightmares Case 36: Henrietta Kedward is an impressive game for being made by two people! The game is tense, the story is intriguing, the gameplay is good, and the sound is amazing as well as the art, I actually had to walk away from the game for a bit to get myself spiritually in the right place to dive back in because I was not ready. The only real complaint I have with the game at the time of writing this is the overuse of some of the jumpscares with the environment, yes they got me but also feel a bit overused.


On my scale of 1-10, Project Nightmares Case 36: Henrietta Kedward is a 10 and possibly one of the most intense horror games of 2023! Project Nightmares Case 36: Henrietta Kedward will haunt your dreams on April 27th on PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X/S.
