Blair Witch is a first-person horror adventure game licensed after a popular series of horror movies. The game was developed by the Polish Bloober Team studio, which has created such games as Observer and Layers of Fear series.
The action of the game takes place in the United States, in 1996. The story begins with the disappearance of a little boy who vanished without a trace in the Black Hills Forest near Burkittsville, Maryland.
The players assume the role of a man named Ellis, a former cop with a difficult past who joins the search for a child. In order to find the boy, the hero will have to face not only his own fears, but also the Blaie Witch, who, according to legend, haunts the Black Hills forest.
In Blair Witch, players observe the action from the first-person perspective, and the game focuses on exploration and discovery of the plot. Together with a faithful dog Bullet, players search through a grim forest, where time and space are distorted and curved.
Occasional riddles make the game more interesting. From time to time, there are also arcade challenges, such as escape sequences.
Blair Witch offers a single player mode only. The authors have not provided any option for multiplayer modes.
The strong point of the game is its visuals. The creators have prepared detailed three-dimensional locations, and the visual setting and sound effectively enhance the horror atmosphere built by the screenplay.
