Observer: System Redux Review

Observer is a horror game developed by Bloober Team, known primarily for Layers of Fear and the Blair Witch game, and published by Aspyr. The original game was developed in August 12, 2017, then expanded as System Redux as a separate game in November 10, 2020. Its focus is psychological horror, and it's tense atmosphere.

No, that isn’t right, they are animal heads beautifully rendered in photographic detail meshed onto human bodies. It is extremely disconcerting finding yourself
