Still Wakes the Deep Ratings & Reviews

The Jimquisition

by James Stephanie Sterling

9.5 / 10

Still Wakes the Deep is an impeccable horror production, a gorgeously sickening nightmare in a rarely used setting propelled by stellar acting and sublimely nasty body horror. It’s more than just “The Thing on an oil rig,” though it makes good on that elevator pitch too. It’s going to remain with me for a long time. A true genre classic.

86 / 100

An emotive story that is equal parts terrifying and traumatic.


by Leon Hurley

This is a great, if short, horror game with impeccable looks and fantastic atmosphere. It's scary and full of character, but with a barely five-hour run time your enjoyment could depend on what you paid for it.
