Late Night Wanderer is a free indie horror game. Explore seemingly deserted city streets as you make your way home.
Take to the streets
Late Night Wanderer is one of many free horror walking simulators with a somewhat unique twist. Instead of the typical dark house, the game instead focuses on more familiar and effective scary elements: dark city streets, being alone at night, and having a phone with 11% battery. The game follows the typical pattern of walking a defined route for around ten minutes with a few jump scares and audio spikes thrown in for good measure. While Late Night Wanderer is certainly not a stand out entry into the genre, it is better than many. One of the major complaints is (spoilers) no actual threat exists. Many similar titles have a demon or ghost which has to be avoided but no such entity is present here. While it could be said that this puts the focus more on psychological fear, a near total lack of gameplay makes it feel pointless.
Late Night Wanderer is ten minutes of mediocrity with an interesting premise.
