Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Let kids play

I’m surprised the age rating is so high. I play this with my 8 year old and we love it. Outside of the occasional jump of being caught by the neighbor it isn’t scary or violent at all.

Hard to play, still fun.

This game will take a long time to learn. The in-game tutorial will not suffice. Most of this game's scaryness comes from the lack of visibility and the urge to look behind you every few seconds. Having your back turned for too long can be your end. Really. The neighbor only makes grunting sounds every few seconds, so he can really catch you off guard if you're not prepared.
