Granny 3: Resurrection - A New Nightmare In town
Granny is an award-winning survival horror game released and developed by Dennis Vukanovic, also under the name DVloper. The story and game play, are primarily set in a rural community in Transylvania (now part of Romania), in which the protagonist, Granny, must fight to stay alive against the paranormal beings that have corrupted her home. Although this game seems like it may be nothing more than a run-of-the-mill horror game, it's actually much deeper than that - it explores themes such as guilt, power, family and relationships, while offering the player memorable and creepy enemies to fight. And its true plot is not what you'd expect: instead of a haunted house, or monsters attacking you from out of the darkness, your enemies are human children who have been warped into undead. These children have been transformed by an unknown force, and only one person stands between them and an absolute end: Granny.
The story begins with you waking up one morning after a night of peaceful sleep. When you go to check on your grandma, she's nowhere to be found, her bed and all, but she has a note for you... tell her you're awake and need her help. What you quickly find out is that Granny has been dead for five days. Now, armed with this new information, you find yourself thrust into a horror-filled maze, and only the power of your wits and your flashlight can guide you through the horror.
This Granny game follows in the footsteps of the excellent Android title, Granny Way. Both games feature the unique stylized point-and-click gameplay that makes both titles popular, but Android's gameplay is much more active and involved than the shoddy graphics and amateurish scripting of Granny. The graphics are clearly inspired by the PC version of DVloper: the colorful interface, clean design and relative ease of use make it very easy to pick up, but the random scribbling nature of the text is not something you'll pick up with just a couple of hours playtime. Even the most dedicated fans of horror fiction and RPGs might find that Granny 3: Resurrection has too many similar ideas floating around for their tastes; if you find yourself stuck at one point, save your game and come back to it later.
