Description: You are a detective in Wales and have been asked by the Prince regent, king George the 4th, to go and investigate an old Asylum that has for decades been the subject of mystery and fear. Reports of, paranormal activity, and misconduct from the staff. All you have as any clues to what is going on there are the reports of a Dr. Hereford, A young doctor from England that moved out to the asylum 30 years ago to study three patients that were having shared delusions. The problem is that you only have one page of the report. Through the game, you will find keys to unlock doors, objects that will help you get through puzzles, and pages of Dr. Hereford’s report that tell us the story of what happened.

Review: ‘Crowhille – Detective Case Files VR’ is a…slightly broken horror adventure game in which you are trying to find a missing person or something like that. From the start this PS1 looking game is broken and glitchy with the monsters being truly terrible and not even being able to kill you. But that is OK, because even with a gun you can’t kill them anyway, only pause them. Oddly, there is a good amount of content here with little missions and puzzles to solve. But it is all so…poorly made that playing this game is like wading through treacle. At the end of the day, I find the small price is just about justified because you can take a good hour or two to finish this game. Yes, it’s buggy and terrible, but if you are willing to fight through those things you will just about find your money’s worth here (which is not a lot). Yes, I have given this a Bronze award, but its length still makes it worth a look if you are desperate for something to play.
