ARAYA is a free-to-play 3D first-person Action Horror Game that takes place in an abandoned hospital where a young Thai girl has gone missing. It can be played without the need for wallets or NFTs, but players can use $FEAR Tokens to acquire a flashlight that makes it easier to locate items. The game launched in Q3 of 2022 and is available for PC platforms.
Players assume the role of a woman who is investigating the case of a missing girl named Araya. It takes place in an abandoned hospital and the player must search for clues and items related to the case in order to progress. However, the hospital is also filled with terrifying object animations, sound, and jump scares that can occur at any moment, making it difficult for the player to complete the game without fear. Players must use their wits and courage to survive in the face of these risks and overcome the obstacles in their path.
Playing ARAYA requires a lot of courage as the game is designed to surprise players with random jump scares triggered by their actions. To succeed in the game, players must be aware of their surroundings and piece together clues to solve the overall puzzle. The combination of fear and fun makes for a thrilling experience, and players who enjoy being scared will find exactly what they're looking for in ARAYA. Personally, the jump scares had me on edge throughout the game and I'm sure other players feel the same way when the young girl appears on screen.
The Thai-themed hospital environment creates a truly terrifying atmosphere, with an overwhelming sense of animosity that can be too much for some players. But those who can handle the fear and complete the game will be rewarded with a basic earning system that allows players to earn $FEAR tokens simply by surviving and completing chapters.
ARAYA has been around since 2016 and was developed by MAD Studio before being brought to the blockchain by the FEAR team. While earning is not the main focus of the game, it provides a unique and simple way for players to earn rewards. The game's focus is on delivering a mild-to-extreme horror experience that horror fans will love. As someone who enjoys horror games, I highly recommend ARAYA as a great starting point for those looking to explore the genre. Can you make it to the end?
