In The Devil In Me, the exploration mechanics are decidedly more action-oriented. The dilapidated hotel in which The Devil In Me takes place is filled with rugged terrain and potentially many nooks and crannies to find secrets. So it makes sense that there are more cues to jump on ledges, crawl under things, avoid hazards, and generally do more in the environment. As a result, it looks more interactive and cinematic, and could help make you want to spend more time exploring these environments, solving The Devil In Me’s supposedly seven-hour storyline. Because it sounds like there are a lot of different ways you can do it.

That said, a great deal of attention seems to have been paid to HH Homes itself, and this extends to the “murder castle” hotel with its meticulous attention to detail. The villain placed a number of saw-like traps around the building. One of them had two mannequins frighteningly chained to an actual saw. It pretty accurately tracks real-life traps found in a very realistic and very frightening hotel. So history buffs might be particularly interested in checking this out.
