Full review

The Quiet Ones have returned in The Quiet Ones: Sker Island, a thrilling round-based survival FPS and spin-off to the acclaimed British horror game, Maid of Sker! This game takes players on a chilling journey as they face hordes of new and familiar enemies, powerful elites with supernatural abilities, and upgradeable steam-punk weapons.

Whether you prefer playing solo or teaming up with friends online, The Quiet Ones: Sker Island offers an intense experience for all. Even if you find yourself short of teammates, fear not! The intensity of the hordes scales according to the number of players. And if you need assistance or want to connect with other players, there's always the official Sker Ritual Discord community.

Beyond just facing off against old enemies from Maid of Sker, this spin-off introduces new elites that will challenge your tactics and force you to adapt your playstyle. Additionally, there are plenty more new faces—some without faces at all—who are eager to bring destruction upon Sker Island.

One interesting mechanic in The Quiet Ones: Sker Island is the opportunity for enemies to drop powerful Miracles when defeated. These Miracles offer random upgradable powers that can enhance your shooting skills, melee attacks, grenade usage and healing capabilities. With a fifth slot reserved for your Ultimate ability—a chargeable action—you'll have plenty of strategic choices at your disposal during those tough encounters.

To further personalize your character's appearance and add an extra layer of horror-themed fun, The Quiet Ones: Sker Island allows players collect interchangeable masks inspired by various genres—from folk tales to gothic horror, zombie apocalypse scenarios, science fiction elements, and even supernatural themes. Customize how you strike fear into the hearts of those inhabiting Sker Island!

If you ever find yourself low on supplies or in need of new weapons, fear not—The Laughing Policeman's booth can be found at various locations around the maps. This vendor offers a wide range of guns, ammo, and more. You can buy stock munitions or take a gamble with a randomly picked weapon, which may come with higher base stats. Additionally, The Laughing Policeman's SUPER CHARGER provides unique upgrades to enhance your weapons with steam-punk inspired enhancements and bonus buffs! Climbing the ranks of weaponry has never been so artistically exhilarating!

Overall, The Quiet Ones: Sker Island is an intense and engaging game that builds upon the successful formula of Maid of Sker. With its thrilling gameplay, spine-chilling atmosphere, and strategic mechanics, it offers hours of excitement for both solo players and those looking to team up online.
