    Placing the player in an environment and making them feel alone. Games often use this for atmospheric effect.

    Short summary describing this concept.

    Isolation last edited by Doron_B on 12/26/18 06:29AM View full history


    Isolation is when the player is cut off from the outside world and thus feels alone. This can make him feel stressed, uncomfortable and even depressed. Games that have isolation in them usually try to set an atmosphere, which is why they're usually found in horror games.

    Isolation can be found in the following places:

    • On a distant planet
    • In an empty underground complex
    • In a space station

    The feeling of isolation is only achieved by the fact that the player is alone and not interacting with any NPCs.The places you'll visit are usually dark, grimmy and claustrophobic. These games are best played alone, with the ligjts out.
