Review: The Midnight Sanctuary Switch review – “A seriously enthralling story”

The Midnight Sanctuary Switch review - The Midnight Sanctuary is a very, very odd game. Take even a glance at some video or screenshots and you’ll understand.

Visually, it’s bonkers. The story goes full weird mode within half an hour and never lets up. Once it’s run its two hours, you’ll have more questions than answers.

It’s also a surprisingly difficult game to review, thanks in part to an almost complete lack of interaction – this is a seriously hardcore visual novel experience. But we shall try to give it a fair shake regardless.
