The game was rather poorly received by the critics, who praised the atmosphere and the horror aspect, but criticized the nonsensical puzzles and a rather incomprehensible story. However, the game proved to be fairly popular with the audience; it became something of a trend to make video walkthroughs of it.

It was released again in 2013 as an 'extended edition' that features completely retooled puzzles, a new inventory system, 5 new endings, some changes to the scare system, and some redone translation work. It was given for free to original customers, and critics' opinions improved dramatically, with its initial 55 Metacritic rising up to a 75. This version of the game is available on UsefulNotes/{{Steam}} and other places.
