Sanitarium is a gripping and disturbing game which employs psychology and the fear of the unknown to keep players entertained for hours. Originally published in 1998, this platform is now considered to be a classic in terms of role-playing games.

Strategy and Gameplay

As the name suggests, Sanitarium is centered around a mental patient who has just been involved in an accident. The memory of the character is wiped and it must be reconstructed by exploring different mental worlds. Each presents its own series of riddles and obstacles that must be overcome. The main hurdle is that the player will need to differentiate between what is real, what is fantasy and what is utter lunacy. Thus, it is clear to see why this game has become so very popular over the years.

Extra Features and Options

Sanitarium is known as one of the most gripping psychological thrillers in existence. Impressive graphics (for its time), surreal mental worlds and the ability to interact with others throughout the game are a few of the benefits which are offered through this unique platform.
