The Exit 8 Review - 2

The Exit 8 from PLAYISM and KOTAKE CREATE is a short walking sim experience inspired by Japanese underground passageways, liminal spaces, and backrooms. It’s a game of the endless loop variety, so your task will be to find a way to break each cycle as small changes are introduced here and there. Your objective is to reach the titular exit 8, which shouldn’t be too hard if you’re paying attention.

Gameplay-wise, you’ll be controlling your character with the left analog stick or the D-Pad as you walk around and use the right analog stick to move your view as needed. Pressing any of the other buttons will make your character run. Yes, that does mean pressing the A, B, X, Y, L, R, ZL, or ZR buttons will make you run. Those are the controls. That’s all you’ll have to worry about, so that you can focus on finding any potential anomaliess.

This is a hard one to describe without spoiling the experience, and since it’s a game that you can complete in an hour at most, there’s not much I can tell you. Fine, let’s talk about breaking the first loop. If you keep walking toward where the signs point you, you’ll end up in the same corridor with the same guy walking toward you. This is your clue! As soon as you make your way through the corridor once and reach the same spot where the man starts walking toward you, all you need to do is quickly turn around and walk in the opposite direction. You’ll soon reach a sign pointing you toward exit 1, which means you broke the first loop!


The Exit 8 Review - 4

The Exit is a short walking sim experience inspired by Japanese underground passageways, liminal spaces, and backrooms. Be sure to pay attention to every little detail in the corridor. As soon as you spot an anomaly, you better turn around and run! If you do this right, you’ll see a sign pointing toward the next exit. Make a mistake, and you’ll be back at exit 0. Will you be able to escape? The Exit 8 is out on Nintendo Switch with a budget price of $3.99.
