Gloomwood is a promising survival horror / immersive sim I’ve been tracking in the back of my mind for a while now – and now I’ve seen its inventory I’m even more excited.
I know, it’s just an inventory! But it’s pretty clever – and not just in an aesthetic way, either. The doctor’s bag is a functional object you place down on the ground to use, and it lets you drag objects you find inside and outside of it for immediate storage and use.
In the video below, we see how this works. The player takes a piece of cheese out of the bag and chucks it at a window, distracting the enemy.
