The demo didn't catch my interest too much, unfortunately...

I remember playing the demo of this a while ago. It worked well. Was a bit creepy, but not really my cup of tea.

Looks like something up my alley - will definitely give this one a go.
I wish the game also had 21:9 support, however the lacking of it is understandable due to the pre-rendered nature of the product:
