Protocol Games and Raiser Games have released the third episode for their multi-part horror series, Song of Horror. If you picked up a copy of the game but you’re finding yourself getting stuck in certain segments or you need some help solving some puzzles without wanting to risk killing off your favorite character due to the permadeath feature, well then you’ve come to the right place.
With that measure of housecleaning out of the way, let’s dive into Song of Horror: Episode 3.
YouTuber CJUGames updated his ongoing playlist for the Song of Horror walkthrough, capturing the first half of the episode, which you can check out in the video below.
The game attempts to expand its “diversity” by adding two additional cast members to the playable stable of characters.
You can play as either Daniel Noyer, Omar Nassiri, or the highly unattractive Grace Richards.
