This Pamali: Indonesian Folklore Horror walkthrough will scare the beejezus out of you

This Pamali: Indonesian Folklore Horror walkthrough for The White Lady story will freak you out

I have to admit, I am not the best at horror games. Not because I find them difficult, but because they scare me half to death.

Take the new indie game Pamali: Indonesian Folklore Horror — The White Lady.


Released by StoryTale Studios, a small independent developer from Bandung, Indonesia, the game introduces you to Indonesia culture by looking at one of its ghost stories — The White Lady.

As the game’s storyline tells it:

A young man named Jaka has just gone back to his hometown to sell his old family house. While he is unpacking, cleaning, and renovating the house, he disregards many of his family’s old belongings and creates rude remarks.

Not long after, he experiences mysterious and unexplained events. He eventually learns that the family has a secret and that he is not the only one in the empty house.

Now, after living in Thailand for 14 years, I already know I find Asian ghost stories far scarier than western ones.

That meant I would be watching a Pamali: Indonesian Folklore Horror walkthrough before I would be able to play the game myself.

After all, a walkthrough is generally less scary than your own gameplay, as you are a bit removed from the scares.


Or so I thought.

As, let me tell you, even watching a Pamali: Indonesian Folklore Horror walkthrough scared the bejeezus out of me. Because this indie horror game is seriously frightening.

The Pamali: Indonesian Folklore Horror walkthrough I watched was by YouTuber SHN Survival Horror Network.

He played the game blind, and with no commentary. In my mind, the latter making the game even more frightening as you really are immersed in the story.

Pamali: Indonesian Folklore Horror — The White Lady is only the first installment in a planned four-installment series of horror.

The first of the three DLCs in the series — The Tied Corpse — will be available in the first quarter of 2019. The other two will follow on in the second and third quarters of the year.

Should you buy Pamali: Indonesian Folklore Horror?

If you enjoy horror games, Pamali: Indonesian Folklore Horror is likely to become a big favorite. Especially as it is a short game, has over 35 different endings, so some replayability, and is an interesting look at an Indonesian ghost story.

It is also genuinely frightening.

Throw in the game is already inexpensive, and currently only 3.59 euros in the Steam sale. Or, if you buy the game bundle, which includes all three DLCs as well,  you can pick up the game and all upcoming content for 11.66 euros. Yes, it is well worth the price.

Now watch SHN’s Pamali: Indonesian Folklore Horror walkthrough, with just one of the 35 possible endings, in the video below.  Just be warned, you might not want to do it alone.
