You move the mouse around the screen to select different objects to interact with or pick up. The cursor changes shape into a hand when hovering over an interactable object, but there isn't guidance on what objects do what and when to use them, leaving it up to player intuition to deduce. There are also no difficulty settings. There is no need to do things against the clock or to have fast or precise reactions.
There are loud jumpscares and flashes throughout, accompanying the strong horror theme. While you can lay without sound, much of the atmosphere is lost as a result.
There are written notes you collect throughout the game, and while the text is high in contrast and can be set to a dyslexia-friendly font in the settings menu (not enabled by default), the text isn't particularly large and the size cannot be adjusted.
The game is often very dark and low in contrast, with colours being very similar, which is important to note for colourblind and partially-sighted players.

Assistance Getting Starting
These features aid your play of the game in terms of cognitive load on learning controls, dealing with pressure and coping with the environment and challenges.
Reaction-Time Not Critical: Individual game actions don’t need quick reactions, or there are settings to lower the requirement for quick reactions. This means you don't need to quickly press a button in response to an on-screen prompt, target a fast-moving target or skillfully complete a scenario against the clock.
Low Pressure: Game tasks aren't time-limited or there's a low-pressure mode. This avoids the pressure of being put on the clock for overarching missions, or failing tasks because you didn't reach a destination in time.
