Thats meant to be literally grimdark pacman right? is it actually good or just a gimmick?

I don't know where you're getting grimdark, but it is pacman yes.

Whether it's good or bad probably depends on what you're looking for out of it. It was made by 1 guy and it shows, because it's pretty out there in both good and bad ways. The graphical and encounter quality varies a lot (some of it's great, while the last challenge was so unreasonable I had to turn on a "slower enemies" option for it to even seem possible). I bought it because I wanted to look at surreal and atmospheric environments and it definitely delivers there.

The actual pacman gameplay ends up being incredibly stressful in first person since you can't see exactly where things are behind corners or behind you, you can only hear them. The dash move leads to a lot of frustration since you want to dash as far as possible when running away, but if you aim it a hair too high then the dash is canceled and you'll probably get killed because of it. I enjoyed it the most when not in a pacman encounter since the atmosphere is really good, there's some great surreal stuff, and the level design has a lot of secrets and shortcuts to find.

Overall, it's definitely a thing, that I played.
