I played a mystery game around 10 years or so ago. I believe you are a writer or journalist who receives a mysterious call to check out a small English village on the ocean. I am quite certain you have an English accent and are a man. I remember having to walk through the woods and it was quite foggy. The village seems to be misplaced from time. The colors of the game are dull/muted.
I remember at some point receiving a call from the same mysterious caller in a red English booth within the village. There were also ghosts. Not a shooter game but and similar to a point and click but I think you actually had to use controls to walk around. I also remember a part where you enter a cave from the beach and find something related to a mysterious ritual.
