What Difficulty Should You Play Maid of Sker On?

Maid of Sker review

Maid of Sker has three difficulty options to choose from – easy, normal and hard. But which one should you choose?

Ultimately, the difficulty option you go for is down to you. Due to the nature of the game, we’d recommend an easier difficulty – but if you like a challenge, and care about achievements, then you may want to go for hard.

The difficulty option primarily affects how much damage your protagonist, Thomas, can take before he passes out. The harder the difficulty then, the easier it will be to die. Hard difficulty also has fewer save points. These are already scarce in Easy and Normal mode, so that’s something to take into consideration.


Maid of Sker has no autosave function, so you can only save your progress by visiting a save point. Considering how many enemies are around, it’s very easy to get knocked out, and taken back to the last save point. Hard difficulty then, with fewer save points and enemies causing more damage to Thomas, may be a recipe for utmost frustration.

There is an achievement available for completing Maid of Sker on hard, so if you care about achievements, then you might want to tackle it. But we’d suggest sticking with Normal or Easy. Good luck.
