The antagonist will often gaslight the protagonist, however it is subtle and more contextual.

Not squashed, but in one of the flashbacks one of the characters has her head hit several times with a stone, which leads to her death. The scene is heard, but not seen.

A variety of torture devices is present. Around each of them you hear audial flashbacks of people getting tortured and killed. In one scene you pick up a knife and use it on a tied up man in front of you. The scene then cuts to black, but you still hear the man screaming in pain.

In some parts you have to jump and climb high places,and it's possible to die by falling, though not necessarily. May make people with agoraphobia feel unwell.

Well there aren't traditional jump scares however as a horror game you are bound to be caught off guard and scared. Scripted events may count as jump scares however the sound is not loud.

In the dlc Justine a character mentions self harming. In the main game the protagonist will do acts of self harm to progress such as piercing his finger but this is more implied.

This is not body dimorphia. Body dysmorphia is a disorder where someone fixates on “flaws” in their body. There is no dysmorphia in this game

There is a sanity feature. If it lowered the protagonist will breathe heavily and even fall down. Some traumatic memories and places will also trigger this in the protagonist.

Many unsettling sounds are heard from afar throughout the game and I think they include baby crying. It's unclear wheter they're flashbacks or real sounds.

A few audio flashbacks involve characters swearing, such as one of Alexander's servants calling him a "piece of sh*t" and Daniel calling someone a "b*tch".

At one point of the game you have to fill a crate with water, from which you hear faint murmuring. It ceases only after the crate getting filled completely. It's unclear. whether it's real or just another flashback.
