Back in 2015, developer The Deep End Games started a Kickstarter for an indie project known as Perception with one of the mains selling points being that the team had members who originally worked on critically acclaimed games such as Dead Space and BioShock. Perception’s concept alone was enough to grab me once I saw the team behind it. Perception puts players in control of a blind woman, who mus...[Read More]
Horror games are all the rage. Whether its zombies, serial killers, the unexplained, or mystical, horror content will always be available as long as the public keeps buying it. It’s why we had to sit through seven SAW movies after all. Little Nightmares was sold to me on the basis that it preys on childhood fears. Maybe my childhood was different from an average kid, but I didn’t find anything abo...[Read More]
When you hear Friday the 13th, what comes to mind? A crazed killer stalking and disposing of overly horny teenagers in gruesome ways? How about one of the most successful slasher series of all time? Both are true, but what about video games? In the almost 40 year run of the series, only two have been made, one for the NES and now Friday The 13th: The Game on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.

It’s no secret that I love horror. Movies, games, TV shows, all of it. I have played every Silent Hill game, every Resident Evil game, and everything else that has come and gone. In this modern age of third person and first person horror games we have been given an amazing gift in Uncanny Valley by the Cowardly Creations development team.
Horror is something that’s not easy to pull off in any medium. Lucky for gamers its a little easier in the world of video games, if not a spectacle with more parts to use. Putting the player in the role of the character involved in the scary situation can take something that’s fairly tame in a movie and make it absolutely horrifying in a game. It’s wild how that little bit of int...[Read More]
Thunder Lotus Games released Jotun almost exactly one year ago, and its hand-drawn animation, bad-ass female Viking protagonist, and deep attention to Norse mythology gained them a solid fan base from the Kickstarter to the current Valhalla Edition. Now they’re back with the highly-anticipated sophomore effort, entitled Sundered. This announcement comes just before TwitchCon 2016, where thou...[Read More]
Back in June 2016, the developers of the Kickstarted horror game Allison Road announced the cancellation of the project. Fans everywhere shed tears as Allison Road picked up the hole of want left by P.T., which was going to be Silent Hills. However, Christian Kesler has decided to go forward with working on the game by himself after losing the support of Team17, the company that picked him up duri...[Read More]
