It’s Finally Time to Talk About Friday the 13th: The Game!

Since I first posted an update with the amazing news that the game had been funded nearly 2 years ago, I’ve been completely radio silent on the subject, including the 3 months now that the game has actually been released! This is particularly strange considering the following: Horror is my favorite movie and game genre […]

From the Creators of Layers of Fear: >observer_

I previously wrote about how blown away by Layers of Fear I was, so I was definitely on board with whatever Bloober Team developed next. And that next project came in the form of >observer_, a cyberpunk horror mystery, which I enjoyed thoroughly. >observer_ is drenched in atmosphere. Specifically, the game is most heavily influenced […]

I Like Me Some Walking Simulators: Perception

“Walking Simulator” is not a term that I consider to be derogatory. In fact, it’s one of my favorite styles of gameplay in video games. A walking simulator game is generally a game that doesn’t have a lot of interactivity like: driving, combat, or anything else that involves button-mashing. It’s a game where, for the […]

Falling Through the Cracks: Zombies Chronicles

When I was a much younger horror fan, I obsessively scoured the internet for hours, every day, for any picture, snippet, interview, preview, or rumor I could get my hands on for upcoming horror releases. When I was in school and in study hall, I’d always pretend to need to go to the library to […]

Outlast II is Reverse Children of the Corn

I very much expected to enjoy Outlast II because I enjoyed the first one, but was truly blown away at just how rich of a setting the sequel is set in. Heavily influenced by: Children of the Corn (or reverse Children of the Corn as I said because here we have the adults killing off […]

My First Trip into Wolfenstein

If you could simplify my life into one simple idea, it would be very much like the character in the classic Twilight Zone episode “Time Enough at Last.” I’m not very fond of society in general and at least once a day, I find myself thinking “There simply isn’t enough time in the whole world.” […]

The Last of Us: Part II — Reveal

The Last of Us was a watershed moment in video game history. Gaming had become more cinematic for a long time, but nothing quite at the true level of a substantial dramatic and emotional film had been achieved in video games. Like what Breaking Bad did to raise the bar for television, The Last of […]

Interview with Krillbite: Developers of Among the Sleep

Lately, I’ve been on a bit of a binge playing exploration/walking simulator games. While I’ve enjoyed them all, I was most compelled to reach out to Krillbite Studios about their game Among the Sleep, because I could relate to it so much on a personal level. HL: Let’s get the dark stuff out of the […]

Horror Video Games Master List

To my surprise, I couldn’t find a truly complete, definitive, master list of all the horror video games that were ever created anywhere online. At first glance, that may seem like an impossible, certainly daunting task, but not really if you think about it. We’re talking about one of the mediums of storytelling with the […]

Layers of Fear: Like Going Inside a Nightmare on Elm Street Film

With the game Layers of Fear, I think outside of there being VR support for the game (Update!) or maybe a sequel some time in the future, this is perhaps the closest anyone will ever get to feeling the experience of living a Nightmare movie. This game is crammed full of amazing visuals, creative scares, […]
