Review: Daylight photo
Review: Daylight
by Caitlin Cooke

I've been an enthusiast of the horror genre ever since I laid hands on Eternal Darkness for the GameCube. Although not a fair comparison to many survival horror games since, I’ve understood what it takes for a game to creep under your skin and leave a lasting impression. Daylight, unfortunately, is not one of those games.

Daylight manages to hit every generic horror trope in a less-than-meaningful manner and with limited mechanics. Within the three hours of gameplay I did manage to find some scares, but they were few and far between and rarely left me wanting more.

As much as I like being scared, there's a sense of dread I have to overcome before returning to horror games I've already played through. Perhaps you'll find yourself in a similar situation after watching this effective trai...

Uncanny Valley does survival horror in 2D photo
Uncanny Valley does survival horror in 2D
by Steven Hansen

I got a bit of a The Shining (stylistically crossed with Gods Will Be Watching) vibe in this trailer for Uncanny Valley, but that quickly jumped to more overtly terrifying fare.

Still impressive when a pixel art, 2D game can do scary -- like Lone Survivor. Nice sound design helps that cause. Uncanny Valley is up on Indiegogo right now. I think it looks promising. And that bit of levity at the end of the trailer was cute.

Corpse Party: Blood Drive will give you nightmares

I'm not exactly sure why I enjoy the Corpse Party series. The games give you likable casts of characters and just enough time to become attached to them, before ripping it all away and going to a very dark place.  Corps...

I hope The Eldritch Cases: Dagon is Lovecraft done right

It's been quite a while since a game did the Cthulhu mythos, created by HP Lovecraft, really well. Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth was an inspired but uneven game and that came out in 2005. The Eldritch Cases: Dag...
