Survival Horror


Given how much cash they bring in, it's tough to fault publishers for continually focusing on gussying up beloved titles instead of moving forward with new games. Resident Evil HD is just the latest example, as plenty we...


The derelict building was a sanctuary, a place to gather supplies and take shelter from the horrors of the outside world. I moved from one chamber to the next, anxiously investigating the structure, sighing in relief upon cle...

Chris "c3sk" Eskins is an independent developer with a vision. To be more specific, Chris' vision is a high-contrast thermal camera's point of view, looking down from the sky on a...


Playing the original Resident Evil was an experience. The mansion, the campiness, the mystery of it all -- before walkthroughs were easily accessible from all corners of the internet, getting lost was practically a given...


Dang, I need this game. Early Access continues to be a boon for open-world survival simulators, even unwavering artsy ones. It's a ways from DayZ's two million (a year ago) or Rust's half a million in a month, but still ...


[Art by Mariel "Kinuko" Cartwright] We're closing out our Project Scissors: NightCry pre-release interview series with director Hifume Kono by bringing the focus back on the historic pairing between developer K...


Creative Assembly's Alien: Isolation is a constant struggle for survival, and maybe more precisely, a neverending search for those few fleeting moments when you feel safe, even if you know danger's probably mere seconds...


The original Clock Tower was a cult hit when it was first released, and it's managed to stay fresh in the minds of horror game fans ever since. The Jennifer Connelly look-a-like lead; the shocking juxtaposition between quaint...


Earlier this month, our first look at Clock Tower spiritual successor Project Scissors: NightCry arrived in the form of a live-action trailer made by Ju-on and The Grudge director Takashi Shimizu. It was p...

The Dementium series pushed the Nintendo DS to its limits, and reaped the rewards from a legion of fans that enjoyed the series for years. It's probably Renegade Kid's most known project, and now a new generation will be...


Also, don't hide under a bed right after he begins to chase you. This is Until Dawn, Supermassive's cinematic PlayStation 4 game about eight friends vacationing at a lodge where a masked killer happens to be on the loose. Th...


[Update: As expected, Sega's official comment to Destructoid is "Creative Assembly is focused on their post-launch content for Alien: Isolation, and have no comment on plans for a sequel.] Without doubt, Alien: Isolation...


Oh, right -- there's a Season Pass for The Evil Within. The thought of paying $19.99 for three DLC packs when the game itself was just on sale for nearly that price is unappealing, but that's the situation. Part one, The Assi...


Anyone that's tried tackling Alien: Isolation on the toughest difficulty knows that it's a painstakingly hard endeavor. There's little room for error, as the alien is quite adept at adapting to your strategies. As if it ...


Ashen Rift is a nice-looking, post apocalypse shooter, etc. There was a Kickstarter, now there is a new one. It'll come to PC and PSN eventually. Now that the housekeeping is out of the way... DOG BALLS PHYSICS!!! My en...


An asymmetrical multiplayer game inspired by horror movies in which several players are the survivors trying to escape and one person is the seemingly unstoppable, omniscient killer. That's an idea I've wanted to see brought...


While covering the PC news desk at Destructoid I've been exposed to a lot of wonderful Kickstarter projects but it's rare that I come across one with as much visual polish as Pyroclastic Games' Ashen Rift: A man an...


"With savages, the weak in body or mind are soon eliminated; and those that survive commonly exhibit a vigorous state of health." -- Charles Darwin, The Descent of Man. It appears that the developers of DayZ may impleme...


Capcom has uploaded new screenshots from its high-definition Resident Evil remaster for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. There's a greater range of scenes and mutated enemies in this batch, including a Crimson Head, Lisa...


It feels like only a few weeks since Five Nights at Freddy's managed to completely ruin my childhood memories of family restaurants and dancing animatronics. The creepy horror/resource management game put you in the shoes of ...


Nic was only just telling us about Five Nights at Freddy's 2 and now here it is, available on Steam for $7.99 mere months after the original game's release. The rapid development schedule might sound concerning but early user...


There's certainly been intrigue surrounding Resident Evil: Revelations 2. Since its existence was leaked a few months back and several cryptic images of a derelict prison made the rounds, there has been speculation about what...


The last time we talked about the top-down shooter/survival horror hybrid Noct, all we had to go on were the few snippets of gameplay that were stitched together in the prototype trailer. Based only on what I saw in that trai...


When I think back to the Xbox 360 launch, a few games immediately come to mind: Kameo, Project Gotham Racing 3, and Perfect Dark Zero. You had to take what you could get in late 2005 and hope your console didn't red ring. Min...


You know how there's a new Alone in the Dark game stumbling out of Atari's HQ drunk enough to face the disappointment in all of our faces when it arrives? Yeah? Forget that game. Frederick Raynal, good-haired creator of the ...


Uncanny Valley, that promising survival horror game with the medical posters on the wall, has released a fun little Halloween video. There is a game within the game, an arcade cabinet called Anarchy Man, which you can totally play while you're playing the game. Of course, this may not be the best idea in a horror game...


Yesterday, Alone in the Dark: Illumination went up for pre-order on Steam. The "Eldritch Edition," as it were, with a mildly reduced price, exclusive weapon and character skins, blah blah blah. Today, Atari is finally showin...


This teaser trailer for Slasher Vol. 1: Summer Camp isn't much to go off, but the concept -- a third-person survival game inspired by '80s slasher films -- is strong enough that I'm listening. In this first game, you'll play...


Alessandro told us last week that Resident Evil was a difficult game to remaster. That's because it's more than a simple upgrade to HD. This Japanese video gives a bit of first-hand insight as to some of the features that Ca...


Techland has gone ahead and cancelled the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of its free-running, first-person zombie game Dying Light. It will still be available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One early next year. "After thorough internal tes...
