Knock-knock sounds like an amazing remake of Home Alone


9:00 AM on 09.20.2013



One of my favorite games growing up was Home Alone for the NES. It featured one simple concept -- all you had to do was run around a house that was only a few screens long, and elude the enemy Harry and Marv NPCs until the cops arrived. It was one of the first logic/strategy games I ever played, and I've retained a pretty vivid memory of it to this day.

Enter Knock-knock, a game that has already exceeded its goal in Kickstarter, and seeks to re-create the concept of hiding in your own house for a limited amount of time, but this time it's a little more dire. As a hermit, you have to survive until dawn as various ghosts seek to end your life by both avoiding them, and repairing your house so more can't enter. I have no idea if the game will end up being worth your time in the end, but right now I'm intrigued with the concept.

There's plenty of death in this hour-long The Evil Within video

Based on this hour-long play session of The Evil Within, I'm not expecting to be particularly scared by the game, but I am expecting to die quite a few times. Given its limited checkpoints, the fear of failure and having to ...more
