Dbumps in the Night is my weeknightly stream of scary/spooky games; here, I'll be doing complementary articles on my impressions of what I've played.
One element from the story that none of these games address, and I wish they would, is the sound of a crying child that seems to be coming from 200 feet or so below whomever is descending the staircase, but never seems to get closer (save for in one report); it seems like it'd add that much more atmosphere, especially if descending enough floors actually did start to increase its volume. Additionally, I'm disappointed there are no encounters with the apparition where it approaches from behind, again like the third exploration report in the SCP file. -B
both have situations where you can get trapped between the bastard running at you from behind and a pitfall, but that's the closest any of the games come, and it's not any more impactful than any of the other scares. Small complaints, however, as on all other fronts. the first two 087 games do their job pretty well.
For those who'd like to play any of these themselves, I've collected links to places you can download all of them below, whereas the links on earlier mentions of the game titles lead to my playthrough streams of them on my Twitch.tv channel. If nothing else, check out the first two, and by all means, check out the story behind them (already linked), as well as some of the other delights the SCP Foundation has to offer. Some of them, like my personal favorite, SCP-097
, will give you chills even without a game to play by yourself in a darkened room.
