Voice-controlled horror game Stifled is on Steam Greenlight, worth a look

When playing horror games, I'm not really the type to yelp when things jump out at me. I might make a little "guh" noise when SCARY LOUD THINGS happen, but that's about the extent of it. Gattai Games' new first-person horror explorer Stifle...   read

Review: Dark Fear

I am probably a horror game maker's favorite sort of person. I scare very easily when it comes to video games. Movies, not so much, but video games, man, they get me. Like, was Resident Evil 4 supposed to be super scary or is that...   read

We're getting more Layers of Fear in August

Bloober Team is continuing the Layers of Fear story with Inheritance, an add-on coming to all platforms on August 2, and I think I'm down for more. The psychological jump-scares grew predictable well before the game concluded, but I though...   read

Capcom is still being coy about the Resident Evil 7 demo's finger

For weeks now, fans have been toiling away in and outside of the Resident Evil 7 demo hoping to figure out what, if anything, that damned dummy finger does. Based on an image Capcom sent out to Resident Evil ambassadors earlier today, the a...   read

The Problematic Translation of H.P Lovecraft

As many know, I am an unapologetic supporter of the horror genre. It allows for us to all feel one overwhelming emotion together in unity, while also telling a complex or surreal story with hidden themes and deeper messages. Perso...   read

Scorn looks gross in all the right ways

Scorn, a fleshy first-person horror adventure "set in a nightmarish universe of odd forms," popped up on Steam Greenlight today. You might not want to watch this teaser trailer in a crowded room. Elaborating on the gameplay since there's on...   read

Capcom promises there are no quick-time events in Resident Evil 7

I did not expect to come out of E3 pumped for a new mainline Resident Evil game, but here we are. The shift to a first-person perspective, the move away from "superhero characters" and absurd spectacle, the shroud of mystery -- Residen...   read

Allison Road developer's cancellation statement doesn't really explain anything

For those of you who aren't aware of the Allison Road saga, I'll explain it briefly. Once upon a time, there was a game (demo, really) called P.T. It was canceled by Konami presumably out of spite for Kojima, and it, and it's follow-up...   read

Here They Lie trailer is creepy, mostly monochrome, VR-compatible

There were a lot of trailers at this year's Sony E3 presser (and not much besides trailers, oddly enough), but the one they put up for Here They Lie was one of the ones that stood out for me. Not much is known about the game besides th...   read

Review: Edge of Nowhere
