Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden (Emotional Supernatural Dark Fantasy)

Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden (Emotional Supernatural Dark Fantasy)

  Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden was one of my most anticipated games of 2023. Like many other video games, it never releases on the initial date and was delayed until this February of 2024. The wait was well worth it. Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden has not disappointed. The game is a story-intensive action-RPG heavily focused on […]

Don’t Scream (Literal Title Psychological Horror)

Don’t Scream (Literal Title Psychological Horror)

  I finally had the opportunity to play Don’t Scream, which I saw snippets of several other gamers playing before I decided to jump in. It’s a walk-or-run horror experience set in the woods in 1993, where your trusty flashlight and video camera go out occasionally (pitch black equates to scary in videogames lol). You have eighteen minutes […]

Turnip Boy Robs a Bank (Brutal Vegetable Cute ‘Em Up)

Turnip Boy Robs a Bank (Brutal Vegetable Cute ‘Em Up)

  Turnip Boy Robs a Bank (TBRB) is a sequel to Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion (minor spoilers ahead), a self-proclaimed rogue-like for people who hate rogue-likes, and I don’t know of a better way to describe this ball of chaos in video game form than that. After the protagonist Turnip Boy kills god (yes […]

Demon’s Souls (The Dark Souls Before Dark Souls)

Demon’s Souls (The Dark Souls Before Dark Souls)

  Before the infamy gained by Dark Souls, From Software tried all of their groundbreaking ideas (arguably first) in the lesser known game called Demon’s Souls. Thanks to Bluepoint Games, Demon’s Souls is updated for modern consoles with systems and visuals built from the ground up. Unless you have vintage systems accessible (is the PS3 […]

Stasis: Bone Totem (Bury Thine Sins Under the Sea Bio-Horror Point-and-Click)

Stasis: Bone Totem (Bury Thine Sins Under the Sea Bio-Horror Point-and-Click)

  Stasis: Bone Totem was a game I first became aware of via MandaloreGaming, and the premise of an underground bio-horror station seemed compelling. I was not disappointed, and neither will you be. For fans of the old school, point-and-click adventure genre mixed with modern top-down isometric controls, Stasis: Bone Totem is a delightful bio-horror […]

Green Hell VR (Jungle Exploitation Actual Survival Horror)

Green Hell VR (Jungle Exploitation Actual Survival Horror)

  I heard the legends of the original first-person survival co-op Green Hell when it initially dropped and always intended on reviewing it, or having a writer do it for the site, but simply got caught in other releases and forgot about it. That was, however, until the VR version was announced by Polish developer […]

No Son of Mine (Shovel to the Head Unwanted Child Horror)

No Son of Mine (Shovel to the Head Unwanted Child Horror)

  I apologize to the dev for sitting on this one for so long but I was swamped. Ugh. Anyway, it never ceases to amaze me how often indie horror games smash the big names into the ground like so many unwanted children with shovels. If you haven’t figured out yet that’s going to be […]

Daymare: 1994 Sandcastle (Self-Aware Area 51 Sci-Fi Horror)

Daymare: 1994 Sandcastle (Self-Aware Area 51 Sci-Fi Horror)

  Having played the original, Daymare 1998, I was pretty stoked to hear about a sequel, or rather prequel since this is taking place four years prior. If you’re not familiar with its predecessor, it was a homage to the Resident Evil series, taking many of its ideas, purposefully, from the franchise, equaling what is […]

Alan Wake II (A Novella on Survival Horror)

Alan Wake II (A Novella on Survival Horror)

  2023 has been an outstanding year for video games, and no game is better evidence than Alan Wake II. Remedy Entertainment’s latest outing sees the titular character back in action in the world of Bright Falls, with better puzzles, mysteries, and characters (old and returning) to stave off the darkness. Alan Wake II is […]

Varney Lake (Pixel Pulp Vampiric Visual Novel)

Varney Lake (Pixel Pulp Vampiric Visual Novel)

  Oooooo, tasty, bloody, and pulpy. I was pretty excited about Varney Lake, not just for the Varney the Vampire references, but for the fact that it was an old-school PC text adventure horror game. Before it dropped the devs let me check out another title they did prior, Mothmen 1966, which was surprisingly deep. […]
