Frictional Games is the developer behind the award winning survival horror title on PC, Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Their upcoming indirect sequel, Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs, looks better than ever in the brand new teaser trailer and I can’t wait to get my grubby little hands on this title next year.
The developer’s explanation of the story goes (more…)

Lucius, the promising new horror adventure game from developer, Shiver Games and Publisher Lace Mamba Global, is moving ever closer to release. Today, Lace Mamba has revealed the a bunch of new screenshots and a brand new Intro trailer showing the horror at work.
In homage to classic horror film, The Omen, Lucius casts you as a demon child with the 666 mark of the devil. Possessed by the satanic lord of the underworld, you must fulfil a quest to kill Lucius’ family in order to inherit his family’s wealth.
We’ve been looking forward to Lucius ever since it was first demoed to us a couple of years back. The whole game takes place in a country manor that acts as a sandbox to orchestrate wicked accidents, letting you off members of Lucius’ family in a plethora of creative ways. Imagine the death scenes in Final Destination – only this time, the death is dictated by a 6 year old.

Slender was a free-to-play PC game that put players in a forested area looking for eight pieces of paper while avoiding the internet phenomenon terror known only as ‘The Slender Man’.
In our review of Slender, Charlotte said, “Slender Man is a horror adventure game with a difference. You are armed only with a torch and a pair of legs with minimal running capacity – and a handful of trepidation to boot.”

I should start this review by admitting I’ve never had an interest in episodic, QTE adventure games. But when it comes to a mega franchise like The Walking Dead (zombies, yay!), I couldn’t resist the pull of the genre any longer. I feel confident in saying I’m not the only one who’ll be jumping into new territory to play this game either, such is the pull of The Walking Dead ever since it’s TV debut in 2010.
But if there’s one thing I do know, it’s that developer Telltale Games is a powerhouse of this field, and despite never playing them, the success of their takes on Sam & Max and Monkey Island have resonated throughout the industry. At least my episodic virginity is in safe hands, then.
