We don’t normally do that over right here on the itch.io weblog however this week we’re double-double dipping. Yep, it’s buckwild over right here. Instead of simply recommending video games as soon as this week, we’re doing it twice. But the place does the second occasion of “double” in “double-double dipping” come from? We’re again with one other again of halloween video games. We did this a number of weeks again, however there are too many horror video games to restrict to only one put up. Consider this a set of bonus video games. Read on for the main points.
Is it potential to love and hate one thing on the identical time? If so, I like and hate Night of the Nun. Factually, Night of the Nun is a PS1-era horror throwback that stations the participant within the woods outdoors a boarding college in search of their daughter. Emotionally, Night of the Nun is a nightmare rollercoaster that’s the horror equal of getting smacked with a bat. In my time with Night of the Nun I used to be chased round claustrophobic hallways by a nun that cherished stabbing, hid from a nun that cherished stabbing, and solved puzzled to keep away from getting stabbed by a nun that cherished stabbing.
Puppet combo has been making terrible (learn: very scary) retro horror video games for some time now and Night of the Nun is certainly their finest but. I can’t actually suggest Night of the Nun per se, however if you happen to’re the form of masochist who’s tremendous into getting scared/ yelping at their pc monitor you then’ll adore Night of the Nun.
Whooo boy I like Midnight Scenes. Last 12 months’s entry within the sequence featured spooky Twilight Zone themed journey and this years…. Also options spooky Twilight Zone themed journey. Look, it’s not a sophisticated premise, okay? This time there’s a aircraft, some mild household drama, and much more completely unimaginable pixel artwork.
If you have been questioning how this sport seems this gorgeous, it’s as a result of the developer Octavi Navarro labored on Thimbleweed Park, and I assume made a cope with a wizard to get this good. Seriously, have a look at these pixels. Yikes, that’s fairly. If you missed final 12 months’s Midnight Scenes (go play it, I’ll wait) you’ll be excited to know that the sequence takes level and click on journey video games and simplifies them to put the emphasis on the tone and writing of the sport. If you’re a little bit of a coward like me, you may breathe simple as a result of Midnight scenes isn’t notably scary, however is actually spooky. Halloween video games don’t get higher than Midnight scenes. Seriously, you owe it to your self to take a look at Midnight Scenes.
I’m going to go forward and suggest this one only for the schadenfreude. When I used to be younger my neighborhood was a halloween vacation spot. I’m unsure why, however a whole lot of children would descend on my neighborhood for trick or treating. Unfortunately with trick or treaters come my nemeses: teenagers: This sadly meant that my jack-o-lanterns have been frequently stolen by the rudest age bracket. Pumpkin Thief permits me to retroactively take revenge on these scalawags by dropping again and again and over.
What Majik most likely had in thoughts whereas growing Pumpkin Thief was a tense jaunt via a graveyard whereas stealing pumpkins and being chased by “the guardian of the graveyard”. Pumpkin Thief might be fairly good at this if you happen to’re anybody else, however if you happen to’re concerned with punishing the titular pumpkin thief for the sins of their ilk, Pumpkin Thief is a masterpiece in catharsis. Either manner, it is best to most likely examine the sport out.
Do you could have any spooky video games that folk ought to play? Sound off within the feedback beneath.
