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. As a substitute of simply recommending video games as soon as this week, we’re doing it twice. However 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 couple of weeks again, however there are too many horror video games to restrict to only one submit. Contemplate this a set of bonus video games. Learn on for the small print.
Is it doable to love and hate one thing on the similar time? In that case, I like and hate Evening of the Nun. Factually, Evening of the Nun is a PS1-era horror throwback that stations the participant within the woods outdoors a boarding college on the lookout for their daughter. Emotionally, Evening of the Nun is a nightmare rollercoaster that’s the horror equal of getting smacked with a bat. In my time with Evening of the Nun I used to be chased round claustrophobic hallways by a nun that liked stabbing, hid from a nun that liked stabbing, and solved puzzled to keep away from getting stabbed by a nun that liked stabbing.
Puppet combo has been making terrible (learn: very scary) retro horror video games for some time now and Evening of the Nun is certainly their greatest but. I can’t actually advocate Evening of the Nun per se, however if you happen to’re the form of masochist who’s tremendous into getting scared/ yelping at their laptop monitor then you definitely’ll adore Evening of the Nun.
Whooo boy I really like Midnight Scenes. Final 12 months’s entry within the collection featured spooky Twilight Zone themed journey and this years…. Additionally options spooky Twilight Zone themed journey. Look, it’s not a sophisticated premise, okay? This time there’s a airplane, some mild household drama, and much more completely unimaginable pixel artwork.
When you have been questioning how this recreation seems to be this gorgeous, it’s as a result of the developer Octavi Navarro labored on Thimbleweed Park, and I assume made a take care of a wizard to get this good. Severely, take a look at these pixels. Yikes, that’s fairly. When you missed final 12 months’s Midnight Scenes (go play it, I’ll wait) you’ll be excited to know that the collection takes level and click on journey video games and simplifies them to put the emphasis on the tone and writing of the sport. When you’re a little bit of a coward like me, you may breathe straightforward as a result of Midnight scenes isn’t significantly scary, however is actually spooky. Halloween video games don’t get higher than Midnight scenes. Severely, you owe it to your self to take a look at Midnight Scenes.
I’m going to go forward and advocate this one only for the schadenfreude. After I was younger my neighborhood was a halloween vacation spot. I’m unsure why, however a whole bunch of youngsters would descend on my neighborhood for trick or treating. Sadly with trick or treaters come my nemeses: teenagers: This sadly meant that my jack-o-lanterns have been often stolen by the rudest age bracket. Pumpkin Thief permits me to retroactively take revenge on these scalawags by shedding time and again and over.
What Majik in all probability had in thoughts whereas creating Pumpkin Thief was a tense jaunt by 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 desirous about punishing the titular pumpkin thief for the sins of their ilk, Pumpkin Thief is a masterpiece in catharsis. Both method, you must in all probability examine the sport out.
Do you have got any spooky video games that people ought to play? Pontificate within the feedback under.
