Sine Requie: Snake Eyes combines alternate history mystery with horror RPG

It’s 1954 and Tuscany is in the grip of an undead apocalypse. As Inquisitor Rossano Mazzoni, your job in the upcoming RPG Sine Requie: Snake Eyes is to track down a dangerous cult, as you put together an investigation team and battle zombies. Set in an alternate 1950s, a decade after the dead began to rise during World War 2, Snake Eyes challenges you to explore the Italian countryside and towns through a 3D map, managing hunger, exhaustio, and sanity and talking with individuals in interactive fiction sections. Combat encounters and random events are drawn from a tarot deck of scenarios; while events might be handled through choices and more decisions, fighting is turn-ba…

Hidden Gem of the Week: Dark Echo

Hidden Gem of the Week: Dark Echo

Many horror games rely on jump scares and creepy atmosphere, but the stealth/horror/puzzle hybrid Dark Echo takes a different approach, instead conjuring horror from the unknown and unseen, through minimalist visuals and immersive audio. While other mobile games like Papa Sangre and The Nightjar have delivered gameplay through sound, Dark Echo melds visuals with sound; every level starts out with a black screen, your white footprints the only color amid the surrounding dark. Move forward and lines emanate in all directions, the sound of your footsteps visualized, bouncing off the walls and revealing the environment. Without sound, you are blind. Your goal is simply to find the exit. Howev…

Hands-on with Dark Fear, the first person, point and click, retro horror adventure... with RPG elements

Dark Fear is exciting stuff, not simply because it's mashing together a whole bunch of different genres. I mean okay, that's definitely a big part of why Dark Fear has me in a froth. Who wouldn't want to play something that's an almighty blend of Riven, Wizardry, and Home? But more than that, Dark Fear has this constant atmosphere of tension and a feeling of unease pervading throughout, whether that's through encounters with enemies that you only scrape through or the gloomy and oppressive world which you need to make your way through. I went hands-on with an early build, here's what the game looks like in motion.…

In Fear I Trust Review

Review EA Chillingo By Alex Beech, 4 years, 5 months ago
In Fear I Trust Review

In many ways, Black Wing Foundations' take on survival horror ticks all the right boxes. Spooky institutional setting: check. Freaky sanity and fear effects: check. But at some point during the process of freaking us out, In Fear I Trust shifts from unnerving to frustrating. Waking on a rickety bed in a Russian prison asylum, the hero of the tale has no memory of the events that lead him there. The door to his cell is locked, but everything he needs to escape is dotted around the room…
