The Official Horror game Thread!! Lets put those headphones to good use! - Page 16

post #226 of 318

Here's another Slender-type game. Not horror as in scary, but definitely dark and surreal. This one is a combination of island-simulation/ exploration and survival horror. Brutally unforgiving but very immersive. 

 

 

 

 

 

"Miasmata is not an adventure game in the traditional sense. Indeed, there’s almost nothing traditional about it. It tries many new things, succeeding wildly at a few of them. It’s certainly not for everybody—if the idea of playing jungle botanist doesn’t sound at least a little intriguing, you’re going to want to look elsewhere. But for those of you with a well of patience, a strong stomach, and a green thumb, Miasmata is a rejuvenating, fresh slice of gaming. It’s immersive, mysterious, harsh, serene, terrifying, beautiful, and hideous all in one go."

yeah I have played that and a few other slender/esk games as of late. Not really that scary; the first time you play them is the scariest for sure.

Yeah, after all the Marble Hornets etc. and the other Slender games it's just not the same, although I have to admit the Arrival is quite good for the money, especially with the Proxies. It's kinda keeping you on your toes when you hear footsteps around you and you know it's not the usual sound effects to raise the tension but actual footsteps

Also, I don't know how Daylight will stack against Outlast but looks promising

I've been playing ZombiU lately and it's a great game that can be very tense. There's nothing like going into a new area to see there are 10 or so zombies and you only have two rounds left in your handgun and no health packs.. I tell ya it gets your blood pumping.

I got a gamecube/wiii emulator working. Been playing the resident evil HD-remake. that's some clenchingly tense gameplay on hardmode. I totally forgot about the crimson head thing....so yeah; imagine my shock and horror when the screaming and running happened after I through "Hey, did I kill all the-OH GOD NO!" *You are Dead* and now I have to figure out how to not die....

post #233 of 318

Hey,

 

Indeed Remake is good, but I wish they'd do an HD version of these in full 1080p, widescreen, and high resolution model/backgrounds, along with 5.1 support.

So The Legend is a project on Steam Greenlight and hopefully will get a green light soon. It will be using the CryEngine 3, so we should expect Crysis level of detail. Also for the people who aren't familiar with this - The Legend will be a Slender game but according to the devs will be taking a different take on the legend of him and obviously just like the Faceless project they might not be able to use the Slender Man name, so they'll go with the Operator and delve deeper into the myth. The devs claim it will have a real story and won't be based on page collecting, so hopefully we'll finally have a proper Slender game and it won't turn into Slender: The Arrival. The Legend's devs say that they have a completely different take on the Slender's appearance but they'll won't be revealing it.

Condemned has some good effects. At least I shat bricks with my FA-003's on.
