Syndrome Is Determined To Become The New Face Of Sci-fi Survival Horror

You wake up on a spaceship, dazed and confused from the effects of cryosleep, and begin to search for the rest of the crew. Where could they have gone? All too suddenly, you discover that most of them are dead, and those still alive are… changed.

With Syndrome, Camel 101 takes first person survival horror back to its roots. In the dark confines of the ship, defending yourself is difficult and not always possible. There are a few weapons scattered about, but nowhere near enough ammunition to deal with all the transformed monstrosities.

Heavily Based In The Mythos Of HP Lovecraft, Euclidean Will Be Creeping It’s Way Onto Steam This Month

The Alpha Wave team has released a new trailer for Euclidean ahead of the game’s September 25th launch on Steam. It does a good job of capturing the tension and atmosphere of this haunting game. It’s not horror in the traditional sense… but something is certainly amiss.

Behind our comfortable, familiar dimensions, beyond the timeless depths of space, there is a Place that mankind was not meant to know. A Place hostile to all life. We do not belong there. We cannot survive there. At least, not for long… Euclidean; a game of geometric horror; a slow descent into the dark, into madness, futility, and despair, where things greater than you watch and wait and dream. Struggle for every second of life you have left…

Even knowing you’re better off dead.

Why I’m Eagerly Awaiting Batman: Arkham Knight Or How A Videogame Reignited My Passion For Games?

Even though we’re less than 24 hours away from the release of Batman: Arkham Knight, allow me to take a moment to share why I’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of Rocksteady’s final chapter in their Arkham trilogy. Of course in order to get a full understanding of my point of view, I need to provide you with a little bit of my backstory in order for it all to make sense.

I was fairly young when my Dad brought home our first gaming console, the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). In all honesty I can’t even remember when he brought it home, it just feels like it was always there. We may not have had much growing up, but I had my NES and I couldn’t even begin to imagine how many hours of my childhood I dedicated to the original entries in the Super Mario Bros franchise. For most people videogames were/ are a means of entertainment, for me it was a means of escape. No matter how rough things got at home, I always had a means of leaving it all behind and losing myself in another world. If I didn’t have this means of escapism available to me, at such a young age, I’d hate to think how different things would’ve been.

P.T. The Creepiest Gaming Experience To Date…

When I finally had an opportunity to read about the upcoming title Silent Hills, several months had already passed since it was announced. But I was intrigued, to say the least, and couldn’t wait to start reading actual news pertaining to the project. However considering it’s being helmed by Hideo Kojima, the creator behind the successful Metal Gear franchise, and famed writer/ director Guillermo Del Toro, it’s all but certain that they’re going to be developing a finished product that is worth playing.
