Top 5 Horror Games To Watch In 2014:
1) Among The Sleep:
Among The Sleep is an Indie horror adventure. Where you play as a two-year-old child, exploring their house in the middle of the night. The idea of playing as a child is fascinating to say the least, seeing the world through a child’s eyes is sure to present some creatively unsettling moments.
2) Routine: Is a first person horror exploration game set on an abandoned Moon base. The premise: survive long enough to learn what happened to everyone stationed here. What makes Routine even more interesting is that there are no health packs and no second chances – the permadeath system ensures that if you should encounter what actually lurks aboard the Lunar Research Station, you’ll probably have to start right back at the beginning.
3) Outlast: The Whistleblower: You may have already played Outlast, But this dlc seeks to fill in the history of Mount Massive Asylum. You play as the Whistleblower, whose tip brought the original protagonist Miles Upshur to the asylum in the first place. You’ll witness the experiments that led to the downfall of the asylum and unearth terrifying new secrets.
4) Daylight: In Daylight you wake up in an abandoned hospital in an empty ward without any recollection of who you are or why you’re there. Only knowing you have to find a wat out. Like a few games on this list Daylight realises that vulnerability is key to fear. You’re equipped with no weapons or items, apart from a phone. It’s your only tool and your only source of light. Unique to Daylight is procedurally generated levels ensuring play-throughs are always distinct.
5) The Forest: Has you play as the sole survivor of a terrible plane crash on an idyllic island inhabited by ravenous cannibals. You’re free to explore its dense, forest, chop down trees, craft items, build shelter and scavenge for food. Its kind of like a nightmare fueled Minecraft, that makes you deal with the predicaments you get yourself Into and the consequences of how you get your self out. -Frankie
