SPOOKY G4MES: The Ghost Dimension

It’s heeeeeeeeeere

Banner Large

Welcome, welcome, guys and ghouls, to the fourth year of my Spooktober reviews! If this is your first haunted rodeo, I play and review 31 horror games for the month of October, one every day. They’re not all necessarily horror games, either, because I often mix in some creepy or Halloweeny titles in there too. What’s important is that they’re all in the spirit of the season, pitting you against monsters or ghosts or your own personal demons. If you’d like to see last year’s roundup, it’s right over here.

This year the lineup is another grab-bag of classics, big names, and indie joints that range from goofy to downright terrifying. The name is accurate for once because my collection this time leans heavily on ghosts, but also zombie and action titles. In fact, I have enough of some sub-genres to do themed weekends, so keep an eye out for those. There’s sure to be something for every one, no matter how jaded or green you are when it comes to horror.

Reviews will go up here on the website every day at 8 am PST, linked from a list I’ll be starting below, so check here first if you can’t wait to see what terror I’ve subjected myself to now. Sometime after that I’ll have the review up on Steam and everything proper linked from here, so even if you show up late you should have no problem finding the good stuff. At the end of the month I’ll break down all my discoveries by good and bad, and single out some singular titles for recognition.

And so, my little goblins, are you ready for this year’s tour de frights? If so, read on at your peril…
