The Bridge Curse 2: The Extrication – PC Review

I’m playing The Bridge Curse 2: The Extrication, although this is the second game from Softstar Entertainment, you don’t need to play the first. The game is out now and is available is on Steam for £20.99. I haven’t played the previous entry, but this game caught my eye with their Steam page saying it was also based on a popular movie. For the movie enthusiast out there, the two movies I found are The Bridge Curse (2020) and The Bridge Curse: Ritual (2023). There can't be darkness without light. Gameplay In The Bridge Curse 2, you will play from the perspective of four individuals, starting with the young reporter Sue Lian. Sue gets offered to interview the members of the film club at Wen Hua University. Like most horror games, things aren’t that simple, and she gets pulled into a n...

Exploring themes of religion, doubt, regret and the contrast between belief and the harsh realities of the world, Indika explores the tale of the titular young nun struggling against her metaphorical - and literal - demons in her head. Indika is a third person horror game with puzzle elements, developed by Odd Meter and published by 11 Bit Studios.

Jack Holmes: Master of Puppets – PS5 Review

Let's dive into a new horror game coming to PlayStation 5, called Jack Holmes: Master of Puppets. This new survival horror is already out on Steam but will be arriving on PS5 on May 2nd. I couldn't tell you the price but from checking Steam, I'd be guessing either £9.99 or £11.99.  Who's really pulling the strings here? We step into the shoes of the titular Jack Holmes, He gets a letter from his Aunt. The letter asks him to investigate the disappearance of a man named Frederick B. Since Jack hasn't had a job for a while he accepts it and heads out, but as we know with any horror he gets more than he bargained for.  Gameplay The game itself doesn’t have a lot in the ways of gameplay mechanics. You will be walking through various levels fending off against various monsters. The game ...

Deceit 2- PC Review

Deceit 2 is the sequel to 2016’s “Deceit.” It originally launched as a pay-to-play title in September of 2023 and has now been released as a free-to-play title as of April 3rd, 2024, coinciding with the console launch. Compensation will be granted to those who previously purchased the game in the form of the Werewolf DLC and some in-game currency. Upon logging into the game, I received a choice of legacy skin for playing the first game. Deception? In a game called deceit? Never... Deceit 2 launched to a rocky reception at first, with players highlighting the switch from free to paid play, and changes to the mechanics; with a majority of players sticking with the first game over the second. Now that the game has launched free-to-play and on consoles, is it worth a go? Gameplay Decei...

Pneumata – PC Preview

I got a chance to check out an early preview of the game Pneumata. The game is a survival horror FPS and was developed by Deadbolt Interactive and published by Perp Games. The game should be released sometime this year, but I don't have the specifics or pricing. You can add Pneumata to your wishlist like I have if you're interested. The hell is going on! Gameplay The segment I got to play for Pneumata had me exploring a detention centre. While investigating, I came across some plans to find explosives and use them to reach the medical wing. The gameplay is similar to later versions of the Resident Evil games, primarily the items and inventory. Your inventory has limited space and goes buy a grid system. I'm not sure if the player will be able to expand their storage, but you can offlo...

Sker Ritual – PC Review

I'm checking out the new game from Wales Interactive called Sker Ritual. The name might ring some bells as they did have a previous horror game as well called Maid of Sker. Although, that entry was a single-player horror experience. Their new game, however, takes a rather bold direction by switching to a round-based zombie shooter similar to Call of Duty Zombies.  You and up to three friends can fight waves together as Sker Ritual is available now on Steam for £19.99. The game is still in early access, but its full 1.0 release will be on the 18th of this month. There's a demo also available for the game for those looking to try before you buy. Nôl i mi eu heneidiau! From the Steam page, the Sker Ritual takes place after the events of Maid of Sker. The story primarily will appear throu...
