Dead State Dev’s Panic At Multiverse High! Gets Demo

Panic at Multiverse High! [official site] has been out for over a month already, but now you can try before you buy in a new demo. It’s Dead State developer DoubleBear’s take on a dating sim set in a high school where things are a bit… off.

Slayaway Camp Is A Cult Horror Puzzle Game

Slayaway Camp [official site] is a free game in which you play the killer in a collection of old VHS movies, slaughtering the hapless cuboid characters who are foolish enough to Kum Ba Yah and cuddle by the fires and hot springs of the titular camp. The whole thing is presented as an isometric puzzle game – you slide the killer around each level, trying to kill every victim without falling in a pit or trapping yourself between two obstacles.
