Lo-fi Frightener: Hide


I just spotted this extremely minimal horror-FPS over on Denby's free games round up, and it's worth taking a look at. It's a clunky, grainy first-person game set at night in a snowy wood, under distant searchlights and sirens. The object of the game is find five locations, and read the five plaques, before the thing that is searching for you - some kind of disturbing mobile searchlight thing light - manages to find you. Sprint and you'll get out of breath and need to stop to recover. It's stupidly lo-fi and quite tricky to find your way about, but it's startlingly atmospheric for a game of so little content.
