Boo! is a pumpkin-painting puzzler for spooky month

Today the news troughs are suspiciously empty. The cowards of industry know that Destiny 2 is coming out later today and they have, perhaps wisely, scuttled into their development holes to formulate a coping strategy for the first true tempest of the blockbuster season. It’s the newscalm before the Destostorm. To alleviate the stress of having no articles to post, I'm playing Boo! It’s a…

Screampark: Secret World Spin-Off The Park Released

Funcom's latest adventure into the spooky world of The Secret World isn't the single-player version I've wished for, but they are revisiting a memorable location from the supernatural MMORPG. The Park [official site] is a spin-off horror walk-o-story set inside Atlantic Island Park, a haunted fairground where now a mother has lost her young son. Don't get your hopes up, lady. But you, dear reader,…

Boo! Lucius II Rising On Friday The 13th (Of February)

Halloween. Scareday, they call it. The dream release date of every horror game is October 31st, the one they call The Big Spooker, Boosday, or Satan's Flatwarming. If that's too far away, though, developers can always fall back on Friday the 13th. We've got three of 'em this year, and Lucius II: The Prophecy [official site] is looking to make 2015's first ᴅᴇᴠɪʟɪsʜ. Shiver Games…

Boo! One Late Night: Deadline Released

You might have seen One Late Night doing the rounds on YouTube last year. A short, free horror game about trying to escape from your locked offices while uncovering a spooky story, it had a goofy ghost trying to find you to spook you good. Jump scares are big nowadays, you know. But, as Adam recently found with Five Nights at Freddy's 2, that's no…

No, Not Boo: The Humble InDIE Bundle

I don't know what's scary enough about the 'Humble InDIE Bundle 13' to warrant that extravagant stylisation. Are we to imagine ᴏᴜʀ ʟɪᴍʙs sʜᴀᴛᴛᴇʀɪɴɢ ʜᴏʀʀɪʙʟʏ as we virtually skate in OlliOlli? Will Jazzpunk make us ʟᴀᴜɢʜ ᴏᴜʀsᴇʟᴠᴇs ᴛᴏ ᴅᴇᴀᴛʜ? Is the ɪɴᴇᴠɪᴛᴀʙʟᴇ ᴄᴏʀᴘᴏʀᴀᴛᴇ ᴅʏsᴛᴏᴘɪᴀ of Shadowrun Returns meant to be depressing? Do they really think we're afraid of Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs' ʟɪᴛᴛʟᴇ ᴄᴜʀʟʏ…

Roguelikelike Horror FPS Phantasmal Haunting Kickstarter

I can only write boo! so many times before it stops making you convulse in terror. I've probably exhausted that. But what if I were to say wooOoOOo! or the sound of a dracula laughing? Why, look at you: you're shivering and shrieking all over again! Unpredictability can help sell scares, see, which is why frightful FPS Phantasmal's spooky mansion is made of procedurally-generated levels,…

Android Nightmare: 2D Horror Uncanny Valley’s Demo

We've had a gander at the android nightmare of Uncanny Valley before, at its dark laboratories draped in synthflesh and filled with mannequins and metal skeletons. Now you can wander those frightful places, ducking behind servers and fleeing from horrible things, as developers Cowardly Creations have release a demo for their 2D survival horror. Boo! Don't worry, that was just me attempting to startle you…

Boo! Lords of the Fallen Coming On Halloween

I like Halloween. I like the spooky music, the spooky movies, the spooky costumes, the spooky canapés, the spooky cocktails, the spooky video games--all the spooky things. Not to mention the cheap fake blood. The first video game to draw a circle around October 31 with a red pen this year (or is it blood? is it your blood?) is Lords of the Fallen, declaring…

Shock! Horror! The Evil Within Delayed Into October

The monsters we fear reflect anxieties of the era, some say. Frankenstein's creature is unmediated ambition of science. Godzilla was atomic weapons. Vampires are sexuality or, alternatively, posh people. Zombies are death or boredom or something I don't know I mean I glaze over any time someone starts to lecture me on them. What about the 21st century's first big new monster, The Slender Man?…
