Lakeview Cabin Collection Goes Alien-y In Episode 6

From Friday the 13th to Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Roope Tamminen’s Lakeview Cabin Collection [official site] offers little sandbox deathworlds inspired by horror films of the ’70s and ’80s. They’re… non-linear violent adventure games? No, I still don’t know how to describe this. Each episode turns characters loose in a little horror movie setup to survive any way they can – you get to try the things you shout at characters to do, basically. Or try to. Now the Collection is complete with the release of an Aliens-y, Thing-ish episode and a little epilogue.

Horror Anthology Lakeview Cabin Collection’s New Ep

Lakeview Cabin Collection is a fascinating thing, an episodic sandbox action-puzzler with oodles of items to use in many ways and ultimately only one puzzle: “How can I stop horror movie slashers from stabbing me to bits and wearing my face?” I’m very bad at it, but I do enjoy poking around, getting drunk, finding weapons, and trying to set unlikely traps before I’m brutally murdered.

The first episode (confusingly titled Lakeview Cabin III) was a Friday the 13th-style romp around a lakeside camp. The second arrived on Friday, a bit Texas Chainsaw Massacre with a girl band trying to escape from a murderous cannibal family.

Sandbox Slasher Movie Sim Lakeview Cabin Released

Should I ever find myself in a horror movie-style scenario, I intend to lie on a bed pressed up close against the wall with my eyes firmly shut. Movie rules mean they can’t kill me if I don’t acknowledge them, so I’ll simply be very stoic. That might not work so well in Lakeview Cabin Collection [official site], a slasher movie game anthology which has released its first episode.

It’s a side-scrolling sandbox survival horror (not in the ‘collect twigs to craft an axe’ sense) where you’ll experience the full range of summer camp fun, from getting drunk and skinny dipping to desperately trying to stop murderous forces with whatever’s at hand. It sounds great.
