SOMA’s Grip On BioShock Comparisons, Indie Influences

SOMA didn't scare the scuba suit off me, but I did find a creeping sort of potential in its soaked-to-the-bone corridors. Amnesia: The Dark Descent 2 this ain't. Or at least, it's not aiming to be. Currently, it still feels a lot like a slower-paced, less-monster-packed Amnesia in a different (though still very traditionally survival-horror-y) setting, but Frictional creative director Thomas Grip has big plans.…

Slender Delivers Scares From Internet’s Darkest Depths

When going about my day-to-day business, I like to maintain a healthy¬†level of heart-rate-skyrocketing paranoia. So naturally, I find myself glancing over my shoulder a fair bit when I'm out and about, and it's quiet¬†- too quiet. Slender, I think, is a pretty good validation of all my greatest fears. It's based on Something Awful's Slender Man myth (which I confess to having known nothing…
