The Dark Pictures Anthology – Little Hope is due on October 30th

Until Dawn developers Supermassive Games today announced that they're delaying the second chapter of The Dark Pictures Anthology, Little Hope. The realities of a 200-person team working from home mean yeah, bit of a hold-up. Previously due this summer, the second of their eight interactive horror stories is now expected in the autumn.

Man Of Medan’s Friend’s Pass is an oddly limited way to share the horror

Like most horror flicks, The Dark Pictures Anthology - Man Of Medan is better with friends. Starting this week, Medan owners are getting a new Friend's Pass, letting you invite one special friend onto the virtual couch to share the scares together over the next two months.

Feature: Fool fathom five

Man Of Medan review

The difference between horror and comedy is largely a matter of timing. For example, when Alex was caught in a storm with his hands tied, trying to dodge sudden flying objects was frightening.

Games Are Cool – Dr Who: The Eternity Clock

"Is there anything you like about Christmas?" wondered my significant other last night, after I'd just expelled another long moan about the hassle of the holiday season. I didn't have to think for long. "Yes!" I exclaimed, confidently. "There's usually an episode of Dr Who on." For, despite the good Doctor's televisual output being what I would generously describe as 'uneven', it pushes most of…
