Tonight You Die: An Eerie Free Brutalist Walking Simulator

BOO!

"Tonight You Die" is not an e-mail subject I especially relish finding in my inbox, but I can get used to that brief shock if it brings me more games like Tonight You Die [official site].

It's a spooky walking simulator exploring a deserted brutalist estate at night, all angular concrete and dark shadows. And your footsteps. And some suitably eerie music. After all the E3 bustle, I'm pleased to end the week with something quiet - and playable now. It's pay-what-you-want on Itch.

Calibrate your brightness properly, put your headphones on, turn out the lights, and enjoy what its makers call "a paranoid fantasy existing in the space between a music single and an exploration game". They mean it's quite minimalist and has nice music, and it is and it does. I shan't say much, but I did enjoy my internal process of trying to figure out quite what was going on and how it even worked. I dig those brutalist sculptures.

Also, it has a field of view slider, in case that's a deal-breaker for you. You can turn it all the way up to 100 degrees if you don't want to feel claustrophobic and a bit panicky in this death simulator.
