Darkwood

Whereas every game on this list is played from the first person perspective, Darkwood is played from the top-down perspective. Similar to Paranormal, Darkwood uses procedural generation, only in this game, the entire world is randomized every time you play.

It’s a rogue-like — games in this subgenre are usually difficult, have perma-death, and randomized worlds — with strong survival horror elements. You’ll explore, craft items and traps, level up to unlock new perks, and use these new-found skills to defend against eerie creatures that would very much like to tear you apart.

It also looks delightfully old school.

Pulse

I only recently played Pulse, a horror-ish indie game where you’re completely blind. You “see” and explore and solve puzzles using a form of echolocation, which, through sound, reveals the world. It’s gorgeous, original, and at times, extremely terrifying. Sometimes, the scariest things are what you can’t see, so if the unknown terrifies you even a little, you’re going to love Pulse.

You can watch me play it below, or you can download the demo and play it yourself (the link is in the video’s description).

Have a question? Feel free to ever-so-gently toss Adam an email, or follow him on Twitter and Bloody Disgusting.

    Adam genuinely has the cutest voice. Now that that’s out of the way, i’m so excited for all the new horror games coming out, I haven’t played a super-impressive one in a while, but some of these look amazing.

    with Dying Light, you had me with the comparison to Mirrors Edge, and Pulse looks awesome

    Adam you’re adorable, it kills me. I think I am most excited for Among the Sleep… babies by themselves scare the crap out of me.

    • Adam Dodd

      Aww, shux. Would it be possible for all comments on this article to revolve around my cuteness?

      Also, yes, babies are terrifying. I think it’s their tiny, soulless eyes…

  • ThunderDragoon

    I’ll continue with the cute comments by saying your voice is the cutest voice I’ve ever heard. EVER. Well, these are some good looking games and I can’t wait to play them all. Oh, a suggestion if a may, Adam? I’d love to see you play a game called Insanity aka Insanidade. Pewdiepie played it recently and I’d love to see what your reaction is to it.
