Survival horror games tend to instill in the player a feeling of helplessness. You’re often alone and hopelessly outnumbered, and that makes the experience more terrifying. In Dark Antarctic, a recently released indie horror PC game crafted by Rain Pohlak, you’ll be alone and outnumbered, but with your character’s arsenal of brutal executions you’ll rarely feel entirely helpless.
Dark Antarctic’s flavor is decidedly decidedly old school, both visually and in terms of its 2D beat ’em up gameplay. It also brings with it buckets — nay, vats — of gore. Check out its launch trailer after the jump.
