Asylums haven’t had the greatest representation in video games. With games like Outlast and Asylum, games that take place in or around institutes for the criminally insane are shown in a stereotypical fashion, with crazed, dirty inmates. It’s up to us to break these stereotypes — and Asylum Jam is a fantastic start.
Before we get on that, let’s check out Asylum Awaits, an indie horror game that brings with it another silly and wholly unrealistic portrayal of an asylum, only this time there are aliens.
