Here we are, standing on the precipice of what may very well be the most exciting time of the year. Sept-Nov is a great time to be a gamer, but it’s also a terrible time to be broke, as I usually am. Thankfully, not every new release carries that premium, and sometimes intimidating, $60 price tag. If you’re on a budget, there’s a number of new releases that won’t take as big a toll on your wallet.
This month has seen the arrival of a bevy of indie horror games, including Doorways: The Underworld, Slender: The Arrival, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Neverending Nightmares and Kraven Manor. Every one of those games is available now, and none of them will cost you more than $20m but if premium prices don’t scare you, Dead Rising 3 also arrived on Steam.
Now that we’ve established what’s out there, I’d like to know which game(s) you’re playing.
We’re all about horror here on Bloody Disgusting, so the options I have in the below poll are all of the horror persuasion. I’m sure your tastes are more diverse than that, so if you’re playing one or more non-horror games, I’d love to hear what’s keeping you busy in the comments.
