The greatest and most effective aspect of horror is the tension and the atmosphere, the feeling of creeping unknown terror that lurks around each corner ahead, the mysterious buzzing sounds of some vile machine sprinkled with the curious moanings of what one could only guess are tortured souls.
When it comes to horror, it’s hardly ever the execution of cheap scares or the appearance of the actual monster that are scary or make the experience, but the thick and heavy atmosphere and the suspense that it builds in you throughout the journey and this is exactly where Neverending Nightmares excels above and beyond everything I have come to expect from the horror genre.

Disclaimer: I took part in the Kickstarter campaign in order to get this game funded. As a result I’ve been playing the game for a good number of months in its Alpha/Beta stages, giving feedback and talking with the developers about the game.
The game is a wonderfully crafted psychological horror game that builds its horror around crafting a dark and foreboding atmosphere. It also does a great job at emphasising a slower, more disturbing tone than a traditional startling tone. The game being inspired by the visions and thoughts of someone with mental illness give a very genuine and unnerving feel to everything, which as a result makes for one of the best horror games that I’ve played in recent times. Definitely worth your time if you’re a horror fan and want something that’ll truly get under your skin.
meme memory game with a decent level progression, cute animal pictures and a peaceful soundtrack. Resolution and window mode can be set via the typical Unity launcher.
Quick developer response and fix about a broken achievement, now they can be done in minutes.
The content is okay for the price.

AT A GLANCE:
3/5 Stars - Classic memory game, and easy achievements. Does get difficult trying to remember where every match is. I only recommend this game for those who like memory games, or looking for easy achievements.
Single Player, Casual, Puzzle, Memory, Family Friendly
Release Date: Dec. 2017 - Over look the animal tiles for a few seconds, then the tiles turn over and the matching begins. Find a match of two like animals and turn over the remaining tiles to progress to the next stage.
An unusual idea, but at the same time very exciting. That’s what make this game unique.
I mean content-plot, it is not just a short story. MOREOVER, while playing you are getting more and more new adventures. Our task is to collect some fragments of the story and finally investigate murder.
Pros: interesting plot, good graphic, well-chosen soundtrack
Cons right now can’t be noticed by me, i might played too little time to notice them.
And to conclude, this game is something unusual, not like others one. Really good one to spend free time

there is a sense of horror in the process of playing
Mists of Aiden
A small horror gem
Mists of Aiden (formerly House On The Hill) is a true indie gem with a handful of good scares. I’m not fond of long-enough-for-a-cup-of-coffee-type of horror games because their fear factor is often reliant on cheap boogeyman tactics. I bought this one on Halloween sale since I wanted to have a snack before moving onto bigger meals that are more to my taste. I didn’t expect much from Mists of Aiden but I was positively surprised.
It manages to tap into every aspect needed to make a decent horror title from its great monster and level design to the impeccable execution. However, the description of the game is misleading as it’s quite linear and has little to no room for free exploration. With a rather weak ending, I’d say the story isn’t the forte here but the game is otherwise very enjoyable. More often than not, I felt anxious about the unnerving atmosphere and the monsters.

“…written. All. Over!”
Here’s The Thing:
You portray “The Thief” in cahoots with an over-the-earpiece accomplice, Franklin, in what seems to be your last of many robberies all for keeping your household afloat! The mark this time is a house whose owner has gone away and so is totally fair game. That is, it would have been had your partner scouted the place properly… Twists and turns are in store for you; guaranteeing that whatever trinket you do leave with will haunt you and that maybe life is the most priceless~
A Wolf in Autumn
(versión en español a continuación)
Is this… a proper menu? In David’s games?
This is it. I’m done. Whatever I could say afterwards would be pointless.
A Wolf in Autumn is about a girl locked down in a shed. The first puzzle is quite simple, but what I liked the most was the fact that there’s not just one way to solve it. And the ones who follow may have another solution as well…
While other David’s games puzzles are easy to solve (or almost nonexistent) this change is, I can tell, for the best (even I got stuck once).
David Szymanski is renowned for using sublime visuals alongside thought provoking gameplay and A Wolf in Autumn is another incredible journey I’d strongly recommend to fans of Szymanski’s work & if you’ve never experienced his work you seriously need to because he is an exceptional Indie game developer
Before I get into the review for A Wolf in Autumn be aware it does contain Adult themes and the voice acting by Julie Hoverson is incredibly effective so be prepared for that!! There is no save feature as advised at the introduction since it is a short 1 hour puzzle experience
Murder Diaries 2
Murder Diaries 2 - with a good plot. Nice graphics and pretty good music. The gameplay is pretty simple, you fly around the white circle and piece together the whole story. The game is addictive. Recommend!
A very good and beautiful game with its own riddles and mysticism, it makes you think about the plot, it is pleasing to the eyes. It is somewhat reminiscent of an old game from my childhood, which was also about investigations.
Shining Hotel: Lost in Nowhere
Since I’ve opted to thumb this game up, I should start this review with a highly emphatic disclaimer, namely:
DO NOT BUY THIS GAME AT FULL PRICE, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. I bought it in a pack with another game for a smidgen under ten dollars, and it was still FAR TOO MUCH. This game is very, VERY short (twenty minutes, tops), and worth maybe two bucks at best. That said: I’ve never thumbed a game down purely on the basis of its price, and I’m not about to start here. You have, however, been warned. On with the review, then…
nice experience, good story.. but very bad gameplay!
what is horror to these developers? seriously, is this even scary?
it’s more than a walking simulator!
I’m ok with the game length that everybody’s complaining about, but it’s not horror at all
it doesn’t worth this amount of money..
I’m sorry, but this is the truth
Viscera Cleanup Detail
Good time waster, has source engine level of bad physics. Good to play while watching a movie or eating.
I like the boombox, turn it up full volume then chase it as it dances away from you from the bass.
Cleaning is aight, intestines are shite.
The 111th Soul
The 111th Soul is a very, very short first-person adventure game. You play as Richard, who arrives at his deceased grandparents' house to help his brother David fix up the place in order to sell it. But David is nowhere to be seen, even though his car is parked outside. The only place you can’t go and look for him is the basement, because the door is locked. And the key should be… - wait! Did you hear that? There! I think I saw something moving in the shadows!
The creepy atmosphere of The 111th Soul is very enjoyable. At one point in the game, I genuinely felt my blood run cold for a second. To be clear: the ‘horror’ is limited to spooky sounds and scary manifestations, even a jumpscare or two, but there is no gore involved.
The 111th Soul had a graphics option called Optimized which I chose to play with. The graphics were nothing special, but that usually means little to me. When I see a game with basic graphics, I just assume there’s a lot in the gameplay, and in this case, there is. You enter a home where you’re to help your brother clean up to get it ready for sale. It’s your grandparents house who have passed away and it’s you and your brothers duty to get it ready for the realtor. But all is not as it seems.
