We all love to get frightened sometimes, especially on Halloween, and what would be a better way than playing some chilling video games. Here are some quick reminders on what to look out for in the following year(s).

Until Dawn

Ever wondered what it would feel like to be in a slasher horror flick? Until Dawn is a cinematic story-based game, in which every decision counts, and with every move you make, you change the outcome of the game. If you don't mind the heavily scripted gameplay, and happen to own a PS4 (Yep, PS4 exclusive) then you should definitely give it a try.

Check out the demo play-through below to get a glimpse of what the actual game feels like.

Friday the 13th: The game

Friday the 13th: The Game (previously known as Summer Camp) is a work-in-progress title from Gun Media and creator Wes Keltner, with horror icon Tom Savini and legendary composer Harry Manfredini on board. It will be a survival/co-op horror game heavily inspired by the cult classic slasher horror films of the 80s. You can either play as a team of camp counselors trying to survive, or as Jason himself with the sole objective of butchering down everyone. Sounds fun right? While there isn't much info available currently on the project because it is still in pre-alpha, the teaser trailer and concept arts look pretty rad!

The Hum: Abductions

The Hum: Abductions is another indie horror title that was crowd-funded on Kickstarter recently. The premise of the game is simple.You play the unsuspecting victims of alien abductions in an Amnesia style story-based horror FPS. Imagine a video-game version of The Fourth Kind in which you are the abductee. Just watching the demo gives me chills and goosebumps. I'm sleeping with the lights on tonight!

Allison Road

Do you remember the Silent Hills game that had a freakishly scary demo that conquered the internet in a matter of days? You know, the collaboration between Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro, featuring The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus as the protagonist. Do you remember now?

Well, as you might already know, that title was sadly cancelled over some dispute between the studios, but now it seems like we might actually get a chance to play it (or something like it). An indie developer team wants to give the fans what they were so anxiously looking forward to, in the form of a new game, Allison Roads. It will be a kind of spiritual successor of P.T., the playable teaser of Silent Hills (one that will even get released hopefully). It uses similar game mechanics and themes to Silent Hills, but we all know that nothing could have beaten the original game if it wasn't cancelled cancelled. But as they say, appreciate what you have.

Thank you guys for reading. If you have something to say don't forget to leave a comment behind and tune in for more by hitting that follow button. Cheers!
