There’s a list of questions I ask myself every day, questions of singular import to the horror gaming world. Questions I never expected to be answered (unless I fulfilled the ambition of a lifetime and answered them myself). Imagine my surprise, therefore, to find that three vital examples had been wiped off my list. Answered. Who’d have thought?
Q: Will there ever be an Alien game that does justice to the IP?
A: Yup. Alien: Isolation.
Q: Can the survival horror genre come back from the dead?
A: Yup. The Evil Within.
Q: Will anyone EVER develop (and release) a game that’s heavily influenced by ‘80s horror movies, specifically Friday The 13th, and is produced by the legend that is Tom Savini?
A: Yup. Summer Camp.
Well shit me.
