Set in a sinister amusement park hiding a dark and creepy secret, The Park is a two-hour long psychological horror experience focusing on intense storytelling and exploration instead of combat and action. It is a psychological horror game from Funcom that came out in 2015.
In this game, you can play as Lorraine, a single mother who searches for her son, Callum, in an abandoned creepy theme park. This horror game explains Lorraine’s story and sentiments in soliloquies as the player passes through the amusement park. It’s very much clear that Lorraine suffers from depression and anxiety.
The Uncle Who Works For Nintendo
In this game, you’re a child at a sleepover and your buddy keeps talking about their uncle who works at Nintendo, getting them access to all the best games. It is usually a mythical figure, but in The Uncle Who Works For Nintendo, he’s real (just not quite human). He’s also visiting at midnight and he’s very hungry. This spooky game draws real dread from the weird mystique around the development of the game, the subtle childhood friendships and the simple horror of waiting for a late-night knock on the door.
Fear is a feature of the architecture in Anatomy, a body horror tale about a ghostly house where the body is the house. The game shudders awake with a screen that looks very much like a VHS tape, then drops you in a shadowy room where lines of static occasionally drift across your vision.
There are no jump scares while you explore the house, only a sense of dread growing as you inch your way through corridors cloaked in a darkness that dares you to step forward. A cassette player in the kitchen crackles with a message: “There is a tape in the basement.” Will you go?
