| Comments Off on What Remains Of Edith Finch

These survivors need to work together to survive and dispatch the sixth player. This player takes the role of the villain, of which there are three choices so far: the slasher, the giant, and the strangler. Each survivor and villain character have their special characteristics, with an assault, backup, medic, scout, and engineer class, as well as a brute, fast and assault class for the villains. The production team has revealed three maps for the game so far: the high school on prom night, a mall after closing time, and a neighbourhood. Not much has been revealed about the game, including a release date, but it will be available on Steam sometime in 2017. Developers Elastic Games have released a gameplay trailer outlining a brief background and showing of gameplay mechanics. The game will require strategy from both the killer and the survivors, with the latter needing to work together in order to survive, and the former needing to use stealth and traps in order to space out the survivors and not risk running head on into their death.

The game is becoming more anticipated as the year goes, and it will give a person a first-person view of the predator, or the prey. Number 6. What Remains of Edith Finch: A unique entry for the list, What Remains of Edith Finch is a series of short stories about a cursed family from Washington State. Players play as Edith Finch as she travels through her family history, from 1900 to the present day. Each story has a different theme and setting, with Edith experiencing the demise of her family members. The developers have stated it was their goal for players to develop a connection with Edith as she witnesses what led to her ancestors deaths, and what caused her family to be cursed in the first place. Much of the gameplay is puzzle based, and story is the main focus of the game. People have drawn comparisons to games such as Dear Esther, with the dialogue-heavy exploration with suspensful atmosphere.

Unlike many modern horror games, Edith Finch is looking to create a purely psychological horror experience as opposed to jumpscares and heavy combat. With players meant to develop an attachment with Edith throughout the game, it certainly makes for an emotional experience on top of a creepy one. The game is set for release in Spring 2017 on PS4; only then will we learn the truth behind the Finch family and the burden on each family member. Number 5. Visage: PT appears to have made its impact on horror gaming, with many games attempting to capture its play style this year. Visage is one of these games, and it aims to bring players back to the traditional haunted house stories. Players awaken in a house, seemingly all alone; however, something sinister is wandering alongside them, though not always visable. Players must explore the many halls and rooms of the house and collect artifacts in order to escape.

The story is set four years following the events of Resident Evil 6 and introduces a brand new character to the games, Ethan Winters. Unlike the previous playable characters, Winters is a civilian with no combat training.

Winters is searching for his missing wife, and his investigation leads him to a deralict plantation in Louisiana.

It also brings together the English and Japanese titles of the games, since the franchise is known as Biohazard in Japan. So far, the game has gained much hype and fans of the series are welcoming the new look and gameplay mechanics the game has to offer. Gamers can expect the game to be released in early 2017.

Hill is attempting to put the pieces together and determine why the man committed the murders.

Dreadful will rely heavily on suspence, with long periods of silence and wandering in the dark to create tension within the player. Alpha footage has shown mechanics, such as puzzle sovling, stealth movement and some action elements available to the player for survival. The game was recently greenlit by steam, and the developer has stated the game will be released sometime between mid and late 2017. Number 7. Last Year: While initially off the radar for many gamers, Last Year is beginning to pick up interest. The game is set during the 1990s, and is a multiplayer horror game with up to six players. The survivors are made up of stereotypical characters you would find in a 90s slasher film: the jock, the best friend, the popular girl, the nerd and the unpopular girl.
