Casting Some Light On Bulb Boy
You may have heard of Bulb Boy. It’s an off-beat little indie horror game originally released via Steam back in 2015. It was fairly well-received at the time. So why am I talking about a game from two years ago? Because it was recently ported over to the Nintendo... Read more
Vaccine Offers A Survival Horror Fix
Vaccine seems like a game which should be perfectly tailored to me. It’s a throw-back to the first generation of survival horror games but with a modern indie game touch. However, that’s an awfully big check. Can Vaccine cash that check? Let’s find out. Vaccine is obviously an homage... Read more
Momodora Is The Nostalgic Game You’ve Been Wanting
Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight is clerarly influenced by many of the classics of the genres it emulates. It wears its influences like patches on a punk’s jacket: one for Bloodborne, one for Castlevania, one for Demon’s Souls, and… one for Doki Doki Panic. Okay so that last one... Read more
What Are the Scariest Games That You’ve Never Played
We here at HorrorBuzz have something a little different for you today. Instead of picking up something new and praying that it’s good, we’re going to be looking through some older games that didn’t get enough attention when they were first released. However, not just any game will do.... Read more
Cracking The Silver Case and Finding A Killer
This column has discussed Japanese video game developer Suda51 in the past, but let’s start with a quick recap. He is known for creating incredibly strange (or “quirky” if you’re feeling generous) video games that tend to be incredibly divisive. None of his games have been particularly commercially successful... Read more
Avoid The Inevitability At All Costs
I will fully admit that I was lazy in picking The Inevitability to be the subject of this week’s column. I went onto Steam and looked at the most recently released games with the “horror” tag. I saw a game with a plot summary that sounded kind of interesting... Read more
A GIRLS FABRIC FACE Should Have Stayed Covered
A Girls Fabric Face is a game which does not know that it needs an apostrophe in that title. That right there should have been a warning to me. The incredibly generic screen shots on the Steam page should have been my next warning. I got suckered in by... Read more
Camp Sunshine Fumbles In The Dark
As I have discussed before, I am quite fond of RPG Maker horror games. I also love slasher flicks and 16-bit nostalgia. So it seemed like Camp Sunshine was made just for me, a 16-bit RPG Maker horror game paying homage to classic summer camp slasher films. “What’s not... Read more
Spilling The Beans On the Game of Tattletail
You remember the Tattletail, right? It was a toy that was kind of popular in the late 90s that talked and learned things and looked kind of like a furry bird? Oh wait, that’s a Furby. Tattletail is a game that leans hard on 90s nostalgia for toys like... Read more
Steam Greenlight Gets A Red Light
Valve recently announced that they are shutting down their Steam Greenlight service. Through this service, developers had to pay a one-time fee to be allowed to put games up on Steam. The Greenlight games were then voted on by the community and those that passed were put up onto... Read more
