This week on the show, we delve into one of the most successful and popular genres in gaming, horror. When something goes bump in the night, or when a shape moves in the mist we feel one of the most primordial emotions, fear. As a result games have been trying plenty of different ways to spook us, and some certainly left their mark. Join Luke, Elliot and Edie as they are joined by Brian Holland, from Sun’s Shadow Studios creators of text based horror game Beyond the Veil. The team will talk though Brian’s upcoming game and what to expect from it, as well as delving into the ideas of jumps scares and a foreboding atmosphere, does one work better than the other? Can only one exist at a time? We’ll see if we have the answers to this and more. Don’t miss any of the action and don’t forget to check out the first half of this podcast to keep up to date!
