GOG celebrates Halloween with a sale and 5 new releases that offer more than just a few scares this year.
As the Halloween sale only lasts until November 2, 2020, at 2 PM UTC with all sorts of discounts on GOG and I’m also in the middle of Halloween evening decoration and food/drink preparation, let’s keep this as short and possible.
Of course there have already been other scary game releases on GOG lately (some of which I already covered and some I’m going to write about in the next few days), but these 5 new additions might have been missed by some, as GOG didn’t promote them in their individual release articles.
Deqaf Studio‘s puzzle platformer Creepy Tale, originally released in February this year, is about two brothers, one of them looking for the other, who got lost in a creepy wood with all sorts of nightmarish creatures, which means survival horror, platforming and puzzle solving in a 2D platformer disguise.
Caustic Reality‘s first-person psychological horror adventure game Infliction: Extended Cut, the original version of which being released in October 2018 and updated this October, makes other survival horror games look tame in comparison, as one explores a broken home in both senses of the word, which makes for an experience that might not be for the faint-hearted.
Wales Interactive‘s first-person survival horror game Maid of Sker sets itself apart from its competitors by being based on Welsh folklore and doesn’t only rely on running-and-hiding skills, but also defensive sound devices to overcome enemies.
Lightbulb Crew and Focus Home Interactive‘s turn-based strategy game Othercide, originally released in July 2020 and already discussed in the Past gaming events: Gamescom 2018, Day 1 (press appointments) article, mixes otherworldly Lovecraftian horror with combat styles that wouldn’t be out of place in a Devil May Cry game.
Finally there’s Protocol Games and Raiser Games‘ episodic third-person survival horror game Song of Horror, the last episode of which being released in March this year, also presents Lovecraftian horror, this time involving people stalked by a dark presence that is connected to a music box.
So there are certainly enough new creepy games to dig into on GOG, all of them with launch discounts lasting until November 2, 2020, at 2 PM UTC, except for Infliction: Extended Cut‘s discount that expires on November 9, 2020, at 2 PM UTC. Of course there are many other classics or recent releases featured in the Halloween sale that are worth checking out.
