“The object we are doing with The Darkish Footage is exploring other sub genres of horror,” explains recreation director Tom Heaton. The Darkish Footage Anthology is, smartly, a horror anthology, every a compact standalone frightening recreation the place you discover and handle QTEs and unsafe alternatives, within the vein of Supermassive’s break hit Until Dawn. The speculation, says Heaton, is that all takes one or two horror sub-genres and mines them, perhaps subverting the tropes right here and there. Up subsequent is The Devil In Me, impressed via the notorious Chicago serial killer H. H. Holmes.
“What I believe we made up our minds with The Darkish Footage video games early on was once that the following recreation within the sequence can be very other from the ultimate recreation, as a result of we wish to stay it recent, we wish to give the target audience new,” Heaton explains. So, after a zombie ghost send in Guy Of Medan, the mental witch hauntings in Little Hope, and armed forces squad vs. vampire extraterrestrial beings in Area Of Ashes, Heaton pitches The Satan In Me as roughly Noticed meets The Shining. It is a serial killer slasher in a weirdo lodge, and it has a real crime component. And I’ve to mention, it is one of the most excited I have been for a Darkish Footage access.
