Inspired by the works of H. R. Giger, Scorn seeps with the disturbing originality of a nightmarish universe which intends to leave players feeling uncomfortable at all times. The narrative centres on a character “being thrown into the world” with an unsettling environment, odd forms and grim tapestry. Isolated and lost inside looking for a way out and trying to find answers to the puzzles through Scorn’s environmental storytelling. This game will be a fascinating addition for anyone looking for a horrific adventure with a unique grotesque visual style.
It was our pleasure to work on this game together with skilled developers from Ebb Software. Give it a try and let us know your opinion.

Our next recommendation for this Halloween is The Quarry. Players assume control of nine teenage counsellors who must survive their last unpredictable night of horror at Hackett’s Quarry summer camp amongst evil supernatural creatures and violent locals. Be careful about your choices, because with life-or-death decisions around every turn, the choices you make can lead to catastrophic consequences and will determine how the story unfolds.

Our last but not least game to play through this October is GhostWire: Tokyo. Set in Tokyo as the game’s title suggests, players explore a unique vision of Tokyo twisted by a supernatural presence. From its ultra-modern cityscape to its traditional temples and narrow alleyways, discover a hauntingly beautiful city swarming with Yokai – vengeful spirits. The city where the population seems to be vanishing and dwindling. Interact with supernatural entities in this open-world action experience as you find the truth of the city’s demise and try to save Tokyo.
