Pixel-Fright-Us: Demons and abominations from the beyond

(Editor’s note: In celebration of Halloween, the Pixelitis staff is outlining 31 of their favorite horror games in Pixel-Fright-Us. The following games are not listed in any specific order.)

"Nothing is quite like the fear of the unknown. Killers, ghosts and zombies all stem from the idea that our reality has gone awry and is unleashing upon us forces outside of our control.

The works of writers such as H.P. Lovecraft take this idea one step further and propose to us the frightening concept of forces outside of our reality, often with agendas beyond our perception that have the capacity to interfere with our daily lives. Even real world mythologies have spun narratives concerning demons who have broken free of their domain to terrorize human victims.

And gaming is no exception. From the abstract to the truly WTF, we’ve picked games that truly give new significance to the word abomination." - Pixelitis Staff (Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem, GameCube, Hellnight, PC, PS2, Retro, Slender: The 8 Pages, Song Of Saya, The Suffering, Xbox)
