Half-Glass Gaming: "With Killer Klowns from Outer Space, Evil Dead, and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, it looks like licensed horror games are having a moment, so let's enjoy the ride!"
Shoot whats next Child's play?Actually that sounds badass
I mean, I would play that!
Evil Dead is great. I'd love a Halloween game done this way. Maybe it's a 3 way fight. One player is Michael Myers. 5 players are helpless victims trying to survive, 3 players are hunters trying to stop Michael Myers. Hunters could be Laurie Strode, Dr. Loomis and Sheriff Brackett. Boom, I just laid out the game for you, Gun Media. Lets go.
Alright, this game needs to happen!
All thise games would serve better being single player. I see multiplayer attached and i stopped even watching. Shame
It would. I bought evil dead and played it once lol. If there is any franchise that would get me to play this style of game it’s killer klowns.
That’s my thing. I’m not into these asymmetrical MP games. Sure, they’re fun the first few days, but after that I’m over them. I’d rather a single player narrative driven experience that really pays homage to the source material like Ghostbusters The Video Game. That thing was essentially Ghostbusters 3 in my eyes and was such a love letter to the fans with Easter eggs and explored lore.
While I would love a solid, competent single player component, the fan in me is stroked to play these games, period. Plus, I do generally enjoy multiplayer horror titles like Dead by Daylight and Evil Dead, so I'm waiting on this with eager anticipation!
A mainstream moment full of mediocre cash-grabs is nothing to celebrate.
Evil Dead: The Game was good. And Texas Chain Saw Massacre and Killer Klowns still aren't out yet, sooooo can't really say they're mediocre with any validity quite yet.
Gremlins vs Critters, when?
Haha I can't believe all this Killer Klown stuff.. one of my favourite horror movies, to think it's getting a game. Personally though, I don't see the point of going the multiplayer route.. look at what they showcased of the TCM game, that game was crying out to be a first person story game with those environments.
I agree that a single play thing set in these worlds would be awesome. I do wish we'd get good single player and multiplayer modes on the same game, but I'm still really excited for these upcoming titles as they are.
All of which are being turned into Dead By Daylight like games, wholy unoriginal and a boring use of old horror movies properties. Gimme something like the old Ghostbusters game from years ago, spiritual sequels, SP games. We're talking about cult classics, genre defining movies, and the best that can be done is a multiplayer game?
I def get the appeal of a solid single player campaign set in the worlds of these horror franchises. That said, I'm still pretty stoked about these upcoming multiplayer horror titles.
I would pay real money for a proper survival horror Evil Dead game. I dont think that would work so much for KK cause that movie is pure 80s comedy but they could still do a proper single player game for the fanchise.
