Horror Puzzlers

For whatever reason, I’ve been playing a lot of horror puzzlers lately. Of note have been “Conarium” and “Little Nightmares.”

“Conarium” is a Lovecraftian-inspired follow-up to “At the Mountains of Madness” where you are on the expedition to Antarctica to investigate the findings from the famously doomed first one. They got the tone and setting pitch perfect for “Mountains.” Very spooky cosmic horror.

Little Nightmares” is a horror puzzler much in the same vein as “Limbo” and “Inside,” but the whole game is absolutely lush and gorgeous. Every second of game play looks like it came straight from a claymation movie. It is an especially moody, creepy, and dark.

Both are pretty short games that you can beat in a weekend, but absolutely worth it and I’m glad I played them. I don’t want to say too much more because I don’t want to spoil them, just that they are amazing and moody and immersive and scary 🙂
