Indie Horror Games?

#1TheFrozenFirePosted 8/9/2012 3:52:14 PM
Any good indie horror games on XBL?

It seems these days, the indie games are way out-doing all the big name games, since all current horror games are wussing out.

Just wondering if anyone's found anything good and scary.

Nobody here on this board gets scared of anything, at any point in time. However, give that game Decay a shot, it was pretty cool.

I'll check it out.

I just can't remember the last time i was actually afraid to turn that next corner, and what have you.

Ah well...

Thanks much.

Yeah.... **** I have a trial of one that looked pretty decent, can't remember the name but I will post it later for you. Our of curiosity, you check out Amnesia on the PC? Picked it up from STEAM for $5 a while back.

I've seen vids, but i've never played it. I'm about to make the switch to PC for stuff like that though, cuz that seems to be the best place to find it.

Also really love the idea of custom story type things that Amnesia has.

Put the scares in the hands of the players and you get a whole new experience.

I'm just chiming in because Amnesia is the scariest game I've ever played.

Nothing close on the 360 though :(

Amnesia: the Dark Decent is one of the best horror games out there...but it is for the PC.

^ Just wanted to confirm that.
Also, there is a sequel in the works for it as well.

Amnesia is great and all, but everyone overlooks its siblings, the Penumbra series :(

Edit to clarify since I was vague: Amnesia is the better game, but you shouldn't skip the Penumbras, either!

I think I'll stay for a while. Lotus leaves, taste so, so sweet.

Guilty. Have them, haven't played them. Are they as good?

Not -as- good, no. They're rougher, but I think they still have more atmosphere than 99% of the games out there. Certainly worth a playthrough.
