[Games Around the Corner] Week 43, 2021 - Horror for Halloween
Halloween is just around the corner so we're recommending a few horror titles to spook up the vibe. Of course, the festival is all about ghosts, monsters, and Jack-o'-lanterns. This week, we'll need to survive the spirits of the evil cursed Noh mask and nightmarish creatures that look like they come out from a comic book. Also, Jack, the pumpkin is waiting for players to destroy the good in the Arc-En-Ciel Kingdom.
Inspired by its Japanese roots, Shadow Corridor is set in a world based on traditional locales with items spread across a variety of maps for players to explore. Players will come across different ghosts, each with its own unique appearance and abilities. To survive longer, players must search for items that can help them such as a light source to light up their path or they won't be able to see "more than a few feet in front of them".
Shadow Corridor will make its Switch debut on 26 October.
It's Halloween. That means no good and only evil. Playing as Jack, the mythical Pumpkin Lord, players will travel through otherworldly landscapes to wipe out the good. "It's the perfect mix of old and new, melding a retro-inspired title that builds on the legacy of the likes of MediEvil and Jak & Daxter with the technological power of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S."
Pumpkin Jack New-Gen Edition will be released on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S on 27 October. Players who have owned the PS4 or Xbox One version will receive a free upgrade instead. The New-Gen Edition will see a Performance Mode that offers up to 4K resolution at 60 frames per second and a Quality Mode that offers up to 4K resolution at 30 frames per second.
Forgive Me Father
Forgive Me Father is a dark retro horror FPS set in a comic book style world, inspired by the novels of H.P. Lovecraft. The game will feature 2D timelapse animations, opponents, and elements in a 3D environment. Players will fight against enemies with scripture in one hand and weapons powered by an unknown substance in the other. Choosing to play from the perspective between a priest or a journalist, who's the only one left with full senses, players must be aware of their madness level, which will dynamically change during the game.
Forgive Me Father will be available for early access on Steam on 26 October.
