5 Scary Horror Games Coming in 2019
The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan
Supermassive Games have begun an anthology of horror. The first in the, hopefully, terrifying series is Man of Medan. The game takes place in the South Pacific ocean onboard a ghost ship. The characters came across it while boating themselves. They choose to explore the ship rather than leave it be and discover it is an old World War II vessel with some dark secrets of its own.
It comes from the same people who brought us Until Dawn and will be story-driven as well. The decisions made by the player will reverberate throughout the game; with some consequences not making themselves known until much later.
Will you be able to save all your friends and make it off the ship alive; or will you falter and suffer for your misjudgments? Can you solve the mystery of the ghost ship as the storm rages outside; threatening to make certain you never make it back to your own boat? What happens when you find out you aren’t exactly alone on board?
Layers of Fear 2
Layers of Fear 2 is a story-driven, psychological horror game that leans heavily on exploration. Players take on the role of an actor trying to escape their past.
It looks like the game will take place on a ship, much like The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan. However, unlike the title above, Layers of Fear 2 will take place in a classical setting. Candyman himself: Tony Todd will narrate. That shouldn’t make it even creepier at all!
Not a lot is known about this title yet, but the first game in the series was a wild ride of horror and psychological trauma. Taking place in an old Victorian mansion, you take control of a painter who just may be losing his mind; either that or something horrible is happening to him.
If it is to be anything like the first game, players had better strap in and get ready for action and terror.
I've previously written about this title, you can find the article here. It was originally set for an earlier release date but has seen a lag in production time. Right now the game is on early access on Steam if you wish to check it out.
This game transports the player back to the 1980s to a huge mansion full of dark history and lingering spirits. Another psychological horror, Visage is first-person. You will be exploring your home, where countless lives have been lost and no one is sure why.
You will try to solve the mystery of the murderous home all while fighting to maintain your life and sanity. The graphics and setting are stunning. If it weren't for the horror going on around you exploring the house would likely be a delight.
It is being made by a relatively new gaming company, SadSquare Studio, which could explain the long wait. As for the early access, most of the reviews so far have been positive, so here's to hoping this one will give us a good fright.
The Peterson Case
This game has one of my favorite tags and that is survival-horror! When it says that I pretty much know I'm going to have to play it at some point.
The Peterson Case follows detective Franklin Reinhardt who has been asked to investigate what exactly happened to the Peterson family. You will look through their home, near the crash site in Roswell New Mexico, and their lives for clues. The only problem? The house is infested with supernatural activity.
As you slowly begin to put together the events that led to the incident, you discover that your own fate may have already been sealed as well. Are we alone on this planet and out in the universe, or is there more to life than what meets the eye?
This game does not yet have a website to visit so only a little is known about it.
Someday You'll Return
Someday You'll return is another story-driven, psychological horror title in which you will take control of a man desperately searching for his daughter, Stela.
This isn't the first time she has gone missing; she has run away in the past, but this time is different. Call it a parent's intuition, but you know something is wrong.
The game takes place in the Moravian forest where dead and dying secrets will be unearthed. It is a place you have been to been to before and a place you swore you would never return. However, to find and bring Stela home safely, you would travel through hell itself; which might be exactly what you're doing.
