Halloween Tips. Sale and more!

Now that northern hemisphere men and women move into darker instances what can be better than to indulge in some horror! Read along to get some ideas on games, books and films to check out this Halloween!

What to Play?
Initial of all we have to recommend our own creations that are now obtainable at a very low rate! Amnesia and Penumbra can both be gotten for as low as 50% the value on several on-line stores. Proper now discounts are accessible at Our Own Store, Steam, GamersGate, ImpulseDriven and the voices tell me Direct2Drive will have discount extremely quickly as well.

I would also like to put particular focus on our newly launched Mobile Shop. It is an ordinary internet store exactly where you can get the game by just sending an SMS. It does not get considerably simpler than that and is specially good for any person missing a credit card! All our games are on sale there as well and if you are lucky they may well expense you less than half the regular price! So do not hesitate and verify it out now:

In case you have currently played both Amnesia and Penumbra, here are some a lot more much more recommendations:

A lovecraftian Interactive Fiction game with story similar to "Shadow of Innsmouth" and "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward". It is really lengthy and very properly written and implemented. If you can manage playing with out graphics this is a great choice.

Get in touch with of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth
One more lovecraft-game, but this time in glorious realtime 3D. Especially the initial third of the game is deliciously creepy with a nice foreboding atmosphere. If you can stand a few bugs and inexpensive deaths, this game is properly worth acquiring.

I have no mouth and I should scream
This is a game that is not that scary, but instead features some extremely disturbing themes. The story requires place in a post apocalyptic future, exactly where the last 5 individuals on earth are getting tortured by a not-so-friendly AI named AM. It plays like a usual point-and-click but with some entertaining twists. Unfortunately the game suffers from some annoying puzzle design, but is nevertheless worth trying out. And oh, the game functions with ScummVM, and need to as a result run on just about any platform.

What to watch?
At Halloween all sorts of crappy horror movies are released, so to save you from that right here are some films that you may possibly have missed:

Fermat's Area
5 folks are called to a puzzle evening which takes on a diabolical twist. If you enjoyed limited location based motion pictures like Cube and (1st) Saw, this is one particular is highly recommended!

Eden Lake
A story about a couple taking a trip to a lake is not all that original, but Eden Lake has a nice twist to it. Beware of some disturbing scenes.

Hard Candy
Cranking up the disturb-o-meter, this film is unsettling to say the least. It starts out with a creepy meeting in between a man and a young girl, and then gets progressively worse.

Day of the Beast
To lighten up right after Hard candy, you should consider this movie. It is about a priest that in order to stop the anti-christ decides to turn out to be evil. He teams up with a mentally unstable death-metal fan to do so. Hilarity ensues.

Lost Highway
This is almost certainly my favorite a Lynch movie, if only for an excellent scene involving a telephone at a party. It is not that scary, but keeps a brooding atmosphere all through. Beware of weird lynchian plot!

Given that we want to go out with a bang I am rounding up the list with this disturbing masterpiece. The movie is really slow, but this only helps developing to moments of correct horror that it has. The end scene is unforgettable.

What to read?
Nothing can tingle the imagination as a very good book. So here are some guidelines on how to invoke these nightmares I bet you extended for.

Something Lovecraft
A novel by the master of horror is a must! For men and women new to the man, I would recommend "The Whisperer in the Darkness", "The Shadow over Innsmouth" or "The Dunwhich horror", all extremely standard lovecraftian tales. All of his works is accessible online, but they are of course very best enjoyed in front of the fireplace.

The Terror
A retelling of the doomed Franklin expedition with the addition of a stalking monster. Most of the book is based on correct events, and the supernatural spice increase scariness in an currently horrific story. This is almost certainly a single of the best horror books I have read. It requires a even though to get into, but when you do the book will not let you go.

Perdido Street Station
I contemplate the books author, China Mieville, but be a kind of modern day Lovecraft. He has the same dense, but yet enthralling, prose and an extraordinary capability of producing monsters. The books takes location in a fantasy world, but even even though it is really weird, it feels in real in a way. Prepare for some actually disturbing imagery.

Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers
Ever wondered what takes place to human bodies soon after they die? This book contains all you want to know and then some. It opens up with describing rows of heads lying in bowls (to be employed in educational objective) and then gets worse. For anyone interested for anyone interested in the macabre this is a should.
