The room shifts ever so slightly to the right, back to centre, then left and back again. Lightbulbs flicker above, then pop like bubble wrap. A child's xylophone plays a looping, unsettling melody against the omnipresent purr of a ship's engine somewhere in the distance. You ease tentatively down the red carpeted aisle of the lunch hall as its bloated patrons moan through contorted expressions and slump to the floor before you. When the closing 10 minutes of a horror game evokes everything from Greek mythology to the works of Guillermo del Toro, Tim Burton, Hunter S. Thompson, and Roald Dahl in one swoop, it's doing something right. Little Nightmares is bloody terrifying, right to the very end. "Ultimately, you're a small child in a wilderness not meant for children. And with that, everything is planned so meticulously on a design level, from the layout of levels, to movement patterns of enemies, the timing of scares, and audio cues," says Little Nightmares senior producer Lucas … [Read more...] about Creativity and risk are driving modern horror games – but where does the genre go next?

The Uncharted 4 rock cairn locations across Madagascar are more important than they first seem. A rock cairn is a pretty name for what's basically a pile of stones, but by kicking them all over you can get a special trophy called "Not a Cairn in the World". Clever. There's actually 16 rock cairns spread across the Madagascar area, and you can knock them down with either a quick punch or just rolling over them in your jeep (which can't be good for the axles). Now part of the PS Plus Collection Games selection with the PS5 remaster on the way soon, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is worth exploring on its own terms, and kicking down rocks is something that's fun from the moment we're born. A little note of warning though: you’ll hit several points of no return during the chapter, so if you do happen to miss any of the Uncharted 4 rock cairn locations, you’ll have to replay the chapter and knock them all down on your next playthrough.

Those of you who've finished the latest entry to Capcom's abiding survival horror series will know the one. The one found on that workshop bench deep within the game's isolated Eastern European hamlet. The one with that butchered Lycan front and centre, scarred, stapled, with a grotesque power source wedged into a wound on its back. The one that alludes to the terrors that inevitably lie ahead. That's right. That one . Away from Resident Evil Village's headline scares – the swarming, feral natives; the blockbuster showdown with Lady Dimestrescu; the David vs Goliath encounter with Urias inside the Stronghold – the subtlety of this finding is equally terrifying. Solving the clue penned on the back of this battered black and white snapshot lets you obtain a key item, therefore its placement is … [Read more...] about Jump scares, don’t care: why I long for more exploration-based horror in 2022
