Survival horror is a genre that’s been pretty well represented over the last few years. But The Conjuring House looks like it might be the scariest one yet.
Conjuring up some fear
Trapped in The Conjuring House, you race down a dim hallway, weaving around overturned tables and scattered books. It has been almost an hour since you have seen her, the demonic woman who prowls through the house, waiting to kill you at any possible moment, but you know she must be near. The uneasy feeling that has been slowly churning in your stomach continues to grow as you rush toward your destination – a safe room. A room that has been warded against any of the house’s ungodly creatures, a room where you know that she, and the other depraved monsters that roam the house, cannot reach you.
You turn a corner, the doorway of your safe room a shining beacon in all the darkness. Mere steps from entering the room, the door slams shut. You grasp at the doorknob, but it will not budge. A coldness creeps from behind you and you slowly turn around. A dark form hovers a few feet behind you. She is not just coming. She is here.
Creepy! And kind of reminiscent of that ill-fated demo on PS4 from a few years back… you know the one.
As you can tell, The Conjuring House leaves you without any weaponry, again sets you against a host of fearsome nasties. Survival is the name of the game here, as you won’t be able to fight back. So you’ll be running, hiding, and in general, scampering away from spooks as fast as you possibly can.
It’s not a particularly new idea, but it certainly looks as though Rym Games knows what their doing with it. Watch for it on PC some time this month.
