A publisher of all things terrifying and gory, DreadXP is holding its Indie Horror Game Showcase later this month.
What goes better with October than horror movies? Well… how about horror games? After all, it can be infinitely more scary to actually be playing out a horror adventure, than just watching one. And if you’re amenable to that way of thinking, then you’re going to want to tune in to DreadXP’s upcoming showcase.
That’d be The Indie Horror Game Showcase, for the uninitiated, and it’s happening via a livestream later this month. The stream will give genre fans a ton to check out, including games from developers like Nightdive, Neon Doctrine, Ziggurat Interactive and lots more.
The “partial list” of attendees includes:
Raw Fury (Post Trauma), Nightdive Studios (System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition), Ysbryd Games (World of Horror), Akupara Games (Sorry We’re Closed), Torture Star Video (Sniper Killer), Wired Productions (Gori: Cuddly Carnage), Vincent Adinolfi (Heartworm), Atari, Beautiful Glitch, Black Tabby Games, Disordered Media, Misfit Village, Modus Games, Neon Doctrine, Ziggurat Interactive, and others.DreadXP press release
If the above’s not enough to get your interest piqued, then you might want to also know that the event will debut none other than Creepshow. Yep, Shudder & Cartel’s iconic horror property will be coming back around, and this time in playable form thanks to DreadXP and The Mortuary Assistant’s Brian Clarke of DarkStone Digital.
Additionally, you can expect to see updates on titles like the Lovecraft/Dating sim mashup Sucker for Love: Date to Die For, and the cosmic horror of role-playing adventure Dread Delusion. Even that’s not it though, as DreadXP says to expect now less than four brand new games to debut at the show.
So if you love horror, or your just in the Halloween mood and want to check out a little digital-terror, make sure to mark those calendars. DreadXP’s Indie Horror Game Showcase hits the web on October 19th, 2023, starting at 10am pacific/1pm eastern time. Multiple online venues will be hosting the stream, including DreadXP’s own YouTube channel and Steam publisher page.
