Woah. What kinda game is this?

>> No.946190

It's a first-person RPG/graphic adventure/action mash-up game.

You play the nephew of a recently deceased student of the occult (IIRC). Your family has some kind of curse that is connected to a variety of supernatural horrors in the past. Your uncle had a waxworks collection that lets you travel to these events and try to undo the evil. (I admit, the story's a bit hazy to me at this point.) Anyhow, one of the scenarios has you chasing down and fighting Jack the Ripper, another takes place in a mine filled with killer plants, there's a sequence in a graveyard full of undead.

You fight monsters in real time, gain experience by exploring the maps, and collect items and solve puzzles. A strange feature is that your level drops to 1 every time you enter a new scenario, but I think that's mostly to keep the game feeling tense. You can never become too powerful.

Grotesque stuff in games is definitely a retro thing, I wish we had more of it. Do you think it isn't as prevalent today because we don't use pixelart as much, or simply because it's fallen out of fashion?

I think you can do some really disturbing stuff with 3d, but sort of the same reason why horror is consider a niche genre (real horror, not pg-13 teen scare stuff) doesn't reach a large enough audience so publishers are scared that it will flop.

Some of this stuff is rather extreme (and beautifully created), I can already see shitty clickbait sites like Shit-taku trying to spin it around and say that its racist/sexist/torture porn/etc.
