Spooky season is a state of mind
World of Horror and a new cute game with gobs of gore
Spooky season doesn’t simply vanish when October ends. It lingers. Whether you listen to this episode on Halloween or in the early days of November, chances are the air is crisp, the nights are long, and the grocery story has begun selling apple cider and pumpkin pie.
The video game gods agree that we shouldn’t rush to toss our Jack O’Lanterns in the compost. For Resties, we’ve dug into World of Horror, the Japanese horror game inspired by retro text adventures and the artist Junji Ito. And in a few days, you’ll hear us take a trip into the Pacific Northwest mind-boggle of Alan Wake 2.
Plus, we shine the spotlight on Laika: Aged Through Blood, both the cutest and goriest of the bunch.
Don’t hang the Christmas decorations just yet! There’s still plenty time to get scared!
