Slay the Princess
Imagine this: You’re in a forest, and a cabin stands at the end of a path. Inside, a Princess resides in the basement, and your mission is to slay her, for the world’s fate hangs in the balance.
But hold on! The Princess won’t surrender without a fight. She’ll try every trick in the book—charming, deceiving, and making grand promises—to divert you, even making multiple attempts on your life. The world’s destiny is your responsibility, and that’s not something to forget.
Now, here’s where it gets interesting. A narrator tags along on your journey, and you can engage in playful banter with him if you keep asking questions before confronting the Princess. This intriguing dynamic emerged as I played the demo on Steam. It’s an enticing story with an uncertain trust factor that had me eagerly anticipating the entire game.
Black Tabby Games has just launched the game, and is now available on Steam.
Alan Wake 2
We’re diving back into the eerie world of ‘Alan Wake’ with the much-anticipated sequel, a survival horror game by Remedy Entertainment and Epic Games Publishing. In Alan Wake 2, best-selling novelist Alan Wake struggles to escape an alternate dimension by crafting a horror story involving FBI agent Saga Anderson. It’s set to release on PlayStation 5, Windows, and Xbox Series X/S on October 27, 2023. Unlike the original, this game is pure survival horror, played from a third-person perspective. You can play as Alan or Saga in two separate stories, though the opening and ending sequences are character-specific. For fans like me, it’s an exciting continuation of a story that gave me more than a few nightmares!

Hold onto your hats because this one’s a rollercoaster! Play as Grace, tasked with a seemingly simple mission: delivering a letter to his niece, Emily Hartwood. It’s an intense journey filled with jump scares that had me screaming in fear!
