Minisode 07 – Horror Games

Welcome to a new minisode on the Critical Distance Confab.

This month we have a special Halloween edition where we will be focusing on quote/unquote horror games to highlight. As usual these are games that haven’t gotten what myself and a co-host feel is a fair shake in criticism and attention. We each will bring three such games to the table. They can be anything, games, indie games or even AAA games you might not have tried.

With me for this theme month is fellow cohort of PopMatters Games’ section and indie horror aficionado, Nick Dinicola.
