Minisode 15 – Horror Games Mark II


I’m not dead, the minisodes are back… back from the dead that is! It’s a spooky Critical Distance Confab.

In the spirit of October, we bring you another minisode installment on horror games. Co-hosting with me this month is my podcast associate from PopMatters, Nick Dinicola.

We’ve been able to bring the minisodes back thanks to our listeners’ support on Patreon. To help us to add more new features to the site, including foreign-language coverage and videos, please consider supporting us.

The purpose here is to highlight some games we feel aren’t getting the critical attention they deserve for whatever reason. Our hope is that one of you intrepid listeners will sort that out by playing and writing about them. The games mentioned will range from art games, to prestige level indie games, right on up through AAA games that have slipped through the cracks.
