Horror In A World Of Horror

Shortly before the world changed, the
pre-release build of World of Horror by indie developer Panstasz arrived
on X-Box game pass for PC. The 1-bit title screen immediately filled me joy.
Eldritch tentacles, mysterious cults, supernatural architecture, and creepy
lighthouses flashed onto my screen and I knew this game was going to sink its
scaly claws deep into my flesh.
