Spooky season is here, and while the actual game is going to miss Halloween by a two and a half weeks, it’s the perfect time to dive into The Devil In Me‘s preview, which spans 90 minutes towards the end of the first act.

HIGH When a last name reveals the villain.
LOW There are some incredibly cheap unexpected deaths.
WTF Is this whole game based on a cryptid meme?
House of Ashes is Supermassive Games’ newest title in the Dark Pictures Anthology, a series of interactive horror movies. Where previous titles featured ghost ships and haunted towns, House of Ashes heads in a more visceral and action-packed direction, with the player taking control of a special forces team at the tail end of the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
House of Ashes, the next game in Supermassive’s Dark Pictures franchise, just hosted a hands-off gameplay reveal and it seems as if the developers are focused as much on making up for missteps in previous entries as they are at telling a compelling story this time around. Given the content of the preview, I’d say they have a pretty good chance of accomplishing everything they’ve set out to do.
Darkest Before The Dawn
