Video Games

Video Games serve as the ultimate in immersive entertainment. What better way to scare yourself than playing in the most immersive and interactive medium that we have? This collection of frightening games is not for the faint of heart. Play them if you dare.

Until Dawn









Until Dawn is a narrative-driven game exclusive to the PS4. It follows eight young adults as they fight to survive on Blackwood Mountain as they are systematically hunted. The player makes decisions that impact the narrative of the story using a "butterfly effect" system where decisions that the player makes early in the game impact the narrative as the game progresses.

Resident Evil

Resident Evil is one of the longest running Survival Horror video game franchises dating back to the original Resident Evil in 1996. Resident Evil 2 is a remake to the 1998 release of the same name. Scavenge and conserve your supplies in this zombie survival game in the fictional Raccoon City that has been overrun by hordes of the undead. This classic was given a fresh coat of paint and a lot of replayablility with the ability to play through the campaign as different characters and see the story and maps from different perspectives


Resident Evil VII is a much more intimate experience. Taking place in the bayou of Louisiana, you discover a seemingly abandoned mansion where people seem to go missing with some regularity. The more that you search through this mansion the more you realize how much danger you are in. Fight off an entire family of undead lunatics and find out what is really going on in this instant classic.

State of Decay 2

State of Decay 2 is an Xbox exclusive sequel to the critically acclaimed zombie survival RPG State of Decay. The game features you building up a group of survivors at a base of your choosing. You scavenge for supplies, forge alliances with other groups in the area, and build outposts as your group's influence grows.


Outlast Trinity holds 3 standalone horror experiences containing the original game, Outlast, its expansion, and Outlast II.

Outlast is a survival horror game focussed on immersing the player into the experience. The first game takes place in an insane asylum in the mountains where the player has to effectively navigate and avoid a number of terrifying figures with only one objective. Survive. The second game in the series

Outlast II is just as terrifying, as the player is tasked with avoiding a cult in the wilderness of Northern Arizone with little chance of survival. Armed only with a camera, the Outlast games evoke the true meaning of horror. No weapons, no fighting back, just run, hide and survive.
