Agony gets two new trailers

The first-person survival horror title, Agony, set in Hell and due out later this year, has received a new trailer and a gameplay video to whet your apetite. Check them out below:

Uncanny Valley review

In the interest of being transparent and honest I want to start this review by saying it is possibly going to be the shortest one I’ve ever done and also possibly the shortest on TiX. The reasons for this aren’t because I’m lazy or just rushing, it’s for the fact that Uncanny Valley is best played when you know as little as possible about the game. That comes direct from th...

Resident Evil 7 biohazard review

It was with some trepidation that I took on this review. I’m happy with a bit of horror action, but the thought of haplessly waltzing into the dilapidated Baker residence and exploring each dank corner all in first-person filled me with dread. I’ve played the teaser and had a taste of what to expect, and regardless of how damn great Resident Evil 7 biohazard looks, I really didn’t want to go back ...

New story trailer for 2Dark

The creator of Alone in the Dark has been busy with another horror title, 2Dark, an unforgiving stealth-horror game in which even the save mechanic can apparently kill you. Plagued by a string of child abductions, darkness hangs over the once-picturesque city of Gloomywood like a curse. Having seen his own wife slain and children taken, former detective Mr. Smith vows to find justice and bring an ...

Nevermind review

Nevermind provides an interesting and eerie opportunity to see into the minds of four very different individuals, and help them overcome trauma. It’s part walking simulator, part puzzler and part horror, although the latter largely puts you in a position of unease rather than fright. And the three gameplay elements meld together splendidly to create a unique and fascinating, albeit short, experien...

Sylvio Review

Sylvio is a first person psychological horror game made by Indie developers Stroboskop. When it comes to horror games more often than not games promise lots and deliver next to nothing, with all the same jump scares and unconvincing voice acting they all seem to follow the same theme. Sylvio however offered something different from your usual atmospheric horror games, something I don’t think...

Slain: Back from Hell review

Slain: Back from Hell is essentially a modern take on Ghosts ‘n Goblins. You wander from left to right, platforming and killing spooky enemies, and dying a copious amount of times. Enemies will often follow you, encouraging you to thoroughly kill everything before attempting to move on, and there are cheap deaths aplenty. But with some excellent heavy metal tunes and highly intricate pixel a...

Claire: Extended Cut review

The horror genre. It’s not really my bag, films or games. I have a tendency to switch my emotions off or second-guess the scares. It was with some trepidation that Claire: Extended Cut from Hailstorm Games landed in my inbox. Would this be another in a long line of titles that didn’t quite make the scare-grade, or would this be a definite case of trouser Code Brown? Claire is a small child, lost a...

The Final Station review

An intriguing beginning, superb ending, but highly repetitive and simplistic middle makes The Final Station a swing and a near miss as a survival horror gem. There’s some great ideas here, with its pixel art and colour palette proving some wonderful atmosphere, but its flaws outweigh a lot of the good in end. You are a lone train conductor transporting equipment for the military, as well as surviv...

New trailer for Resident Evil 7

Capcom have released a new trailer and set of screenshots at Gamescom for Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. The trailer takes us a little deeper into the horror we’ll all be immersed in when it releases early next year. We’re are introduced to Marguerite Baker alongside another mysterious female character. Set within a sinister plantation house in Dulvey, Louisiana, former residents, the Bak...

Resident Evil Zero HD Remaster review

The Resident Evil series’ evolution towards action hasn’t gone down well with long-time fans who enjoyed the much slower pace and scarier atmosphere of the original titles. Fortunately, however, the Nintendo Gamecube gave rise to the reincarnation of that original design philosophy, as well as the re-emergence of the original Resident Evil, complete with fancy new visuals. Further still, the succe...

New trailer for indie game Caffeine

You awaken aboard a caffeine mining space station to find yourself, a young boy seemingly all alone. The only thing you know for sure? Something bad has transpired here… Confused and alone, you start to explore this seemingly derelict space station finding cryptic notes and messages everywhere you look, could these be clues to what has happened?” Caffeine, the sci-fi horror from Incand...
