An indie horror game, Eriehas released on Desura and is absolutely free and definitely won’t be played by me due to it being way too scary and I’m a complete baby when it comes to horror games. BUT I suspect that it will be enjoyed by horror game fans across the globe.
The game drops players into terrifying scenarios where they are to investigate, survive and escape. This first-person horror game has hidden rotting cats in it, I’m not really sure how awesome that is on the horror scale but I can already smell rotting cats and it aint pretty. The story begins in October 1966, when the Fermi 1 Nuclear Power Generator suffers a partial meltdown and locals begin disappearing from a sleepy Michigan town (The Hills Have Eyes any one?). Oliver Victor is a Red Cross Investigator sent to find missing locals, but quickly finds himself trapped underground and being hunted by a product of forced-mutation experiments. Oliver’s rescue mission quickly turns into a struggle to survive, escape and uncover what’s been happening under the nuclear plant on the shores of Lake Erie.
Eriegame has received an average score of 9.3 on Desura and built using Unreal Engine 3. You can download it for free here. For those of you who haven’t used the Desura client before, it is safe (have it on my PC) so don’t worry.
