Geek Heart Games

A History of Horror | Geek Heart Games Podcast #34

Episode Summary

Extra Life is coming Nov 2 & 3. You can donate at geekheartgames.com/ExtraLife As our month of horror is drawing to a close, we look back at horror games through the ages. Starting with games like Killer Shark and Haunted House, progressing through the 80's crash gabs with Halloween, Friday the 13th (for commodore 64) and Ghostbusters, to the dawning of our more well known franchises like Silent Hill and Resident Evil, then to the 2000's with Dead Rising and Dead Space, and finally into our modern era with Until Dawn, Outlast, the Evil Within & Doom. We also take a look at different genres like Asymmetrical (Friday the 13th; Dead by Daylight), Survival (everything tends to get lumped into survival), Horror Adventure (Until Dawn), Horror Shooters (Dead Space & Doom), and Horror Puzzles (Friday the 13th Killer Puzzles; Limbo; Inside). We also have our regular Horror Check in where Cody's been listening to the 80's Slasher Librarian on YouTube, reading the classic Friday the 13th: Church of the Divine Psychopath and Sam read The Fireman by Joe Hill. As for what we've been playing, Cody got his first win in Blackout, while Sam has had a disappointing run in horror games with Daylight, No More Room in Hell and Cry of Fear. contact@geekheartgames.com Twitter & Facebook: @geekheartgames Twitch.tv/GeekHeartGames geekheartgames.com/youtube geeekheartgames.com/discord geekheartgames.com/shirts or geekheartgames.com/shirt Cody: @comicbookcody.
