Telltale’s The Walking Dead (RM16.00)
A five-part adventure horror series set in the same universe as Robert Kirkman’s award-winning comic book series.
I won’t lie to you. Telltale’s The Walking Dead is still one of the best narrative-based horror games out there, with a story and cast of characters that are phenomenal. Plus, this is only the first season of the series, so if you like it, you can definitely check out the other ones.
Also, bring tissues.
Hollow Knight (RM15.50)
Granted, Hollow Knight may not be the best search action 2D game, but it is the most atmospheric and chilling. The fights you go through are challenging, the world itself is intriguing, and the soundtrack is pleasant yet haunting at the same time. Just don’t expect anything along the calibre of Bloodstained and Super Metroid.
