Before diving into the first of our end-of-the-year coverage, listen to last month’s edition of The Inventory, Safe Room’s monthly review round-up.
Between finalizing holiday plans, purchasing gifts, and compiling those dreaded (or delightful) end-of-the-year lists, we are officially in our mad dash to the end of the year!
This year Neil and I started our monthly segment, Horror Bytes, in which we highlight bite-sized indie horror titles. Which began as an exercise to experience a more comprehensive, and let’s face it, weirder, types of horror experiences. The show flourished into a monthly personal highlight for us, as we experienced countless slices of horror that had their own unique flavors.
We also invited guests to bring their picks to our proverbial spooky table, furthering our dive into the never-shrinking pool of horror delights. And somehow, we narrowed our respective lists down to merely EIGHT Horror Bytes from the year. And while all couldn’t make the list, we recommend everyone to go back and listen to past episodes of Horror Bytes as, more often than not, the games we cover ended up delivering in one way or another.
And as always, while some of these titles we’ll be discussing are free to play, we believe it’s important to support the developer’s hard work: So, if you can, please support them through their itch.io, Steam, or Patreon pages. And it’s the season of giving, so support those who make the content you enjoy. – Jay Krieger
