Things may need quietened down after final week’s not-E3 barrage of streams, however that doesn’t imply we’re fairly out of videogame hell. Tonight, the parents at retro horror neighborhood Haunted PS1 are delivering their very own “EEK3” showcase – lining up trailers for over 40 low-fidelity indie spook ’em ups, together with a whole digital conference flooring to play them in.
Following the costly advertising and marketing barrage we’ve skilled over the previous few weeks, tonight’s EEK3 showcase is promising an altogether extra “grimey” occasion.
A motion of kinds that’s sprung up over the past 12 months, Haunted PS1 is a unfastened neighborhood of indie devs and hobbyists creating horror games rooted within the aesthetics of the 90s. Following within the footsteps of up to date builders like Kitty Horrorshow and Paratopic builders Arbitrary Metric, Haunted PS1 beforehand confirmed off a slew of low-poly scares with the Haunted PS1 Demo Disk.
Like that free “disk”, tonight’s showcase is one other neat initiative to point out off the neighborhood’s newest spooks. There are over 40 games lined up for in the present day’s showcase – games which might be “released or releasing this year” – and if that had been all, it’d be advantageous. An fascinating stream, for positive, however simply one other atop the numerous we’ve already seen throughout this never-ending summer of E3.
In a wild twist, although, Haunted PS1 contributors Marcus Horn and Bryce Bucher have gone and put collectively their very own virtual E3 convention floor. Painted in the identical 4:three low-poly stylings because the games on present, you’ll be capable to play the games on the present flooring after catching them on stream. I’ve by no means been to E3, however I in some way can’t think about HPS1’s grim tackle the LA Convention Center comes even near the soul-draining impact of going to the true factor.
