One of my most anticipated games for 2013–which has been listed on my Most Wanted page for what feels like forever now–is an indie point-and-click adventure horror game called Asylum . I’ve posted the trailer before on this blog and tweeted about it probably hundreds of times over the past year (which as far as I’m concerned isn’t enough). And now I’m going to post the interactive teaser because even though this came out last month, it somehow managed to escape my attention until today. Shame on me.
Here’s where you can download the playable teaser , which is available for PC, Mac, and Ubuntu.
I spent a good 20 minutes or so exploring the condemned halls of Hanwell Mental Institute and I was more than sufficiently creeped out. The game seems to be shaping up to be a worthy follow-up to Scratches, the previous game by developer Agustin Cordes of Senscape . I consider Scratches one of the scariest computer games I’ve ever played. Here’s hoping that Asylum will soon share that honor.
