Pixels ‘n Peril

Join writers KAITLIN TREMBLAY (Dames Making Games) and EVAN MILLAR (Rue Morgue magazine) for a detailed look at the evolution of horror in video games, as well as an in-depth exploration of must-play titles. From the genre’s humble 8-bit and text-based beginnings to the cinematic, grandiose nightmares of today’s big budget/indie adventures, find out what games stood out upon release and influenced an entire generation of developers and players alike. Q&A session to follow.
