The 15 most awaited horror videogames of 2016

This year comes with a bunch of games for the horror lovers. We'll see sequels, horror icons and brand new stories that promise to scare the hell out of us. If you are eager to stay up all night this year, let's take a look to the most anticipated horror videogames to be released in the next months:

1. Layers of Fear

Layers of Fear - Horror Videogames of 2016

Defined as a psychedelic horror game, you'll be exploring into the insane mind of a painter and discover the secret of his madness by exploring a constantly changing Victorian mansion. What horrors and weirdness are hidden in that psicotic mind? What is that "masterpiece" that the tormented artist needs to finish so bad? We'll see.

2.  Outlast 2

Outlast 2 - Horror Videogames of 2016

This long awaited sequel is a twisted new journey into the depths of the human mind and its dark secrets. What are the boundaries of the human nature? How far will violence and depravity go when justified by the divine? This game will take us to a place where going mad is the only sane thing to do. Sounds great.

3. We Happy Few

We Happy Few - Horror Videogames of 2016

In a few words, this is a game of paranoia and survival in a drugged-out dystopian 1964 british town. Everybody is happy in Wellington Wells, a fake distopian city of a retro futuristic England. You are a "downer" and deny to take the happy drug "joy" anymore, so you'll have to fight your way out of that hostile place. Beware not to be stabbed by one of those happy looking psychos.

4. Friday the 13th : The Game

Friday the 13th  - Horror Videogames of 2016

Jason Voorhees is back this fall to slaughter some camp counselors at Camp Crystal Lake. You get to play as Jason or one of the seven remaining counselors and avoid being killed in new and inventive ways. The makers claim to be "revitalizing the golden era of slashers, and putting you at the controls of each horrific, blood-splattered moment", and they might be right, they even got Kane Hodder, who played the character in four consecutive films, to do Jason's motion capture for the game.

5. Allison Road

 Allison Road  - Horror Videogames of 2016

Silent Hills didn't make it, but Allison Road will fill the empty hole. You don't remember anything, you are alone in the house and feel that something is stalking you in the dark. You can't tell what's real and what's not and he clock keeps ticking towards 3:00am. Will you find out what happened and survive the scary entities that lurke in the dark? The kickstarter campaign has really great images of the concept art, like the one in the main image of this post.

Visually inspired by Art Déco and Film Noir, the game is shown in dark and high contrast shades. Is a self constructing narrative where the story is based on the choices you make, on what memories are added in or leave left out while trying to discover your past and find out who you really are.

7. What Remains of Edith Finch

This one is a collection of short stories and you can choose to experience the life of a different cursed family member, from the 1900s to the present day. In this first person game, you'll follow Edith Finch into her pursuit to find the last Finch alive in the vast and unknowable world around us.
