It’s a serious tragedy for survival horror fans that the Gamecube’s exceptional game, Eternal Darkness, never received a sequel or some form of modern remaster. One of the most groundbreaking concepts in Eternal Darkness is the use of sanity effects, which warp the player’s perception of in-game effects. These sanity effects go to some extreme lengths, including making the player think that their volume is increased, their video output has disconnected, or even that all of their save game data is about to be erased. It’s an excellent way to add stress to the player’s tense experience.

Somewhere in rural Scotland in the 1980s, a secret research facility is overwhelmed by a cosmic, unknowable horror called the Black Iris. Some of the scientists begin worshipping this powerful entity, and establish a bizarre religion around it, leading to the facility being mysteriously abandoned. This is the brilliantly spooky premise of The Black Iris, a mind-bending horror game from solo indie developer Jamie Ferguson.The first thing that hits you is that fever dream art style. The vivid fluorescent colours, woozy, abstract low-resolution visuals, and feeling of isolation and claustrophobia collide to create something uniquely unsettling. As you explore the eerily lifeless facility you find clues that paint a twisted picture of the the nature of the Black Iris and the fate of the scientists.

I am a huge fan of what they are doing with BFV. Everything is built for playability and fun, but there is a deep history to be told. Strategy, understanding weapons, and tactics will be more powerful than raw twitch nerves. The pacing of the game is frantic and releasing different parts of the world over time just adds to the delight of booting this game up.
The Internet Archive, who acts as a library to the past, was able to get clearance to allow free access to a ton of old DOS games. An interesting stroll down memory lane.
This may be the worst video game ever made….
