A lot of people have been cautious about the game Faceless because its primary selling point is having co-op in a Slenderman setting. Well, the new horror-survival game Survivors proves that co-op can work perfectly fine and that sometimes the more people you have with you the scarier it is.
Survivors has a nicely written preview on Tek Goblin, detailing some of the finer points of the game as well as explaining what makes the game more intense and scary than Slender: The Eight Pages.
But don't just take the written word for it. Check out the gameplay session of three friends below as the werewolf heads through the forest picking them off one by one. It's literally like playing through one of those horror movies that we usually think are quite cheesy, except it seems kind of scary when you're actually playing.
I'm not sure what's up with the whole mechanic dudes in the forest bit, and the graphics obviously had some problems, but it still looks like a very harrowing experience. The fact that you're kind of defenseless while trying to gather up the 11 cards before the teleporting, blood-wolf grabs you is kind of cool. I do think it's a bit cheap though that you don't have anyway to defend yourself, something that seems to be getting addressed with games like The Intruder and Faceless.
The beta for the game is currently available over at the Official Website.
