Digital Nightmares: Ib Revisited and Resident Evil 4 Remake
This week we’re visiting the wonderfully horrific dreamscape art galleries of Ib. Dan chose the remake of the RPG maker classic, so now we’re taking a closer look. We discuss narrative design and endings as well as the past, present, and future of RPG maker games.
Stick around to the end for upcoming releases and the State of Play horror game announcements, including our thoughts on Resident Evil 4 Remake.
Games Recommended:Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Ib, Subway Midnight, and I am on Observation Duty 5.
What Is Digital Nightmares?
Welcome to Digital Nightmares, where one lucky host gets to choose their nightmare. Each month one of us is the victim, and the other three will be the killers. The killers play and bring a nightmare, a recent-ish horror game created in the last several years. The killer must explain the game and convince the victim in five minutes to play it without saying the title. After everyone has gone, the victim chooses a nightmare, and the winning killer gets a point.
Episodes will release bi-weekly on the second and last Friday of every month at 9 AM (US EST). Our next podcast releases on June 24, where Erik, Dan, and Max will present three new nightmarish horror games to Jasmine for the next round of Digital Nightmares. Along with the regular segment, we’ll also discuss recent announcements from this past week of pseudo E3 announcements on the next episode.
