View Full Version : Free Horror Game Erie Is Certainly Eerie

10-12-12, 11:40 AM
The vigilant eyes of PCG (http://www.pcgamer.com/2012/10/12/erie-spray-what-you-want-in-this-spooky-free-first-person-horror/) noticed this one free over at Desura (http://www.desura.com/games/erie). Itā??s a student project from the University Of Utahā??s EAE Master Games Studio Program, and itā??s been dropped on to Desura for no pennies. Its not exactly polished, and a lot more could have been squeezed out of its UDK shell, but the idea is solid. Iā??ve had a bit of a run around in it, and I can report this: erk. Itā??s got some horrible sound effects, and is definitely a good exercise in spooky. (It also has a note from ā??Jimā?? at the start, and I donā??t know why I would have left myself a note in a free horror game. Spooks!) Itā??s basically a maze/exploration sort of thing, with one novel ideal: you have a spray can you can mark your passage with. Thereā??s also something in the corridors with youā?¦

Iā??ve also posted a trailer below, if you want to look at that. You might, you know. Iā??ll put the kettle on in the meantime.
