Less of a game and more of a linear interactive movie, Haunted House Massacre still manages to deliver some decent atmosphere. Its rather linear qualilty also makes it a bit easier to get through than many of the other games that are sprinkled through this Gothtoberfest post-a-thon. A little change of pace in the silly/spooky games: Help Father Painbringer bring peace to the undead hordes in Ghoul Academy, through the gentle medium of the double-barrel shotgun. Fill the Ghoul Harvest Meter by destroying ghouls in any way you can. That brings us to the end of your Gothtoberfest post-a-thon. We now return you to your regularly scheduled MoFi. Happy Halloween!
Exmortis is a Flash game with some excellent atmosphere. The opening premise is rather familiar in games of this type - you wake up in the woods with a lump on your head, no memory, and a creepy old house ahead of you. Turn the lights down, the sound up, and get ready for a decently spooky atmosphere as you explore the mysteries of the abandoned building. The sequel is a good followup to Exmortis. Though the game can stand alone, it really picks up where the first one left off, as you deal with the aftermath of events in Exmortis. Squeamish be warned: graphic content and profanity to be found in the Exmortis games.
