It’s not about the gore and jump scares: the real horror comes from those universal terrors. But don’t be afraid: issue seven of Wireframe is out today, February 14, and this most romantic of days hosts a genuine spooktacular of an issue.
You'll be able to buy the magazine at your local supermarket or independent newsagent in the UK, and if that’s not your bag you can order a copy, subscribe, or even download a free PDF of the complete issue from this very site.
So what do we have to sweeten the deal? Well...
We take a look at the very real paternal fears inspiring Someday You’ll Return, the psychological horror title from a two-man Czech studio and backed – in part – by an EU grant. Elsewhere we check out Hoa, the Ghibli-inspired beauty-‘em-up (a new genre invented just for the game), while our in-depth guide to making your first shooter in Unity comes to its triumphant close.
And what else? This else:
• The art of making games with physical – not digital – materials
• A look at the still vital Dreamcast homebrew scene
• We chat to veteran scribe Chris Avellone about Degress of Separation
• Reviews of Resident Evil 2, Pikuniku, Sunless Skies, and more besides
Plus more! But we’re done listing things – you can check out the most romantic spook-a-thon of them all for yourself. The issue. We’re talking about the magazine.
