To quote Eric Cartman off South Park:

“Well, I’m done.  I no longer understand this world. I think i’ll go home and kill myself now.

Goodbye friends. ..”

I just played one of the best and weirdest horror RPGs ever. It’s called Lisa: The Painful RPG.

Lisa is about a world in which a disease killed all the women in which the player plays as a drug junkie Brad, who finds the last alive female on the planet, a child named Buddy. He swears to protect her and with a group of friends, adopts her in secret. But one day, Brad returns to his home to see that his group is killed and that Buddy is gone. He ventures on a quest to find her before some harm comes to her.

Lisa’s gameplay is heavily inspired by Earthbound. The player explores the 2D world like a platformer, but the battles are standard turn based JRPG fame. The game mixes humor with disturbing elements to achieve a very surreal atmosphere. The player will occasionally be forced to make a moral choice that doesn’t really reflect the ending, but the gameplay, like when you have to chose between losing an arm or killing a companion. I would recommend the game to anyone interested in the storyline, because that’s where the game really shines.

I play strange little games like this one. I will have to look into it.

This week, I’ve been “trying” to play White Day.

This one is a obscure free Korean gem set in a haunted school in which you control a trapped school boy trying too escape (sounds familiar, doesn’t it Wink ). On first glance, you could call this an Amnesia clone, but actually Amnesia came after White Day, so we can see some clear inspirations. The game features multiple endings based on your dialogue choices and has a generally terrifying atmosphere. Your main enemies are a couple of possessed school janitors and a haunting or two. It also has some of the best sound design in gaming as a whole. Overall, a pretty solid game, but I don’t think I will be finishing this one. I can’t bring myself to play for more than five minutes. I recommend this one to every horror game enthusiast, and especially Mikekelly as this is kinda like First-Person Amnesia-like Corpse Party.

This looks really interesting. Played a little of it in E3:

One of the most macabre & certainly one of the hardest adventures I ever played must be the Black Dahlia. Never did finish it, but it was really good, & hopefully will go back to it one day, though must be 17 years old by now.

I must admit, this game looks REALLY interesting:

The game was just okay with you playing the role of “cameraman”. The game was pretty cheesy.

mini movie promo for the game.

In a way , it was kind of similiar to the PS2 japanese FMV horror game “The fear” where you also play the cameraman.

Back when i was younger , the old game “Space hulk” used to scare the crap out of me.

I have this game. I need to replay it. I’m playing Grim Fandango for a 2nd time right now and it’s very fun - so Black Dahlia should be too.
