They may have fallen a little short the first time around, but indie developer Suzaku found success in their second Kickstarter campaign for Sense: A Cyberpunk Ghost Story, a mix of Blade Runner-esque dystopian science fiction with a classic J-Horror ghost story.
Last year, Deceptive Games immersed players in a house full of traps and puzzles in The Initiate. But that wasn't the end of the trials, as now the indie developer has released a sequel called The First Interviews on Steam Early Access.

Have you ever wondered how F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby might have turned out if J. R. R. Tolkien had written it?
