This week I’ve been taking a look at two short but very different Indie Freebies, jump-scare darkness fest Dead Man’s Journey and retro-style FPS Bitsturbed.
First up is Dead Man’s Journey, a short first-person horror game from Stanislaw Truchowski, aka Turnvex Games. Recently departed, you find yourself guided through limbo by a demonic voice, forced to reflect on key events from your past life before learning your ultimate fate – that of heaven or hell. The gameplay largely revolves around re-exploring the same room time and time again in a kind of infinity loop. As you progress, the room changes in subtle ways and details of your life are revealed to you through newspaper clippings, diary entries, and notes that you happen come across.
