I have many fond memories of playing games like MYST and The 7th Guest, having grown up in the days of early ’90s gaming. Then mystery / horror games evolved into more action-oriented titles like Resident Evil, and more recently Outlast and Alien: Isolation. And here we are today, with a return to a focus […]
