October Twitch Live-Streaming Recap

Another Castle’s 31 Days of Horror event through the month of October was well-received and a great opportunity for the Twitch live-streaming team. Tyler, Brandon, Spencer, and occasionally Jen all jumped in to play some of their favorite horror titles and some brand-new experiences throughout the month-long celebration. Through it the writers were each given nightmares, heart attacks, and frequent sleepless nights all for the sake of entertaining you, the viewer.

In case you missed any of last month’s scares, we’ve uploaded them all to our YouTube page and present to you a few of October’s favorites. Be sure to join us in theme-less November as we welcome a new Monday addition to the stream team, John.

Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street:

The NES: It was the home of some of the most revered classic video game titles of all-time. It was also the home of video game adaptations of both Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th, both of which are undesirable works. That is, of course, if you’re looking for a quality narrative experience within the interactive medium. If you are interested in seeing two brothers be driven crazy by 8-bit renditions of modern horror’s most commercially milked characters, then those two games are precious gems.

Watch more retro games via our Twitch live-stream with Spencer every Saturday.

Yume Nikki:

Though various aspects of Kikiyama’s Yume Nikki could have been executed with more finesse, exploring the game’s dark themes was indeed a unique experience. Its surrealistic aesthetic and twisted mental exploration was a great thing to see from such an independent developer.

Looking for more indie games worth checking out? Watch our live-stream of The Long Dark, Rex Rocket, or StarMade in November.

The Walking Dead: The Game — Season One:

Every Saturday in the month of October, Brandon played another episode from season one of Telltale’s The Walking Dead for the first time. It may be a few years old, but the potency of the relationship between Lee and Clementine never wears. In addition, seeing another player lose his or her moral compass is an interesting thing to see.

If you’re interested in our full-game play through streams, be sure to check out Brandon play the original Parasite Eve throughout the month of November.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent:

Amnesia is a true Horror gem that implements superbly unique mechanics to its otherwise dull story. The concept of amnesia is a tired narrative device, but when paired with such a dark and twisted world for the player to explore and become mentally lost in, it takes on new breadth.

Join Tyler in November for Deadcore or Hands of Fate as he attempts to play through the games every Tuesday and Thursday.

Five Nights at Freddy’s:

By far our best moments during 31 Days of Horror were the Five Nights at Freddy’s streams. Arguably this year’s most well-crafted horror game, Five Nights at Freddy’s proves top be an astoundingly tense horror experience even with all the lights on. Both Brandon and Tyler partook of this horror gem on two separate nights.

You can see more of Brandon as he plays through the new Binding of Isaac: Rebirth later this month.

Alien: Isolation: 

Navigating through the Sevastopol may seem like an easy feat, but throw in a few murder bots, looters / survivors, and xenomorphs into the mix and it’s a harrowing field of frustration and repetitive death. Watch an agitated Jen attempt to make it through Alien: Isolation through on onslaught of fails and f-bombs.
