Created by Polish developer Bloober Team, psychological horror game Observer released in 2017. Set in the studio’s native Poland in 2084, Observer’s protagonist is a detective that solves cases by hacking into the minds of others to augment his vision. In our Observer review, critic David Rayfield praised the storytelling, sound design, and cyberpunk world, calling it “a haunting and remarkable achievement.” Rayfield gave Observer a superb 9/10 score.
Alan Wake’s American Nightmare
If you’ve been playing Control and want to check out more of Remedy’s games, Alan Wake’s American Nightmare is well worth playing. A spin-off set in the same universe as the original Alan Wake, American Nightmare is set up as an episode of the fictional TV show Night Springs that Alan watches in the first game. In American Nightmare, Alan goes on a journey that’s full of twists and turns to defeat his evil doppelgänger Mr. Scratch. Though not exactly frightening, the spin-off has great, suspenseful writing that carried it to a 7/10 in our Alan Wake’s American Nightmare review.
While you should definitely grab these two great games (for free!), you should also check out Fanatical’s large sale on Steam games that is currently live.
