Paranoid is an upcoming horror game that we’re hugely excited for. The trailer alone is chilling enough, and the gameplay demo video seems to confirm that this will be a butt-clencher for sure.  

The game, developed by Madmind Studio, follows the story of recluse Patrick after he receives a call, and subsequent visit, from his estranged sister who disappeared years ago.  

We highly recommend you keep an eye out for Paranoid as it has the potential to be a survival horror game masterpiece.

Martha is Dead is an upcoming 2021 horror game developed by LKA. Based in Tuscany, Italy, it is believed that the game will contain heavy elements of psychological distress and superstition. 

Set in 1944, during the Second World War, players take on the role of Martha’s twin sister, after she is found floating in a lake in mysterious circumstances. 

Expectations are high for Martha is Dead, and it could well be one of the best new games of 2021.  

6. Scorn

Scorn is a fps horror game that has been a long time in the making. First announced in 2014, the game by Ebb Software finally looks set to be released in 2021. 

Judging by the gameplay demos and trailers dripped into the public domain so far, it seems like the wait will have been worth while. It should be noted that this game isn’t for the squeamish and faint of heart.

Indeed, even the most hardy of horror fans may recoil at some of the nightmarish creatures on display in Scorn – even the playable character is a skinless humanoid with a worrying penchant for guns and chaos. 

5. Unholy

Utilizing elements of stealth and horror, the dark and mysterious world is explored from first-perspective and there are an abundance of terrors to discover.
