The Fear Factor: What Makes a Game Scary?

This panel brings together three games developers to discuss what elements make for a good scare—and how these play out in games. Mundaun is the first full-length title from Hidden Fields, a one-man studio founded by Swiss programmer and illustrator Michel Ziegler and takes a unique approach to horror. The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope is an interactive drama survival horror video game developed by Supermassive Games, makers of Until Dawn. It is the second of eight planned installments in The Dark Pictures Anthology series and the successor to Man of Medan. Little Nightmares 2 is the upcoming sequel to Little Nightmares, the puzzle-platformer horror adventure game developed by Tarsier Studios.
