Three Horror Games To Keep An Eye On

Guerrilla Collective’s Summer Game Fest live stream revealed a host of new and upcoming indie games. But amongst the Braid-esque puzzle-platformers and narrative-driven adventures, there were several horror games worth keeping an eye on. Here’s what we noticed.

The fridge is red

Today’s stream highlight, The Fridge is Red, looks like what you might find if you search hell for video games. Heavily inspired by PlayStation 1 horror games – Silent Hill in particular – it tells the story of Frank, stuck in his basement and staring at the eponymous red fridge for days. “It’s not only the fear of a horrible death that keeps him in place, but also the hope of getting his daughter back,” reads the game’s Steam page.

The Fridge is Red is a collection of different horror stories – or “episodes”. In the trailer we see terrifying waiting rooms, people frozen in place, objects frozen in mid-air, bright-eyed church congregations, and an elevator that supposedly sends us into the bowels of the underworld. At one point, in what is undoubtedly the trailer’s most gruesome moment, an eye is gouged out with an elevator button.

The game’s low-poly aesthetic makes The Fridge is Red more unnerving. Due to the lack of detail, the brain fills in the blanks. What is rendered on screen is nothing compared to what is going on in our heads.

Although there is no release date yet, you can play The Fridge is Red now if you want. A free demo is available on Steam.


Keeping that PS1 inspiration, Signalis also relies on a low-poly aesthetic for its scares. Borrowing from Capcom’s mid-to-late ’90s horror games like Resident Evil and Dino Crisis, and Squaresoft’s Parasite Eve, you play as Magpie, “a replica technician searching for her lost partner and lost dreams. ” Signalis is set in the future where humans have discovered a mysterious ‘dark secret’. I would assume it’s our job to unravel the mystery – with all the monsters and jumpscares that come with us on the journey.

The trailer from Signalis has atmosphere. Sure it looks spooky, spooky and all that jazz, but what I take away the most is how melancholic it comes across. Which admittedly sells the horror a lot better. Signalis doesn’t look like a fun world in terms of both her horrors and sadness.

The big news today is the release date of Signalis: October 27th.


Finally something you can play right away. While Industria might not look as spooky as the previous two games, it certainly looks interesting.

Like a cross between Half-Life 2 and Dishonored, Industria is a “steelpunk” game set in East Berlin during a Cold War parallel universe. The trailer shows our protagonist battling a variety of creepy robots while exploring evocative and strange environments on her search for a missing colleague.

Industria’s trailer ended with a surprise: it’s available now. Play it on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and PC. Three Horror Games To Keep An Eye On
