Harvest Hunt indie survival horror roguelike screenshot of the dreadful swamp

[Update]: My review for Harvest Hunt is now live, so if you're curious how well a survival-horror and a roguelike mesh together, I welcome you to give it a look.

In a bit of an interesting twist on the usual survival horror formula, the upcoming Harvest Hunt has decided to mix in a bunch of different roguelike elements in order to hopefully keep things tense and interesting for a long time to come. As such, not only will you have to contend with an eldritch horror stalking you through a fetid swamp, but also a variety of random modifiers that can drastically shift the balance in either direction and prevent you from getting too comfortable.

Personally, I really like this idea. Fear of the unknown can be a remarkably strong factor in horror games, and what better way to make the monster unknowable than by constantly changing the rules!

But enough of my yapping! If you're curious what Harvest Hunt looks like in action, as well as what sort of random effects you'll have to deal with, you can find what you seek in the trailer below:

If you're in the mood for a hands-on approach, it's also worth mentioning that Harvest Hunt has a free demo available. You can check it out, as well as learn more about it, over at Steam.

Enjoy, and I'll make sure to let you know once my full review is ready as I have a feeling there's going to be quite a lot to talk about Harvest Hunt.
