Who says that horror games are just for October?! Within recent weeks there have been the likes of The Quarry, FOBIA – St Dinfna Hotel and Oxide Room 104 all offering scares. This latest release may just be the scariest of the lot though. MADiSON is out today on Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation and PC.
A first-person horror game made by just two people, it looks at first glance to be heavily inspired by P.T. You wake up in a dark room with no memories, blood on your hands and your sister and mother have been murdered. How do you begin to understand this? Armed only with a camera that just so happens to be possessed, you must make sense of this nightmare scenario.
You will be hunted by the ghost of an evil murderer known as MADiSON, but she is just the tip of the iceberg. Each character has their own horrors that blend in and out of the main narrative. Take photos of what you find and find the truth within them.
Each playthrough will favour thanks to random elements and changing puzzles. If you can stomach MADiSON once, how will you fare with a second playthrough?
The terrifying looking MADiSON is out now on the Xbox Store, priced at £29.99. As a reminder, this is only playable on Xbox Series X|S consoles. We will have a review coming soon, once we’ve changed our pants for some clean ones.
What would you do if you woke up locked in a dark room, with your hands covered in blood – your sister and mother massacred? MADiSON is an immersive and terrifying first-person psychological horror game, featuring disturbing gameplay and an unsettling and compelling narrative. With the help of an ‘possessed’ instant camera, connect the human world with the beyond. Solve puzzles, explore your surroundings and most importantly, survive. Throughout your journey you are haunted by MADiSON, the ghost of an evil murderer, who is forcing you to continue a gory ritual started decades ago and commit abominable acts. She wants you to finish her sinister ceremony. Do you have the strength to resist? It’s not just her that you need to worry about. There is more than one evil entity in MADiSON and every character has a disturbing story that blends seamlessly into the main narrative. Use the instant camera to survive this torture. Develop the photos you take manually and face the fear of unveiling the truth. Search everything, pick up elements and interact with them to survive the entities. Randomly activated events and changing puzzles throughout the game assures a higher level of replayability as you get lost in this immersive and terrifying experience. Watch every step you make and be careful not to attract any unwanted attention. You won’t be alone.
