This Week’s Indie Horror Game

One part survival horror, one part Roguelike dungeon crawler, Daylight tasks you with finding your way out of a procedurally generated haunted hospital, with glow sticks, flares and your cell phone’s flash being your only weapons against the horrors found within. Genuinely creepy looking, with potentially huge amounts of replay, Daylight will likely be one of this year’s standout indie horror titles.

The citizens of the Mushroom Kingdom have once again agreed to briefly call off the kidnapping and head-stomping for a quick back-nine in Mario Golf: World Tour. If you’ve played past Mario Golf games, you know what to expect — a surprisingly deep golf experience with a nice thick layer of Mario-flavored icing on top.
