In Western culture, both Friday and the number 13 are considered unlucky. So when the 13th day of the month falls on a Friday, it’s like a double whammy of unlucky. Whether you’re superstitious or not, Friday the 13th (which is today in case you didn’t notice!) is a fun excuse to indulge in something frightful, and since we’re a mobile gaming site let me offer up the just-released Dark Fear ($2.99). Dark Fear is a classic-style point-and-click adventure with a heavy horror vibe. We talked about it a few weeks ago but here’s the trailer again in case you missed it.
Don’t let the fact that Dark Fear is a pixel art game fool you, this sucker has an incredibly creepy and unsettling mood. The story is (so far) full of intrigue and with each bit of progress I’ve made I’m excited to see where the game goes next. It also has a wonderful soundtrack which really sets the mood. It’s been a while since I’ve felt so sucked into a game, but Dark Fear is having that effect on me. So if you’re looking for a way to get a little freaked out on this Friday the 13th, I’d highly suggest giving Dark Fear some consideration and checking out the forums for more.
