Get your fuzzy blankey and turn on the lights, Imscared - A Pixelated Nightmare lives up to its name. This short and simple horror game from Ivan Zanotti puts you in a dark corridor and asks you to explore a bit, gathering keys in order to gain access to different rooms. You know you "need a heart" to make it to the exit, but surely that's some sort of riddle, isn't it? And that portrait totally had blood on it the first time you looked at it, you just didn't catch it in the same light... right?
Standard first person controls apply to Imscared, utilizing [WASD] to move, the mouse to look, and the [E] key to interact with things. Press [ctrl] to crouch, necessary to nab items laying on the floor. You can't interact with most things you see, but you'll be so busy holding [shift] to sprint that there's no time to stop and look through the linens. Watch the environment for clues, and try not to look over your shoulder too much. That looming darkness a few meters away is completely safe!
Imscared doesn't end when you think it does. It deceives you in many ways. Open the game's folder after you beat it and run it again. Maybe something more terrifying awaits? Or maybe it's something fun like a game of tag? Maybe you'll be too shaken up to try it again for a few hours/days/lifetimes. Either way, dark hallways and pixelated faces have rarely been this scary.
