A message from Daydreams:
“Before you know it October is here. CardCastles has morphed and changed a lot in the last five years. What was once just my little wonderland come-to-life is now a team, a community, and a growing company’s merge. You will see some of those changes in the near future, but for now on this glorious fall first day of October, let’s kick off this celebratory tradition.
I am proud to say this is the third year of #31Nightmares. This is solely due to reader demand. We get messages year ‘round now looking forward to this event so we aim to dream up each year better than the last.
This year we will be talking about horror in video games, movies, television, and its influence on some music. We will also be exploring horror in sound, both in special effects, and soundtracks. There will be art, there will be writing. There will be tributes to many we lost in recent years that helped pave the way and even create new lanes for this genre.
We are glad to be doing it all with you for another year this 2017 and we hope you will stick around for all 31 days/nights.
Welcome to 31Nightmares 2017!“
For those of you new to the site or just plain new to this series,
here’s a little about how it got its start.
This week during our opener, we will be diving into recent creations in the horror genre that have been stirring buzz in both video games and television.
One game this year that has stood out to us during my work with many different levels and mediums of the genre was The Evil Within 2.
We own the first installment in our collection here at home. My other half has beaten it to shreds. I’ve yet to go far in the campaign myself due to a busy schedule this year, but I certainly liked what I saw so far. This sequel looks promising and I have to admit I thought it was a genius marketing idea to drop the game on Friday the 13th this year in October. The bits of imagery in the story trailer featured below could remind you of something straight out of your nightmares.
