Within the last couple of years, most of the best horror games we received were from indie developers, including the likes of Outlast, Amnesia, SOMA and many more. Quarter Circle Games’ first-person horror title, The Peterson Case, looks promising enough to join the latter list.
The Peterson Case puts players in the shoes of detective Franklin Reinhardt as he unravels the mysteries buried in an abandoned house. The studio believes the title has “the perfect balance between atmospheric horror, suspenseful narrative, and engaging puzzles.” Here is a brief description of the title:
