Pixels in Peril – A Talk by Kristen McGorry

A brief history of horror games from someone who has wasted most of her life playing (and writing) them.  

Videogames get the blood pumping in a way even the most terrifying horror film can’t. From the comfort of your own sofa you’re right in the middle of the high-stakes, life and death action. Unloading both barrels into a licker at Umbrella Corp. Running down the corner to see something decidedly inhuman slithering away. A world of mysterious notes to read. Dark corridors to explore. It’s all about you and the choices you make. 

And spoiler alert, you’re probably (definitely) going to die.
