Blumhouse Is Going All In On Horror Games, Including One From Sam Barlow And Brandon Cronenberg

Blumhouse Games revealed six titles during Summer Game Fest, including a brief tease of Sam Barlow's next game, which is being developed with Brandon Cronenberg.


Blumhouse Games had its own sizzle trailer during Summer Game Fest, announcing its involvement in six upcoming horror games, including one of the next projects from Sam Barlow and Half Mermaid. The final announcement in the trailer was for Project C, coming from Sam Barlow and Half Mermaid, who are working with Brandon Cronenberg, son of David Cronenberg and a horror filmmaker.

The teaser didn't include any gameplay from Project C, but it did include gameplay for five other titles. First was Crisol Theater of Idols, a first-person horror game featuring life-sized dolls and other monstrosities. After that was Grave Seasons, a pixel-art farming sim with horror elements. Third was Sleep Awake, a first-person horror title in a sci-fi setting.

Fear the Spotlight was shown fourth. It's a third-person retro horror game, featuring plenty of puzzles and surreal scares. The Simulation was the final announcement before the Project C reveal, which is a first-person horror game where you play a video game developer exploring a creepy game via a VR headset.

While exact details for most of the games were scarce, it was announced that Fear the Spotlight would be releasing later this year, with a trailer coming during Day of the Devs. Jason Blum said on stage after the trailer that the games would be coming to consoles and PC, but didn't provide specific details for any single game. Project C is available for wishlisting on Steam, although the page doesn't reveal much, except that it's an FMV sci-fi horror game.
