Before listening to this month’s edition of Horror Bytes, check out last month’s discussion on Atomic Heart, Resident Evil Village VR, and more!
For this month’s edition of Horror Bytes, in which Neil and I each highlight bite-sized indie titles, we have a new crop of horror experiences to chat about that can typically be completed in less than an hour.
And while some of these titles we’ll be discussing may be free, we believe it’s important to support the developers hard work: So if you can, please support them through their itch.io, steam, or Patreon pages.
