Silver Chains, the first person horror title from studio Cracked Heads, will terrorize PC gamers come August 6th. The game has all the horror staples accounted for: a mysterious accident, a disoriented traveler, a haunted mansion that doesn't want to let him leave. Unfortunately it also has a few cliches too: you apparently can't fight whatever evil thing is hunting you, and most of the gameplay is supposedly focused on exploration and puzzles. Here's hoping Silver Chains can buck the old spooky canards and doesn't end up as just another walking simulator with jump scares, because very few so-called "horror" games these days avoid that pitfall and do the genre justice.
