More scares based off of Indonesian horror tales arrives soon
DreadOut 2

The original DreadOut was a real "love it" or "hate it" sort of horror title. The game, released only on PC for Windows, Mac, and Linux, came across as a modern spin on the Fatal Frame formula. In the original, players were tasked with solving a variety of puzzles while protecting themselves from ghostly entities by photographing them with either a smartphone or a digital camera that they find through the course of playing.

DreadOut leaned heavily on tales and ghosts born from various Indonesian myths. There is apparently no real shortage of significant tales to pull from, which is probably why a sequel, DreadOut 2, was a no-brainer for developer Digital Happiness.

This sequel seems to go a bit deeper into gameplay that focuses more on action than pure horror. Preview materials for DreadOut 2 suggest that combat plays a larger role this time around, though the devs assert that this is still very much a "survival-horror" game through and through. DreadOut 2 will be released on February 20 through Steam.

A price isn't yet available for the sequel, but the original DreadOut can be found for just $14.99 (USD) on Steam. I would maybe expect the sequel to be at least that amount at launch.
