Thanks to Kotaku for this post about Dementium: The Ward, a new horror game for the Nintendo DS. It looks pretty good (especially considering how well other non-horror adventure games have turned out on that system), and I’m really happy to see people exploring horror themes on a handheld. I’ll definitely pick this up when it comes out.
In related news, Touch the Dead, another zombie-themed DS game, is really goddamn hard. A good friend got a copy and we’ve been unable to beat the first level!
Update: Here’s a pretty good interview with the developer of The Ward, Renegade Kid. They are confident that survival horror will work on the DS without much trouble. I am looking forward to this game a lot.
