When it comes to horror something about the '80s just hits harder. The look, the music, the feel—the 1980s is just the perfect era for creepy stuff. Developer LCB Game Studio seems to have recognized that, which is why its next game, Bahnsen Knights, is both set in 1986 and looks like a PC game that could have been released right around that same time.
Bahnsen Knights is actually the latest in a series of games from LCB Game Studio and publisher Chorus Worldwide Games known as Pixel Pulps. These adventure games use stylized retro graphics and music to tell unsettling horror stories. In the case of Bahnsen Knights, that story revolves around Boulder, an undercover agent who has been sent to Tornado Alley to infiltrate and take down an evil cult.
That cult isn't giving up without a fight, though, and the deeper Boulder gets into his investigation, the more it seems like these fanatics may have actually tapped into some sort of supernatural power. We can't wait to see what twists and turns away in this tale. LCB Game Studio is promising a branching narrative, as well as lots of puzzles to solve as you work your way through it.
Bahnsen Knights arrives on December 14, 2023 for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X and S. We'll be holding our own investigation and will report back with our findings; watch out for a quick review from one of TapTap's editors closer to the game's launch.

When Stranger Things isn’t enough ‘80s nostalgia – Should you play Unusual Findings?
Unusual Findings by Epic Llama is a game that’s been on my radar for some time. In fact, I played the demo version a few months back and came away most impressed. The full game is an amusing adventure full of quirky characters, interesting locations, and unexpected moments. The story might tread familiar ground, but it’s so goddamn charming that it doesn’t really matter. The puzzles are engaging, and the characters are spot on. In addition to all that, there are multiple endings and ways to overcome obstacles, so there’s a good bit of replayability to boot.
Back to the 90's horror
Deifinitely a good story game, the visuals give a retro feel and the sound is accompanied by a dynamic soundtrack, however, there are still a lot of texts involved in the gameplay.  Very atmospheric and environmental. In this game, you will need to interact with various hotspots and solve puzzles in order to complete a series of tasks. You may need to run or hide in order to survive, but if you fail and die, you can simply restart the scene because the game saves at each scene.
