Today, prolific indie publisher Assemble Entertainment and solo developer Tainted Pact bring us a terrifying descent into survival horror madness: Suffer the Night. Available now on Steam, GOG, and, Suffer the Night bleeds together campy 80s slasher vibes with the familiar feel of anxiety-inducing first-person survival horror, and the added bonus of classic dungeon crawler gameplay.

After receiving an envelope containing a mysterious floppy disk, Stacey boots it up on her old Eldrixon personal computer and begins playing. As she progresses through the terror of the text-based adventure, she’s visited by a mysterious and threatening stranger, urging her to finish his game.
