A recent but fun genre on the scene is survival horror, where players try to survive games that attempt to create terrifying scenes and play with their emotions. For the most part, these have focused on the "scary monster" variety; Resident Evil and Dino Crisis were two of the big names.

In their value software line, Dreamcatcher have given us a new variant on the genre; instead of re-creating monster movies, they've gone for high school horror flicks, creating what's a decently interesting game with its own quirks and twists.

They also did something relatively revolutionary for survival horror games, putting in a two-player mode that is superficially similar to Resident Evil 0's two-character mode, but which relies on two humans for control rather than a terminally stupid AI.

Does it work? Actually, the game's quite enjoyable and fun, especially in the dead of night with all the lights turned off.
