When you think horror games, you might think of the Resident Evil series, or maybe even Silent Hill. How about the Five Nights At Freddy's series, or even something smaller like sleeper hit Darkwood. All of these titles take you hours to get through with jumpscares, gore, with abominations to see, hear, and kill you around every corner. Much of horror gaming is like this, but it doesn't need to be big to stick with you.
One Last Game has stuck with us. A title that recently came out from Goose Ladder Games only lasts about three minutes to experience fully and yet, it really stays in the dark parts of your mind. Thinking of the circumstances, questioning the details, and unsettling you because you know how real this game could be.
I can't go into details - I mean I could but I'm not going to, because the game is free, short, and you don't even need to download it to run it. It works right from your browser. The title is so short and compact, partly because it was made at a game jam, an event where devs are given a short amount of time to come up with a functional game. The GMTK game jam was why One Last Game was created and it had to be around the theme of out of control.
There aren't even any content warnings for the experience, so even I, a complete baby when it comes to horror, can play One Last Game without heart failure. It's far more of a lingering, slow-burn scare as all is revealed.
