Inmates Launch Trailer

You know what the worst thing about horror games is? It's always the unreliable light source that either snuffs out at the worst possible time or has an operational life shorter than a fruit fly's orgasm.

Shadowy puzzle platformers are all the rage since Limbo proved they were both visually impressive and could deliver the feels with only a silhouette and some gruesome deaths.
