Dead by Daylight

Dead by Daylight takes place in an alternate universe where it has been known only as of the entity that has pulled the most notorious and evil killers into its dimensions.

Developed by Behaviour Interactive, it is a multiplayer survival horror game. The game is played by five members which include one killer versus four survivors. One player plays the role of a ferocious wild killer, and the other four players are survivors whose only mission is to escape to avoid being caught and killed. 

Survivors play in third-person and have the better situational awareness benefit. They try to run and escape while the murderer needs to grab them and sacrifice their souls to its pointy tentacle demon god thing. The killer plays in the first person and is more focused on their prey.

At the time of its release in 2016, it looked like a buggy mess. But, since then, the developers have done great modifications, which turned the game upside down. From the addition of new characters to fixing the game, they have done quite a lot of rework.

Outlast

Outlast is an Indie game developed by Red Barrels. It is a first-person survival horror game, and we are pretty sure you must have probably heard about this game from a million different play channels watching them scream out in terror.

Outlast is a one in a kind of horror game that gives you nothing else than the sheer experience of horror and anxiety. The only focus is the story and the horror environment. You have no weapons and no means to defend yourself. All you can do is run away or hide from enemies you encounter.

Released in 2013, Outlast has held up so much over the years that it is worth picking up for a first-time player in 2021 as well. This game has an analytical kind of look as it sets a gold standard for the modern survival horror genre.

So if you want to experience being a hopeless prey trapped in a confined space where everything wants to hunt and kill you, get your hands on Outlast.

Hunt Shutdown

If you have not been eager for a while, then Hunt Shutdown is for you.

The core idea behind Hunt Shutdown is gold. You will play as a hunter thrown into the 19th Century Gothic Swamplands of Louisiana.

The game begins when you enter a map either solo or with up to two team members to find your target, take it out and escape with an item they drop to claim their bounty. In each match, there will be around twelve players and plenty of AI-controlled lesser monsters. 

These monsters include zombies, pounds, emulators, leeches, and more. Players need to fight their way from these lesser monsters and find clues to the monster’s location. Overall, Hunt Shutdown is a breath-taking game. From astounding sound design to the atmosphere and the gritty gunfights in between, it all wraps up into one neat little game.

Project Zomboid

Project Zomboid is a hardcore zombie survival game that prides itself on difficulty and learning from your mistakes. It asks a simple question. How will you die? It’s not a survival game, so at some point, you will die. As simple as that. So, the only question it asks is how long you survive?

Developed by the Indie game, the game entered early access in 2013, and eight years later, the game is still in development. The game offers a solo as well as an online multiplayer option.

It takes place in a variety of post-apocalyptic maps where zombies rule the roost. You play as a custom-built survivor with your task of surviving as long as you can. Side by side, you have to manage a lot of other things such as your hunger wounds, sleep strength knowledge, and much more.

Project Zomboid is the king of hard stars, and it will take you multiple attempts to survive longer than a few days. Remember, no help is coming. Your continued survival relies on your cunning luck and ability to evade a relentless horde.
