To get everyone pumped up for Halloween, Dana and Cody dive into some of the most dreadful games out there: ANATOMY, Grandmother, CHYRZA and 000000FF0000, all by developer Kitty Horrorshow.
All these games are super short, so we enter the spoiler zone around 14:14. Most of them are also free, with the exception of ANATOMY.
Dana and Cody creep down back alleys, slink past exsanguination chairs and descend into the Void itself to kill a god in Dishonored: Death of the Outsider from Arkane Studios.
