The highly-anticipated Horror game, Scorn, has been announcing by Ebb Software in 2014. It’s a new style of horror game that blends elements from a traditional shooter game and the best of what the horror genre is known for.

Scorn has an Eerie atmosphere and Terrifying creatures set in a mysterious Alien world. The videogame horror fans are on the edge of its seat, considering release is just around the corner.

If you’re still on the fence about whether or not to buy this game, here are 10 things you should consider before buying Scorn. Let’s get to it.

15 Things You Should Consider Before Buying

1. Visual style

From the first look, this game looks absolutely horrifying. The entire setting just looks unsettling. The combination of the creepy atmosphere, the grotesque monsters, and the blood and core combined the feeling of something so wrong yet so right.

So if you’re into that sort of thing, this definitely should be up your alley.

2. Story

Scorn’s narrative premise is purposefully portrayed as mysterious and unambiguous.  Not much is known other than you’re a humanoid-like creature lost on a terrifying planet.

The goals of your character are revealed as you progressed. The mystery of it all definitely adds to the horror factor overall.

3. Not a shooter.

If you expect to take on the game guns blazing, then I have bad news for you. Although it is an FPS game, developers have explicitly said that it is not a shooter.

4. Atmosphere

The game steps away from the jumpscare in-your-face horror. It’s a game that relies heavily on atmosphere and immerses players in its horror storyline.

5. Weapons

Scorn has a grotesque visual design on its guns. The game has several guns like a Grenade launch, 6 shot pistol, and more.

It seems that you can only equip one at a time considering it looks like it connects to your body.

6. Inventory and ammo management

Scorn will not be all guns blazing. It’s similar to other horror shooters where conserving and smartly using your ammo is part of the thrill.

7. Length

The game will take 6-8 hours to finish which is a sweet spot with similar games to Scorn.

8. Price

The game will retail for $39.99 which is a  fair price considering its niche.

9.4k 60 fps

In this aspect, Scorn won’t definitely disappoint the game will run in 4k, 60 frames per second.

10. Pc requirements

In case you haven’t checked it, I included the system requirements for the game before. Considering the scale of games like these, this looks like the standard PC requirements of this caliber.

Frozen Flame Review What to Expect from this new ARPG Survival Game

Dreamside Interactive is about to release its new story-based action role-playing game called the Frozen Flame. This is not just your ordinary role-playing games that deal with human NPCs that will give you certain tasks and quests to complete. Frozen Flame is more than that.

This game is about your adventure inside Arcana, a land that was once governed by dragons. Now, intoxicated by the curse, the land needs a soul capable of harnessing the primeval magic to lead the land and gather allies to fight against the Ice Citadel.

As the antagonist of the game, the Ice Citadel will spread darkness and rot over the realm.

While it is already an interesting story plot, there are still a lot of things that you have to learn aside from the story itself.

While it is exciting to know what awaits you inside the game, it is important to familiarize yourself first with basic things before we delve deeper into the game.

In this guide, we will tell you everything that you have to expect from the game. This includes the explorations, combat, world, specializations, and house buildings.

Let’s get started!

Explorations

Since the previous access to the game was just a demo, Citadel was not able to get covered. However, the first area of the game was.

In the early area of Frozen Flame, there were already enemies that needs to be taken down. Once they are killed, you can loot the items that they have to add to your inventory. You can also loot crates. Destroy them and you can collect items such as armor blueprints.

One of the first tasks you will be asked to do is search for four masks that will be used to activate the teleporter. However, these masks are protected by bosses so you will have to be in your game face.

What makes Frozen Flame more interesting is because of the vast world that it has. The whole environment has a lot of enemies to defeat, dungeons to explore, and hidden areas with chests that are yet to be discovered.

Combat

So far, the game is still lacking a variety of enemies. As of today, the only enemies that you will encounter are the floaters, cursed natives, warthogs, and skeletons that can be found in the dungeons which are very deadly.

However, it is only expected to have a limited variety of enemies, since this is just the early area of the game.

In terms of fighting, you will have a stamina bar that you have to consider. But going all-out on an enemy and using all this up won’t cause you anything.

As the game progresses, you will eventually have skills to fight enemies. But skills are not the only way to fight them. You will also have your weapons.

Skills

At first, you will have a wood-cutting axe equipped. But once your house is already built, you can start crafting weapons to significantly improve your damage.

But more importantly, you have to craft the weapon that will best match your specialization and skills which will also be covered later.

World

World

While you are roaming around the area, you will find these pillars and stone tablets that you can interact with.

These small stone tablets will give you a sneak peek at the game’s lore, while the pillars will help you activate challenges. But these challenges are just the simple ones such as catching a specific number of fish, defeating a certain number of enemies, and finding hidden objects or altars.

Both the pillars and stone tablets will help you gain exp and level up fast. Once you level up fast, you will get to modify your character more. This is because each level rewards you with an increase in your stats and a certain amount of the game currency called the Frozen Flame.

Specializations

Specializations

As mentioned earlier, you will have to collect Frozen Flames. This currency is technically skill points. You can use the skill points to choose from the three specializations. You can go to the altar and spin it using the Frozen Flame.

The three specializations that you can choose from are warrior, mage, and archer.

Each specialization will have three active skills and three passive skills.

Building Mechanics

House Building

Lastly is house building. To be able to construct your house, you must first gather enough number of the needed resources such as branches, twigs, stones, and wood.

Once you have already gathered the needed resources, you can start off by laying down the construction core or the base of your house. So make sure that before you plot your construction core, you have already picked a good spot that is flat.

One interesting fact about your construction core is that you can teleport to it. So, one thing you might want to consider doing is building your house beside or near the construction core.
