DreadXP has revealed two new horror titles at The MIX Next 2022 that are to be added to their ever-growing list of indie horror games. Amanda the Adventurer and [I] doesn’t exist are the latest and greatest headed to gamers in the near future, and they sound to be nightmare-inducing.
We learned that gamers won't have to wait very long to experience these two new horror additions, as DreadXP states they are already in development and scheduled to release in 2023 on PC. Amanda the Adventurer is said to be a found-footage style horror game, where players get the feeling that the game is a run-of-the-mill adventure game. Players start off just rummaging through their attic, where they stumble across a box of old VHS tapes of the show "Amanda the Adventurer", which almost reminds us of Dora the Explorer.
As the VHS tapes begin to play, players will listen to Amanda and her extremely creepy sheep sidekick Woolie talk about what they see and what the player should click on next. One word of advice, do not go against what Amanda directs you to do. Next up was [I] doesn’t exist, which the devs described as a "one-of-a-kind combination of trance-like visuals and text-based narrative design." The aim of the game is to solve various trippy-looking puzzles, meet and speak to a cute little mushroom person, and give commands to the in-game AI. That is when things start to go awry, and players realize there is more to this narrative than they once thought.
While there are no set dates for the titles as of yet, we are excited to see what they bring to the table. Given DreadXP's horror reputation in the gaming industry, we assume these will be a screaming good time. More so, DreadXP has brought in several other indie developers to help them create these two titles, such as LUAL Games and MANGLEDmaw Games. They did so to promote more indie developers that may not have the funding or tools at their disposal to bring their games to life and decided that helping them publish these next titles is a great way for their dreams to come true.
