    Metro 2033 - Survival Horror / FPS - 16/MAR/2010 - 4A Games/THQ - Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows
    - Based on Dimitry Glukhovsky's novel of the same name.
    - Game features a post-apocalyptic Moscow where people survive inside the metro's tunnels, since outdoors are uninhabitable because of radiation and mutated creatures.
    - Story's outcome changes according to the player's actions.
    - Use of ammo as currency forces the player to decide whether to use it to beat tougher creatures or spend it for superior weaponry.
    - Light plays a great role because of the game's setting (mostly indoors), and it's used to create immersion and rise tension.

    Hope this complies with this thread's rules, I just finished this game and I thought it was worth posting, considering it's fairly recent.

    Amended the topic to include D, Koudelka, Metro 2033 and VIRUS: It is aware.

    I've also included the official release date for Dead Space 2, along with the assorted bonuses that the game comes with.

    Yeah, I was just thinking about that. I'll get round to adding it at some point, along with the games mentioned earlier in the thread.

    Curse: The Eye Of Isis - Horror/Adventure - 21/OCT/2003 - DreamCatcher Interactive - PC, PS2, Xbox

    It's a little rough around the edges but the game mechanics is similar to old horror adventure games, actually this is as old school as it gets. //Kim

    I just checked it out on YouTube. It looks interesting. Similar to Resident Evil. I don't understand why they don't make games like this anymore.

    But you can bet that tomorrow you'll get another First Person Shooter game. >_>

    I'm surprised these still haven't been mentioned considering that Suda51 was also involved in these ones.

    Twilight Syndrome ~ Omen: Search (トワイライトシンドローム: 探索篇) - Adventure Horror - 01/MAR/1996 - Human Entertainment PSX
    Twilight Syndrome: Investigations (トワイライトシンドロム:探索編 - Adventure Horror - 19/JUL/1996 - Human Entertainment PSX
    Moonlight Syndrome (ムーンライトシンドローム) - Adventure Horror - 09/OCT-1997 - Human Entertainment PSX
    Twilight Syndrome Special (トワイライトシンドロム 特別) - Adventure Horror - 02/JUL/1998 - Club Human/Human Entertainment - PSX
    Twilight Syndrome: Reunion (トワイライトシンドロム 酒井) Adventure Horror - 27/JUL/2000 Spike PSX

    - All only released in Japan.

    He wasn't involved in Reunion off the top of my head. All of them were released in Japan only on the PlayStation.

    Overall the games are that the students in the schools like to meddle with the supernatural and are gifted with what they refer to as the "Twilight Syndrome" so they can see, hear and speak with the dead.

    Which results in talking to spirits in order to find information to continue the games, and you can also take photos of spirits around the schools.

    Each chapter of the games are split up into sections called "Rumors" regarding the spirits and in one of the games, the truth behind the Twilight Syndrome.

    The games have multiple characters and endings ranging from good, normal to bad endings which result in the death of the characters or they can inch close to the truth behind it all. However, a good or normal ending is required in order to proceed to the next chapter within the game.

    A character in Twilight Syndrome looks rather similar to Jennifer Simpson from the Clock Tower games, to the point during the intro of Twilight Syndrome Reunion there's a small section of this character running in the same outfit Jennifer has in Clock Tower 2/Clock Tower US.

    Moonlight Syndrome is a bit trippy during it's intro to the point it even mentions LSD oddly enough (could explain some of Suda's games)...

    Mizzurna Falls: Country of the Woods and Repose (ミザーナフォールズ) - Adventure Horror - 23/DEC/98 - Human Entertainment PSX
    - Only released in Japan
    - Takes place in a town at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado called "Mizzurna Falls"
    - Free-roaming game, player has access to all areas of the town. Player can also drive a Volkswagen (which can also run out of fuel).

    A girl is found injured/killed on the outskirts of town by what the police assume was a bear attack and the main playable character is best friends with her. He gets called in by the police and is questioned. In the mean time, another high school girl goes missing and the police are looking for her, but it being around Christmas time there isn't much the police can actually do.

    The outskirts of town are called the Ballow Woods, but it's said in-game as Barrow Woods. Bit of a throw-back to Clock Tower. Another reference would be Father Burton whom is called "Father Barton" when initially introduced but all other name points for him are as Burton, so that would be a reference to Professor Barton from Clock Tower 2 (Clock Tower US/EU).

    There's a date/time system in place in the game, somewhat similar as to what Shenmue had later on (as this was released quite a while before it) and everything is more or less in a scheduled routine in-game. Cars and the like may look randomly placed, but you'll actually see characters going back and forth to them and their homes at certain times.

    Let's say the neighbor finishes work at 5p.m. They would arrive around 5:30pm. and if around the area you can see them park their car, exit and go into their house. Let's say the player goes to the house at 4:30p.m. and knocks on the door. No answer. Try again at 6:00 p.m. and the door opens up, as the person is now home.

    So the main character has to go around town and collect information to find out how his friend has died and to find his other missing friend.

    Off the top of my head, he wrote and directed -

    Twilight Syndrome: Search
    Twilight Syndrome: Investigation
    Moonlight Syndrome
    Twilight Syndrome Special

    Twilight Syndrome: Resume (or Reunion as some people call it) was done after Human folded and the staff split into Nude Maker, Spike (which continued Twilight Syndrome) and Suda formed Grasshopper Manufacture with some other former members of Human Entertainment.

    As far as I'm aware Resume/Reunion seems to be approved by Suda despite his lack of involvement with the staff in Spike working on them and the films of the same name.

    I believe there's also a book on Killer7 that mentions the scrapped version of the it (Killer7) which was supposed to have some sort of connection to Twilight, Moonlight Syndrome (Moonlight being the alternative storyline to Twiligt) which was going to explain stuff between both lots of games.

    Though I know he was involved in the development of them more than just writing, directing and the like. It's just that overall a lot of the Human Entertainment games haven't had many translations done so it's a pain to really find anything on them properly, because of that I'm probably going to include them on my site just so the information finally comes out regarding them.

    Also, updated the Mizzurna Falls bit with the correct katakana as used on the game's title itself.

    Sorry about this double-post but another couple of titles to add to the list -

    Nightmare Creatures - Survival Horror/Platform/Adventure - SEP/30/1997 - Kalisto Entertainment/Activision - PS1, PC, N64
    Nightmare Creatures II - Survival Horror/Platform/Adventure - APR/29/2000 - Kalisto Entertainment/Activision & Konami - PS1, DreamCast

    There was to be a third one, but Ubisoft obtained the rights to it and Kalisto Entertainment went out of business and it just never happened.

    I just bought the first one, along with a few other bundled PS1 games. Must give it a proper shot...I loved the demo when I was young.

    And double posts are fine in this thread, so long as they're relevant.

    Ah, nice! Well, I remember playing a little bit of it but I never got to complete it.

    I forgot to add them to my post when I mentioned the Syndrome games and only remembered today.

    And cool, thanks DM.

    Hey, gotta build up my 'cool' credits before I do something to be labeled a massive Nazi who runs the site as his own personal playpen with all these stupid rules that I dare to make people obey.

    ...again.

    Nightmare Creatures, from what I remember, was more of a horror themed action game than full survival horror game, but it does involve slicing zombies apart limb from limb with a razor staff. It's hard to object to de-limbing.

    Yeah, though all of the things actually listed it's genre as a survival horror one so I just wrote down what it was marked as.

    And I also would have to add in for the original Clock Tower piece, is that I can't recommend the hacked SNES fan translation as I was looking at my Win95 PC version and there's complete differences to the original text and what looks like complete lines of text were omitted from things, such as an important plot-related item to get the hidden ending.

    I'm not even 100% fluent in Japanese (it's the kanji that stuff me up, but I'm getting there) but there were names and the like when they weren't even mentioned by particular characters, character icons in the opening of the game are also the incorrect ones with the characters talking and that the hacked SNES one also has issues such as broken background sections (namely within the first bathroom, the entire thing flashes and glitches out completely OR it also crashes on a staircase in the second foyer).

    I'd be more than happy to post up a transcript or even footage I've captured to back this up as to why I have an issue on using that particular translation patch.

    An example would be -

    Fan translation:

    Mary - I gotta go get Mr. Barrows.

    Original text that I roughly translated it to -

    Mary - Seeing as he isn't here, as your teacher/instructor, I'll go and meet the master/owner of the mansion. (Note that Barrows isn't actually named by Mary, but actually by Ann when Mary leaves).

    I know it's fine for most people, it just bugs me to see that there's sections actually missing from it. DX

    Resident Evil 2 also had a Dual Shock Version which allowed you to cheat with infinite ammo ;)
