First Look at 80’s Inspired Slasher Game ‘Sanitarium Massacre’

Chris Savage

I don’t tend to post much when it comes to video games as over the past several years I’ve become a little detached from the world of gaming, but something is coming that has caught my eye and I think some of you will love it! However, don’t go in expecting state-of-the-art graphics and stuff, this is gritty and old-school, just the way I like it. I present to you Sanitarium Massacre.

Synopsis: “Neokalus Burr, a notorious serial killer, is caught in a violent and deadly home invasion. Shot nearly to death by the police, he is locked away in a state hospital for the mentally ill. Tonight, after 8 mute years staring at a wall, he escapes from his cell on a campaign of destruction and terror. It is almost as if he is possessed by a demon, You are that demon. Rip through the halls of the sanitarium committing shocking acts of violence. No one will be safe. You will kill them all in Sanitarium Massacre.”

Features include:

  • Terrifying masks and costumes
  • Old school Resident Evil/Silent Hill style cameras
  • Realistic decapitations and gore: Different deaths for each weapon
  • VHS box menus, stats and rankings: Menus look like an old VHS box. If you’re wondering about the washed out grainy look of the newer videos, there are two video modes made – VHS and DVD. DVD will be clear video; but if you want to go old school, flip on VHS mode, and the game will look like a dirty old tape with scan lines and everything.

I for one am totally stoked for this one, if you too like the look of this, make your way over to their official website for all the information.

        Looks interesting, but not something I’d pay for. Many other good horror games out there.
