Shinji Mikami, creator of the Resident Evil series decided to spread his horror wing to more games. He’s worked on other horror games other than Resident Evil before but none as visually disturbing as The Evil Within. Channeling the feel of Resident Evil 4, The Evil Within aims to be a scarier and more serious kind of horror experience. Does Shinji Mikami and Tango Gameworks have what it takes to make a truly terrifying experience?
FanExpo Canada is happening this weekend in Toronto. I didn’t look at too many game related things on Friday due to shopping for comic books and art work. I was walking around the game section scouting the booth’s and I then I saw that there was a playable demo for The Evil Within. When I stepped in the line I was the third one in and this was in the afternoon too.
For the uninformed, The Evil Within is a new survival horror game IP by Shinji Mikami, the creator of Resident Evil. Personally I don’t know much about the game or its premise so I’ll go through what I played in the demo.
