Inspired to create a different kind of 2D sidescrolling horror outside of the styles of Home and Lone Survivor, Cameron Kunzelman has created Catachresis, an “intense horror/comedy mashup influenced equally by Hugo’s House of Horrors, Ghostbusters, Shirley Jackson, Event Horizon, the comics work of Mike Mignola, and Julia Kristeva.”
All sorts of unholy creatures are converging on this night, in what is called a “tier zero event,” and it’s up to you to figure out why, what your connection is, and how to stop it. If at any moment the tension becomes too much to bear, the developer was kind enough to allow you to save your state (with “S”) and reload (with “L”) at a later time.
You can play Catachresis for free via your browser. For more free games from Cameron Kunzelman, check out his collection.
