To say we’re excited for Shinji Mikami’s new horror-themed game The Evil Within would be an understatement. From what we’ve seen so far the man who created survival horror with Resident Evil is overseeing its rebirth with his new game, developed by Mikami’s Tango Gameworks and published by Bethesda Softworks.
The Evil Within follows Detective Sebastian Castellanos as he investigates the scene of a gruesome mass murder. His fellow officers are slaughtered in an ambush and he is knocked out cold. Castellanos awakens to the realization that he must escape unimaginable terror by making use of his environment to fight for his survival.
The fact that the game’s Oct. 14 release date is just two days after the premiere of The Walking Dead season five and the same month as Halloween is icing on the spooky cake. So we’re celebrating with a meme contest, and among the prizes are two copies of The Evil Within autographed by the horror-master himself, Shinji Mikami.
