Although Halloween is not coming for one year now, Paradox Interactive consider that there’s no reason not to offer gamers some dark horror games in a pack like no other. I’m talking about the Penumbra Collection which includes the games from the series: Penumbra: Overture and Penumbra: Black Plague together with the expansion pack Requiem.

So, if you didn’t get the chance to play these great games, you can wait until the first quarter of 2009 and give them a shot. You might be surprised to see that you get in return some great puzzles, thrilling experiences and, most important thing: a really scary game experience.

”Our intent with the Penumbra series has always been to focus on fear. We set out to create an experience where the gamer is vulnerable with a sense of discomfort beyond what games in the horror genre typically deliver,” said Thomas Grip, Lead Programmer/Co-founder of Frictional Games.

Yes, we know, it’s not Dead Space, but the games in the Penumbra Collection are slowly becoming cult classics.
