This weird horror-comedy game from March went mostly unnoticed

Running for my life down a dim and cluttered hotel hallway, I burst out laughing. This is the experience of The Upturned, a comedy horror game that many missed when it launched on Steam (opens in new tab) back in March.

Upturned got attention – it has over 300 Steam user reviews, most of them positive, and a few YouTubers have played it – but it might have received more applause in the mid-2010s, when offbeat games like Jazzpunk were more novel. (Releasing a month after Elden Ring might not have helped.)
