Though it’s not widely considered to be a survival horror game, I argue that Killer7 absolutely qualifies as an entry in the genre. Its vaguely political story boils down to some very disorienting psychological trauma. The moment to moment play is laced with paranoia, leavened by hyper stylized visuals, and compromised by archaic and unnecessary puzzles.
That’s a survival horror game. Even before you get to the fact that you’re fighting zombies and monsters.
The PC port of this game, release recently, isn’t that great, so the first episode is dogged by some harsh adjustment. Also, the first two parts have me dealing with some bad connection issues, but I think I got those worked out.
