Haunted Hotels – Vidjagame Apocalypse 440

There’s something inherently eerie about an empty or abandoned hotel – especially if it’s only been abandoned by the living. With Framework‘s Tony Wilson on board for our second week of Spooptober ’21, let’s look at five highly memorable haunted hotels, after which we’ll talk Far Cry 6, Metroid Dread, Hot Wheels Unleashed, the Twitch hack, and your dream Mario-movie casting.

Question of the Week: So who would YOU cast to play Mario and the rest of the Mushroom Kingdom crew?

  1. QotW: I would go with Mighty Max. The miniature play sets would be good inspiration for Captain Toad like levels which make good use of his power (which I think was just teleportation).

    1. This was my answer a̶f̶t̶e̶r̶ ̶W̶a̶r̶h̶a̶m̶m̶e̶r̶. Don’t forget about the DLC crossover opportunities with Polly Pocket.

  2. QOTW: Give me a Furby survival horror game. The premise can be similar to Small Soldiers where a manufacturing mixup or defect causes an entire shipment of Furbies to come alive and try to kill you. You would play a child in the early 2000s locked inside a store after hours with swarms of Furbies everywhere. During the lulls in gameplay, you would occasionally hear the noises and voices the Furbies usually make, and as the game wears on the voices would get lower and slower to simulate their batteries wearing down. Your goal would just be to outlast them.

  3. Inhumanoids, a series that really leaned into the horror aspect of eldrich monsters that once ruled the earth trying to get back control of the planet. If you’d never seen the original toy line the hero scientists figures were only about 6 inches tall compared to the main bad guys who were closer to about 15″ in height and looked pretty terrifying.

    While the original line only had about 3-4 main antagonists, they were pretty hard core stuff, including D’compose, the massive lizard faced monster that could corrupt anything just by touching it, even turning once of the main characters into a zombie in the linked animated series.

    While im feeling quite ‘Dark souls’d out it would lend itself really well to that style of game with your character going through a horrific ruinous landscape fighting massive bosses that truly outclass you and relying more on skill, environment and whatever few supernatural allies you have than physical strength or your heroes weaponry.

  4. I’d like to see a game based on the Gobots toyline. All you’d need to do is make a slightly shittier Transformers game.
