The next free game coming your way later this month is Stories Untold and horror/puzzle fans out there won’t be disappointed.

Stories Untold is a horror adventure-puzzle game developed by No Code and published by Devolver Digital. It released back in February 2017 and has an 81/100 critic score on Metacritic, while Steam reviews are “very positive”.
Check out a story description, features and a trailer for Stories Untold below.
Stories Untold is a narrative-driven experimental adventure game, that bends the genre into something completely unique. Combining a mix of classic text-adventure, point-and-click and more, 4 short stories are packaged together into a single mysterious anthology that has been described as “a fantastic, fascinating example of interactive visual storytelling” and earning widespread critical acclaim since release.
The game pulls together 80s retro nostalgia, innovative and experimental genre-defying gameplay, and tense, psychological horror to create “one of the most fascinating and unique tales you can play this year.”
• Four unique stories, with their own settings, gameplay and mechanics.
• Play mind-bending text adventures, process radio transmissions and conduct experiments on bizarre artifacts
• Gorgeous retro-aesthetic brings back vivid memories, or a glimpse into what was.
• Sublime synth-wave horror soundtrack, inspired by 80s horror soundtracks.
• Achievements to unlock, and narrative secrets to discover
• Genre-hopping: from psychological horror, to tense mystery and terrifying sci-fi; Stories Untold is truly “4 stories, 1 nightmare”
That does sound pretty good and from the trailer that you can view at the bottom of this article, it has that creepy, almost twilight zone vibe to it.
