While THQ Nordic themselves haven’t officially made an announcement about the matter, a Nintendo infographic might have inadvertently revealed that the previously-announced game, “SpongeBob Suarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom: Rehydrated”, is due for a May 2020 release for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and XBox One.

Two characters from the first film, Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) run off to go their separate ways, but when a new, durable type of super zombie (nicknamed the T-800) surfaces, the remainders must chase after them to save them.

The horror genre and video gaming have always had a finnicky relationship. On paper, directly involving the player in a horror story might seem to be a great way to give them a good, memorable, thrilling and scary experience, this doesn’t always work in practice. This has been evidenced time and time again by numerous terrible Resident Evil video games, and a lot of other attempts- such as Call of Duty’s famous Zombies mode- have given up on trying to scare the player altogether- preferring a more action packed, intricate plot to simply trying to scare the player.
In lieu of this, Behavior Entertainment’s Dead by Daylight is a refreshing, fun, and unique game. Continue reading “Dead by Daylight- a good, cheap, way to ‘kill’ time”
