World of Horror: According to the creator panstasz and the publisher Ysbryd Games, the acclaimed independent video game World of Horror will leave Early Access after three years of play during the summer of 2019.
World of Horror has been under development for quite some time, with the initial release not occurring until February 2020; however, fans have been quite excited about each new update that has been released.
If you haven’t been paying attention to World of Horror yet, you should know that it will likely be one of those games that people will talk about for many years. One of the few games in its genre that combines a stylized look with semi-roguelike survival horror RPG gameplay.
There are currently 9 known games by Xbox first-party projected to launch in 2023, not including unknown titles, Activision Blizzard and expansions.

The gameplay is a blend of horror that’s so odd it’s occasionally silly, with a stylized visual. The most recent update, released at the end of October this year and titled Blood Moon, adds new objects, secrets, and character origins to the procedurally generated horror town.
It promotes itself as a “1-bit love letter to Junji Ito and H.P. Lovecraft” and describes “a horrific rogue-lite universe with turn-based combat and merciless decisions.”
When you zoom out and look at what’s to come in 2023 for Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, and PC, I feel like we’re in for a truly legendary year of gaming.

The fact that the events in the distant Japanese city of Shiokawa are controlled by a deck of event cards that the player can manipulate makes it the most exciting aspect of the game for many people. These cards determine the kind of terrifying occurrences in the city.
2023 is gonna be a good year for gaming 💪

By the way, it is a little bit your job to stop that impending disaster. I repeat: It is a little bit your job. The outcome of the riddle is determined by chance, and each possible effect involves either the world being saved, destroyed, or made somewhat worse.
What are the first 3 2023 games that you’re SUPER excited for? I don’t mean looking forward to. I mean legit STOKED for.
Mine, based on IGN’s currently up-to-date list, are:
-Atomic Heart (2/21)
-Octopath Traveler 2 (2/24)
-Star Wars Jedi Survivor (3/17)https://t.co/mEI3X0rl8R
