If you aren’t sure who Greg Nicotero is, Gun’s description should give you an idea.
”Greg Nicotero is an icon of horror and a master of his craft, making his first foray into the gaming industry with his collaboration with Gun and Sumo. Starting his journey as a special makeup effects artist on Day of the Dead, Nicotero has brought to life true terror and realism throughout his influential career. He has not only dominated but also innovated and pushed the horror genre into a realm of realism where his work sticks with you long after a film has faded to black.”
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is an asymmetrical multiplayer game that sees 3 members of the family against 4 survivors. Set up as a prequel to the 1974 movie of the same name, it features the same deranged family and locations, but with a fresh set of potential victims and even new family members.
It was reviewed favorably when it was released last month, with many finding it to be a breath of fresh air in the multiplayer horror space.
