Ultra-Indie Daily Dose: Explore A Perfectly Normal Mansion In Husk
Hello, you glorious gluttons for all things indie horror! Are you just starving for the newest of the new, the most unknownest of the unknown? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Welcome to the Ultra-Indie Daily Dose! In this series, we’re going to pick a new game every day from an indie horror creator you’ve probably never heard of. No million-dollar budgets or factory productions. This is the space for the little guy with not but a developer toolkit and a dream. So if you’re down to roll the dice on something different, then stick around and check it out!
Welcome back for another Ultra-Indie Daily Dose! Today we have Husk by developer Michael Wolf. You play as the happy new owner of a mysterious and creepy abandoned home. The realtor insists that you scrub away the pentagrams, box up the candles, and flip the upside-down crucifixes before you sell the house. Of course, once you arrive, you realize these are the least of your demonic worries.
It was originally created for a game jam, and thankfully continued after into a complete game. Husk is of the traditional stuck-in-a-house-with-a-freak genre, though expertly done and with some interesting artistic choices to boot. With good gameplay, terrifying atmosphere, and even some nice drawn art for some of the “cutscenes,” Husk is an all around solid spooky house horror.
