We Produced a Videogame in Quarantine DREAD X Collection Is Now Available on Steam for PC

DREAD X Collection Now Available on Steam for PC

Horror, at its core, is primal. You don’t need a multi-million dollar design budget or advanced realtime bullet physics to make something scary. You just have to have an idea that is raw, and the honesty to execute it.

That was the challenge Ted Hentschke of DreadXP posed to 10 brilliant creators. With nothing but 7 days and their imaginations make a playable teaser for the horror project of their dreams. Both a game on its own, and a window into a much larger world. Make it raw. Make it real. Make it a reflection of your own fears. Make it in just 7 days.

And so they did. This is the Dread X CollectionNow available on Steam!

Partial Proceeds Go To Charity: Given these trying times, we all decided it would be best to donate a portion of the profits to charity. $2 USD (2/7 of purchase price) of every retail purchase (proportional for sales) will go to Doctors Without Borders.

Included in Dread X Collection are games by Airdorf, Lovely Hellplace, Mahelyk (Kyle Frost), Oddbreeze, Scythe Dev Team, SecretCowLevel, Snowrunner Games, Strange Scaffold, David Szymanski, and Torple Dook.

IN THE KEEP catches up with Ted Hentschke, long-time writer for Dread Central and now editor-in-chief at DreadXP, where he discusses the DREAD X Collection.
