The creators of Immortality will be working on Project C. There’s also a Stardew Valleyesque farming sim where one of the townsfolk is a serial killer, Grave Seasons. Fear The Spotlight is a game made by a husband and wife about two teenage girls and a seance gone wrong.

Then there’s Crisol: Theater Of Idols, a game where you’ll fight possessed statues in Spain. There’s also Sleep Awake, a first-person psychedelic game where people disappear in their sleep, so everyone is trying to stay away. And, finally, The Simulation, a meta murder mystery and a game within a game.

Some of the Blumhouse Games team spoke with The Guardian to explain how they’d be running their new venture. “It’s a pretty conservative business model,” said Blumhouse Games president Zach Wood

“We don’t need everything to be a hit. Everybody can make money at a moderate success level, and that’s really important for us, especially given market conditions. We want to make a profit for everybody that we work with. It’s important that our development partners have a sustainable business, and can continue making games.”

Creative lead Lousie Blain added: “We were looking for an innovative approach to horror, something we haven’t seen before There’s no prerequisite, we’re just taking what’s interesting.

“I’ve been a big lover of Blumhouse for a very long time, and so many of my favourite Blumhouse movies come from limitations – something like Paranormal Activity, smaller projects that were doing cool things. And when you transfer that over to games, it means taking different approaches to scary stories.”
