We’ve all seen our share of horror movies and more often than not, they involve one person chasing the other with some sort of sharp object. “Silhouette”, a free indie game I recently discovered for the PC and Mac, follows that very theme. One person will take on the role of the victim, who must find the key and escape the house while the other controls the killer. Sounds simple, right? Not really. It’s turn based and to top that off, the length in between turns changes depending on the proximity of the two. The closer the two characters are, the faster turns fly by. The game supports two player local play, with both using the keyboard. While there is no online multiplayer option, there are plenty of maps to choose from. You can also have the system randomly generate your own map after choosing the size. It’s a fairly suspenseful game, one that I recommend that you check out if you happen to have another gamer in the house.
