Typically, only severe head trauma puts a stop to their shambling. Rebellion’s Zombie Nazi Army series has demonstrated a similar type of imperviousness. A trio of titles tasked players with gunning down legions of a resurrected ...

That was the case for the 2005 release of Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath, an imaginative effort that blended third and first-person action in a setting that tweaked Western tropes.

But that enduring adage get challenged in Graze Counter, Hyogo-based Henteko Doujin’s absorbing sophomore PC release.

After visiting a obake yashiki (or ‘ghost house’) in Japan, known as the Daiba Haunted School, I quickly realized that fright could have remarkably divergent forms. Far removed from the hazily-themed succession of jump-scares that I was used to, the Tokyo ...
