Forget jumpscares, this horror game gets under your skin

How do you create a successful horror game without relying on jump scares, tons of gore, or most of the usual tropes associated with the genre? You make a world that is decidedly off kilter, confusing and strangely awful. That's what Ape Law did with Albino Lullaby, and it worked.

Watch us play through the game's early sequences, twisting through its puzzle box environments, encountering freaky messages and finding out the truth about its queasy characters.

Albino Lullaby is available now on Steam for Windows PC.

Note: in the video, we incorrectly mentioned that the game was available for Mac and Linux. The current release is for PC only.
