As it gears up for its October release, indie game Infliction is picked out in Australia’s Pax showcase
Infliction is a horror game that’s a little different to the others out there on the market. It finds you in a family home, frighteningly realised through the latest Unreal engine. But the family tragedy has already happened. You are there simply to pick apart the pieces, trying to figure out what happened.
