With October signaling the time of horror, more developers are getting into the dark atmosphere of the season. Indie developer C3SK is teaming up with publisher Devolver Digital to tell its uneasy tale of nightmarish surival with a game called Noct.

Noct is a top-down multiplayer surival game, in which players roam across a post-apocalyptic wasteland, fighting off hellish monsters and just trying to survive long enough to see another day. The twist here is that the entire game is played with the overhead perspective of a thermal satellite, giving it a unique visual look. Players can team up with fellow survivors to explore and help ward off the terrible beasts that threaten to disembowel them, but as is common with this type of survival game, it is entirely possible to turn on your teammates and leave them for dead at a moment's notice.

Noct's dreary visuals will be accompanied by a haunting soundtrack, composed by Nine Inch Nails guitarist Robin Finck and artist Worldclock. Look for the survival horror game to hit PC on October 22, with hands-on time available at this weekend's TwitchCon.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
