When it comes to survival horror games, the past decade has not been so kind to the failing genre. Generally the larger, triple A titles have been lackluster, with big survival horror franchises Silent Hill and Resident Evil heading in a more “action” style of gameplay. Middle of Nowhere seems to learn from the mistakes of its predecessor, doing its part to help push the survival horror genre back to the forefront of gaming. Here are some screenshots and artwork from VisionArts:
