Horror Games and the Art of Betrayal

Designer Mike Selinker—he of Betrayal at House on the Hill, Apocrypha, and Unspeakable Words fame—breaks down how scary videogames and horror tabletop games work on your brain. He’ll show how games like these promise you safety and betray you every time, which is something you shouldn’t want and yet desperately do.
