This weird comedy horror game from March went mostly unnoticed

Running for my life down a dim and cluttered hotel hallway, I’m laughing my head off. That’s the experience of The Upturned, a comedy horror game a lot of us missed when it came out on Steam (opens in new tab) back in March.

The Upturned did get some attention—it has over 300 Steam user reviews, most of which are positive, and a few YouTubers played it—but it might’ve received a bigger ovation back in the mid-2010s when offbeat games like Jazzpunk were more novel. (Releasing a month after Elden Ring might not have helped it, either.)
