Psychological Horror Game Silver Chains Now Out on Xbox Series X|S
You play as Peter, our hapless protagonist who had the bad sense to crash his car outside of the spookiest mansion he could find. Instead of just calling roadside assistance or doing anything other than, I don’t know, seeking shelter in an obvious horror mansion, Peter makes his way inside. If you thought that could just warm up, dry off, and then turn around and walk out the second you saw the dangling baby doll room, then I have some really bad news for you.
Turns out, you’re stuck inside. Good thing you’re the only one walking around the mansion and dodging creepy babies, right? Well, about that: turns out there might be an evil, lurking presence that’s haunting you. What’s more, you might have some previous connection to the place that you’ve since forgotten about, probably because you hit your head pretty hard when you crashed your car. So you’re going to need to figure out what’s going on, on top of all the running and hiding you’ll be doing. Good luck with that!
