A horror game that can nail an authentic sense of place will always achieve the ultimate goal, of scaring the living fudge out of the player. Still Wakes The Deep really manages to bring to life the isolation of working on a 1970s oil rig, and then it carves it up, bends it, turns it inside out and spits it back. Because if working on a North Sea rig in the age of analogue wasn’t dangerous releasing a cosmic horror just made things much, much harder.
