Lakeview Cabin Collection - A horror-com sandbox puzzler goes looking for greenlight votes

Roope Tamminen AKA hypnohustler is graduating his flash sandbox, puzzle solving, horror adventure "Lakeview Cabin" into a full blown desktop release and is looking for Greenlight support votes for a group of sequels. The pixel-art style has been given the boot, being replaced with a smooth cartoony vector style, while the scope goes from just a single player character on a small section of lakeside, to taking control of multiple characters a-la Day of the Tentacle across several horror genres and locations, from the original lakeside log cabin to Aliens style in space.

Even in the short trailer it's possible to spot a multitude of tropes and nods to classic horror flicks from Halloween, through Friday the 13th to Alien, with Roope even stating that inspiration comes from those as well as Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Thing and others

If these sequel episodes are as packed full of dark humour and bizarre logic puzzles as the original, then this should prove to be a really interesting title for Steam. It definitely has a very dark edge to it's comedy which makes it a kind of a fusion of McPixel and Day of the Tentacle, and will definitely appeal to fans of horror and dark comedy like Fargo and Chris Morris's Blue Jam and he even has trepidations about how far he's taken the dark humour:
