Annie’s recommendations - Week 6: Horror stories

I’ve seen quite a few threads like this so I thought I would make mine if anyone is interested lol. I almost made @JemU776 to join, but then I saw how many gift shops she already has, so I told her to sit this one out, but she still made the above edit, so yeah :joy: :two_hearts:

Some of you know that I prefer reading stories with less reads, because I figured that the trending ones don’t need my support, but hidden gems are called hidden for a reason, hence I’m making this thread.
What I’m planning to do is read stories from specific genres, then share a few thoughts and screenshots of my favourites weekly/monthly, depending on the amount.

This week I’m looking for Horror stories. Feel free to share your own work, or any underrated gems you like in this genre!

Stories I recommend:

Remnant Past
AW: Elisus veritas
The Wrong Match
Bad Behavior
SOLO

Important note: I choose one story each week. If it’s not yours, that doesn’t mean it’s bad, or I didn’t like it.

All right, I’m back :upside_down_face:

My favourite from last week was:
Story title: Remnant Past
Author: @Madhu
Genre: Action
Style: Limelight
Link: http://episodeinteractive.com/s/4667930276331520

I enjoyed the first two episodes, the only thing I missed was a little more action, but then it arrived in episode 3. I was glad to see that the MC is a strong character, but she is nice and caring at the same time. I think you did a really good job with helping the reader understand her motivations.

My guess is that there are at least two love interests in the story, but I liked that the story is not only focusing on them, but on the MC’s friends and family too. This is something I don’t often see in Episode stories (especially the family part).

The directing is pretty good, I really liked the backgrounds and the attention you put on the details. I have to admit that I’m not a fan of art scenes, but they were nicely done so I even chose one as my favourite screenshot.

My recommendation for this week:

Story title: AW: Elisus veritas
Author: @illustrated.episode
Genre: Adventure
Style: Limelight
Link: http://episodeinteractive.com/r/s/6610776308908032

Great story, it would be a good fit for sci-fi genre, if we had one.
First thing I have to mention is how well-written your characters are. Like, all of them. Bonus point for the male MC, and for the fact that we get to choose whether we want to go the romance route or not.

Also, I love your writing. It might sound a little weird, but I had to stop and reread some of your sentences, because I was impressed by the way you worded them. This combined with your directing made me think that you were doing a really great job with building the tension.

The plot was intriguing, the mini-games were fun… You know what? You actually did a great job with everything, so I will just go and add this to my recommendation list.

Thanks for the recommendation @Baleigh_episode :blush:
