Choo-Choo Charles

In the last period there has been talk of a great return of the horror genre in video games. In addition to the big and upcoming triple A projects like The Callisto Protocol or Dead Space Remake, there are also a whole host of indie titles to definitely keep an eye on. One of these is undoubtedly the curious Choo-Choo Charles, a new open world horror game that has made a lot of talk about itself, where players will have to contend with a monstrous spider-shaped train; a sort of Thomas train of horror.

The game was announced a little quietly a few months ago, but after a series of updates finally the development team has announced the launch date. Choo-Choo Charles would be a perfect game to play in this Halloween period (you can buy some decorations on Amazon), but unfortunately there will be a few more months to wait before discovering the secrets of this horror title.| ); } As you can see in the new trailer released on YouTube by the development team, Choo-Choo Charles will see the light on December 9, 2022. The game will be available exclusively on PC via Steam, where the horror already features an official page with all the details revealed so far, movies and screenshots. In all of this, the possibility of pre-ordering the game is still missing, but it is very likely that before December 9th there will be time to secure this very special horror experience.

Upcoming survival-horror game Choo-Choo Charles has received a release date, which was revealed in a new gameplay trailer. Choo-Choo Charles was teased this summer during the Day of the Devs portion of Summer Game Fest 2022. In a unique spin on the scary genre, the game has a train-centric focus, and is sure to provide lots of unique scares when it comes out later this year.

Choo-Choo Charles comes from indie developer Two Star Games, and draws inspiration from the Stephen King novel Charlie the Choo-Choo. The open-world survival game centers on players improving a train, through various upgrades and equipment, in order to take down the terrifying spider-train hybrid known as Charles. Players will need to travel around the world to gather materials and make allies in what seems to be a fairly linear horror narrative, culminating in the ultimate showdown with Charles. While the game contains some elements of realism, its scary slant sets it apart from simulation games that are more realistic like Microsoft Flight Simulator or Train Simulator.

A new trailer for Choo-Choo Charles has revealed a release date for the game. It also gives players a better idea of what they can expect, showing off brand-new footage of the title. The video shared by the Two Star YouTube channel shows a mix of train travel, material collection and combat with Choo-Choo Charles himself, while also revealing more about the game's story. In the trailer, the main character is shown navigating to a quest called 'North Mine Mystery' to retrieve a 'monster egg,' foreshadowing that the game has horror that goes beyond Charles as well. Choo-Choo Charles is set to release for PC on Steam December 9.

Over the years, survival horror video games have become an increasingly popular genre. With more and more of them seemingly hitting the market each year, it's important for new titles to set themselves apart, and Choo-Choo Charles certainly succeeds at that. The game's train focus is unique by itself, and coupled with the extremely terrifying design of the arachnid-style, evil, sentient train, the game is instantly memorable. Charles is absolutely the stuff of nightmares, and this new look at the game's universe solidifies just how delightfully horrifying it will hopefully be for players.

The gameplay combination seems like an excellent balance between survival elements like crafting and gathering materials and more fast-paced, combat-driven moments. Charles certainly has the potential to become an antagonist as iconic as Super Mario's Bowser, with the way his combat scenes likely struck visceral fear in most viewers. There's still a lot more for players to learn about Choo-Choo Charles, which is sure to give players a good scare when it releases later this year.
