Concrete Tremor is an unsettling experimental horror game where you play Battleships by blowing up apartment blocks with people inside them.
Created by Mike Klubnika (creator of Control Room Alpha and Carbon Steel), Concrete Tremor is a horror game told from multiple perspectives, where you play Battleships with Soviet era apartment blocks. The actual game plays pretty similarly to Battleships, with you taking it in turns to select five plots of land to blow up and the game marking the hits and misses as you go.
You never actually get to see any of the carnage your attacks do, but you do watch on as your buildings (with hundreds of people inside) are blown up in front of you. More unsettlingly than that, if your rival misses with five attacks in a row then you can call one of the apartment blocks and trick them into giving away their location.
It’s a remarkably dark premise that takes a classic family game and sees you using it to commit mass genocide. As with Mike Klubnika’s other games, the world building is fantastic and the core concept delves into the darkest recesses of humanity. The fact that you see the game through different characters’ perspectives makes things a whole lot more personal too. Highly recommended.
