Dread of Laughter is a survival horror game from Icy North Games, where the player has to survive the attack of a serial killer by making choices that will either help the player or make the killer stronger.
You play as Catheryn Barnett. On your way to see your parents your car dies down and you decide to cut through the forest to the town. You think you know the way but it gets dark really quickly and you don’t know where you are until you find a farm thinking you can call for help but soon you realize you are being hunted by someone or something.
Your objective is to survive the attack of a serial killer who is lurking around the house trying to get to you as well as completing objectives that will either help you or the killer. Some objectives will make the killer stronger and therefore make the game harder, and some will make it easier for the player. All the objectives are randomly generated so you will never know which one will help you.
There is multiple ways to beat the game as well as multiple ways to get killed. Every decision you make has to be made with care as you never know what the killer has in store for you. If you get stuck in the game, check out the video walkthrough and gameplay for the game.
