Spooky month is near so I started playing spooky games like what you will be watching right now. This game is called Devour.

DEVOUR certainly feels like a unique take on the co-op horror genre. The genre stems from games in which you have an active mission - you killed zombies, for example, or fought against monsters. DEVOUR isn't about that, though; DEVOUR is simply about survival. Sharing a fair bit of DNA with games like Phasmophobia or even Five Nights at Freddy's, the game is more about trying to endure horrors than actively fighting back against them.

DEVOUR revolves around a demonic cult known as The Watchers of Azazel. While performing a summoning spell, your cult leader becomes possessed by the demon goat god, Azazel. As an ex-cult member, either solo or in a co-op team of 4, exorcise the demon from Anna before "she" kills you. 

In this game the players on your co-op team make or break the game's experience. The gameplay loop is the same every time you play - light the fire, find the goats and try not to die before you complete your sacrifices. If you have a good team, that process will be a lot of fun. However, if you don't have a good team, though, the game can feel incredibly frustrating.

Part of this comes down to the basic design of the game. You're trying to survive here, not win. You don't get a chance to fight back against Anna. The best you can hope to do is to slow her down for a moment, but even that is hit or miss. If you can't coordinate well enough with your team, you will be a victim more often than not.
