Scott Millard, CEO of Feardemic said about Fear Fest: “We created this event in 2022 as a tribute to our horror community, and it turned out to be a huge success. We were amazed by the enthusiasm and support from the developers, content creators, and fans.
“This year we wanted to make this event even better and more valuable for horror fans, so we decided to have two nights of horror: one to whet our appetites for the games coming soon and one to celebrate the games of the past year.
“And of course, IGN was the natural partner for Fear Fest and we are so excited to be working with them on this project.”
The first day of Fear Fest 2023 on September 6, 2023, and kicking off the celebration will be BLACK SUMMER.

“Feardemics’ dedication to creating an entire event around horror games is a statement to the genre’s power to impress and inspire and a love letter to the community that has formed around it.
“Through these games, we can confront our own psyche, push ourselves to our limits, and discover that we are capable of more than we ever imagined.
“It’s fantastic to be part of an event that recognizes content creators’ important contribution to the horror games industry, whilst at the same time we can also support the developers that make games that keep our channels exciting.”
