Halloween sees the launch of Papa Sangre II, a second version of an audio-only horror game developed UK content creation company Somethin' Else. It takes as its starting point a macabre concept: your own death. The player's goal is to return to the land of the living by exploring an immersive story-world, collecting memories of dead souls to get back to the other side.

The gameplay takes place in audio only; players are guided in the underworld by narrator Sean Bean, star of Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones. Developed on top of a proprietary audio engine (which is available to license) it encompasses all 360 degrees of rotation, allowing sound to be positioned all around the listener's head, including behind, and features over 1,600 individually processed sounds.
