Next, for the Switch comes Outlast 2, a port of last year’s intense horror game that gave people legit panic attacks. Players attempt to survive as a pair of investigative journalists on the trail of a dastardly cult living deep in the Arizona desert. Available March 27.

OPUS: Rocket of Whispers is an emotionally-driven adventure game in which you must explore a snowy, post-apocalyptic wilderness. Your goal is to build a rocket ship in order to “return the deceased to their cosmic homeland through the ancient tradition of space burials.” I didn’t realize that space burial was an option, but now that I do, I’m 100% on board with it. Available March 22.
