Welcome to Digital Nightmares, where one lucky host gets to choose their nightmare. Each month one of us is the victim, and the other three will be killers. The killers play and bring a nightmare, a recent-ish horror game created in the last several years. The killer must explain the game and convince the victim in five minutes to play it without saying the title. After everyone has gone, the victim chooses a nightmare, and the winning killer gets a point, and in the next episode, we play the winning game.
