Return to the chaos and comfort of Crawl

Crawl is a multiplayer horror game like no other. You and three other forsaken souls have been cast into the depths of a sinister catacomb where you'll need to battle for survival. Sounds like a classic dungeon crawler, but there's a twist—you all take turns controlling the attacking monsters.

Australian indie studio, Powerhoof, spent three years developing Crawl in early access before its full release in April 2017, and years later it continues to be one of the best horror party games on PC. 

In the video above, Graeme takes a look back at the unique terror of Crawl, exploring what it does well, where it falls short, and trying not to die in the process.

Rachel had been bouncing around different gaming websites as a freelancer and staff writer for three years before settling at PC Gamer back in 2019. She mainly writes reviews, previews, and features, but on rare occasions will switch it up with news and guides. When she's not taking hundreds of screenshots of the latest indie darling, you can find her nurturing her parsnip empire in Stardew Valley and planning an axolotl uprising in Minecraft. She loves 'stop and smell the roses' games—her proudest gaming moment being the one time she kept her virtual potted plants alive for over a year.
