Ghastly multiplication: Fatal Frame II and the Videogame Uncanny

Laura Hoeger, William Huber

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Through a close-play and close reading of the game Fatal Frame II, we identify the uniquely game-based aspects of the uncanny in a horror game. Subsequently, we engage in an interpretation of the game which centers on a psychoanalytic model of the avatar and theories of the twin.
