What’s scarier than a Necromorph? Why, a Necromorph kid, of course!

In all seriousness, if you’re a game developer reading this and you’re wondering how to make your creations even more horrifying, just twist your enemy designs into small, child-like whippersnappers and — voilà! — you’ve instantly made your game ten times way creepier.

Affectionately referred to as ‘The Pack’, these bipedal alien-demon-children don’t give a f#$% about Isaac Clarke and his limb-dissecting quest to stop the evil cult dubbed The Church of Unitology.

Snarling, ferocious, and unrelentingly bloodthirsty, these feral beasties attack in huge numbers and are terrifying enough to give all you seasoned babysitters out there a bout of violent PTSD flashbacks.
