Excerpt: Survival horror and turn-based RPGs have a lot in common. Both feature engrossing storylines with oodles of cutscenes, and both usually contain somewhat spotty gameplay that’s overlooked when compared to the plot and atmosphere. But who am I to complain? I still love both of these genres, warts and all. That’s why Koudelka , a blend of two of my favorite genres, seemed to be quite promising. To sweeten the deal, the game was developed by ex-Squaresoft staff.
