Earlier this week we paid a visit to Dr. Terror's Blog of Horrors for a segment entitled “8 Bits From Hell,” in which Dr. Terror worked with artist and graphic designer Frank Browning (already a FEARnet fave for his work on all those horror ice cream flavors) and electronic musician Sean O'Connor to design vintage-style packaging, screenshots, instructions and 8-bit musical themes for imaginary early '90s-era NES games that horror fans would have totally killed to possess.
