Recommended Horror Games

Recommendations by E.K.

My horror preference is literary with a strong atmosphere, so those types of games will make a stronger showing here than splatterfests, but I have an affection for some of those too. List currently in progress.

1. Anchorhead
by Michael Gentry
(1998)
Average member rating: (275 ratings)

E.K. says:

The classic of the genre. If you haven't played this, you're missing out.

2. Slouching Towards Bedlam
by Star Foster and Daniel Ravipinto
(2003)
Average member rating: (161 ratings)

E.K. says:

As the title indicates, this disturbing piece is set in an old mental asylum. A fantastic work with multiple endings and a steampunk feel that doesn't detract from the horror.

3. The King of Shreds and Patches
by Jimmy Maher
(2009)
Average member rating: (58 ratings)

E.K. says:

A well-written, large world, of mystery and spookiness.

4. Lydia's Heart
by Jim Aikin
(2007)
Average member rating: (23 ratings)

E.K. says:

Perhaps not truly 'horror', but a very accomplished supernatural story.

5. Divis Mortis
by Lynnea Dally
(2010)
Average member rating: (29 ratings)

E.K. says:

You awake in a hospital to find the zombie apocalypse. Excellent writing, good puzzles.

6. Leadlight
by Wade Clarke
(2010)
Average member rating: (30 ratings)

E.K. says:

Teen boarding school horror romp with a retro gimmick.

7. Strange Geometries, by Phillip Chambers (2006)
Average member rating: (17 ratings)
E.K. says:

More Lovecraft influence in this small-town occult game. Well-written but parser not as fluid as it could be.

8. A Killer Headache
by Mike Ciul
(2012)
Average member rating: (17 ratings)

E.K. says:

A fun zombie game, relatively short but with strong puzzles.

9. Dead Reckoning, by David Whyld (2003)
Average member rating: (4 ratings)
E.K. says:

Flawed, and you'll die a lot, but a good horror puzzler.

10. Baluthar
by Chris Molloy Wischer
(2003)
Average member rating: (17 ratings)

E.K. says:

Shortish, not that scary, but worth a play-through.
