1. Theatre, by Brendon Wyber (1995)
Average member rating: (74 ratings)

Too tricky to sort out for me. That said, it's got a unique setting and a solid premise.

2. my father's long, long legs
by michael lutz
(2013)
Average member rating: (90 ratings)

thecanvasrose says:

Eerie with a memorable surprise at the end. A must play for everyone.

Not my jam. Cool effort though.

4. Lydia's Heart
by Jim Aikin
(2007)
Average member rating: (26 ratings)

thecanvasrose says:

Not scary enough to me in terms of the vibe I think it aims for. Better described as "supernatural" than "horror." Still good for what it is.

5. Afflicted, by Doug Egan (2008)
Average member rating: (41 ratings)
thecanvasrose says:

Predictable outcome. Could run more smoothly. Yet it is clever AND funny.

6. The Lurking Horror II: The Lurkening, by Ryan Veeder (2018)
Average member rating: (14 ratings)
thecanvasrose says:

Fun puzzle game. I liked it well enough.

7. Body Bargain
by Amanda Lange
(2012)
Average member rating: (22 ratings)

thecanvasrose says:

Creepy ideas about cosmetic surgery implemented well. Could've been fleshed out more, but this is good as a short.

8. The King of Shreds and Patches
by Jimmy Maher
(2009)
Average member rating: (65 ratings)

thecanvasrose says:

I'm sorry, but I couldn't get myself into this one. Lots of other people love it though.

9. Tales from Castle Balderstone
by Ryan Veeder
(2018)
Average member rating: (6 ratings)

thecanvasrose says:

A clever game with unique parser implementation.

10. Additional Tales from Castle Balderstone
by Ryan Veeder
(2019)
Average member rating: (5 ratings)

thecanvasrose says:

^^^ the sequel

11. 16 Ways to Kill a Vampire at McDonalds
by Abigail Corfman
(2016)
Average member rating: (55 ratings)

thecanvasrose says:

The storyline is good, but this one is best for the puzzles.

12. Soft Earth
by Jon Sorce
(2018)
Average member rating: (1 rating)

thecanvasrose says:

Less of a horror story than a story with horror elements, but it is touching and worth the play time.

13. Babel
by Ian Finley
(1997)
Average member rating: (127 ratings)

thecanvasrose says:

I thought I'd really like this one, but it didn't do it for me. Maybe I'll try it again some other time.
