Indiscriminate List of Good Horror Games

Recommendations by thecanvasrose

This list includes horror games that I personally feel indifferent about but have good ratings/reputation/etc. Created for those looking to explore the genre in IF.

For more, see my list of my favorite horror games: https://ifdb.tads.org/viewlist?id=4yoty23cl7vcyymt

(Note: I'll work on expanding this list later)

1. Theatre, by Brendon Wyber (1995)
Average member rating: (72 ratings)
thecanvasrose says:

Too tricky to navigate for me - I found it less entertining than frustrating. That said, it's got a unique setting and a solid premise.

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

Predictable outcome. Could run more smoothly. Yet it is clever, and quite humorous.

Eerie with a memorable surprise at the end.

Not my jam. Cool effort though.

5. Lydia's Heart
by Jim Aikin
(2007)
Average member rating: (25 ratings)

thecanvasrose says:

Not that scary/spooky to me. Closer to 'supernatural fiction' than 'horror' IMO. Still good for what it is.
