I ain’t afraid of no ghost. You follow Marianne, a medium who can travel to the spirit realm, on her psychological horror adventure.

The palpable tension in the atmosphere adds to the experience as you try to avoid the threat of a malevolent spirit known as The Maw at all costs. The story is downright terrifying and definitely should not be missed.

Little Nightmares 2

If you loved the original Little Nightmares, which surprised many players with its weird and wonderful visuals, you will also fall in love with the sequel prequel.

Little Nightmares 2 offers a prequel story to the original as you take control of the new character Mono and work with Six, the main protagonist from the previous game, to discover the origin of a mysterious signal.

It may not petrify you, but a frantic creepy long-necked Teacher will linger in your memory long after you have completed the campaign.

Dead By Daylight

Dead By Daylight is an asymmetrical multiplayer horror game from Behaviour Interactive. It features five players, four of which are survivors and one is the killer.

The killer has limited visibility and mobility, which gives players a decent chance of survival. There are plenty of ways to enjoy the massively popular game, such as playing as world-known slashers from Halloween, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Scream.


Are you a monster or a victim of the haunted house? In this, you take control of Dwayne Anderson, who killed all his family members, including himself.

However, he is now awake, covered in blood, and locked in the house with paranormal activity happening all around him.
Dwayne searches exit from the purgatory he is locked in as he navigates through the tormented souls of the home’s previous residents.

Alien: Isolation

Alien: Isolation is based on the classic movie series and is brimming with terrifying content just like the films. If you enjoyed the movie franchise, there is no reason not to love the video game.

Alien: Isolation is a masterpiece of suspense and horror, and you will hear every heartbeat as you take control of Amanda, Ripley’s daughter, on the Sevastopol space station. Beware of the xenomorph on the loose.

Resident Evil: Village

Set in a Victorian-style land, you fight your way as Ethan Winters in a castle full of vampires, werewolves, and humanoid creatures.

It is not filled with as many jump-scares as its predecessors, but it offers a much more rounded experience offering depth to every aspect of the game.

The Evil Within 2

Critics praised The Evil Within upon its release in 2014, and the story continues in the sequel, released in 2017. You take control of Sebastian Castellanos, a troubled man who learns that his only daughter is still alive. However, there is a catch.

Lily is held hostage and used as a host brain for a virtual utopia, Union. It has turned into a dystopia as it has descended into madness, filled with murder and monsters.
The emotions behind the story will tear you apart, and the dystopian nightmare you entered will have you jumping off your chair.
