Lethal Company has made quite the waves in the entire gaming community since the first week of its release in Early Access. If you are not willing to pitch in money for Lethal Company, here are some free alternatives like Lethal Company you can try.
Free-to-Play Games Similar to Lethal Company
Here’s the best selection of free-to-play games as similar to Lethal Company as possible, to the best of my knowledge.
SCP: Secret Laboratory on Steam
The most popular SCP multiplayer game is most probably SCP: Secret Laboratory. Thousands of players are still active in the community, and it’s a tightly knit community despite Lethal Company swooping in to take a chunk of their players. Try it out with your friends and see if it is a game for you in an hour or two. But be careful, nobody will hold your hand!
SCP Containment Breach Multiplayer on Steam
On Steam, you can play SCP Containment Breach Multiplayer free of charge. It still has a small but devoted community. If you have experience with SCPs, you certainly know that some of Lethal Company’s monsters have powers that are pretty similar to the powers of certain SCPs. And it has quite the low minimum system requirements, so almost any PC can run it.
For your reference, playable SCPs in this game are:
Roblox Knock-off Clones
I’ve checked out quite a few of Roblox knock-offs of Lethal Company, but “Deadly Company” takes the cake. It’s probably the best replica within Roblox. It’s very playable and has sufficient players. If you’ve read about Zeekerss here at Prima Games or otherwise follow this developer’s work, you know that Zeekerss used to create great horror Experiences in Roblox.
The Backrooms World Free Demo
The “Backrooms” theme is one of the latest horror trends, and I am glad to see it thrive after seeing major success with Slenderman and SCP. There is a free demo you can try on Steam. However, be mindful that it’s still a demo and that you won’t get to see much of the game.
