Halloween is just around the corner and that means it’s time to break out the scary movies and games! (Is it ever a bad time for that?) No matter how you celebrate this day, something on this list is sure to appeal to you.

Even if not, there are countless other horror and monster themed games out there from the famous titles like Alone in the Dark and Ghosts & Goblins to the letter known indie thrillers such as Doki Doki Literature Club and Pony Island, there’s always something to play alone and in the dark.

Here are some games I would recommend checking out to get in the mood for thrills and chills. It has everything from lighthearted spooks to in your face jump scares!

From one foodie to another, midnight snacking is heavily encouraged in Klei Entertainment‘s video game, Don’t Starve. This product arrived on multiple platforms back in 2013, and from time to time I come back to playing this game, especially when the nights are long (mirroring the game), I feel isolated from the world at large and feel very, very alone.

Since then, this product has expanded into new directions. The Shipwrecked edition had me thinking of Théodore Géricault’s majestic painting, The Raft of the Medusa.

Coming later this year is Hamlet, and the Shakespeare in me is very excited to see how this play is going to be adapted into video game form. This company has been busy with developing other properties like Oxygen not Included and Griftlands; their visual style is what keeps me coming back to the company webpage to admire what’s next. With their core game, Don’t Starve has a strong cult following, yes I’m left hungry for more.
