Some Indie horror games? May. 28th, 2012 @ 08:43 PM Reply

So i've been watching alot of PEWDIEPIE lately, and I have played most of the stuff that is free. But I want more. I love horror games. So if anybody could recommend me some free/or not horror games that would be awesome. Oh but before anybody asks, yes I have played Amnesia already.

Oh and maybe some links to these games could be handy as well, cause I am abit of a dumbass with this sort of thing.

Not really an indie game, but you can try out Nightmare House 2 (a mod) if you have Half Life 2: Episode 2. It includes Nightmare House 1 as well. You can google it and it's easy to install (all you need is Half Life 2: Episode 2 for the resources).

What surprises me about this mod is that it kind of uses a spontaneous "scare" simulator much like that of Left 4 Dead's ai simulator. Don't know what it's called, but it is definitely there.

I have thought about Dear Esther; apparently its just pressing the W key for 45 minutes.

As on Half Life and Nightmare House; Say you don't have half life episode 2, would you be able to torrent it and be able to play the mod off the torrented version? Or is it a must to have brought it?

You will most likely encounter really annoying or game breaking glitches (though this is rare) either at the title screen or halfway through the game if you don't have a registered copy of half life 2: episode 2 (ie a purchased copy). I just remember the author of the mod explicitly saying that when I was reading up on the mod some time ago (like 5 months ago).

If you want the mod to work properly, just buy Episode 2 off steam. It's 8 bucks. The mod is about 2-5 hours long, but hey it's free. Plus you can play Episode 2.

Yeah I just brought it then, I couldn't be bothered downloading it. And for $8 why the hell not. Checked it out before and it defenatly seems to have the fright factor there.
I was also thinking, doesn't that new mod Cry of Fear run of HL EP 2, or is it a mod of HL1?

You made the right decision.

It's got a couple of jump scares and likes to play with your mind...radiant scare triggers here and there (as in some areas might surprise you, or trick you, or nothing will happen). Plus, it has an interesting story. And like I said, when you install Nightmare House 2, it comes with Nightmare House 1 as well. It's the prologue.

I was also thinking, doesn't that new mod Cry of Fear run of HL EP 2, or is it a mod of HL1?

It runs off of the original Half Life 1, but not the source version of Half life 1. I've heard Cry of Fear is really good.

Have a frightful evening!

I have played SCP, Both versions of it to be exact.
Lone Survivor, I have thought about buying, but not to sure as of yet.
Ao Oni, also thought about that, but it doesn't seem that scary to me.
I couldn't find anything on Lb.
Yume Nikki seemed more weird than it did scary.
