Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of January we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 170 people to reach our January goal of 3,000 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in February!

Please check out our Supporter Upgrade and consider coming aboard!

Afraid is a horror game, and a prequel to Afraid of Dark.
Re-live the last moments of the victims and save their souls from the darkness.
Every chapter will be in a different place, and some will have a different play style.

All the chapters are played with the mouse.
Some of them show a button and others use clicking for toggling the flashlight.
If you don't understand something, here's a simple guide.

Holy sh^t that jumpscare got me! (Awesome game)

Five stars because the jump scare actually got me lmfao.

great game, I would like it to be more of such games

I have no idea how to survive. I know it's suppose to get more difficult as the game progresses but, it is EXTREMELY difficult. Anyway the jump scare made me cringe even when I knew it was coming, great aspect!

The jumpscare literally made my jump. (I'm never sleeping again)
