DreadXP just had their Indie Horror Showcase featuring a lot of cool and spooky games you are going to want to wishlist. It was very neat to see all the different ways these companies tackled the genre. I didn’t want this post to be too long, so I chose five games I am most excited about. It was very hard to narrow down the list to just ten, so make sure you go check out the video and the official Steam Page to see all the awesome games I couldn’t fit on this list. If you’ve been enjoying these updates, make sure you like, comment, subscribe, and share this with your friends! Don’t forget to wishlist!
1. WORLD OF HORROR
I am most excited about WORLD OF HORROR because of its unique art style and terrifying scenes. WORLD OF HORROR is a retro roguelite RPG for PC, PS4, and Nintendo Switch featuring turn-based combat and decisions that matter.
The Old Gods have reawakened and terrorized a small seaside town. Sanity dwindles as its population endures hellish horrors as grotesque creatures terrorize their home. Watch it all unfold through the perspective of 5 playable characters. Do you have what it takes to survive the horrors?
You can pick up WORLD OF HORROR now on Steam $14.99 (normally $19.99) until November 2nd. The Switch version comes in the summer.
2. Sorry We’re Closed
Sorry We’re Closed just looks like a good time. I love the homage to the classic era of horror. Sorry We’re Closed seems like the perfect blend for traditional fixed-camera survival horror and arcade-style first-person shooter. I love the Lofi quirky aesthetic, and the soundtrack seems amazing. The combat looks great, the third eye mechanic is neat, and the game will have multiple endings for replayability.
Michele has been cursed by a demon, and must now travel through their realm to break it. With the power of her third eye and anything else she can find, she must brave the dangers that surround her. Will she be able to break her curse?
The Sorry We’re Closed Demo is out now, and I don’t see why you wouldn’t try it. The game plans to release sometime next year, but no date has been set yet. Make sure you wishlist!
3. Hunt The Night
I am a sucker for pixel art games, and Hunt the Night looks fantastic. The combat system looks like a blast, the world looks impressive, and the story looks interesting.
Hunt the Night is a retro action-adventure game for PC via Steam, GoG, and Epic Games. Play as Vesper and explore the world of Medhram and fight its horrors. Conquer its dungeons and defeat its bosses in what promises to be a fast-paced skill-based dark fantasy.
Hallowbody looks terrifying. It definitely gives me early survivor horror vibes, and I am here for it. The setting is ominous, the story seems interesting, and the gameplay looks fun.
After a mission goes wrong, you find yourself in a decaying abandoned city, but you are not alone. Horrors hide in the shadows, and you need to find a way out. Push your way through the zone as you solve puzzles, manage resources, and fight your way to safety. Do you have what it takes to survive?
Hallowbody is fully voice-acted with multiple endings and promises a terrifying narrative. A release date hasn’t been set yet, but you can at least add it to your wishlist.
5. Post Trauma
Last but not least, I have to mention Post Trauma. This game looks trippy in the best way, and I need to know where the developers take it.
Post Trauma is a survival horror game coming to PC. Play as Roman as reality twists around him. Solve puzzles, uncover secrets, and try to find a way out of this nightmare.
Post Trauma plays homage to the classic era of the genre. It promises a dense, nonlinear story with a surreal mind-bending world full of horror. No release date has been set, but you can at least add it to your wishlist.
Make sure you check out the rest of the showcase, there were a lot of cool games that you might want to look into. You can also go to the official Steam Page and look up the ones that are most interesting to you. Make sure you do the things. Thanks for reading!
