Just that picture alone doesn't make me want to play it.
I'm a giant pussy. I know. Q_Q
I've played Penumbra Overture and Black Plague, as well as Amnesia. I've never seen a game this dark before. At some points only, though. Well the only real dark place in Amnesia was the storage and wine cellar. You stay put in the darkness for some time and your vision allows you to see your surroundings, because your eyes adapt to the darkness.
Like AOM has this. You have a flashlight with dying batteries. While Penumbra throws them after you, AOM jews you out of batteries. And i don't want to talk about the enemies. What a freakshow.
Wasn't it a HL1 mod?
Dark is boring. Gimme FEAR!
DO NOT WANT jumpscares, it's just shock. I want FEAR.
Dare you accept the challenge? inb4 Which, it's shit and still jumpscares.
you don't mean " F.E.A.R. " ?
No, I don't. I mean supreme feeling of uneasiness, doom and despair combined into one, yielding in more than just a sum of the components.
F.E.A.R. does not count as a true horror game by my standards. It's just full of random scares and sudden jumps from action to horror and back.
It's a good FPS, anyway, though I kind of liked F.E.A.R. 2 more.
I could tell you guys to play… let's say… Cryostasis, for example. It gets VERY surreal in some parts, but it's a good game.
Does anyone know any psychological/disturbing games?
Or ones with good creepy plots
This really makes me wonder, has there ever been a game that genuinely scares you without something jumping out or even moving? Just a simple scene that petrifies you as the fridge horror slowly sets in?
The flash game Covetous had a similar effect. I get more scared by the idea of something than actual jumping out/etc
Where is Amnesia? DO YOU KNOW THE MAGNITUDE OF YOUR CRIMES?!
Amnesia is overrated and that list is hundred years old.
I've hardly played scarier games that don't base on jumpscares.
And it's scarier then many of that list, so it deserves a place there.
How about something short and sweet?
Guide a little girl through her house and try not to get her caught by the serial killer/rapist hiding inside.
**Only scary if you have anything against mild gore, though. http://www.aeonity.com/ab/games/role-playing/the-ugly.php
I played that awhile ago. It didn't really feel horrific or suspenseful to me, just gory and kinda dumb. It's just like, you're in this well lit house, you know there's this rapist waiting for you somewhere, and considering the blood all over the place, it's pretty easy to assume your parents are either dead or close to it. So it's a dangerous situation, sure, but there's almost no mystery or atmosphere to draw you in.
If you want something short and sweet, grab the SNES Clock Tower and its fan translation. Great atmosphere to draw you in, so you're more likely to be scared when Scissorman or whatever else shows up, multiple endings, and one playthrough can be done in around half an hour to an hour, though the first runthrough's more likely to be around 2 hours.
Have to agree with this. I've got the SNES version of Clock Tower on an emulator and it's pretty jarring the first time you play it. The game's pretty short, but worth a few replays because the game differs a little each playthrough.
If you like Clock Tower, I definitely reccomend Haunting Ground as well. It was really the first survival horror game I picked up, so seeing it on the reccomend game list is great. I have to agree it's not particularly scary, but it's still worth a try. It's got a lot of replay value, at least for me.
This thread is made of everything I love.
Controls aside, Nanashi no Game is pretty scary. I recommend it. Beat it on an emulator.
i recognize that character but can't figure out who she is… could you tell me?
Daniella from Haunting Ground.
>>736>oh sure, looks nice>battle system CLICK ALT+BACK CLICK ALT+BACK>get mauled a bit anyway>the scariest thing about this game is now to live through the next monster to get the morphium
Fuck this shit. Gay mod.
SCP-087-B (I think it's E now actually). It's a long walk down a staircase that has the terrifying atmosphere of Amnesia. There are randomly programmed scared. Off the top of my head the only other two I can think of that haven't been posted are Au Sable (freeware!) and Rule of Rose, which is like Lord of the Flies with little girls. It's not so much scary as it is very disturbing.
B and E are different versions. The B version had a bit of an update some time ago and currently has more events than the E version, which didn't get updated as far as I know. It was a pain to get the updated B version though
Where can I find this?
I'd recommend google for starters.
"afraid of monsters download" already granted results.
But seeing as "Cry of Fear" (the second mod of the same maker) is offered on steam, perhaps it's on steam too.
I was really surprised to learn that Afraid of Monsters was not only made by one guy, but that the was a kid when he made it. It's a damn fine game, though. Relies a bit too much on jump scares, but it's a very solid horror game.
Now, it's spiritual sequel, Cry of Fear (also made by the same guy, albeit with a full team) is scarier, more atmospheric, and all around much better.
That's scary like the village of the damned.
