Good Horror Games?



  • So I'm a huge fan of horror. I know I wrote months back about WoD (Old, please and thank you) and didn't really click into any games. My fault on that - life was irksome.

    That being said, are there any other types of horror games out there?

    Cheers for any suggestions!



  • I'm not sure what qualifies as good by your standards but here are a few games that I know about. All of them run on Ares.

    Obsidian Reverie - Chronicles of Darkness 2e. I think they used to do their sheets via google docs. Not sure if that's still the way.

    Doomed - A Buffy game that uses FS3. They do allow FCs, which may or may not be a deal breaker for you.

    Then there's obviously Gray Harbor and Spirit Lake but I think those are more supernatural based than horror.

    I know of a few games in development. Another Buffy game and a game that is meant to embody the spirit of Gothic dramas like Dark Shadows and Vampire Diaries.

    Hope those help!



  • Hey there!

    I'm the Tech Admin for Obsidian Reverie are 2e WoD, run of Ares and still working off Google Sheets like Zombie mentioned. Though I am preparing to take another crack at an Ares plugin for WoD but there's no holding breath on that xD. I am not an expert coder by any means.

    Feel free to drop me a line with any questions :)



  • Gray Harbor is horror themed but has nothing to do with WoD. It comes down to what exactly you mean by 'horror' -- urban American Call of Cthulhu is probably where I'd end up if I had to apply one, quick label.

    To add to this, GH also heavily reminds me of Stephen King-esque Horror. Specifically IT and probablyyy The Shining.



  • Thanks for all the replies, guy! I like all types of horror (my old post was just an example! Doesn't have to all be WoD set.)

    Supernatural, psychological - I'm pretty keen for a number of things. So far, so good, I'll have to see what I can get a feel for. Keep'em coming! If there are more that come to mind that is.
