1. Little Nightmares

Little Nightmares

Little Nightmares might be small in scale but it’s big on scares. Transporting you to a creepy dollhouse, this indie horror game forces you to confront your childhood fears in a beautiful Tim Burton-inspired setting. At least there are no clowns…

2. Soma

Soma

Coming from the creators of Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Soma is a haunting journey into the depths of a disturbing near future where the lines between man and machine are blurred.

3. Doki Doki Literature Club

Doki Doki Literature Club

At first glance you wouldn’t guess that Doki Doki Literature Club is anything but an ultra-cutesy anime-style visual novel, but nothing can prepare you for the terror that unravels in this deceptively brilliant psychological horror game.

4. Layers of Fear

Layers of Fear

Descend into the twisted mind of an obsessive painter in Layers of Fear. This psychedelic horror game will push the limits of your psyche and have you questioning everything you see. Warning: there will be clowns.

5. Observer

Observer

Developed by the team that brought you Layers of Fear, Observer touches on some of the same themes as Soma, transporting you to a dystopian world where the human mind has become intertwined with technology.
