In case you haven’t realized it already, this is an exciting time to be a horror fan. With Outlast coming tomorrow and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs a week later, we have two of the most anticipated horror games of the year getting ready to scare the pants off all of us. By mid-September we’ll all be bottomless, and that’s almost more terrifying than the six games I’m about to introduce (or re-introduce) you to.

If you read this list and find yourself craving more indie horror, feel free to check out my previous lists of indie horror games you need to play — some are free, some aren’t. Now let’s jump in.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent

Considered by many to be the “scariest game of all time,” Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a must-play for any horror fan. It expertly builds up each scare, keeping you on the edge of your seat so when the shit really hits the fan — for me, this happens about an hour into the game when you enter the flooded hallway — the dread is thick and effective. If you’re a fan of the genre, you should have played this game by now. If you haven’t, jumping into it now may be the perfect way to prepare for its sequel, A Machine for Pigs.

Get it here!

Fran Bow

Fran Bow surprised me, and it did so by being entirely different from what I expected. On the surface, it’s a seemingly harmless indie game with a quirky art style and an unusual cast of characters, but once you explore what’s underneath you soon realize it’s an intensely twisted horror game that’s disturbing, gory and extremely clever.

    The Path has been skipped again. That game is freaky.
