Your Guide to the Remaining Horror Games of 2014

If you ever needed proof that the horror genre is alive and kicking, this list of the remaining horror games of 2014 ought to give you some hope. In July, I went through this year’s remaining releases in an effort to find every game that may be of interest to those who seek to scratch a very specific itch.

Steam Early Access

All but one of the below games have already been made available on Steam Early Access, but since the point of it is to give indie developers a platform to release their unfinished games early and use the funds and feedback to tweak, improve and eventually finish them, I’ve included every horror game on Steam Early Access so you can .

Paranormal – Released on September 12, 2013
The Dead Linger – Released on September 27, 2013
Project Zomboid — Released on November 8, 2013
7 Days to Die – Released on December 13, 2013
DayZ – Released on December 16, 2013
Dead State – Released on February 13
Nosgoth – Released on March 26
Dead Island: Epidemic – Released on May 9
The Stomping Land – Released on May 30
Note: Following months without updates, the option to purchase The Stomping Land has been removed by Valve.
The Forest – Released on May 30
Frozen State – Released on July 1
Darkwood – July 24
Hellraid – Fall 2014

Also worth mentioning is the survival horror MMO Nether (PC), which has left Steam Early Access, but is still seeing a steady stream of updates.

As you can clearly see, there’s no shortage of horror games on the way, so if I missed something you’re particularly excited about, let me know in the comments and I’ll update accordingly.




  • Ltg1998

    I wish we’d get more news on ‘until dawn’ I’m eagerly awaiting it.

    • ThunderDragoon

      You and me both.

  • Sick_skwerl

    I can’t wait for Allen: Isolation

  • Fantasma George

    Man I forgot Dying Light got delayed. Guess I’ll only take Isolation.

    • Adam Dodd

      Not interested in The Evil Within?

      • Fantasma George

        LOL I keep forgetting that too. Maybe it wouldn’t happen if it were a Suda game.

      • Golic

        Nope, not interested. Graphics aren’t everything; but really bad graphics KILL atmosphere, and The Evil Within looks like it was made like 10 years ago.

  • So many awesome games!

    • Taboo

      and many more to come! 😀

    selfie horror games (fatal frame 5 & second act of dreadout) ? 😉

  • Weresmurf

    Adam: What’s going on with ROAM, are we *ever* likely to see that released!?

    • That’s a good question, and not just because my bosom aches for it. I’ll reach out to the dev for an ETA.

      • Weresmurf

        I just got burnt by THE STOMPING LANDS, which turned out to be a major con 🙁 I’m hoping ROAM goes public soonish because I’ve been (un)dying to play it so much!

  • LoveAnimation

    So Routine is not coming out this year? 🙁
    And when is the PS4 version of Among the Sleep coming out?

    • Actually, Routine might still release this year. I’ve updated the article to reflect that. We haven’t seen much of Asylum, and a lack of trailers/screens is usually a sign that the game still needs a significant amount of work, so I doubt it will arrive before the New Year.

      As for Among the Sleep, it sounds like Sony is eager to get it out on PS4, and as far as I know, Krillbite has committed all of its resources to finishing the port. I imagine we’ll hear more from it soon.

      • LoveAnimation

        Thanks for the information.
        Routine looks really awesome to me and i cant wait to play it so i hope it can still come out this year.
        Except for few exceptions like the Dead Space games for example i dont think we get sci-fi horror games very often.
        I love horror stuff that takes place in insane asylums so im also very interested in Asylum so i hope the developers will finish it soon.
        And yea im really looking forward to play Among the Sleep on my PS4 so i hope it will get a release date soon.
        I hope it wont take as long to port Among the Sleep as it took for Slender the Arrival.

  • I wonder what FEAR online will be like… I loved FEAR 2 & 3 – thought they were dead freaky, I can’t imagine online though!

    • LoveAnimation

      I wonder if the regular FEAR series will ever get a new game or its dead and gone now.
      I want FEAR 4. 🙁

      • Yeah I know! Absolutely loved FEAR 3! Hope they release a FEAR 4!

  • Here is Subzero Now Plain 0
