Spooky Games Five: A New Beginning


It is with great pride and anticipation that I welcome you to this, the fifth year of our haunting celebration. Every year since 2014 I have lined up a minimum of 31 horror games to play and review during the month of October, and this year is no exception. The subtitle is not just a cheeky reference, either, as this year marks a turning point for my work. The majority of the games I’ll be reviewing have been graciously given by their developers or publishers for review purposes, and I’m also streaming a large number of the games on this list.

For reviews, you’ll find a brand new one waiting for you every day at 8am PST. I’m covering an excellent cross-section of major releases, indie gems, and general weirdness that should include something for everyone. Check the website daily for your horror fix!

My streams are also horror-heavy this month, and if you’re interested in tuning in here’s the schedule:

  • Mondays (9pm PST) – The Evil Within 2 full playthrough
  • Wednesdays (9pm PST) – Indie Horror Night featuring 2-3 games from the list
  • Fridays (9pm PST) – Indie Variety Night including some horror greats from previous years

Below you will find a helpful wall of links to our Twitch and YouTube channels, our Steam Curations which will help you find solid deals on solid games, our Discord server for spooky chats, and more. And below that will be the grand list of reviews once we kick things off on October 1st! Turn out the lights and grab your safety blankets, because there’s a whole month of scares ahead!
