5 Free PC Horror Games To Enjoy This October

Free PC Horror Games That Will Make You Scream Your Costumes Off This October

Free PC Horror Games

Hey Poor Players! We all know that no price is as appealing as free, and with Halloween looming in the fake cobweb filled rafters of the upcoming season, it seemed only appropriate to put together a list of some of the games available to anyone with an even moderately functional PC (or Mac), and maybe a not so functioning budget.

I make no guarantee that every one of these games will actually give you a good scare, but each of them holds a pretty strong sense of the creepy and uncanny. More importantly, each of these is a high quality game that deserve more attention than they actually receive. Few of them take more than a couple of hours to complete, but you’ll wish they were longer when the credits start to roll.

Each title offers its own flavor of original art, music, and play style. No one game is exactly like the other, and as such there is something for everyone here.

These are listed in no specific order of preference or quality, those opinions are left solely to you, good reader. So without further adieu, let’s get started!

A graduate of Full Sail University in the field of Game Design, Beth currently works at a small game development studio as a QA Engineer (a fancy name for a QA Tester - which means she plays video games for a living). Beth is obsessed with Heroclix and loves all things BioWare. In her spare time she enjoys gaming, reading, writing, and playing with her dogs (yes, she's a crazy dog mom). She's also quite a big fan of sleeping and eating and is trying to figure out how to combine these abilities.

    Good choices all around. I especially loved Cry Of Fear. Superb, especially for a freebie.
