Sweet Home

5 Horror Games You've Probably Never Played

Based upon the Japanese horror film of the same name, Sweet Home is a psychological horror JRPG for the Famicom that puts players in control of a team of five treasure seekers as they explore the very abandoned (and very haunted) mansion of artist Ichirō Mamiya. Featuring the risk permadeath, players must use the unique skills of their players to survive the many traps and terrors that await in the sprawling estate while solving the mysteries surrounding the haunted house’s eerie frescoes. While never officially released in the US, diligent fans have produced a translated version of this superb early survival horror adventure, and while we at Hey Poor Player would NEVER condone piracy, those with Google and half a brain cell can likely get their mitts on a the game with a quick Google search.

Frank has been the caffeine-fueled evil overlord of HeyPoorPlayer since 2008. He speaks loudly and carries a big stick to keep the staff of the HPP madhouse in check. A collector of all things that blip and beep, he has an extensive collection of retro consoles and arcade machines crammed into his house. Currently playing: Dodonpachi Dai-Ou-Jou (Arcade), Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove (Switch), Neo Turf Masters (Neo Geo)
