FAQ - Horror Games

What is a horror game?

A horror game is typically a video game designed to scare its player through a variety of techniques. Unlike most video game genres, though, the horror game genre is not based on gameplay elements, but rather the result of playing the game. Because of this, most horror games tend to lean heavily on narrative and graphics, rather than gameplay elements, to achieve their goal.
Horror games can be generally broken down into five more specific categories: action horror, jump-scare horror, psychological horror, reverse horror, and survival horror.

Are there scary horror games to play with friends?

Yes, horror games can be even more fun when played with friends. Typically, multiplayer horror games are broken down into several distinct types. Some have you and friends playing together to survive something horrific, while others – typically an asymmetric reverse horror game – have one player taking on the role of the scary antagonist while the others try to survive the monster chasing them.

Are horror games scary?

Yes! The scarier the better.
