Scary escape games are a niche genre that doesn’t get as much recognitions as role play games, shooters, puzzles, etc. Yet, when we’re in for a good spook, nothing will captivate us more than a good horror game where you have to apply your wits to get away from danger.
There are plenty of interactive horror stories out there, but not all of them can be considered escape games. As we’re concerned, even a classic point and click can become an escape story at some point, If it features at least several of these elements:
The puzzles are also important, but many creators try to make them easier. Of course, it shuffles the sense of adventure a lot, but it makes the games playable for beginners. However, if you’re up for a challenge, we present you a free game that’s a good place to start.
People are dying all over the place, and it’s up to you to find out why. The first guess might be the plague, but after observing the scene for quite a bit you begin to understand that it’s actually something else… and it’s coming to get you.
The game was created back in 2009, but it doesn’t feel that way. Hand-drawn graphics, messy but beautiful art and conveniently laconic storytelling are features we love in point and click games even today.
The full version of the game is available for free, so it’s a nice way to get into genre and find out whether it suits you. After you finish the adventure, make sure to try other of the many horror escape games out there!
