7 Pixelated Horror Games That May Scare You [Pic]

Submitted by: kitteh9lives 3 years ago in Games

Most horror games these days scare you by pushing a scary monster in every two seconds. The days are long since over where horror games scare you by creating a rather frightening atmosphere. Instead of this, we are just given a cheap jump scare every few seconds. Pixelated horror games are a small horror genre that doesn"t attempt to scare you with massive jump scares, but create a brilliant atmosphere to give you chills and scare you with massive jump scares. The following are seven Scary Pixelated Horror Games. If you have any good ones that I may have missed, add them in the comments

Deep Sleep

Deep Sleep is a point and click horror game that puts the player in a strange lucid nightmare. The ominous music sends chills through your spines as you frantically click on anything suspicious. All the while you are waiting for some sort of monster to appear. This game requires some quick thinking in times of stress, and have you on the on the edge of your seat the whole time also this is the least scary game on this list. Some of the information ties into the sequel to this game, which I will explain next. Scary Rating: 6/10 Play it here: http://armorgames.com/play/13979/deep-sleep

Deeper Sleep

Deeper Sleep is the sequel to the bone-chilling point and click horror game, Deep Sleep. This one has more of a story to it, which is tied in with the first one. The story follows yourself, where you, horrified by the events of the first game, are sucked into a world of nightmares. The overall gameplay is very similar to that of Deep Sleep. Just remember she"s up in the attic. Oh, and it"s Scary Rating: 6.5/10 Play it here: http://armorgames.com/play/15698/deeper-sleep


Run is a very simple, short, yet terrifying game. The cool thing about this one is that the audio is done in a way that it really feels like you are being chased. Dont look up spoilers for what the monster looks like, it will make the experience a lot better if you dont know how simple the monster is, or when it comes. This game is very short and easy and can be completed in about five minutes. Scary Rating: 7.5/10 Download here: http://gamejolt.com/games/other/run-classic/11933/#

ImScared: A Pixelated Nightmare

Oh boy, let me tell you about this one. This is the game that got everyone into pixelated horror. The way this is presented is astounding. You awake to find yourself in your own home, only later it is revealed that you are in a seemingly never ending nightmare. If you have never heard or seen this game before, I won"t spoil too much. But the game is different depending on how you play it, the longer you take the scarier it is. The monster in this is so simple, yet so horrifying. You always feel like you are being watched, there are intense chase scenes that will have your heart pounding. And the game seems to have a life of its own. This is one game that will actually give you nightmares. Scary Rating: 9/10 Download here: http://bit.ly/V0l9X3

I See You

I see you has a lot of build up to it. It takes place in a mental hospital (oh dear) and for the most of it, you are just walking through the levels as the atmosphere slowly builds up. When the thing finally shows up, you wont be expecting it, and it will scare the hell out of you. By atmosphere build up, I mean you will only see little flashes of things which will slightly scare you, the sounds will build up, you will feel like you are constantly being watched, and most of all, there are these error messages that seem to talk to you. Give this a try, it will really scare you. Scary Rating: 9/10 Download here: http://gamejolt.com/games/other/i-see-you/13843/


Oh my god. This game. This is one of the scariest games you will ever play and you will love every second of it. There is so much to say about this that I cant even find the words so here is what its about. It is another nightmare game, where you continuously want to wake up. It is broken up into 7 days where each one is increasingly insane. On the first day, there is a lot of atmosphere build up while you progress through the endless amount of doors in your house. There are just a lot of subtle things that make this scary, for example, the screen flickers red, the environment changes constantly. There are footsteps all around you. You hear frightening noises. Mannequins. This game has everything. You go on massive intense chase scenes, you just want the nightmare to end. Everything is flying up in your face, the first jump scare kills you. There is too much to talk about, so just go play it. Scary Rating: 10/10 Download here: http://gamejolt.com/games/adventure/7days/14592/


This is it, this is the game that started it all. Hide is a game that inspired a ton of other games, which would then inspire a massive chain of more games. This isn"t the scariest game on this list, but I really dont want to spoil anything. When you play this, you will notice the similarities between another chain of horror games. Just go play it. But remember this, sometimes you can hide, but not run. Scary Rating: 7/10

Might be pressing it on `pixelated`, but The Witch`s House is very good.

Actually there`s a couple other RPG Maker games I`ve been meaning to try out.

Oooo! Most excellent! I think I`ll copy the links for later consumption (since I forget to check my IAB Favorites for things!) on some dark and stormy night...

Silent Hill: I never actually played it (just the first bit, which is pretty scary too!!) But read all about it and LOVED the movie!
