"It's almost Halloween. Which means that it's time to partake in the grand tradition of gorging on horror media — scary movies, ghost stories and most importantly, terrifying games.
There are a number of high profile releases to get excited about this season. Alien: Isolation and The Evil Within have both launched this month, and Neverending Nightmares, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter and D4 (which was more bizarre Swery65-ery than true horror) are all very recently released.
But you don't need to spend tons of money to get a solid horror fix this season. Actually, you don't need to spend any money at all. The following is a list of scary, mostly indie games. Some are Interactive Fiction (IF). Some are first-person exploration, others fit better into the adventure genre, some are even management sims. But every game on this list is spooky, and every one is 100% free."
