Top 10 Best Indie Horror Games

Indie horror games just like regular Indie games are made by independent game developers. The only difference is that they're more horror related. Let's count down the best of them shall we. Regardless if it was made on GameJolt or some other game website. Scaryness is not what I'll be ranking these games by but rather their overall story, depth and atmosphere.

The Top Ten

1 Doki Doki Literature Club! Doki Doki Literature Club!

This is easily the game with the biggest plot twist. No scratch that. The game itself is a massive surprise by itself, not even mentioning the creative scares and heavy use of game files.

Needs to be higher

Easily the most surprising game of 2017, and one of the best exapmles of the book-cover metaphor. It's definitely worth a shot, expecially because of how far Team Salvato went with this game.


2 Mad Father

This game is just great not only is it terrifying but the atmosphere is great as well and has more effort put into it then *COUGH COUGH* Five Nights at Aid's.

3 Slender: The Eight Pages

Overrated to a extent but still good.

4 Five Nights at Freddy's

It's the game the started and boosted the indie horror game scene

It's me!

Best game ever! Way better than Mad Father! And that’s a fact!

5 The Witch's House

Just as well done as Mad Father.

6 Slender: The Arrival

A solid sequel to the first Slender game.

7 Behind
8 Amnesia: The Dark Descent

While it is somewhat overrated because of PewDiePie it's still a solid horror game overall.

9 Buried Beneath

A good Indie Horror game despite it being on GameJolt.

10 Insanity

A Slender Man based game that's well done. If you're curious search it up on GameJolt.

The Contenders

11 Stories Untold

A very solid Indie horror game.

12 Imscared - A Pixelated Nightmare

A interesting indie horror game with a interesting concept.

It’s a scary game
