Steam’s Scream deal event is discounting so many scary PC games

This time of year is marked by a greater amount of darkness, which allows you to play spooky games in a dark, moody environment. If you need some activities to fright and delight you, check out Steam’s Scream sale that discounts tons of games — some of which aren’t so scary, actually.

Steam Scream: The Revenge’s homepage curates some of the most popular scary games that are discounted, which I consider to be a favor that saves me from sorting through Steam’s humongous catalog. You can also sort by top sellers and by most-downloaded demos, which is where you’ll find the demo for the PS1 Silent Hill-inspired Crow Country.

You can still find a huge number of titles to browse through, even after some curation. If you simply want some recs, we’ve got some for you below.

Alien IsolationIt’s $13.59, (was $39.99). Confession time: I haven’t beaten this game, but it’s not for a lack of trying. What starts out as a chill exploration game turns into a first-person survival game where I’m afraid to take a step — let alone breathe in real life. It’s some of the most effective suspense I’ve experienced in a game.

Ghost Trick: Phantom DetectiveIt is now only $19.79, down from $29.99. You should know that not all ghost games are terrifying. A few games are actually a bit goofy. This recent remaster of Capcom’s cult classic on the Nintendo DS has a clever, puzzle-dense gameplay hook and amazing music.


Hunt: The ShowdownIt’s now $29.99, down from $39.99. This is the co-op PvPvE multiplayer game that my friends still can’t quit. This game has dozens of participants load in a bayou environment inhabited by AI opponents. It’s a race to kill the AI bosses, take their loot and get out. It is constantly updating the game with weapons, cosmetics, and characters. In case you’ve wondered what Crytek, makers of CrysisThis gorgeous FPS multiplayer title is being maintained and improved.
