Horror-themed Adventure Games

Post by IndigoHD »

By now the library of supported Games for ScummVM is truly humongous!
I was wondering if perhaps someone could list a few scary games worth playing so we we could get into the Halloween-spirit a bit early this year!

The Hugo's House of Horrors trilogy is one I'm particularly fond of because I enjoy them as a kid.

I know Dark Seed is particularly horror-themed. But there are others that aren't QUITE horror but certainly are tense thrillers with dark content. Like the Call of Cthulhu games. I can't speak for Shadow of the Comet, but its sequel Prisoner of Ice had a profound effect on me as a kid. Edge of my seat the whole time.
