4. Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair

Danganronpa 2 Trailer

Same school, different setting. No decaying school setting this time. Instead, you and your classmates are whisked away to a tropical island on what is supposed to be a relaxing school trip.

But that doesn’t mean murder isn’t on the planner.

This time you play as Hajime. He lost all of his memories and has no idea even what his special talent is that got him into the elite school.

Again, we are thrown into the 2.5D world. And, again, we must survive the class trials and accusations of others as murder begins to spread.

3. I Have No Mouth, And I Must Scream

I Have No Mouth, And I Must Scream Trailer

Based on the award-winning short story by Harlan Ellison, I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream is set in a post-apocalyptic future. There are only five survivors left of humanity. And they are being tortured constantly by a sentient computer who hates humanity.

The pixelated art style does not take away from the creepy-ness of the reality being presented. It is a point and click style game with very specific action options.

Is humanity worth saving? That’s the question the game asks and it is up to you to find the answer.

2. Lone Survivor: The Director's Cut

In another pixelated and very creepy, very dark game you are a masked survivor in a city that has been all but destroyed by a disease. How you survive is entirely up to you.

The game touts 5 different endings and the director’s cut promises to be more polished and less buggy than the original.

So, will you sneak through the game or kill everything in sight? Look for survivors or stick it out alone? It’s all up to you. Just watch out for the creepy things that lurk in the shadows.
