Read: Terrifying video games you have never heard of


As fans are gearing up for Resident Evil Village, here are some of the terrifying horror video games that you might have never heard of.

Video games have the power to elevate horror stories to a level that books and films cannot. This is because video games help the player to relieve the gameplay and be a part of the environment.

While preparing for the next Capcom’s release, check out the list below for some interesting titles to get your hands on.

List of unknown video games:

Layers of Fear

Layers of Fear is a psychological horror game that was released in 2016. The game tests players and their limits to withstand horror elements present inside a survival horror fest.

This video game has had well-received feedback and has a general score of 78 on Metacritic.


The game was released in 2012 but was later released on Steam in 2016. This game has offered players an extremely gruesome environment by constantly breaking the fourth wall.

Some intentional crashes and adding game files to the player’s PC make this game a true spine-chilling experience.

Fatal Frame

Fatal Frame was released in 2001, and, on steam, it was available starting from 2002. This game puts all the players in an atmospheric mansion where they have to find their clues and escape.

Fatal Frame has received well-claimed feedback and about 74-78 score on Metacritic.

If you are a fan of gore, then this game will surely excite you.

There were a ton of sequels added to this game with interesting titles such as Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water.

Additional games you can check out:

Penumbra: The Black Plague

Penumbra: The Black Plague was developed by Frictional Games. It was released in early 2008. If you have played the Amnesia series, then this game is surely not a wonder for you.

Much like Amnesia: The Dark Descent, the Black Plague dives into the world of zombies where players have to fight for survival.

Stories Untold

No Code’s release, Stories Untold, is an episodic puzzle game. The game is set in the early 1980s.

The gameplay is surely reminiscent of classic text-adventures. Stories Untold have received a lot of good feedback from critics as the game has garnered a score of 81 on Metacritic.

Clock Tower

Clock Tower has earned its spot in this list because it has the terrifying villain of all time, the Scissorman.

This game has more emphasis on its puzzle-solving activities and has 8 possible endings for players to wander about.
