Here are some of the best psychological adventure-horror games available on Steam.
Looking for some good old jump scares or maybe a blood-chilling story? Then you’ve definitely come to the wrong place. Seeing how the psychological horror adventure genre lately revolved around titles such as Resident Evil Biohazard or the upcoming Outlast 2, we have decided to put together a small list of indie adventure-horror games that you can purchase on Steam.
Now, please do try to keep in mind that a good horror game doesn’t necessarily need to have 4K graphics or ugly monsters – a great story and an unsettling soundtrack are more than enough to make you keep the lights on while playing the game at night.
So, grab onto to your headphones, fire up your Steam account, and join us as we talk about the most amazing indie adventure horror games on Steam.
