You’ve spent your entire Halloween budget on decorations, costumes and candy. Now, you want a new game to plan on Halloween night. What are you going to do?
Every one of these games is completely free: no micro-transactions or “pro” versions in sight. You won’t even need a Steam account.
Babysitter Bloodbath: Windows, Mac
It’s a cold autumn night in Monroe, WA and Sarah’s got no wheels and no plans, except for watching some old horror movies on TV. She gets a last minute call from the Johnsons (who saw her ad at the grocery store) to babysit their son Billy. Hoping to get $30 closer to buying a motorcycle, she gets a ride from her Mom to their house on the outskirts of town. Little does she know a simple night of babysitting will turn into an unspeakable nightmare.
A 2D retro platformer from Ben Allen. Explore the colorful underground as an agile skeleton. Backflip to reach higher ledges, roll your skull to get under tight spaces, or dive into the unknown like a true skeleton adventurer to find a way to return to the surface in Skelemania!
An 8-bit sidescroller from Joshua Hurd. It’s All Hallows’ Eve and the witch, Bel, wants to visit her girlfriend, Chime! But on this night, the moon draws out wicked things with evil intent. Help Bel take flight and fight through the spooky spirits of the night! (and maybe get a high score!)
