Best Roblox horror games: great scary games in Roblox

It’s a well-known fact that if anything is trending on the internet, you can bet that Roblox will have at least a few games based on it, and that number will grow exponentially if the topic is terrifying. It is no surprise that there is a plethora of Backrooms games available on Roblox right now. One of the most popular and finest Backrooms games on Roblox Backrooms is Apeirophobia, which name means “fear of infinity” in Greek. Apeirophobia captures all the characteristic frightening empty spaces of the viral smash creepypasta video while being more focused on exploration than survival, as I believe any excellent Backrooms game should be.

If you’ve been wondering why “scary corn game” has suddenly become so popular on Roblox, it’s because the precise word for corn phobia, Kalampokiphobia, is impossible to spell or pronounce. With the help of TikTok and YouTube jumpscare videos, this game, which first appeared on the platform earlier this year, is expected to be the major Roblox horror craze for Halloween. It’s a very conventional hide-and-seek game where you flee from a ridiculous (but yet slightly spooky) stalker figure through a confusing corn maze.

Dead Silence boasts in its description that it is the “#1 Scariest Game on Roblox,” yet the fact that it has been circulating since 2011 is indicative of its genuine spook factor. Current players may be reminded of a cross between Slender and Phasmophobia as they work in teams of up to four to search a desolate building for a set of keys that will allow them to escape. The RNG dispersed those keys all over the place, and something sinister is surely on the prowl to get your party.

If you’ve ever played the perennial favorite Murder Mystery 2 on Roblox, or indeed Among Us, or any of the other Werewolf-like games that have experienced an uptick in popularity over the past year, you’ll be well acquainted with Murder Party. But, in Murder Party, the four teams (Murderers, Sheriffs, Hackers, and Party-Planners) race to achieve their objectives before the other teams do so at the expense of slow-burn social deduction. It’s a high-stakes balancing act to get everything done and remain undetected, all while dodging, disrupting, or annihilating the enemy.

Nominated for Best Single Player Game at the 2020 Bloxy Awards, “Alone in a Dark House” is one of the scarier horror experiences here. You play a private investigator who explores a creepy, deserted mansion in search of clues about the mysterious family that once resided there, as suggested by the game’s title. If you can afford it, shelling out the 50 Robux for a private server is well worth it, as playing on a public server with up to 29 randoms can be a bit distracting.

So help me, I love a good trip to the SCP Foundation, so even though I already included Escape the Facility in our list of the greatest Roblox games in 2021, I’m going to mention it again here. Newer versions to Flee the Facility have included a number of new maps, including a cabin in the woods setting appropriate for the gameplay’s debt to the likes of Dead By Daylight and Friday the 13th. The initial visual of Flee the Facility was very significantly evocative to SCP – Containment Breach.

Piggy by MiniToon

Several people have told me that I can’t create a terrifying Peppa Pig-themed game on Roblox because of the platform’s lack of support for episodic horror games with multiplayer. Those people, whomever they are, are mistaken, because Piggy has just finished its second season and is still one of the most played scary games on Roblox. You and your other players are not just trying to flee from Piggy, but also trying to figure out what it is.
