So play through all the games in Mystery Case Files pack to encompass the whole story or find it bundled in Haunted Horrors – 15 Pack if there are other spooky tales you wish to explore.
Dark Mysteries: The Soul Keeper – For the Lovers of Lovecraft Stories
Our second pick feeds off your fear.. and something more! Charles Dexter Ward has summoned you to the island of Pawtuxet to stop a renegade spirit that is murdering the townspeople. As it turns out, the spirit is using human souls to become immortal, and you will be next if you can’t stop him!
Based on the novel by H.P. Lovecraft, this hidden object puzzle adventure game will test your investigative skills as you solve the mysteries of Ward’s family and complete the ritual that will banish this evil spirit once and for all! Find it in the Best of Moonlight Mysteries – 10 Pack or Greatest Hits – 10 Pack!
Scarlett Mysteries: Cursed Child – For the Haunted Mansion Explorers
From Terrifying Tales Vol.3 – 10 Pack and Best of Artifex Mundi – 3 Pack, Scarlett Mysteries: Cursed Child tells the story of Scarlett Everitt searching for answers in a old, creaky Victorian manor as to why her father left her in an orphanage “to protect her from the darkness”. With a gift for seeing the paranormal, ghosts, and visions of the past, she’ll soon discover that the huge house hides terrifying secrets and dreadful mysteries.
A+ on the creep factor! This game delivers perfectly on the chilling feeling of wandering through a haunted mansion as ghosts stalk you from above. The puzzles are very creative too! Overall, you can’t go wrong with a great mystery, solid gameplay, and strong dark theming.
Royal Legends: Marshes Curse CE – For the Bad Witches
We’ve recommended three games involving ghosts so far so let’s take a look at some other monsters like an evil witch and her curses in Royal Legends: Marshes Curse CE! Featured in the Best of Domini – 3 Pack and the Haunted Horrors – 15 Pack, this game centers around your mission to stop the ever growing witch threat plaguing the town of Libertyville. People are missing, someone’s dead in the town square, and murmurs blame the late Swamp Witch who’s hell-bent on revenge!
While this game is not the scariest, its theme and story are incredibly strong and it would be terrible not to include it in our list! Plus, there’s always room for a classic witchy tale! Enjoy the minigames and mysteries. Royal Legends: Marshes Curse CE is certainly one you don’t want to miss!
The Beast of Lycan Isle – For the Beasts Inside All of Us
Coming in at number 5 is our pick, The Beast of Lycan Isle, from the Supernatural Stories Vol.5 – 5 Pack and Best of Paranormal Mysteries – 10 Pack! Luna goes to the isle to discover evidence of the legendary cult of the Madra Alta… or Wolf Man. However, she might have gotten too close to the truth because due to her snooping, her best friend Tara has been kidnapped! It’s up to you to explore the island, uncover its secrets, find the cult, save Tara, and tame the Mad Wolf King!
This game’s gameplay sways more toward a point-n-click adventure game, giving you a fun, different, and new immersive experience! Solve puzzles and explore as much as you can all while trying to avoid the hair-raising werewolf that’s searching the isle in pursuit of nosy, unwanted visitors. Pray that the beastly Mad Wolf King doesn’t find you this chilly moonlit night! AwooOOoOOoo!
Looking for more? Check our recommendations from last year: Stormhill Mysteries: Family Shadows, Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride, and all the Nightmares from the Deep games!
And if you prefer something less scary but still just as sinister in theming, try out the Match 3 game, Save Halloween: City of Witches, found in Magical Matches Vol.3 – 10 Pack for some cute and spooky fun!
Happy gaming! With love from the Legacy Games Ghouls 👹
