Best Horror Games on Roblox (May 2024)

We’d be lying if we said that we resorted to Roblox to get our horror fix, what with it harboring far more family-friendly simulation-type experiences than anything else. With that said, we’d also be lying if we said that we didn’t share a soft spot for a select few of its games, in particular. Granted, it isn’t known for its lineage of thrillers and nail-biting psychosocial depictions, but it is, however, in receipt of a couple that scratch that itch. But, which of them are actually worth checking out? Well, if you are on the hunt for a good old-fashioned horror, albeit one with slightly more blocks than lifelike bruises, then be sure to read on for a few recommendations.

5. Dead Silence

We’ve touched base on Dead Silence a handful of times over the years, and for good reason, too. Atmospherically, it stands in receipt of one of the most impressive soundscapes on Roblox, and not to mention a tapestry of genuinely hard-hitting jump scares that are thrice as effective when experienced alone and in the dead of night. Sure, its storyline is a little barebones, but that doesn’t dampen the overall quality of the experience, what with it having double the amount of keystone moments and memorable encounters.

Dead Silence throws you into the thick of a mystery surrounding the disappearance of several missing people, all of whom just so happen to share one thing in common: a connection to a sewer. It’s your job, as an investigator of sorts, to plunge into the network, and make heads or tails of its hidden secrets. Spoiler alert: you aren’t the only one who’s able to roam the corridors. With that, you can expect plenty of chilling frights and harrowing moments, all of which pay tribute to the legend of Mary Shaw.

4. It Lurks

If it’s a Slender-like clone that you’re after, then be sure to give It Lurks a shot, as it’s more or less the same thing, only with a different array of creatures. Alas, there are no torn pages to be found, but there is, however, an unsettling disturbance that lingers between the tree line and the seemingly invisible exit point, of which you must locate in order to remove the shackles that prevent you from fleeing. In this world, the dead of night is a horrifying time, and it’s your duty to make sure that you’re a few field goals away before the stars align.

It Lurks allows up to twenty players to immerse in its wooded locale for a series of terrifying trials, most of which revolve around having to search for safe routes out of the dark, as well as keeping a lookout for a nearby stalker that looms in the shadows. Again, think Slender: The Eight Pages, and you’ll have a rough idea of what it aims to encapsulate.

3. Frigid Dusk

Remember SCP: Containment Breach, and how it had you picking through the bones of a research facility to unmask the truths behind its tainted experiments? Well, Frigid Dusk isn’t all that different, in the case that, story-wise, your primary objective is to venture deep into the desolate corridors of an old lab, and unravel the mysteries behind its creatures. But there’s one major drawback to all of this: those creatures aren’t quite as accepting and as accommodating to newcomers as its creators once let on, which means you’ll need to keep your wits about you as you brave the dark and ominous depths of the facility.

Like the vast majority of Roblox horrors, Frigid Dusk relies on ambient lighting and jump scares to shape its image. It doesn’t necessarily boast a compelling storyline, which is a shame, but where it lacks in depth, it makes up for in bone-butchering sound effects and quality level design. For these reasons, it’s certainly worth taking a quick look at.

2. The Intruder

As the title implies, The Intruder is all about, well, an intruder, and their questionable tendencies to slip through the dark corners of occupied homes and essentially slaughter anyone in their line of sight. As you can probably guess, you aren’t the intruder in this situation, but rather, an unknowing homeowner whose only purpose is to keep the riffraff out by any means necessary. In other words, checking cameras to make sure that they’re not in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The Intruder isn’t all that different from Five Nights at Freddy’s, mainly due to the fact that, gameplay-wise, your primary objective is to spool through camera feeds, check doors, and switch on various lights and other devices. It comes as no major surprise there, then, that it’s also absolutely filled to the brim with jump scares and ill-timed attacks. Sure enough, it’s likely to give you the chills — especially if you’re playing at night and without the aid of other players.

1. Doors

Once again, we’re willing to give Doors the top spot as one of, if not the best horror game on RobloxUnlike other games of its kind, most of which tend to stray in and out of the spotlight every so often, Doors retains a permanent position on the market, as it will likely continue to do so for the next several years or more, thanks to its creators continuously adding new levels and updates to its core blueprint.

As the title suggests, Doors is all about seeing how far you can travel before running into an entity of some sort. There are hundreds of rooms to explore, few of which contain simple puzzles, and others that house deadly foes that’ll do all in their power to scare you senseless and send you fleeting for the exit point. It’s a classic game of cat and mouse, and it’ll certainly keep you on your toes, that’s for sure.


So, what’s your take? Will you be picking up any of the above five Roblox horror games at any point this month? Let us know your thoughts over on our socials here.
