Am I only writing about horror games? Maybeee?
Well, I am putting up some indie spooky games featured on the current sale that I have either played myself or planning to get! To make it easier I will place them in different categories: spooky, scary, poop-pants, unkown territory (meaning, I don't know how scary they are yet and mean to play them!). I will not be reviewing the games on this post, due to the amount of them. Just highlighting some interesting deals!
These games are not of the horror genre, or are not that scary, but can definitely get you into the Halloween spirit!

SOMA is a sci-fi horror game from Frictional Games, the creators of Amnesia: The Dark Descent. It is an unsettling story about identity, consciousness, and what it means to be human.

There is a broker wanting to put the house for sale, but with everyone in the town spreading rumors of evil living inside the house, he needs some proof that it is safe. He actually seems creeped out himself. Anyway, he hired PAH Inc. to check the place out. You can go check it out alone if you'd like, but I would take at least 3 more friends with me. Check the place out, and if there is anything supernatural going on, try to bring evidence back to PAH Inc.

Remothered: Tormented Fathers
Price: 7.99€ (60% discount) Steam link
Remothered: Tormented Fathers is the pure and realistic survival horror videogame. A game by Darril Arts, directed by Chris Darril, developed by Stormind Games.
Psychology plays a huge role within the game: heroes and enemies are atypical and the line between good and evil is blurred. The plot is rich of unpredictable twists, but it is touching at the same time. The development of the game is similar to that of a film narration, where the player perfectly identifies himself with the character. The soundtrack, composed by Nobuko Toda (Final Fantasy, Halo, Metal Gear Solid) and Luca Balboni, enhances the terrifying atmosphere of the game.
