Although Roblox probably isn’t the first place that comes to mind when you think of horror and survival games, there are some fairly amazing alternatives available on the site. You should be aware, though, that they lean more toward surreal settings and are relatively low on blood and violence because Roblox caters to a younger demographic.
Joining a random room on Roblox, moving about, and figuring out the rules of a game with a group of strangers who are just as bewildered as you is part of the excitement. It’s like everyone’s working on a group project, but nobody’s doing their part of the homework—the most horrifying scenario possible, just in time for Halloween!
You may, of course, play some of the games on this list by yourself or with a predetermined group of friends; also, there is a possibility that some of the strangers will be familiar with the rules of each game; nevertheless, these types of activities offer a milder kind of entertainment. Try not to look. Join unrelated server groups. Take pleasure in the mayhem.
There are video games on this list that were inspired by urban legends, such as 3008 which took information from the Secure, Protect, and Contain wiki and Apeirophobia which took its inspiration directly from The Backrooms. Additionally, this list contains video games based on the following themes, which are not listed in any particular order: Peppa the Pig; doors; clowns; and supermarkets. The following are descriptions of six terrifying games that may be found on Roblox.
Doors is a survival-horror game in which, yep, you open a staggering amount of doors during the game. In the lobby, there are elevators labeled with the minimum number of players required to start a game.
This number might be two or four people, and once the required number of players has entered the elevator, the game will commence. Your mission is to unlock the numbered doors, some of which may be locked, and search through the drawers for any keys or other things that may be hidden within.
As danger approaches, you can take cover in one of the many hiding places, such as a wooden closet, which are dispersed across the environment. On the other hand, there is a time restriction on how long you may remain concealed. If you stay in a closet for too long, you will be evicted against your will and suffer damage to your health.
3008 is a video game that takes place in an unsettlingly endless IKEA, where employees of the store will try to find and kill you at night. The entry for SCP-3008 in the Secure, Contain, Protect wiki, which is a massive collaborative and crowd-sourced fictional project comprising of bizarre and otherworldly locales, is the direct source of inspiration for this article. It just so happens that SCP-3008 is an IKEA warehouse, complete with imprisoned citizens and frightening humanoid personnel who say at night, “The shop is now closed, please evacuate the building.”
You are a civilian who has been trapped, and you have hunger, stamina, and health bars. During the daytime, you should be able to search the region for food and medical supplies. If they feel the need to, other players can lend you a hand by giving you access to the resources they have stored.
Getting your body pummeled by two customer service employees who are hunting you down is a pretty entertaining experience, which is why the 3008 experience comes highly recommended.
It has nothing to do with the horror film of the same name, is an adaptation of four Japanese short stories that are both terrifying and mysterious. Just the first “book,” titled “Control,” has had its whole made available to the public so far (the creation of the second book’s second chapter has been put on hold owing to the development of another game), and the story takes place in a sinister high school.
There are game modes that are not canon, such as the Nightmare Circus event that was added very recently for Halloween. In it, a psychotic clown is for your life, and because you don’t want to give it to him, you have to flee and hide from him. In order to complete Nightmare Circus, you will need to solve other riddles and do additional activities, but those won’t be revealed here.
Panik places you in a game in which you have the opportunity to be pursued by a Walmart—or rather, a Wobmart robot employee. While this isn’t quite as thrilling as being killed by an Ikea employee, it’s still very exciting. In order to successfully flee from Wobmart, you will need to collect the products that are required by the three distinct scanners that are located at various points around the store. There is a possibility that a homicidal robot employee is hiding in the aisles, but getting away from it shouldn’t be too difficult.
As part of the game’s multiplayer component, you have the option to play for the corporate America squad and disrupt the efforts of other players by driving them into the robot and sacrificing them to it. Alternately, there is a player option in addition to the bot mode, which allows a random player to take over the role of Happy the robot. This mode is available only if you truly want to perform the killing yourself.
Piggy is similar to the cartoon pig Peppa but is far more dangerous. It’s another one of those games where players have to figure out riddles and look for stuff in order to get away from a Peppa-like pig that’s out to kill them. There is a bot version, a player version, and a third setting that is a mix of the player and the bot version. In the version played by bots, a bot is assigned the role of the antagonist, but in the version played by players, a player at random is picked to assume the role of the killer. The difficulty of the game is increased when it is played in a setup where a player and a bot take turns acting as murderers.
Piggy also has other game types (Backrooms Game) including infection, in which a player’s death results in their joining the player who killed them as a new foe in the game. There is also a mode called Traitor, in which a player takes on the role of a traitor, and their objective is to ensure that every other player dies. This mode is quite similar to the imposters in Among Us.
