Roblox is filled with thousands of different games that cover many different genres, themes, and interests. There are even games out there that parody popular television shows and other video games. Whether you are looking for tycoon games or roleplaying servers, Roblox is sure to have plenty of fun to explore. To celebrate this Halloween season, let’s take a look at the top 10 scariest Roblox games out there.
All of the games featured in this list include horror elements of flashing lights, jumpscares, and loud noises that may not suit all players!
Resurgence is a story-heavy horror game that focuses on the player trying to escape an abandoned hospital. You follow apparent objectives as you navigate through the maze of a building with only a flashlight to light the way. While the game does not have as many jumpscares as some entries on this list, it has a constant dark and creepy atmosphere that will leave you on the edge of your seat. It features two chapters and a bonus maze mode for you to explore and experience. You can play Resurgence here.
The Facility, created at the end of 2020, is a work-in-progress horror game in Roblox. You, alongside other players, must venture around the facility. Using the axe in your inventory, you need to break through doorways to search for a key card that you use to escape. While searching for the card, you are constantly chased by a monster and must avoid it at all costs. According to its Roblox page, the game is currently undergoing “major changes”, so the content added in the future will impact how scary the game is. You can play Facility here.
Created at the beginning of 2019, the Roblox horror game SCP-3008 has players trying to survive inside an IKEA. Unlike several entries on this list, 3008 is not as dark and dreary as other entries, and the map is much more open. Rather than being in a small, enclosed space where you don’t know what will be around the corner, you instead feel an increasing sense of fear over knowing that you are trapped in the store with no way of escaping. You can play 3008 here.
One of the most popular and well-known Roblox horror games out there is Piggy. Released at the end of 2020, Piggy has two “books” and several chapters within them that provide players with plenty of scary content to explore during this Halloween season. While some may not find the cartoonish, murderous pigs fearsome, others may find them to be some of the scariest creatures out there. You must run around the map and escape within the time limit, all while being chased by a baseball-wielding pig. Collecting keys and other items will help you unlock doors and lead you to victory. You can play Piggy here.
6. It Lurks
Unlike several entries in this list, It Lurks is a single-player horror game where you have to escape from your own house. While sleeping, you wake up to an emergency broadcast warning you to remain inside your home. Once you leave and explore the map, you will start being chased by a monster lurking around the house. This monster, alongside other visual and sound effects throughout the game, makes It Lurks one of the more jumpscare-heavy games on this list. You can play It Lurks here.
5. The Maze
The Maze is a small but scare-filled game that is particularly scary for those that do not like enclosed spaces. Alongside other players, you spawn outside near a trailer and must venture inside of a dark, gloomy cave. Within this cave, you will find several monsters that you must hide from. The small, claustrophobic space within the cave creates many opportunities to be jumpscared by these enemies. The game is currently in an early state, according to the game’s Roblox page, so there may be updates that impact how much scarier the game will become. You can play The Maze here.
Created in mid-2021, the world of JUDY includes an abandoned theme park that you and your friends must explore. You will encounter numerous maze-like corridors, grotesque imagery, and even a horrifying doll throughout the park. The jumpscares featured in this game are some of the most shocking and unexpected games on this list. If you are looking for a more intense horror game to play with friends in Roblox, JUDY will be right up your alley. You can play JUDY here.
3. The Mimic
Created in early-2021, The Mimic features four different stories based on Japanese history and urban legends. The map and the monsters you will encounter will depend on which story you pick, giving you numerous opportunities to find an exciting, scary experience. If you are seeking variety in your Roblox Halloween games, The Mimic is among the top ones out there. There is also a Halloween event underway this October that will help get you and your Roblox friends in the scary holiday spirit. You can play The Mimic here.
One of the more complex games on this list is Geisha. Released recently in mid-2021, Geisha is based on the Japanese urban legend “teke-teke”. With multiple puzzles to solve and numerous jump scares, Geisha challenges you to explore your own home while searching for your lost family. The terrifying nature of Geisha combined with its unique design creates an experience that you will not find in many other Roblox games. It is undoubtedly one of the scariest and most fascinating games out there, placing it near the top of this list. You can play Geisha here.
1. Dead Silence
Dead Silence is placed at the top of our list of the scariest Roblox games to play this Halloween. As the oldest game on this list, Dead Silence has a long-standing reputation as one of the most well-known and scariest Roblox games out there. Created in 2011, Dead Silence is based on a horror movie of the same name, and you must discover the legend of Mary Shaw with up to 3 other players. While Dead Silence’s jumpscares are not as obvious or frequent as other entries in this list, the dark and eerie atmosphere always present as you search the map for keys leaves players in a constant state of anxiousness and fear. The art style and map design are also less cartoony than many other games out there, adding to the immersion as you explore the map and solve the various puzzles scattered around the dark rooms.
This carefully crafted experience has stood the test of time for over ten years in the Roblox community. For that reason, Dead Silence is considered by many to be one of the top games to play, not just during Halloween but any time of year. You can play Dead Silence here.
