Indie Horror Games That Will Really Freak You Out - Lone Survivor

These games will make Five Nights At Freddie's feel like a walk in the park. 

4. Lone Survivor

Lone Survivor may not seem terrifying at first glance based on its charming pixelated art style, but once you dive in, you’ll see why it’s one of the best indie horror games on the market. In the game, you play as a nameless character who encapsulates the definition of “lone survivor,” as they are seemingly the only living member of the human race after a plague wipes out most people and turns them into zombies.

As you progress through the game, you’ll eventually encounter other survivors who can be either friendly and helpful, or harbor malevolent intentions. Your in-game choices determine how well your character keeps from going insane, which is easy to do considering what the character is forced to endure. The horror comes from the setting and overall gruesome imagery, with a few chase sequences thrown in for good measure.
