Roblox accommodates all kinds of activities, including scary and horrifying games that get your adrenaline pumping. With the game creation kit easily accessible, players have gone to great lengths, creating some really terrifying experiences. Even popular titles have been recreated in Roblox’s recognizable style.

We’ve compiled a list of the 10 best scary and horrifying games in Roblox. Whether you’re playing with friends or by yourself, be sure to turn the lights out for the best experience.

Piggy Traitor Mode

Piggy was already a hit for being a horrifying take on Peppa Pig. You and a handful of other players have to escape from a player-controlled creature, Piggy. Everyone else is a survivor. Piggy Traitor Mode adds tension and paranoid to the mix by picking one player and making them a traitor. They aren’t necessarily working with Piggy and can be killed like the other survivors. As a traitor, killing other survivors is your job. You win if you can outlive the others.

Dead Silence

Dead Silence creates a horror environment with a story. Mary Shaw has been a long time myth, her stare drawing a lot of attention and mystery. If you were unlucky to come face to face with Mary Shaw, it’s best you don’t scream. As an investigator, it’s up to you to unravel the myth. Is Mary Shaw truly an entity? What happens if she catches you? That’s for you to find out.

Up to three players can play, but for maximum horror, stick to single-player.

Horror Elevator

Creepypastas have given birth to the likes of Slender Man and the Rake. Horror Elevator forces players to confront creatures from both creepypastas and popular horror franchises, like Jason Voorhees. With 30 different floors, you either live long enough to survive or die.

The Roblox Plague 2

When you’re sick, it’s best to keep your distance from other people. Those you come in contact with could potentially get sick too. Roblox Plague 2 decides you should do the exact opposite. Do you have the Roblox plague? Spread it as much as you can. If not, survive as long as you can and be the last one standing.

Not only is Roblox Plague 2 one of the best horror games in Roblox, but it can also be a teaching tool. The game’s mechanic is a great way of showing others why social distancing is necessary, especially during a pandemic.

Nightmare Mine

Nightmare Mine introduces a large mining facility being overrun by what are essentially zombies. They were once miners, important members of Robloxia with families and friends, turned to husks of their former selves after mining the surrounding black rocks. It’s up to you to stop more of these creatures from spreading and escaping with your life.

Zombie Rush

While Nightmare Mine relies on escaping, Zombie Rush takes a similar concept but with action. Waves of zombies will rush you, and the means to take them out are scattered throughout each level. You survive by taking out every last zombie around you.

Before the Dawn

In Before the Dawn, the objective is simple: survive until dawn. Of course, that also means it won’t be a walk in the park, not with a slasher on the loose. Completing each challenge as quickly as possible will ensure you stay ahead. Are you willing to help your fellow survivors, or is it every man for himself?

Murder Mystery 2

Horror isn’t all about jump scares and monsters. Sometimes it’s all about paranoia. Murder Mystery 2 introduces fear on a more down to Earth style, rather than pit you against beasts of the night.

You are either the sheriff, the murderer, or an innocent bystander. Each role gives you a unique mission. For example, playing as an innocent person means you need to hide from the murderer. As for the sheriff, it’s up to you to catch the murderer before he or she kills everyone.

The Haunted Imperial Hotel

The Imperial Hotel has seen better days. What was once prime real estate is being replaced with what appears to be Mother Earth swallowing the hotel whole. Is nature reclaiming the surrounding land, or are the rumors true about a gateway to Hell itself?

Slender Man’s Revenge Reborn

Playing Slender Man’s Revenge Reborn is an exercise in survival. The game relies heavily on darkness to mask you, other players, and Slender Man. The objective: find pages hidden throughout the darkened landscape.
