From the moment #HorrorGameOct started, the ooky spooky enthusiasts came out in droves. What a productive month for the Community Game Along! Not only did we break the record for most participants playing one game for one month with 27 participants for the game Phasmophobia, but we also got the most video content for one theme than any other theme we've had. Like the #JRPGJuly line-up, it would be much easier to archive the social and game pages rather than attempting to write up a traditional round-up. So here we go!
So many videos, so many let's plays, and so much video editing representation for one month. Please check out the social link if you're looking for some horror game enthusiasts to check out, and possibly subscribe to. And let's not forget the articles, and even some game creators writing and promoting their original material under the #HorrorGameOct tag.
ALMOST breaking the JRPGJuly record for most games played for one theme, but we still had over 100 different games played for a single theme, including the record breaking Phasmophobia. I have a feeling that the Phasmophobia record will be haunting the record books for a long time.
If you want to see all the games played, and possibly find other like-minded gamers like yourself, check out the full list RIGHT HERE!
It's no surprise that #HorrorGameOct was a big as it was. The horror genre can terrify, or it can provide a ghoulish but charming aesthetic, all on the spookiest time of the year. And with 2020 keeping a majority of us in-doors, it's good to see people using #HorrorGameOct as a way to amplify their horror needs.
