To celebrate Spooktober, we’re going to play games with a Horror tag. Because some of us are scaredy cats, a game doesn’t have to be scary to qualify. If it’s not tagged as Horror, but features things related to Halloween (costumes, witches, ghosts, skeletons, pumpkins, halloween events, etc.) it still counts as related to the monthly theme.
To participate, reply to this post and tell us which games that fit the monthly theme you’re going to play.
Have a spooktacular Halloween!
You can use the following (or similar) format to make it easier for everyone’s progress to be tracked, but feel free to add any extra thoughts about the game(s) to your post!
name of game 1 | achievements obtained | playtime this month | unfinished/finished name of game 2 | achievements obtained | playtime this month | unfinished/finished name of game 3 | achievements obtained | playtime this month | unfinished/finished total: | achievements obtained | playtime this month | Number of games finished
Do I have to participate in this month’s theme?
No, as with every theme, these are merely suggestions for anyone who is unsure about what to play next. If you already have a battle plan for your backlog and/or don’t like this month’s theme, you’re free to ignore it.
What happens if I don’t participate in the monthly theme?
What happens if I play all of my unfinished games this month?
Your backlog will be a much smaller place.
I don’t have any unfinished games - I’ve beaten everything I’ve started.
Really? well that makes one of us… I salute you.
I already finished my entry can I play another?
Go ahead - the goal is to reduce your unfinished games list. The more you can play the better.
I’ve nearly beaten a game can I still use it as my entry?
|Judgment||29/47 (-17)||56.9 h (-38 h)||beaten||costumes|
|Frog Detective 3: Corruption at Cowboy County||3/6||1.5 h||beaten||graveyard location|
|TOTAL:||15/36||20.4 h||2 games beaten|
|Dying Light 2 Stay Human||0/57||0h||Not started|
It has been some time (year(s) even) since I last actively participated in this. However, since Spooktober is my busiest time of year, I may as well join this at least. This isn’t even counting non-steam games. May be making further additions.

Ideas for more games: Little Nightmares, Oxenfree, Sea of Solitude, Pinstripe, Among the Sleep
I played a game this month! Unlike September, I played a game this month…one from my Itching to Play list, no less. There’s a small chance I’ll be able to squeeze in a small game on an plane ride, but most likely this is it.

First. Time for the sequel to Spooky Scary Skatrzoos.
You’re always so fast
Thanks, I try my best.
If only you used a fraction of the effort to actually tackle your backlog
I wouldn’t wanna obliterate it that badly, the backlog hasn’t won against me in any month of 2022.
