The best scary Roblox games (January 2022)

The best scary Roblox games

Speaking as someone who used to play a lot of Garry’s Mod, the skill with which people utilize simple game tool sets to create genuinely unsettling horror games simultaneously astounds and terrifies me. It’s like making a puppet show scary, and believe me, it is completely possible to make a puppet show scary if you know what you’re doing like the Roblox community does. Here are some of the best scary Roblox games.

The best scary Roblox games are:

  • The Mimic
  • Murder Mystery 2
  • Breaking Point
  • It Lurks
  • The Asylum
  • Dead Silence
  • The Maze
  • The Darkness Beyond
  • Evelyn
  • The Nightmare
The best scary Roblox games - The Mimic

The Mimic

One tends to assume that things we see with our eyes are obviously what they look like. A potted plant, a chair, a sandwich; there’s no way those innocuous things could be horrible monsters… could they? In The Mimic, you’re on the run from just such a monster, searching labyrinthine buildings for clues and items while an unseen horror pursues you from just outside your line of sight. Hope you’ve got your running shoes on.

The best scary Roblox games - Murder Mystery 2

Murder Mystery 2

Who doesn’t love a classic whodunit mystery? Well, the person who was killed, I imagine, but we gotta sacrifice for our art sometimes. In Murder Mystery 2, one player among the crowd is a secret killer, and it’s their job to snuff the whole party out without getting caught. Meanwhile, the rest of the group will need to keep their eyes and ears peeled for clues and tells in order to solve the mystery. Remember kids, this is why we use the buddy system.

Murder Mystery 2 has been a contender for the most popular Roblox games in 2021.

The best scary Roblox games - The Nightmare

The Nightmare

Speaking of murder mysteries, The Nightmare ranks up there as one of the best scary Roblox horrors games of the year. Taking inspiration from Among Us, players must hide from the murders and complete tasks to make an escape when the exit doors open. There are seven possible tasks in total to complete. The murderer in each game has a special power that they can use to try and find you faster, so be careful. Be sure to check out our The Nightmare codes page for some free in-game money!

Best Scary Roblox Games - Breaking Point

Breaking Point

One of the signature elements of an enclosed murder mystery is that, once everyone’s been trapped for a while, things start getting tense. People get paranoid. Everyone looks like an enemy. You’ll have to play it smart in Breaking Point, where everyone is potentially out to get you. Unlike other murder mystery games, there are additional wrinkles in this game, such as gun misfires and knife fights. Let’s see if your luck’s as strong as your wits.

The best scary Roblox games - It Lurks

It Lurks

Your own home should, in theory, be the safest place you can be. Of course, that’s operating on the assumption that you’re the only one who can get into your home, and that you’re the only one currently in it. In It Lurks, you are most definitely not the only one in your home. You’ll have to hide and survive as someone (or something) pursues you through a multi-chapter story.

The best scary Roblox games - The Asylum

The Asylum

Y’know, it’s a really good thing the old insane asylum system has long since been retired. Not just because it was cruel and inhumane and all that, but also because I don’t think the world can handle any more haunted insane asylums than it already has. In The Asylum, you assume the role of an explorer scoping out one such abandoned asylum (because apparently, you’ve never seen a horror movie in your life), and find yourself embroiled in the mystery of the horrors that once went on, and what horrors may still remain.

The best scary Roblox games - Dead Silence

Dead Silence

Have you ever seen 2007’s Dead Silence? Y’know, Ryan Kwanten, evil ventriloquist dummies? Made by the same folks who made the Saw movies? Well, if you have seen it, then good news, you know what you’re in for with Dead Silence, because it’s inspired by that movie. You and up to three friends must unravel the mystery of dollmaker Mary Shaw, and the string of horrifying murders that follow her legacy.

The Maze

Whenever the topic of mazes comes up, you always get that one smart-aleck who thinks he can solve the whole thing by just making left turns. Well, hypothetical smart-aleck, how are you gonna make left turns when you’re being pursued by unspeakable terrors through a maze that’s constantly growing tighter and more claustrophobic? ‘Cause that’s what you’re in for in The Maze, and I’ll tell you for free that the answer isn’t “more left turns.”

The Darkness Beyond

Humans have a primal fear of the dark. Light is comforting, nourishing, revealing, whereas the dark is obscuring, confusing, and stifling. You never know what’s coming for you from out of the dark depths, but in The Darkness Beyond, something is definitely out there. Patrol your home and keep all of the windows and doors closed, because as soon as whatever’s out there has an avenue to be in with you, it’ll take it.


When all else fails, you can usually get a good horror vibe with a single classic ingredient: creepy little girls. As far as creepy little girl stories go, the death of young Evelyn certainly ranks up there. This game makes surprisingly proficient use of Roblox’s seemingly harmless design, turning it into a genuinely unsettling atmospheric thriller. It even has multiple endings!
