So It is getting around that time of the year and I am getting in the mood to scare. So that begs the question, What really scares you? This is for games of course, what could happen in a game, specifically RM games that make you jump, cringe, cower or just itch with anticipation? I'd like to see some of these ideas implemented as well, so tell up!
I'll go first: For me, one of the creepiest thing a game can have is music and sound effects unless image flashes on-screen, sure jump scares get me and I have anticipation for scares as well, but what sets off that anticipation is good creepy music, or sound effects that are subtle and creepy at the same time.
First person game set on the night, without music or sounds. That at least used to be only way I found being actually somewhat scared but that was years ago. I have since then played many horror games which claim to be scary but have just gave me some tension.
Now one could ask why no music and sounds? For me being on 100% quiet environment for long time is not natural unless I'm going to sleep.
