Top 5 Indie Games with Halloween Updates & Events

Halloween is here, literally. It’s today, and I am sure you’ll still be in the Halloween spirit this weekend! Whether you are too old to go out trick or treating or not, there are plenty of games that currently have festive, limited time events for you to enjoy through their Halloween updates or events. We’ve picked out a bunch we love the sound of to share with you.

Deep Rock Galactic

Deep Rock Galactic passes you a shotgun, pickaxe and a whole load of flares before pointing at a nearby cavern and suggesting you acquire a quota of particular minerals and ores if you want to keep your job. One more thing, the game says in a voice not entirely unlike J.K. Simmons’, watch out for the giant alien insect creatures that live in these caves, they can get a bit rowdy at you running around drilling hole in their walls and wrecking the furniture they just finished paying off.

Halloween Update Additions:

From October 28th at 10AM UTC+1 to November 4th at 10AM UTC+1, you will be able to wear and kick pumpkins which have been added to the game, go trick or treating inside caves (who knows what kind of space candy you might find!)  and enjoy some general decorations that fit the Halloween theme. Kicking pumpkins, though simple, is really quite fun.


Dicey Dungeons

Dicey Dungeons already has an entertaining premise with lots of variations and surprises to keep you coming back for more, but it has to be Chipzel’s perfectly bopping soundtrack that makes the joy of revisiting these demanding dungeons worth it over and over again. Her music, when paired with Marlowe Dobbe’s dreamy storybook-like artwork, excels in making each perilous adventure as cute as it is difficult. Dicey Dungeons serves as an exciting, wonderfully crafted dungeon-delving game that I can easily recommend for all ages, where each run feels like a new adventure with treasures and danger at every turn.

Halloween Update Additions:

Playable NOW until November 4th, you can find three new enemies that go back into hiding after the holiday is over, as well as a bunch of spooky graphics, music, and Halloween costumes for your dice and enemies (everyone wants to get in on the spooky spirit). The Warrior, Inventor, and Witch episode also has a bunch of changes to the basic game, adding a new challenge for you to take on for just one week.


Superhot

It’s a bold, beautiful, artistic, innovative, annoyingly likeable hipster who not just sports an excellent beard and man bun, but can also shoot, skin and cook a Grizzly Bear. Wait, no. Sorry. That was nonsense. It’s actually more like the kind of rare game that is both entirely comfortable in its own skin, and entirely competent by any other measure. It’s more than competent in fact; it is exceptional. It looks amazing, it plays almost perfectly and it is incredibly rewarding when you succeed, with relatively little frustration factor if you don’t.

Halloween Update Additions:

Though they don’t seem to have an actual update log that explains this event, or any announcement videos, it seems like from October 24th to November 7th, you are able to wear giant pumpkin heads. These heads look so fully and are a pretty cool addition to an already wonderful game.


Monster Prom

While it certainly isn’t for everybody. If you enjoy trying to bed a party ghost while your friend is failing to seduce an elder god then Monster Prom will keep your interest for a long while. It’s the perfect game to put on with all your terrible friends to enjoy with. Now, if you excuse me I have a very good boy werewolf to seduce.

Halloween Update Additions:

Monster Prom is already pretty perfect for Halloween. It’s a game about dating monsters, after all. But, due to the spooky season, they’ve released another plot line called Ghost Story, which is the largest plot line to date, with various events within it. This is the main, new, Halloween-related feature, though they also have released some updated outfits and an update to their modding tool.


Farm Together

Halloween Update

Farm Together, by Milkstone Studios, looks like a cuter version of Farmville, as though somebody wanted to take the classic PC version, make it better, and have you roam around a huge, almost never-ending farm. You’ve got a lot you can do with your plot of land, but it does take quite a bit of time to really get the game going.

Halloween Update Additions:

From now until November 6th, you can plant Cursed Pumpkins to unlock loads of items for your character and your farm, that you then can keep year round, in case you want to make a spooky haunted house that always is featured on your farm.
