If you find yourself at a loss for what to do on your lunch break or even fancy a cheeky escape during work itself – tut tut – perhaps you should head over to GameShed. There’s a whole array of delightful, horrifying games including Catharis; which is set in a psychedelic nightmare world, Slendytubbies; a great twist on the terrifying Slender which will prevent you from seeing those loveable Teletubbies in the same way ever again and Killing Moon; which is set during a Halloween party where you play a guy called Ash (groovy!). You can also play this one on your phone or tablet, which is handy if you’re on-the-go. If you like escape games, then we recommend Cube Escape: The Mill, We had a lot of frustrating fun with that one and there’s a walkthrough if you get a bit stuck. But that’s cheating, of course.
The games are all short and sweet; you can probably finish most of them in under an hour, but they don’t hold back on the jump scares. We don’t recommend playing them before bed unless you enjoy waking up in a cold sweat, convinced you’re being chased by zombies.
