Awards & Recognition
“[SPOOKWARE] promises a horrifying roadtrip filled with tiny, off-the-wall micro-games and I’m absolutely shotgunning the front seat.”
– Ed Thorn (Rock Paper Shotgun)
“I’ve been playing SPOOKWARE the last few days and I’m really into the absurd silliness and horror homages found in both the adventure itself and the mini-games.”
– Neil Bolt (Bloody Disgusting)
“SPOOKWARE is such a clear distillation of what makes the previous Dread X Collections, and independent horror as a whole, so fascinating: they reimagine horror as joyous experimentation.”
– Renata Price (Kotaku)

Sure, we’ve all heard about living life to its fullest … but what about death?! In SPOOKWARE, join three skelebros (Lefti, Midi, and Righti) on a grand road trip – and play hundreds of handcrafted, fast-paced, horror-inspired microgames along the way. Each episode includes three chapters with their own areas, microgames, mechanics, and stories. Challenge yourself with a wide collection of blazing fast microgames built around horror tropes – more than 60 in the first episode alone. Each microgame takes only a few seconds – so be sure to use your wits to survive the onslaught of wildly different, blood-curdling experiences.
However, this isn’t JUST a bunch of microgames mushed together. Blending arcade-style microgame medleys with classic adventure games, each microgame is carefully interwoven within the story. And every area features completely new gameplay mechanics to test your microgame skills – going as far as changing up control schemes!
- 60+ handcrafted, blood-pumping, horror-inspired microgames in the first episode – with more than 200 to come!
- 3.5 chapters (we count the intro as a half) with their own story and adventure – with many more to come…
- Play as 3 adorable skeleton brothers Lefti, Midi, and Righti.
- Unique gameplay mechanics for every area – from rhythm to puzzle games.
- Remix all your unlocked microgames for the ultimate challenge.
- At least 7 skeleton puns!
