Ideas or help to make horror game

Heres an idea… One player will be a killer, 1 to 3 will be a survivor, the survivors have to fix three generators, maybe make it so the more players on it, the faster it gets fixed, and the generators open a gate they have to escape from the killer who sets off a bunch of traps to try to stop the player, but doesn’t stop the killer, they get into a boat and run away.

Popup jumpscare with a skull emoji on it.


Game where a person has to creep through a dark factory with 1 health and has to dodge sentry bullets and the like.

A place where you think you will be jump scared but never are

That sounds fun

A game that slowly becomes more distorted, kind of like Amanda the adventurer

The main thing in horror games is to make the player feel unsettled. Thus, pretty much anything can be horror. Use sudden teleportations, strange sounds to make the player feel like they’re hallucinating, and of course, a sense of the unknown. Or just recreate FNaF. I’m gonna be working on FNaF 4 but every animatronic is Toy Chica pretty soon, but not in Gimkit

Try liminal spaces, they have an unsettling feeling that you’re not alone. take a giant mall for example you can see what you can see but the place is so big, something scary could be anywhere. maybe you could have a goal center that you come to every now and then and the goals might say something like: Task: stay alone FAILED. I agree with @AverageMale who says that the game will all be happy Gimkit fun land then become death blood monster land. But there aren’t really any scary thing to expect in Gimkit, that’s why most of the horror games in Gimkit are terrible. But lead them to see that Gimkit is no longer a kids learning game, its a horror game. what I’m saying is make something kid freindly slowly not kid friendly. then you have a unique horror game!


The thing is that there’s no way as far as I know to make things darker.

You have to get creative with text, words have power.
All the NPCs are in happy fun land but inside they are distorted with no freedom in sight.
“Gone… gone…”

You can overlay a barrier with no collision and is see through for making tihngs darker. Or you can alter the tint of the prop.

I Have this tutorial if you need, it’s for a hallway jumpscare sorta thing

Y’d you reply @DEADMAN68687 hasn’t been online since Oct 26, '23

hi im back after a long time

Oooh, uh use the scariest new sentry skins and have them shoot at you in the darkness, but when you shoot at them blindly, the light revealed them. So it is like a jump scare.

Maybe you could do Jump scares like making a scary emoji sudden appear or getting teleported into a spooky room, or you could decorate with spooky lights then have the lights suddenly go out.

You can also have red bloody text saying unusual words and don’t forget to use intense music. You can go on youtube and search for scary music then copy the link in your game telling your players to copy the link if you don’t think gimkit music is scary enough

huh. Never thought of that. :confused: thanks for the idea though.

Maybe make a map where one person is killer and you have to hack computers to open the doors
