Haunted PS1 is a collection of intentionally low-poly horror games on Itch.io. Most of its titles are for sale, but you can soon try some out for free.
If you never heard of Haunted PS1, it is a community of indie game developers who create low res horror games in the same vein as the original Silent Hill and Resident Evil, as well as some contemporary games that don’t have 90s counterparts. This federation of frights features its own dedicated Itch.io page, where gamers can purchase these retro horror experiences and download them onto PC, but the community is also compiling a collection of free demos known as the Haunted PS1 Demo Disc.
Despite its name, the Haunted PS1 Demo Disc isn’t actually a physical disc, and none of the games can actually run on PlayStation 1 (these are PC games, remember). However, the demo disc features some trippy cover art that is a love letter to PS1 demo discs of yore.
The Haunted PS1 Demo Disc will be available on Thursday, February 6th on the community’s Itch.io page for the price of free.
