Many babies love morbid content, like creepy pasta and spooky fairy tales. I remember one time when I was wearing my Hellraiser t-shirt and a five year old in a restaurant bathroom praised me for it. Thanks kid, I like cenobites too.
Someone I know once had the job of helping some very young children make video games, and they gravitated straight to horror. This was some years ago, I’m sure the kids are young adults by now. I hope they find this and turn beet red, and laugh too. It’s charmingly over-the-top foolery.
Click the pictures to visit the works of Bloody Rose Studios, and if you’re on PC, take the several minutes to finish one of these games. You will not regret it. Well, Content Warning: Morbid Kid Imagination let off the Leash. Some graphics provided by googling hamburger.
Bloody Scream was a classic point and click adventure game in the “dungeon escape” subgenre, made by kids who loved creepypasta and anime aesthetics. It’s the first and goriest entry.
Sweet Nightmares was getting more cerebral. If you can figure out how to get past the gnome traffic jam, it’ll really make you think, maaan. The soundtrack and sound effects in this one all came from the mouth of one girl. A master entertainer in the making.
Get Some Sleep or You’ll DIE!!! was an effort to make a serious, mature game in the vein of Zoe Quinn’s Depression Quest, to reflect the maturing sensibilities of these young creators. Things did not necessarily run to plan. See if you can collect the different bad endings.
