687 (who?)
EDIT: I updated the list, finally. I'm so sorry for being so lazy haha, I didn't add in anyone's suggestions for ages. For now, I just added the ones I was given the most information for. If you named a game but gave me no other information, I implore you to comment again with a link, synopsis and credit! Again, I'm sorry for the wait.


I got a few requests to include the list in a seperate journal entry, so here it is! I was also requested to include download links/info etc to the games. I'll do my best, but I haven't got time to search for all of them/play all of them, so if anyone could provide me with links, brief descriptions, or titles of new games, that would be fantastic!
For some of the games there will be a lack in information, usually either for a plot synopsis or for warnings regarding triggers, gore, violence etc. These will usually be caused by my not having played the game, so if you see one of the listed games lacking information, please feel free to provide it in the comments.


This is a list of games similar to Ib by kouri. The themes are relatively short, mild horror/puzzle RPG games for PC. Free and by independant game creators. Majority are created in RPGmaker and require RTPmaker to play (it's free and easy to download!).

Ib :by Kouri. DOWNLOAD:
(Pronounced similarly to 'Eve') A game about a girl who gets locked in a gallery. Strange things start to occur.
Relatively short and not too difficult or scary. Developed plot and characters. There are some themes of death, murder and exhaustion.

Ao Oni :by nonprops. DOWNLOAD:
(English translation: Blue Demon.) About four friends who decide to explore a haunted mansion.
Similar length to Ib. Contains a few jump-scares and puzzles, but nothing too difficult. Focuses less on plot and more on survival-horror.

The Witch's House / Majo no Ie :by Fummy. DOWNLOAD:…
About a girl who goes to explore a house in the woods, led by a cat. The house contains many dark secrets.
Slightly longer than Ib, and considerably scarier. The puzzles are not too difficult, and focus more on reflexes/retries than logic. Not much dialogue, but fairly developed characters. Contains blood and more severe horror elements than Ib.

Corpse Party :by team GrisGris. DOWNLOAD:…
About a few students who go to an elementary school that was previously occupied by a school where many murders of staff and pupils occurred. The students are transported into an alternate dimension where they are haunted by the ghosts of the murdered staff and pupils.
PEGI rating 16. Very graphic and contains dead bodies/rape scenes.

The Mirror Lied :by Free Bird Games. DOWNLOAD:…
(Shortened to TML) About a little girl who explores an empty house with no visible means of escape. Focuses on open interpretation by the player.
Fairly short and strange. It is very open-ended to allow the player to think about its meaning. Very little plot.

To the Moon :by Free Bird Games. DOWNLOAD:
Apparently a sad, short, and sweet game about two doctors who travel the memories of a dying man to fulfil his final wish. As far as I am aware, there are no horror elements.
Sadly not free, however there is a free 1 hour demo trial available.

Clock of Atonement :by Daigo. DOWNLOAD:…
You play as a guy who loved a girl so much to the point of killing her (yep). You are given a 'Clock of Atonement' for a chance to repent for what you did.
The game focuses on saving the girl; apart from that the plot is not too developed as far as I have heard. As made obvious by the synopsis, it contains some horror elements.

Schuld :by Kelven. DOWNLOAD:
(Translation: Guilt) About a man who finds himself in a dying world without knowledge of how he got there.
Relatively short. Not too complex, fairly easy puzzles.  Contains surreal/psychological horror.

Desert Nightmare :by Kelven. DOWNLOAD:
About a woman named Sandra who heads towards a certain city, however upon meeting two other stranded people, she realises that they are trapped, and the city has some dark secrets of its own.
Supposedly it is more adventure than horror, but again, proceed with caution. I haven't played this game.

OFF :by Mortis Ghost. DOWNLOAD:
You take control of a mysterious person who is described to be on a mission. You start in zone 0, the first of 4 zones in a world which you gradually learn more about as you play.
It is a little creepy and does have some pop-up images, but nothing too serious.

Misao :by Sen. DOWNLOAD:…
A girl bullied by everyone went missing. Everyone related to the girl in some way have been trapped in another world. Other than this I have no other information, but it is apparently an extremely good game.
According to the translator, it contains some grotesque imagery, and depictions of violence, bullying, sexual assault, and murder. The whole game is basically a trigger. Proceed with caution.

Mad Father :by Sen. DOWNLOAD:…
Within a mansion in Germany, a girl lives peacefully with her father. However, one night vengeful spirits overtake the mansion, and the girl must try to save her father - if she still wishes to, after finding out his dark secrets.
Contains horror elements and implied violence.

Hello? Hell...o? :by Ryuuichi Tachibana. DOWNLOAD:…
A very simple game with various different outcomes.

The Crooked Man :by Uri. DOWNLOAD:…
A man named David moves into a new apartment, however after some strange occurences, decides to investigate the previous owner of the apartment. Desperate to know more, he heads off on a search.
There are some jumpscares and moderate themes of suicide, depression and violence.

Paranoiac :by Uri. DOWNLOAD:…
Contains jumpscares and themes of mental illness, suicide and stillbirth.

Mermaid Swamp :by Uri. DOWNLOAD:…
A girl and her friends have their car broken down in the mountains while on a trip. Fortunately, a kind old man allows them to stay at his house. However, there is a legend regarding the swamp outside.
There are supposedly some nude scenes, although nothing serious. I don't know about horror elements, so proceed with caution.

Re:Kinder :by Parun. DOWNLOAD:…
A third grader goes to stay at his grandmother's house, but upon his return home, he finds not his hometown, but a ruined place of death. He meets some other survivors, but a crueler reality awaits them.
This game does contain gore and various other disturbing or upsetting imagery.

Divinity Fatum :by GreyInvidia.
It starts off with a woman who wakes up in a dark, and rainy street with absolutely no memory of how she got there. She wanders around the city streets, and makes certain discoveries as she progresses. The game is incomplete at the moment, and immediately shuts off when a certain point in the game is reached.
Leans more toward mystery and psychological elements.

Yume Nikki :by Kikiyama. DOWNLOAD:…
(Translation: Dream Diary) About a girl whose life is nothing more than dreams.
Can take a long time to complete. Very difficult and abstract, with little plot. The game is less about storyline and more about interpretation. Not scary as such, but it does have some images and scenes which can be considered disturbing or haunting. Also contains flashy stuff, so epilepsy warning. There are many spin-offs of this game which are listed below.


In the following lists are a compilation of Yume Nikki fangames! There are so many of them that it would be a waste of time for me to relist all of them here. As far as I'm aware, most of them are pretty similar, although differ in graphics styles and themes etc, as well as varying levels of horror and disturbance.


The majority of the fangames are similar in gameplay and plot to Yume Nikki itself. For further information you can read up on the individual games!
However as there are many lists of Yume Nikki fangames out there, I ask that you refrain from submitting any of those here; I'd like to keep this particular journal for individual games, not spin-offs.

Again, if you know of any other similar games, please provide the name, info and link!


I'll add to this list if I get more suggestions. Let's spread the RPG love!

Just play them ok? Their great. JUST PLAY THEM!

Guys, if you like RPG games, you have to try Dreaming Mary! It's really cool. It has a similar concept to Yume Nikki, except you actually, you know, do things.
You play as a girl named Mari who has the ability to create worlds in her dreams. Everything is very pretty and it kind of looks like a kid's game... except something is VERY off about it...
The longer you play, the more you realize just how un-innocent this game REALLY is.
It has a lot of symbolism and multiple endings, and of course includes one of those huge twists so common in RPG games. I've just finished playing it and it was really quite amazing.

Here's the link:

I know a game like Ib but doesn't have any horror elements (well i don't think so) It's called The Gray Garden and it's a really lovely piece of art you have to play to really feel the game but I suggest it it's good :)
glass-the-cat Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Ther's a game called "The god of crawling eyes".
Link here

(Also, i know about a good paeg that posts about many RPG games, there's some in english & spanish. Sadly, it's in spanish (Well, it's my 'main language' so i don't have problems, but i know not everyone knows Spanish), but you could use google translator and translate the page~ )

Thanks for this! I've been trying to find a RPG game that I would like! Excited 
CherryChuu Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2014
Forest of Drizzling Rain is pretty similar too.
What about HetaOni English Project by Nyokyno and Pianodream??? It's somewhat based of the plot of Ao Oni. Has a great storyline, plot, and character development. Basically all the characters are personifications of countries and nations, but after finding their selves trapped in supposedly haunted mansion, they realize they can killed as easily as humans here. Free RPG Crossover between Hetalia and Ao Oni.

MIENTES Featured By Owner May 20, 2014
My favorite games:
1- IB (it's absolutely awesome and very creative)
2- To the moon (the most beautiful, romantic and sad story i've ever seen)
3- The Witch's house (omg, that fucking ending! o.O Not the normal one, i'm talking about the other ending. Seriously, wtf)

I've also played: Paranoic, The crooked man, Mad Father, and Mermaid Swamp. They are all pretty good
Yummy-Pumpkin-Chan Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
The ending of The Witch's House was just heartbreaking. T_T The "bad" ending of Paranoiac was sad too.  
Roxy-Mizu Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
omg lol I loved The Witch's House!! SO MANY JUMP SCARES, WTF. XDD

The Here and Now of Yesterday is a pretty good horror one that's pretty similar, in terms of style, of Ib. I just started playing it a few hours ago (on/off in order to distract me from the scary aspect of it XD) and its seems pretty good. The story line, so far, seems pretty vague, but I think it's about a girl (as far as I can see lol) that's been dropped off at some sort of institution for the paranormal. It has a few endings as far as I can see, and so far I haven't encountered many traumatizing jump scares XD although I haven't played for long. the jump scares aren't very bad as long as the sound is muted XDDD Here's the link to the game's page on :
Saria4 Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
played them all <3
RaineKokoro Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
There's a game that's getting some spotlight on Tumblr. It's called 'Alicemare.' It actually has a few horror elements (jump scares here and there, that's only for those sensitive to loud noises. Also, there's a cat that pops up a lot.) Not really an 'hp' system. In fact, the hp system is like that of 'Misao.' The save system is like 'Ib.' And also, as a warning, there's mentions of suicide within the 'fourth world.' It's about a boy who has amnesia and enters a facility after loosing his memories in a freak accident. After trying to rescue a butterfly (from the storage,) he ends up in a 'gothic wonderland' type 'world.' There's also a bit of psychological horror and a lot of characters die.

You forgot the HIGHLY underloved title of "The Longing Ribbon" without the "s, it's real good. :)

>are all of the game downloads safe?
Battiana Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2015  Hobbyist Artist
If you're not sure, than copy the link and search it on google, adding the word "safe" at the end. Than there's multiple sites that tell you if that site is good, or is bad. There's a site that google tells you if it's bad, and that's pretty good too.

MaggieJezebelWeasley Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2014  Hobbyist
I managed to find Mac versions for Ib, Mad Father, The Mirror Lied, and The Witch's House when I searched...found the links in the description of different YouTube videos, actually. Beyond that, I haven't searched for any others. I love Ib with a passion! It's a wonderful story. :D
MaggieJezebelWeasley Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2014  Hobbyist
I think so. :aww: Took me a couple of tries, but yeah, I'm pretty sure I did. Then I tried to tweak the game in the RPG Maker 2003 program to make a sort of sequel to the "Ib All Alone" ending where Garry makes it but Ib doesn' where you play as Garry instead. My computer got a virus though and I lost a lot of my work before I could do anything about it. I've sort of given up on the project... :sighs: 
Anime-Quotes Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I agree ^^ 

Have you gotten all the different endings yet?
