Blumhouse Games reveals six titles, including new Sam Barlow project

Posted on June 8, 2024

Previously known for publishing hit horror movies such as Get Out, Happy Death Day, M3GAN and Five Nights at Freddie’s, Blumhouse Production recently entered the game publishing space. Now, thanks to an appearance at the Summer Game Fest, we know some of what they’re cooking. Behold, six games shown to be published under Blumhouse Games.

Fear the Spotlight

The Steam listing reads: “Fear the Spotlight is an atmospheric third-person horror adventure with a disturbing mystery to unravel. Sneak into school after hours with Vivian and Amy, survive a séance gone wrong, solve tactile puzzles, and, whatever you do, stay out of the spotlight…”

Fun fact, this one was originally released in 2023 and was already a well-regarded game. Late last year the horror venture mysteriously became delisted, promising a ‘significant update.’ I’ve already played this one in full and it’s a brilliant homage to the PS1 and PS2 era of horror. Lots of pixel grain and excellent ambiance to boot. I’m excited to see what they’ve achieved since with further backing from Blumhouse Games.

Crisol: Theater of Idols

The Steam listing reads ‘What would you do if your blood were your only weapon? How much would you sacrifice your life? Experience the unholy island of Tormentosa in this twisted first-person adventure full of horror and action where only your blood can be used to defeat the impious creatures that roam therein.’

Grave Seasons

There isn’t a Steam listing for this one but it’s a pixel art life-sim merging the quaint farming gameplay of Stardew Valley with a serial killer murder mystery. Exciting!


Not quite sure what to make of this one yet. Little to no info yet but it’s a first-person psychedelic horror game set in the far future, a debut title from studio EYES OUT.

The Simulation

I don’t quite know how to explain what my eyes saw except for the fact its blending the modern and old of horror and I’m keen. This is being developed by Playmestudio.

Project C 

Very early days with this one, no look to give. but it’s the new one from Sam Barlow studio Half Mermaid Productions. If it’s even half as good as Immortality was, then we’re there.
