Roblox is a platform known for its massive amount of multiplayer titles! There are games there from every genre, created by a variety of different developers and studios. Horror is often jump scares, scary creatures, and lots of trying not to get murdered! In Roblox, you can play along with your friends or some strangers you have just met, so at least you are not taking on the entire scare on your own!

What even is a horror game though? It is something scary or creepy. Often, it would make you jump or feel like you are at the edge of your seat, waiting for something bad to happen. It's a genre for people who like to feel on edge and be scared! Scary games and horror games on Roblox don't contain gore or graphic bodily harm and are more child friendly than other titles can contain.

Murder Mystery 2

Murder Mystery 2

Murder Mystery 2 takes clear inspiration from titles like Among Us and Werewolf. In it, team members get split into one of three categories randomly; Innocents, Sheriffs and Murderers. The Innocents are just looking to run and hide, as well as figure out who the murderer is and tell the sheriff. The sheriff is the protector, and the only one with a weapon that can defeat the murderer, so if you end up with this role, there will be a lot of weight on your shoulders! The murderer is, as you may have guessed, the baddie who is looking to kill everyone else on the map. Each round is often short, but it’s a pretty fun horror game, as you wait for the murderer to appear around the corner.

We have an MM2 value list that will help you with the Ancient, Legendary, Epic and other items, just so you can't say we left you into that scary world with nothing of assistance!
