Missing the PS1 Days? Check Out The Haunted PS1 Demo Disk Collection!

17 lo-res, indie horror demos are now available for free download on Windows if you need to scratch that nostalgic PS1 itch!

Get ready for a serious blast from the past with a modern twist! While most retro titles these days focus on SNES-style pixel art or classic isometric gameplay, that iconic, blocky PS1 look doesn't get as much love (unless you count the killer Last Of Us Part 2 demake trailer).

Today, 17 demos for classic PS1 games that don't actually exist came online with the Haunted PS1 Demo Disk. Despite the name, the collection is solely for Windows machines, but it is available for free and includes games that very much taking their cues from the best PS1 games like King's Field, Silent Hill, and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater.

If you're ready for your own lo-res haunted house experience, you can download the Haunted PS1 demo disk here.

Here's what the developers had to say about this spooky collection:

A CRT you don't remember owning flashes to life. Frozen in place you look upon the flickering screen to spy a dismal, bloodied scene. A cracked and faded jewel case sits close beside. A pale grey plastic box sits in front, emitting a low whirring noise. Will you take to the controller or let yourself be taken over?

Here's the full list of titles included on the Haunted PS1 Demo Disc 2020:

  • A Place, Forbidden
  • Dead Heat
  • Dread Delusion
  • Effigy
  • Erasure
  • Fatum Betula
  • Heartworm
  • In Somnio
  • Neko Yume
  • Ode to a Moon - Lost Disc
  • Orange County
  • Sauna2000
  • Snowy Castle Game
  • Tasty Ramen 
  • Until Biglight

Hopefully, this won't be the last collection like this. And maybe, we'll get a real classic demo disc from Sony or SEGA in the future.
