Witches, Aliens, Reunions, and Ghost Hunting in Horror Bytes’ July Edition [Safe Room Podcast]

Before diving into the Horror Bytes July Edition of Safe Room, check out last week’s discussion on our Game of the Year (so far) picks! 

As it’s the beginning of the month, it’s time for Horror Bytes, our monthly segment in which Neil and I each highlight four bite-sized indie horror games that can generally be completed in less than an hour. 

The Horror Bytes: July Edition picks range from a space farming simulator, hunting fleshy mimics with a sledgehammer, an otherworldly high school reunion, and a monochrome homage to Alien. 

The beauty of Horror Bytes is there’s something for everyone, no matter their horror preferences! And as always, be sure to support the developers through their itchio, Steam, or Patreon pages.
