I don’t know about anyone else, but Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I especially love the cuter side of things. And what’s better to help get into that Halloween spirit than playing Halloween games? Below are some cute games I’ve discovered.
Cat Saves Halloween
It’s Halloween and the monsters are attacking the town. Luckily, there’s one person, or cat, standing between the monsters and innocent townspeople. You! Play as a magical cat who is tasked with saving the town from the monsters. Don’t worry, though, you aren’t a simple house cat. You’re a magical cat. So, use a variety of cat powers to go toe-to-toe with the monsters to save the day. Running, jumping, sleeping, hairballs, controlling people, and casting magic can all help you in some way.
Explore a large, interactive open-world map. Complete quests and side quests you get from various NPCs. Gain new powers in your exploration and fight the monsters. Or, if you’re not keen on saving the day, go cause chaos while the townspeople are distracted!
Return to a world of charming horror in Little Nightmares 2. Again you’ll play as Mono, a little boy trapped in a world that’s been distorted by the humming transmission of a tower. With Six, a little girl wearing a yellow raincoat, Mono sets out to investigate the secrets of the Transmission Tower. It won’t be easy, though. Both Mono and Six will face some new challenges from the residents of this spooky world.
Available here for Steam, PS 4 and 5, Xbox One and X|S Series, and Nintendo Switch.
Next on the Halloween Games list is Escape Simulator! This is a first person puzzle game that you can play solo, or in online co-op. You explore different escape rooms that grow in difficulty and complexity. As you advance, there will be more furniture to move around, more pots to smash, and more locks to break! There are 23 rooms for you to explore and escape, with community-made rooms also available to play.
Why this makes the Halloween list, though, is because developers Pine Studio created a special, eerie escape room level to celebrate Halloween! Players can now explore a creepy graveyard, and of course, try to escape from it. With a special new soundtrack and the new ability to customize your outfit so you can dress-up in costume, it’s bound to be a spooky good time.
In this brightly colored side-scrolling puzzle game, you play as a ghost who is going haunting the townspeople. Leave the dusty, abandoned clock tower behind to float through town and cause chaos. Possess objects to scare people away from the museum, the hospital, the theatre, and the cruise ship. The game features a plethora of townsfolk to haunt, and hundreds of different items to possess each with different powers to try. Also available are three free expansions. Scare everyone and try to reclaim what’s been lost all in one night!
Available here for Steam, PC and Mac, Google Play, and the Apple App store.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Stardew Valley
Ok, so this is a two-for-one special, but they’re tried and true games that really embody the Halloween vibes many of us are looking for. While players can’t do a ton, Stardew Valley’s Spirit’s Eve sets an incredible Halloween mood with its cute and creepy, but simple hedge maze and chill atmosphere. You get to talk to the townsfolk and enjoy the mood without the pressure of completing any games for special prizes or solving quests.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons, on the other hand, is perfect for those of us who enjoy creating our own designs and settings. From spooky cute to scary and creepy, the towns users have designed have been incredible. Players can use skins and eye colors for their players, a variety of costumes are available to wear, plus Halloween themed items can be used to create your Halloween wonderland. It’s hard not to get excited for the season when you can decorate and wear costumes to your heart’s content!
Now that October is here and the Halloween update has come to Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the spooky fun has begun! The Animal Crossing: New Horizons fall update has introduced a bunch of awesome new features! Pumpkin patches, new eye colors and skin tones and Halloween costumes, are just a few spooktacular examples.
The new Halloween costumes and clothing play an essential role in the October 31st festivites! However, there are also pre-halloween clothing items and costumes that are just as good as the official Halloween clothing items.
With the amount of clothing and accessories now available, players can mix and match clothing to make the perfect Halloween costume.
If you’re a little stumped, why not check out these Animal Crossing: New Horizons Halloween costumes for inspiration.

The highly-anticipated Animal Crossing: New Horizons fall update is live. The update contains a bunch of cool features such as the ability to grow pumpkins, spooky new reactions, and new Halloween clothing and costumes. Additionally, players now have access to more skin and eye colors for their player to choose from.
Wicked witches with green skin, imps with red eyes, and orange-eyed cats are just a few ways the new Halloween skin & eye colors in Animal Crossing: New Horizons are making Halloween costumes better. However, they aren’t immediately available to players when using a mirror for character customization.
Like me, you may be wondering if you didn’t get this update feature. However, there is a way of obtaining the new skin and eye colors. In this article, we will explain how you get the new Halloween skin & eye colors in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Accessing The New Skin & Eye Colors – A How To
Albeit obvious, the very first thing you need to do is to install the fall update if you haven’t already done so.
Next, load up Animal Crossing: New Horizons and head to Residents Services.
Once inside, interact with the NookStop Terminal. Select the ‘Redeem Nook Miles’ option when prompted.
You will notice two new additions that can be redeemed with Nook Miles. The first addition is labelled ‘Body-Paint Costume Tips’. Redeem this option for 2,400 Nook Miles and you will then have unlocked the new Halloween skin colors too
The second new addition is called ‘Exploring New Eye Colors’. Redeem this option, which also costs 2,400 Nook Miles and you will then have access to the new Halloween eye colors too.
To access and try out the new skin and eye colors, simply interact with a mirror like you usually would when customizing your character’s features.
Body Paint Color Options
There are four new body paint color options for players to choose from after purchasing ‘Body Paint Costume Tips’ from the Nook Stop terminal. The four colors included are white, green, blue, and purple.
Eye Color Options
There are six new eye color options for players to choose from after purchasing ‘Exploring New Eye Colors’ from the Nook Stop terminal. The six new eye colors included are pink, orange, yellow, purple, grey and light green.
Examples Of Players Using The Feature To Make Costumes Even Better
NB: These new body-paint and eye color options are useable year round. However, as they are only redeemable in October, (make sure you get them from the Nook Stop terminal before the month ends).
In addition to body-paint, Halloween-themed face paint will make a one-day appearance on October 31st. Stay tuned for more information on this, as well as what the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Halloween event will be like!

Pumpkins. The latest Animal Crossing: New Horizons update allows players to plant, grow and harvest pumpkins. This allows players to create some awesome, authentic-looking little pumpkin patches! In addition to this, pumpkins are essential to craft the new Halloween-themed items. To lend fellow fans a hand, here is a quick guide on how to grow pumpkins in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
How To Grow Pumpkins
Where To Buy Pumpkin Starts/Seeds
Pumpkin starts are purchasable from the cabinet inside of Nook’s Cranny for 280 bells each. Alternatively, when Leif visits, he sells them a bit cheaper at 140 bells a pop.
How To Plant Pumpkin Starts
You can plant pumpkin starts by standing on an empty piece of land, opening your inventory, and then planting the starts.
Alternatively, you can dig a hole with your shovel and then open your inventory to plant the starts.
Tip: Using the Island Designer app on your NookPhone to place dirt tiles to plant the starts on, is a cute way of making a proper little pumpkin patch.
Watering Your Pumpkins
It’s important to water your pumpkins regularly as they will then produce more pumpkins for you to harvest later on
If you water your planted pumpkin starts everyday (barring rainy days) until the pumpkins are fully grown, You will be able to harvest three pumpkins as opposed to the fewer pumpkins that grow when you don’t water them each day.
Like flowers, the pumpkins will twinkle when watered.
The Stages Of Pumpkin Growth
There are four different stages of Pumpkin growth. These four stages happen over the course of the four days it takes for Pumpkins to be ready for harvesting.
Stage 1 (Planted)
Stage 2 (Growing)
Stage 3 (More Growing..)
Stage 4 (Ready!)
When your pumpkin(s) have reached the fourth stage of growth (as illustrated above), they are ready for harvesting!
To harvest a pumpkin, stand over it and press the Y button. The pumpkin will then be in your inventory, and can now be used as a crafting material!
Do Pumpkins Regrow After Being Harvested?
Yes, pumpkins do indeed regrow after being harvested. So there’s no need to dig the plants up, as more pumpkins will contine to sprout.
The Different Types of Pumpkins & Their Role In Customization
There are four different types of pumpkins that can grow from a pumpkin start and then be harvested. The pumpkins grow in orange, yellow, white, and green.
The orange pumpkin is the most common colored pumpkin to sprout. The other three colored pumpkins are uncommon in comparison. This does make sense however, as the spooky item DIY’s require solely orange pumpkins as crafting materials.
But to customize your Spooky Set items, you’ll still need the other colored pumpkins which sprout in yellow, white, and green.
The video released by Nintendo shows that the game’s Halloween update contains a whole bunch of great features. New skin colors, purchasable Halloween costumes, spooky new reactions, and the ability to grow pumpkins (and use them in new DIY recipes!).
These are just some of the things we’ll get for Halloween in Animal Crossing: New Horizons!
