The latest installment in DreadXP’s popular anthology horror series is now set to release on Friday, May 20, 2022! Frightening things come to those who wait. Based around the theme of “entertainment”, Dread X Collection 5 brings forth twelve delightfully twisted short-form nightmares from the creators of such indie hits as 0°N 0°W, Lakeview Cabin, Sylvio, and The Mortuary Assistant. Tying all of the games together is the launcher / hub world called Outpost 3000, which features additional development support from indie developer KIRA (Lost in Vivo, Spooky’s Jump Scare Mansion).

Dread X Collection 5 transports players to terrifying locales like haunted nightclubs, dark carnivals, haunted puppet shows, the country Finland in the year 1888, a karaoke bar toilet, and so much more!

The Dread X Collection series premiered in May 2020 and has since spawned four individual releases, featuring a collective of 41 curated horror shorts from some of the industry’s top independent developers. Inspired by Game Jam events, each collection has its own thematic concept which points the featured developers in a similar direction but with full creative freedom. Dread X Collection 5 raises the total count of horror shorts in the series to 53. To learn more about the Dread X Collection series, please visit https://www.dreadxp.com/collections.
