They don't need to be horror; anything sufficiently dark will do. The more cerebral the better. :)

Eg, i generally liked Sepulchre (not so much the added chapters), and Downfall/The Cat Lady. But anything more bizarre/cerebral would likely be even more of interest.

(edit: you can also suggest non-free, that have a demo chapter)

I think you will like The Marionette:

It *is* horror - which isn't really my thing at all, but this one still grabbed my interest.

I really recommend Traum.
It's a fantastic horror adventure with some very dark tones.  :smiley:

The Silver Lining - Haunted Castle Experience LOOKS nice, but I can't get it to work, so I don't know if it's any good or not.  :sad:

It's so frustrating - I want to review it for my site, but it always freezes before I even get into the castle.  :cry:
Maybe you'll have better luck?

It probably isn't considered good form to recommend one's own games, but I think there are elements of my latest game, The Clockwork Labyrinth, that might appeal to you.  The atmosphere is surreal rather than scary, but it is quite dark in its own way.  The emphasis is on the puzzles.
