October is upon us, and while All Hallows’ Eve is still exactly 30 days away at the time of writing, no one’s stopping you from getting into the spooky season well ahead of time. Perhaps even by picking up the Queer Halloween Stories Bundle 2023?
Oh, the Queer Halloween Stories Bundle 2023 will also disappear on that day. Forever! As such, what say we skip straight to the part where I tell you how much it is, link some of my personal favourites from its contents, and let you at it?
The Queer Halloween Stories Bundle is a grassroots indie media bundle that hopes to bring attention to the underground world of queer horror and other Halloween-adjacent art while financially supporting the folks behind these projects.
So, 83 digital games (with 2 separated translated builds), 22 physical games, 7 books/zines, 3 comics, and 3 audio dramas, all for the relatively low cost of $60 – or $10 if the money’s tight. As the title implies, the bundle supports queer indie developers, authors, and artists, with sales split evenly among participants who opted in to receive funds for their work.

Pink Takes Shape
Start as a pink blob that can only move and jump.
Learn to morph and gain abilities to explore the strange, dark world.
Savor the textless environmental storytelling.
Decipher what it means to be there, to be you.
For a vampire’s loyal servant, a human kept alive beyond a natural lifespan by the power and magic of vampire blood, life is a matter of simple obedience… until misfortune befalls the vampire lord. To preserve your existence, you must awaken a new vampire mistress and re-establish the blood bond.
Unfortunately, during those long years asleep in a coffin, your vampire mistress shrank to child-size form! She has no memories, no magic, and a tendency to bite anything she can lay her hands on. In this condition, she won’t be able to perform the blood bond!
Can you help her to regain her full power before your time runs out?
