Composer Josh Welchel works with other composers to create special packages of soundtracks for you to download online.
The newest features soundtracks from 14 different scary games, including a handful of innovative mobile games.
The first tier includes five soundtracks: Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, Limbo, Dead Space and Bloodrayne: Betrayal.
So far, tier two contains Home, Year Walk, Penumbra, Plants vs. Zombies, The Horror at MS Aurora, Organ Trail, Alice: Madness Returns, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories and Surveillant.
Welchel said other soundtracks might get added to the Bundle next week.
Bundles like this are a great way to discover new music. Welchel points out that each composer uses different tools to create frightening sounds.
It's a fascinating survey of scary music - from chiptunes to (the illusion of) full orchestras, you're bound to be terrified by the music!
"Traditionally, when you're approaching scary music, if you can somehow relate to the main character and understand what their fear is based on, ultimately that's what helps me decide what to compose for." Composer Josh Welchel
