If your Halloween plans are less focused on dressing up to score free candy and more about playing games into the wee hours of the night, Steam has a Halloween-themed sale just for you. The offerings are mainly horror-themed, but just about anything dark, scary or otherwise with a tangential connection to Halloween is on sale right now.

Steam’s Halloween sale runs Oct. 29 to Nov. 1. Here’s a selection of some of the top sellers currently on sale (which, yes, includes Rocket League, currently holding its Haunted Hallows seasonal event):

  • Left 4 Dead 2 — $1.99 (80 percent off)
  • Rocket League — $11.99 (40 percent off)
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider — $39.59 (34 percent off)
  • Vampyr — $33.49 (33 percent off)
