In recent times, the gaming industry in Thailand has been expanding rapidly, with a particular emphasis on horror and survival games. Thai game developers have been making significant contributions in this genre, with games such as Home Sweet Home and ARAYA gaining recognition on the global stage. In order to enhance the thrill of horror games, this research proposes the use of speech recognition technology to add a new level of challenge, requiring players to use their wits to correctly recite spells and complete various missions in order to survive. Through testing with a group of 15 individuals aged 18-25, it was found that they had a very positive reaction to the game, with an average satisfaction level of 4.47 out of 5 and standard deviation (S.D.) = 0.34.
