The acclaimed British author Neil Gaiman, best known for American Gods and the Sandman comics, has announced his first videogame, Wayward Manor, an adventure-puzzle where you play a ghost who wants to rid his house of all of the living intruders.
According to Gaiman in his introductory video, “It’s lighthearted. It’s goofy. It’s nice to flip points of view. Normally in a game, if you’re in a haunted house, you are going to be walking through it intrepidly with your flashlight, your bell-book and candle, and your copy of the Necronomicon and you keep going until you find the ghost. In this one all you want to do is be left in peace with your lovely house and be left alone. I don’t want to give anything away but it’s safe to say you were killed in the 1880s and you were killed for a reason.”
Wayward Manor is due to be released in Fall 2013 for PC and tablets. Those interested in checking out the game can visit the official site here.
