Wayward Manor Is Neil Gaiman’s Latest Project
Neil Gaiman’s latest gaming-related project is Wayward Manor which is a creepy horror puzzle adventure game in development by The Odd Gentlemen and mobile game publishers Moonshark, with Gaiman at the helm. Wayward Manor looks like something Tim Burton would come up with and it has a charm all its own.
The game is a thriller set in the 1920s revolving around a ghost who dwells in a Victorian Gothic estate. In Wayward Manor, you play as the ghost who has the job of scaring away intruders who attempt to invade the estate. Gameplay is more squarely focused on player actions and is all about increasing player enjoyment. The ghost you play as must find inventive ways to scare the intruders away. As you make your way through the game, you will discover more about the cast of characters, and learn about the ghost’s own death. Perhaps you’ll come to know more about the danger that lurks?
Wayward Manor appears to be a proper mystery and the game itself is based on a tale written by Neil Gaiman, so it may be very worthwhile. The game will be coming to PC, Mac and tablets on 15 July. It is also available via Steam.
