Teaser Trailer and Screenshots

Neil Gaiman (Coraline, Sandman series, The Graveyard Book) has partnered with The Odd Gentlemen (The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom, Slap Happy Sam’s Stageshow) to develop Wayward Manor, his first videogame, to be published by Moonshark (Stan Lee’s Verticus).

Gaiman has described the game as “lighthearted and goofy.” It’s planned as a multi-part series.

It’s the 1920s. Wayward Manor is a rather large Gothic abode in New England. It used to be yours, but you’re dead now.

You’re also a disgruntled ghost. Your peaceful afterlife has been disrupted by the dysfunctional family of misfits that’s moved into Wayward Manor. You want them out.

You will accomplish this by uncovering their deepest fears, driving them ’round the bend and scaring them so badly they’ll leave. Doing this will take ingenuity and creativity, but you’re definitely up to to the task.

Billed as a puzzle-adventure, the game’s first episode will be released in 2014 for PC, Mac and tablet.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
