Neil Gaiman Presents “Wayward Manor”
By Matt Cohen on July 26, 2013
Neil Gaiman is one of the most renowned comic book creators, screenwriters, and authors in the world; you can now add video game mastermind to that prestigious list.
Wayward Manor is a new game, based on an original yarn by Gaiman, due to be released on PC, Mac, and Tablets in the fall; But rather us try and tell you about it, here’s the man himself to describe the project.
Here’s the official description of the game, from the folks who made it:
Set in a 1920s Victorian Gothic pastoral estate, Wayward Manor focuses on the plight of a ghost whose hope of a peaceful after-life is interrupted by a remarkable cast of intruders. Awoken from his post-mortem slumbers, our ghost must find ever-more inventive and brilliant ways to scare them away. As the ghost learns more about the living characters, he also learns more about his own death and after-life, and the danger they are all facing.
The game is now available for pre-order and the online-store offers different pricing “packages”, with some coming with pretty amazing bonus perks.
