'Wayward Manor' Announced

by Rainier on July 29, 2013 @ 11:30 a.m. PDT

Set in a 1920s Victorian Gothic pastoral estate, Wayward Manor players unravel the mystery of a ghost (player) seeking a peaceful after-life.

After a remarkable cast of characters moves into Wayward Manor and wakes him from his post-mortem slumbers, the 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.

“For quite a while there's been a story that I've wanted to tell, something inspired by the kinds of films that I loved when I was a kid,” said Gaiman. “But I kept running into the same problem: it didn't really feel like a novel. It felt like something that you would have to experience yourself. So today, I'm proud to announce my first-ever game, Wayward Manor.”

Wayward Manor is being developed by indie studio The Odd Gentleman (The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom and Flea Symphony), in conjunction with publisher Moonshark. The release is supported by a unique, exclusive presale campaign, offering rewards for fans including limited-edition merchandise, the opportunity to name a game character, and even a private dinner with Gaiman, among others.

Neil Gaiman is a New York Times Best-Selling author of more than 20 books for adults and children, including the novels The Ocean at the End of the Lane (which debuted at #1), Neverwhere, Stardust, American Gods, Anansi Boys, Coraline, The Graveyard Book, and the Sandman series of graphic novels.

Pre-sale orders are now being accepted.
