May 4, 2013

Legendary Sandman and American Gods scribe Neil Gaiman will be making his video game debut with his ghostly adventure Wayward Manor, publisher Moonshark has announced.

Due this autumn on PC, Mac and tablets, Wayward Manor is being developed by The Odd Gentlemen i.e. the studio behind The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom and Flea Symphony. It's planned as the first chapter in a multi-part series.

Set in a remote estate in 1920s New England, Wayward Manor follows the exploits of a grumpy ghost who wants to spook his house's new inhabitants away. Doing so means spying on the unwitting buggers and coming up with the best way to freak them out. Along the way our spectral lead will learn more about his own death, the after-life, and some more devious dangers as well.
