Neil Gaiman's Wayward Manor Gets A Teaser Trailer

Wayward Manor

Neil's Gaiman's first foray into video games, has gotten its first teaser trailer. The game is a colloboration between Gaiman, developer The Odd Gentlemen - who created the eclectic platformer The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom - and publisher Moonshark. In it, players take control of a ghost whose slumber in the titular manor is disturbed when the Budd family moves in. The only way to return to resting in peace is to scare the Budds out of their new home.

Here's a description from the F.A.Q. section of the game's website:Wayward Manor is a puzzle/adventure game hybrid that invites players to solve the mysteries of the mansion any way they choose. You play as a disgruntled ghost, trying to reclaim your house from its newfound owners. This dysfunctional family of misfits and eccentrics have stifled your power and brought their own abysmal possessions into your humble abode. Each level is a playground for scares where players absorb fear to take back control of the room. If you want free reign over your mansion once again, you must uncover their deepest anxieties and drive them mad with fear using your wits and their hideous belongings.

It was also announced that the game would be available for digital download via Steam upon its release. The game is expected to be available sometime during Fall 2013. You preorder the game at whohauntsneil.com.
