Neil Gaiman's Ghost Game Hitting PC Next Month

Puzzle adventure game Wayward Manor set to release on PC and Mac on July 15.

Wayward Manor, a puzzle adventure game from developer The Odd Gentlemen and renowned horror-fantasy author Neil Gaiman (Coraline, Stardust, Sandman), will release on PC and Mac on July 15, The Odd Gentlemen has announced.

“We’ve been working day and night to make sure Wayward Manor is the best game it can be,” the developer said in the announcement. “This ultimately meant making the tough decision to delay the game. After adding more puzzles, an extra level of polish, and maybe even some paranormal surprises; we’re finally ready to announce a release date for Wayward Manor.”

Set in the 1920s, in Wayward Manor you play as a ghost who’s trying to reclaim his house from its new owners, the Budds family. As The Odd Gentlemen explains the game, in each level you’ll have to use observation, discovery, and puzzle solving to scare the Budds, earn enough fear to take back control of the room, and eventually the manor.

The Odd Gentlemen previously developed The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom, and Wayward Manor will be Neil Gaiman’s first game. You’ll be able to download it from Steam or the Humble Store, where 10 percents of the proceeds go to charity.
