Mundaun Is A Horror Game Hand-Drawn In Pencil, And A First Trailer Is Out Now

This hand-crafted horror game has been drawn in grey pencil.


Mundaun is an upcoming horror game will a curious visual twist--all environmental elements in it have been drawn in pencil. The game, which is coming to PC and unspecified consoles in 2021, will be about a character who travels to his grandfather's home town following his mysterious death, and ends up getting tangled in some weird, terrifying events.

The game comes from developer Hidden Fields, a one-person operation by Michel Ziegler, and this is his first full-length game. In April 2018, Ziegler tweeted about the game, saying that he'd been working on it for 3.5 years--which means that the game has been in development since at least 2015. It's due for release in Spring 2021.

You can watch the trailer below, but tread with caution if you have a phobia of freaky goats.

The game will have a mechanic that measures the main character's level of fear, which impacts how they control. There will also be puzzles to solve and a wide open environment to explore. The snowy mountains you'll be exploring will also host sinister creatures that you should avoid (it's unclear whether the game has a combat mechanic).

The entire game will seemingly be in greyscale, although the game's Steam page description makes a reference to "green meadows," so perhaps there will be some color.

Mundaun is one of many promising horror games on the horizon, including Resident Evil Village, Remothered: Broken Porcelain, The Outlast Trials, The Dark Picture Anthology: Little Hope, and Scorn.
