Source: Neil Gaiman Announces His First Video Game, Wayward Manor
Writer Neil Gaiman (Sandman, American Gods, Coraline) took to the internet today to announce his first video game title, Wayward Manor.
Describing the project as a story he's always wanted to tell that was inspired by movies he loved as a kid, but didn't feel like it was a novel, he decided the story would be best as a video game experience.
The game is set in a 1920s Victorian estate, the player is a ghost seeking a peaceful afterlife. After people populate the estate, the player needs to find ways to scare them away. As the player does this he/she learns more about the new characters and the player's own death, plus a danger that threatens them all.
The game is being independent game studio The Odd Gentelmen and published by Moonshark. It has an estimated release date of December 2013 for Mac and PC platforms and later for tablets.
