Gruesome Gaming: Wayward Manor (2013)

For his first venture into the “peculiar world of video games,” renowned author Neil Gaiman teams up with The Odd Gentlemen to bring us a new story from Gaiman’s delightfully twisted mind.


In this video introduction, Gaiman explains a bit about how the game will work and gives some of the following reasons you should visit/explore the site: how you can pre-order it, purchase merchandise, and contribute anywhere from $10 – $10,000 in exchange for fun perks (including an option to give $10,000 for the “spookiest dinner anybody has ever had . . . in Los Angeles” with Neil, himself).

I am certainly looking forward to exploring this new interactive tale that Gaiman is crafting. I’ve always wanted to haunt a house, might as well haunt Wayward Manor! Also, does anyone know where I can get $10,000?

There’s something to be said for shrouding endeavors in mystery, but some of you might desire proper context for what you’re looking at. Based on an original tale by Neil Gaiman, Wayward Manor is a new game for PC, Mac and tablets, due to be released Fall 2013.

Set in a 1920s Victorian Gothic pastoral estate, Wayward Manor focuses on the plight of a ghost whose hope of a peaceful after-life is interrupted by a remarkable cast of intruders. Awoken from his post-mortem slumbers, our ghost must find ever-more inventive and brilliant ways to scare them away. As the ghost learns more about the living characters, he also learns more about his own death and after-life, and the danger they are all facing.
