Neil Gaiman's first video game: Wayward Manor

Neil Gaiman is partnering with The Odd Gentlemen and Moonshark for his first jump into video games. Wayward Manor is coming this fall to PC, Mac, and tablets.


Neil Gaiman has made his mark in the realm of books (The Sandman), movies (Coraline), and television (Doctor Who). So, what's next? Video games, of course. Wayward Manor is being penned by Gaiman, and will be developed by The Odd Gentlemen (The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom) for PC and Mac. A tablet version is also in the works.

Wayward Manor will be set in a 1920's Victorian Gothic estate and will center around a ghost seeking to rest in peace. Unfortunately, the manor is invaded by some unwelcome visitors, leaving the ghost to try and scare them off. The game's central mechanic will involve finding new and creative ways to scare the visitors off.

The game is available for pre-order now and is set to release this fall.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
