Neil Gaiman, author of The Sandman graphic novels, American Gods, and all-around amazing storyteller, is venturing into games with Wayward Manor, announced today by the writer himself.

“For quite a while there’s been a story that I’ve wanted to tell, something inspired by the kinds of films that I loved when I was a kid,” Gaiman said in a press release. “But I kept running into the same problem: it didn’t really feel like a novel. It felt like something that you would have to experience yourself. So today, I’m proud to announce my first-ever game, Wayward Manor.”

The Odd Gentleman, the studio behind The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom, will be developing the game in collaboration with publisher Moonshark.

Wayward Manor is set in a 1920’s Victorian Gothic pastoral estate, and puts players in control of a ghost in search of the after-life. The more said ghost scares the Wayward Manor’s inhabitants, the more he learns about his own death and the after-life.

The first part of Wayward Manor is slated for release on PC, Mac, and tablets “just in time for the holidays.”
