Acclaimed author Neil Gaiman’s Wayward Manor will launch on Steam for PC and Mac OSX July 15, developer The Odd Gentlemen announced on their Tumblr account.

Wayward Manor is a puzzle-adventure game that follows a ghost as he tries to find inventive ways to scare away the newest owners of his house—all while trying to discover how he slipped into the afterlife in the first place. Wayward Manor was partially crowdfunded through 3,000 fans pre-buying the game when it was first announced last fall.

This marks the first videogame foray for Gaiman, who has written a variety of comics, novels, films, and TV shows. Some of his best known works include the long-running Sandman and limited series 1602 comic books, the Newbery and Carnegie medal–winning The Graveyard Book, Neverwhere, American Gods, and a couple of Doctor Who episodes for good measure. Developer The Odd Gentlemen are likely best known for their games The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom and the PlayStation Home game Slap Happy Sam.

Wayward Manor is being published by Moonshark, who have also announced a tablet version of the game will be coming at some point, but have yet to set a release date just yet.
