Neil Gaiman - of Sandman, Neverwhere and wearing black fame - is making a game. Not by himself, of course - he's teamed up with The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom/Flea Symphony devs The Odd Gentlemen. The result is Wayward Manor, a multi-part puzzle/adventure game where you play as a ghost trying to rid an old house of its living occupants. Gaiman cites classic films like Blithe Spirit as inspiration in his introductory video, but the premise reminds me of Capcom's excellent Gregory Horror Show, which sadly never made its way to PC. The first part's due this Autumn.
The Odd Gentlemen
“I hate what time-messing games do to me. Afterwards, for every real-world problem I encounter I expect to be able to slow things down, rewind and undo, or, using Winterbottom’s core device, create clones of myself to get past it. I’m not writing this, by the way. Craig #3 is.”
