WORLD OF HORROR announcement trailer

WORLD  of  HORROR
Behold the dreadful tale of WORLD OF HORROR, the unsettling cosmic horror retro RPG from panstasz and Ysbryd Games, headed to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Steam in 2019. http://wohgame.com/ 

The Old Gods are reawakening, clawing their way back into a world that’s spiraling into a mysterious madness. In a small, seaside town of Japan, the population’s sanity is dwindling and otherworldly, grotesque creatures terrorize those who call the place home. It’s the end of the world and the only solution is to confront the terror reigning over the apocalypse. 

Navigate this hellish, roguelite reality through turn-based combat and unforgiving choices. Experiment with the events of a playthrough by building a deck of event cards to discover different outcomes for your battles against the darkness. Different decks may even unlock new mysteries or clues. 

WORLD OF HORROR features branching stories with five playable characters to brave the chaos, each with their own story and a different perspective on the events that unfold. Unravel puzzles and mysteries through spells that sacrifice sanity. Uncover disturbing and shocking clues. Diligently search every nook and cranny, scouring for helpful items that may come in handy in another twisted encounter. 

Experience the quiet horror of this love letter to the works of Junji Ito and H.P. Lovecraft. WORLD OF HORROR is free of typical jump scares, relying solely on its unnerving environments and amorphous terrors to create a gnawing sense of dread. Complimented by a haunting chiptune score and a 1-bit art style with a variety of available palettes, WORLD OF HORROR presents a series of frightening and unsettling accounts that linger well after stepping away.

  1. Definitely has a very interesting art style but really not sure if this will be a game I would want to play.
    Also if you haven't played "Dead Cells" then you are missing out one of the best indie games of the year, it's so freaking awesome.
