Σχετικά με αυτό το παιχνίδι

Wayward Manor invites you to jump into the afterlife of a disgruntled ghost, trying to reclaim his house from its newfound owners. Set in the 1920s, this puzzle/adventure game transports players to an era of dark screwball comedy where they must unlock the secrets of a twisted mansion. Players will discover the quirks of Wayward Manor’s unwelcome guests and choose how to prey on their darkest fears.

Story
The Budds, a dysfunctional family of misfits and eccentrics, have brought their own abysmal possessions into your humble abode and stifled your power. Each level is a playground for scares where players earn fear to take back control of the room. If you want free reign over your mansion once again, you must drive the Budds mad with fear using only your imagination and their hideous belongings.

History
What started as a Lego prototype that The Odd Gentlemen and Neil Gaiman played together one afternoon, soon became a unique collaboration to tell a story through a non­linear puzzle/adventure game hybrid, where the player learns about the characters and world through their observations and discovery. First launched on the website WhoHauntsNeil.com, Wayward Manor has been slowly unveiling its story and world to a whole new audience. Wayward Manor is Neil Gaiman’s first foray into video games.

Features
● Discover 9 quirky inhabitants each with their own desires, fears, and anxieties.
● Possess ghastly furnishings to manipulate the Budds into dire consequences.
● Level up as you absorb fear to take control of each room
● Pleasantly dark tone reminiscent of old Hollywood whodunit mysteries.
● Five floors, each filled with new items to posses and new ways to terrify.
● Find secret scares and multiple solutions to every puzzle
● Musically themed characters each represented by their own instrument.
● A story crafted and narrated by Neil Gaiman
● Featuring art from the Eisner award winning artist Chuck BB

I wasn't impressed with this game from The Odd Gentleman and Neil Gaiman. It seems to me if you're going to make a game with Neil Gaiman, you want to take advantage of Neil Gaiman's story-telling and character-creating expertise. A puzzle style game, which is what they made with Wayward Manor, is not a good vehicle for a great story and characters, in my opinion. I was hoping Wayward Manor was going to be more like an adventure game, where plot and character would have an opportunity to shine. Based on this game, I'm fearful of what The Odd Gentlemen are going to do to the classic King's Quest series. Their website says they "strive to become masters of the short form gaming experience." Short form? Is that another way of describing mobile gaming?

Wow this is terrible. I am such a huge Neil Gaiman fan that even when I read other reviews marking this as terrible I bought it anyway. I'm not sure what happened here. How did they make such an insufferable game? I made it through exactly 17 painful minutes of repeatedly clicking on the same highlighted ghostable items in a room listening to the same annoying sound effects over and over in order to slowly fill up a scare bar made of skulls so that it would beat that level before utterly giving up on this game. I wish steam had a refund policy. This could have been a sandwich or a terry pratchett novel. I wasted this $10. Don't do like I did. You could just open a screenshot of the game, put on a halloween music playlist, and click on one spot of the image for 10 minutes and imagine yourself to have beat that level instead of playing this game. It would be as interesting and less annoying.

Totally adorable. I have a 7 year old daughter and an 8 year old nephew who played the game with me and we had a good time. Finished it quickly but there are still lots of little things to go back and discover.

The good: Occasionally challenging puzzles, particularly if you're an achievement hunter. Cute art style and some fun bits of narration.

The bad: Controls are clunky. Music and sound effects get very repetitive. Some of the achievements appear to be broken. Game got a bit grind-y feeling by the end. While the art style/direction was cool, the execution is poor.

General info: I became interested in Wayward Manor (like many, I suspect) because Neil Gaiman was attached to the project. His writing gives a few fun moments and snide comments, but it definitely gets pushed to the rear in favor of the gameplay, such as it is. When I heard Gaiman was helping with this game, I assumed it would be heavy on the narrative with thrills and chills; this definitely seems like a children's game. The whole thing is just very simplistic. I really, really wanted to like this game, but I'm just not feeling it. This game had a lot of potential and I can't help but think they wasted it.

Overall: Probably wouldn't recommend this unless you're some kind of Neil Gaiman completionist.

Μια τεράστια χαμένη ευκαιρία για το ντεμπούτο του Mαέστρου Gaiman στο χώρο των video games, το Wayward Manor είναι ένας τίτλος χωρίς κοινό τελικά. Απογοητεύει τους φάνς του Gaiman με την έλλειψη σεναρίου, πλοκής και διαλόγων και αφήνει ξεκρέμαστους τους φίλους των puzzle/casual παιχνιδιών με την συγκλονιστική του μετριότητα.
