What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access is a fantastic testing bed for the core game to determine which features are most desired and what people want to see next—Phantom Halls will be fully supported and iterated upon in the months ahead as we work towards a full retail build and reimagine more classic horror icons through the game's quirky satirical lens.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect to be adding content to Phantom Halls in Early Access for around 12-18 months tops, looking towards Halloween 2018 for a full retail release.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full retail version of the game will have around 100 quests, 20 playable/unlockable characters, combinable and customizable weaponry, thousands of lines of dialogue, all manner of enviroments, platforming elements and hazards, dozens of enemy types, metroidvania-esq mansion maps and an archive of all your conquests and defeats. There will be various play modes (Free form adventure, Questing, Time Trails, etc) and we also hope to bring multiplayer to the game for the full version, whilst the Early Access offering is focused on the single player campaign.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“This initial early access offering is a first look of what we hope to achieve with Phantom Halls, it's a fully playable procedurally generated horror-comedy game with a quirky cast of characters, memorable monsters, and quite the arsenal of weaponry to discover. While we're launching with just a handful of quests, we plan to add dozens more to the game along with all new features and deeper mechanics to eventually curate lengthy campaigns and quest chains to develop character arcs and explore the in-game narrative more deeply for the full release. Those enjoying the early access offering will get to see the world of Phantom Halls expand and the story unfold as we continually update the game content and explore new features based on community feedback.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game is being offered at an exclusive early bird discounted price for folks who want to get in on the ground floor and join us on this journey as we expand the Phantom Halls mythos. We expect the final retail build to be easily double or triple the early access launch price, and may also increase pricing incrementally as substantial content updates are made on the road to retail release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will be actively encouraging our players to engage with us over social media, through the steam community portals and directly over email to feedback on what they want to see more of in Phantom Halls, the most requested features, characters, monsters, weapons, gameplay modes, and themes will absolutely be prioritised. We've created a thrilling horror comedy adventure that we're excited to build on and we'd love to hear from the community as to what to add next!”

The Evil Dead 2 x Phantom Halls update includes:

  • New environments and locations from Evil Dead 2, including the infamous
  • Evil Dead cabin, faithfully recreated in Phantom Halls' trademark papercraft style!

EGX Birmingham

Meanwhile, just a reminder that we're heading to EGX in Birmingham, UK, later this week.

From Thursday until Sunday, we'll be there in the show's Rezzed area, showing off the Evil Dead 2 x Phantom Halls update. As with EGX Rezzed in London earlier this year, we've got a booth with four screens - so be sure to come check us out in the Rezzed Indie Area if you're attending.

And remember - the game's on-sale until after EGX!

Check out the update, and be sure to let us know what you think and leave a review! Your feedback is directly contributing to making Phantom Halls better!

RIP

Patch Notes! v0.10 is coming at 8am PST... Groovy!

"Step right up! Two cans of Whoopass for the price of one!" - Ash Williams

That's right folks, the Evil Dead 2 update is almost here - this is what you can expect to see in-game later today when we go live at 8am PST.

  • Added the Cursed Forest environment.
  • Added the Cabin, the first new structure to explore beyond the Phantom Halls mansion.
  • Added the quest "Read By Dawn" for Ash.
  • Added the quest "Dead Language" for the Nerd.
  • Added the quest "DIY Hard" for the Hillbilly.
  • Added reel 2 reel tape player, which unnerves characters that are nearby, reducing accuracy and slowing melee attack speed.
  • Added the possessed deer head, which can come to life and gore you.
  • Added the corrupted tree, which can crush unsuspecting bystanders.
  • Added Deadite enemies.
  • Added the ability to quickly switch to the next, usable weapon (The key is bound to Z by default, but will have to be manually bound if keybindings already exist)
  • Fixed erroneous Ash dialogue trigger (Spoke about machete when looted bat)
  • Fixed an issue where characters could "change directions" while busy.
  • Reduced cool down on Ash's chainsaw attack, revamped animation and extended duration of damage dealt, but it does need to rev up first!
  • Full polish pass on giblets and splatter. It's Evil Dead 2, we needed more gore!

There will be an additional update this week featuring the Gooseneck Deadite boss in another Ash quest with the Kandarian Dagger quest item and some other polish improvements.

RIP!

About This Game

Enter a haunted mansion and prepare to face the undead terrors that stalk the phantom halls! Squad up to survive the night using whatever you can find, but remember - you can’t kill what you can’t see, so be sure to bring a flashlight…

With fast-paced, action-packed gameplay and a 3D papercraft visual motif, Phantom Halls sees players take on the roles of multiple characters at once - with each character’s actions assigned to a different key. It’s a real-time Worms with the procedurally generated chaos of Spelunky!

Currently in Steam Early Access, the game will be updated regularly with new features and content. Incendium will work directly with the community to prioritise updates and refine the game’s direction.

The Early Access edition includes a free Evil Dead 2 licensed content pack, allowing them to play as the groovy hero from the sky, Ash Williams with his chainsaw and boomstick on hand (or stump!) to saw and blast through a series of unique Evil Dead 2 inspired quests being added throughout the Early Access period - start today by facing off with Evil Ash in 'Are you talking to me?' !

    • OS: Windows XP SP2+
