Legendary writer Neil Gaiman, best known for American Gods and the Sandman comics, has announced his first videogame, Wayward Manor, an adventure-puzzle game set from the Roaring 20's into the future, inspired by such films as Arsenic and Old Lace and The Man Who Came to Dinner.

According to Gaiman in his introductory video, "Itís lighthearted. It's goofy. Itís nice to flip points of view. Normally in a game, if youíre in a haunted house, you are going to be walking through it intrepidly with your flashlight, your bell-book and candle, and your copy of the Necronomicon and you keep going until you find the ghost. In this one all you want to do is be left in peace with your lovely house and be left alone. I donít want to give anything away but itís safe to say you were killed in the 1880s and you were killed for a reason.Ē

In Wayward Manor, the gamer plays a ghost who wants to rid his house of all of the living intruders, a dysfunctional family of misfits and eccentrics. Players must uncover their deepest anxieties to absorb their victim's fears to drive them crazy.
