Delve Into The Incomprehensible

With inspiration from Junji Ito, the eldritch horrors of H.P. Lovecraft and a retro art style made completely within Microsoft Paint, World of Horror is a game we’ve had our eyes on for a long time. You’ll be able to play as 14 different characters all with their own mysteries to discover. Each character has different stats and perspectives of the blight before them, making it incredibly replayable.

Showcasing a blend of roguelite mechanics and turn-based RPG, you’ll have to prove your survival instincts with melee combat or scavenged weapons found on location. Every decision could mean life, death or worse… Madness, forcing you to think tactically to survive. Explore every dark corner of Shiokawa to discover trinkets and uncover clues to help you reach the least harmful of multiple endings.

We can’t wait to succumb to the madness that is World of Horror on October 19th, 2023. Will you descend with us?
