Neil Gaiman's 'Wayward Manor' coming July 15

Good Omens

Written by "Good Omens" and "American Gods" author Neil Gaiman, and developed by the studio behind "The Misadventures of PB Winterbottom," "Wayward Manor" is due on Mac and PC in a matter of weeks.

The collaboration sends players back to the 1920s, where they become a ghost investigating the cause of their own death -- familiar territory to fans of "Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective" or "Murdered: Soul Suspect."

Rendered in a painterly art style (courtesy of Eisner winner Chuck BB) and expressively animated, the bustling Budd family totter around their newly purchased Victorian manor while players set about unraveling the mansion's mystery.

LA-based studio The Odd Gentlemen has alo snagged a deal to create the "Homestuck" video game, based on the webcomic of the same name, which raised just short of $2.5m via a fan-funded Kickstarter in 2012 and is still one of the platform's most funded games.
