WORLD OF HORROR receives massive update; 1.0 launch in 2022

by: Henry -

WORLD OF HORROR is a black and white retro horror roguelite RPG inspired from H.P. Lovecraft and Junji Ito, developed by panstasz and published by Ysbryd Games. The game has been in early access since early 2020, but the largest update since its early access launch just dropped, titled "THE CEASELESS CURSE".

Here's what the newest update includes:

  • 2 new mysteries - Take care of a weird friend with a dark secret and explore a seemingly abandoned mansion full of grotesque paintings
  • New modding support - Draft custom mysteries, create characters, and chain together events and combat encounters
  • New characters - A witch and ex-cultist join the playable roster, now at 11 heroes
  • New events - Character-exclusive events build on their backstories and roles in the city. This is the biggest batch of new events since Early Access launch!
  • Challenges - New game mode pits experienced players against carefully designed playthroughs with devilish mechanics
  • City planning - Customize the game with additional actions

WORLD OF HORROR is launching its 1.0 version in 2022 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, itch.io, GOG, Windows Store, and Steam for PC and Mac.
