Publisher Ysbryd Games and developer panstasz has announced a release window for their black and white retro horror roguelite RPG inspired from H.P. Lovecraft and Junji Ito titled WORLD OF HORROR. The game has been in early access since early 2020, has received large updates throughout the past two years. Oozing with style with the 1-bit pixel art and black and white visuals, WORLD OF HORROR features hellish turn based combat and new forms of cosmic horror in every playthrough. Being a huge fan of both Lovecraft and Ito, I cannot wait for this game's full release!

According to the official Steam Page, take a look at some key features:

  • Choose from five unique characters and solve over 10 mysteries in Early Access.
  • Most mysteries harbor multiple endings - for those that survive long enough.
