Acclaimed indie world of horror (opens in new tab) will leave Early Access for three years next summer, according to developer panstasz and publisher Ysbryd Games. World of Horror had a long development cycle and was first released in February 2020, but followers have been enthralled with each new update during that time.

If you aren’t already tuned in, World of Horror will likely be one of those games that you’ll be hearing about from people for years to come. One of the few games in its field, it’s an amalgamation of horror so weird it’s goofy at times, with a stylized aesthetic and semi-roguelike survival-horror RPG gameplay.
The last update was in late October this year, Blood Moon, adding new items, secrets, and character origins to infest the random horror city.
It describes itself as a “1-bit love letter to Junji Ito and HP Lovecraft” that has “a hellish roguelite reality with turn-based combat and unforgiving choices”. It’s perhaps most interesting to many because events are controlled by a deck of event cards that you control, which decide what types of horrors take place in the remote town of Shiokawa, Japan.
By the way, thwarting this impending apocalypse is a little bit your job: a little bit. The mystery is randomized, each with its own endings that will destroy the world, save it, or make it a little bit worse.
You can find World of Horror on juck.io and steam (opens in new tab) for $15. There’s a demo on itch.io if you like this idea. You can also visit the World of Horror website at wohgame.com and follow its creator on Twitter.
