Game Informer’s Daniel Tack experienced the 1-bit frights of WORLD OF HORROR at PAX West 2019. The unsettling cosmic horror retro RPG from Panstasz and Ysbryd Games beckons players with haunting atmosphere and unsettling visuals for roguelite playthroughs and unexpected terrors:

“With zero reliance on jump scares (as that would be pretty hard to do with the 1-bit aesthetic in the first place), World of Horror is all about setting the mood instead, with grim atmosphere and disturbing events. . . . World of Horror’s strange 1-bit curiosities excel at snagging the eye of the passing crowds, and horror experiences are generally difficult to relay on a loud, incredibly busy show floor. The fact that World of Horror somehow managed to do that as the hordes consumed convention center pizza and trampled by with swag bags laden with merch is a testimony to its potential – and I can’t wait to check out more when it launches on PC this year.”

WORLD OF HORROR will terrorize the town in 2019 on Steam for Windows PC, with Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 releases also planned. For more on this love letter to the works of Junji Ito and H.P. Lovecraft, enter the official website and follow @YsbrydGames and @Panstasz—if you dare!
