Elie Gould at Tech Radar highlights the upcoming release date of WORLD OF HORROR, the unsettling cosmic horror retro RPG from developer panstasz and publisher Ysbryd Games, launching just in time for Halloween on October 19, 2023, across PC, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4|5 consoles!
Set in a small seaside town, this roguelike is reminiscent of the unsettling fictional town named Kurouzu-cho seen in Junji Ito’s popular spiral-centric horror manga seriesUzumaki. The art-style ofWorld of Horroris also clearly a homage to Junji Ito’s works as it emulates a manga in its grainy vintage Macintosh graphics.
World of Horrorhas the potential to climb its way onto ourbest horror games listwith its vintage and eerie art style and cosmic horror-esque mind-bending narrative. If you’re a fan of Junji Ito’s sickening horror or out-of-this-world mysteries then this is one to look forward to.
