If you’re the kind of boil or ghoul, and I assume you are because well, you’re here, that loves retro-style games but finds them hard to play these days as our high-definition televisions don’t seem to support them that well. I mean, let’s get real: Have you ever tried playing Nintendo 64 on a 75 inch 4k flat screen?! Yesterday’s technology doesn’t seem to hold up well with today’s partner products. However, in the same breathe, today’s video game developers can bring that nostalgia home into the modern world and Fossil Games has done just that a few years ago with the 16-bit blood-soaked Horror RPG Camp Sunshine- and now with the prequel Sunshine Manor!
And… it’s set on Halloween. Could it really get any better than THAT?!
Sunshine Manor, is a horror adventure game that’s inspired by the famous horror movies of the 80s’ and serves as a prequel to Camp Sunshine- where you will discover the play of events that inspired the Camp Sunshine massacre years late . You play as Ada, whose night of trick or treating turns into a night of terror when she becomes trapped inside the old Aitken Manor. The gameplay involves using Ada’s latent psychic powers to battle all kinds of fiendish demons, solve puzzles and maybe even defeat the omni-present Shadow Man….who is watching your every move!
Per the press release, some of the features in the game include:
- Discover and explore the ever-changing haunted Sunshine Manor.
- Transport yourself to the Demon Realm and banish hellish fiends!
- Beautiful hand-drawn 8-bit graphics.
- A deadly game of Cat & Mouse where the Demon can be anywhere.
- 80s Soundtrack written specially for this game.
- A fantastic story-driven narrative.
- Devious puzzles to tax your brain box.
- Lots of scares, spooky scenes and nods to iconic horror franchises
