World of Horror Will Finally Release in Summer 2023

According to creator panstasz and publisher Ysbryd Games, the well-regarded independent game World of Horror will end its three-year Early Access phase this summer. World of Horror had a protracted development period before its initial release in February 2020, but fans have been ecstatic about every new update during that time.

If you’re not tuned into it yet, World of Horror is probably going to be one of those games you hear about from people for years to come. One of the only games in its space, it’s a fusion of horror that’s so weird it’s sometimes goofy with a stylized aesthetic and semi-roguelike survival horror RPG gameplay.

Its most recent update was in late October of this year, Blood Moon, and added new items, mysteries, and character origins to afflict the randomized horror town.

It describes itself as a “1-bit love letter to Junji Ito and H.P. Lovecraft” that has “a hellish roguelite reality with turn-based combat and unforgiving choices.” It’s perhaps most interesting to many because events are governed by a deck of event cards you can control that decide what kinds of horror occur in the remote city of Shiokawa, Japan.

It’s a little bit your job to thwart that oncoming apocalypse, by the way: A little bit. The mystery is randomized, each with its own set of endings seeing the world destroyed, saved, or made a bit worse.

You can find World of Horror on itch.io and Steam for $15. There’s a demo on itch.io, if you like that idea. You can also check out the World of Horror website at wohgame.com and follow its creator on Twitter.
