Old-School Graphic Adventure Game ‘An English Haunting’ Announced [Trailer]

For those fancying a return to old-school point-and-click adventure titles, Postmodern Adventures’ An English Haunting looks to fill that niche. No relation to the Charlie Steeds film of the same name, the game is inspired by the works of horror authors such as M.R. James, Algernon Blackwood, and Arthur Machen, and is currently in development for release on Steam.

An English Haunting sees an enthusiasm for spiritualism gripping 1907 London. Séances and theatrical shows where spirits make contact with their living families are all the rage, and there are a legion of investigators trying to discover the secrets of the supernatural. Among them is Professor Patrick Moore, who is faced with a dilemma: he’s got 72 hours to prove the existence of the Great Beyond, or else his Metapsychic Investigations Department will be shut down forever.

Racing against the clock, with the help of a fake medium named Beatrice Shaw, he must complete a prototype of the Box of Revelations, an artefact devised by his missing mentor that enables seeing dimensions hidden in our reality. Building this device will take him from the foggy streets of London to the steep shores of Scotland, and finally to 31 Benwell Street, known as the most haunted manor of England.

From the creator of award-winning Nightmare Frames and Urban Witch Story, An English Haunting features ore than 60 detailed pixel art backgrounds to explore, alongside a cast of over 70 interactible characters. That includes real figures from the period, such as the medium Florence Cook, physicist William Crookes, illusionist Harry Houdini, and even writer Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, whom you will control to solve one of the game’s mysteries.

And if for some reason you’d like to take a bit of a break from the game, you can always hit up Falk’s Horror Books for some reading, perusing an archive of supernatural cases, or going to the theatre to watch  Georges Méliès‘ famous silent film, Évocation Spirite, aka Summoning the Spirits.
