Junji-Ito-inspired World of Horror leaves PC early access in October

World of Horror, the horror-themed roguelike RPG developed by Paweł Koźmiński, is set to leave early access on October 19th for PC, and will be released that same day for PlayStation and Nintendo Switch as well.  The game was first introduced as an early access game over three years ago, and since then it has steadily increased in size and popularity with the introduction of new features, events, and stories. The game’s five random mysteries send players on a quest to discover the mysteries behind a town under attack by otherworldly monsters. Players must use their intelligence, skill, and any weapons and items they find along the way to fight back against the cosmic god. In this regard, World of Horror is very much like a 1-bit version of the popular board game Arkham Horror, albeit with Lovecraftian elements swapped out for the unique and distinct style of artist Junji Ito.

Every time the game is played, the five available mysteries are randomly generated and feature a series of unexpected encounters, making for a uniquely terrifying and unpredictable experience. Its 1-bit design and innovative mechanics make it immersive and atmospheric, and the game is endlessly entertaining with its unpredictable gameplay. The mod support on PC is also robust, meaning that there is plenty of room for expansion in the future. 

Players can experience the horror-inspired World of Horror on PC, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 and 5 for $19.99 USD. The game’s developer and publisher, Ysbryd Games, have not yet revealed if there will be any differences from the current PC build. However, with the official release just around the corner, fans eagerly await updates and further details from the game’s creator.
