Upcoming hand-drawn horror game Mundaun has finally got a release date – and there’s not long left to wait!
Coming from (mostly) solo developer, Michel Ziegler of Hidden Fields, Mundaun is a hand-drawn horror which will have you on the edge of your seat. Last year, GameByte was treated to a hands-off preview of the game, and since then it’s definitely been one we’ve had our eyes on!
Mundaun takes place in a dark, secluded valley in the Swiss Alps, where you’re tasked with solving a family mystery brought to light after a fire.
Our time with the game gave us definite Amnesia: The Dark Descent vibes, with shadow-like beings stalking you around the village. During the demo, our protagonist took refuge in a cabin – and tried to avoid looking out of the windows so as to escape detection. Mundaun uses a fear system to keep players rooted to the spot, and we’re keen to see how this plays out in the full game!
Along with its exciting gameplay, Mundaun already stands apart from the crowd with its incredible visuals.
“Michel has hand-drawn every asset in the game, in pencil,” Ethan Stearns, EVP of Content at publisher MWM Interactive told us last year. “You hear that sometimes for 2D sprite games, but this is actually a 3D game, so he has a process in which he creates texture maps of templates, and then hand-draws them in pencil, then scans them into the computer and then wraps them around the 3D objects.”
If Mundaun is whetting your whistle then you’ll be glad to know it’s coming soon!
