With only five days left on its successful Kickstarter campaign, Sunshine Manor is officially coming to the Nintendo Switch, among other consoles, thanks to hitting its initial fundraising goal.
For those unaware, Sunshine Manor is the prequel to Camp Sunshine, another 16-bit horror RPG by Fossil Games that is a bit more graphic and intense than this current Kickstarter campaign. It looks like the two games will only be similar by their art style and horror gameplay, but otherwise, Sunshine Manor looks to be a classic-feeling along the same lines as Friday the 13th on the NES.
What is Sunshine Manor?
Sunshine Manor is the prequel to Camp Sunshine, a love letter to retro gaming and classic 1980s horror films. The game takes inspiration from movies such as From Beyond, Friday the 13th, and A Nightmare on Elm Street, while mixing gameplay mechanics from games such as the beloved – and long-running – The Legend of Zelda, Resident Evil, and Silent Hill series.
When it comes to horror games, this one is all about the tension rather than purely relying on jump scares. Although we do have a few of those too! The game aims to deliver many features that will help it differ from your typical horror games, with things such as:
- Beautiful hand-drawn 8-bit pixel art
- Explore a changing Mansion and journey between the mortal and demon realms
- A fantastic 1980s synthwave soundtrack written just for Sunshine Manor
- Power-ups and Costumes to help you in your quest
- Cross paths with a host of unique characters
- With a bit of comedy in there as well!
You can check out more about the game and the campaign on their Kickstarter page. This looks to be a wonderful new indie title that would be perfect to play on Halloween! Or any time, if you are a fan of horror games.
