There's something worthwhile here, even if it's the unusual power fantasy of being able to haunt an aristocratic family from the safety of the rafters.

A promising concept but dismal execution on just about every level.

There's a kernel of an interesting idea here but it's so grossly underdeveloped that not even the involvement of Neil Gaiman, and a respected developer, can save it.

You'll enjoy turning this game off more than you enjoy any aspect of its gameplay

A host of glitches keep Wayward Manor feeling anything but welcoming.

The game was meant to put players into a spooky kind of mindset, but everything about it is just frightfully boring. The Manor wants all living inhabitants out? Thanks, house; I'll show myself the door.

It's hard to understand why the game exists. Did Gaiman desperately want to attach himself to an ugly, boring puzzle game? Did the Odd Gentleman really think this was the best way to display his work? It's more of a mystery than the actual story of Wayward Manor itself.
