Spooky mansions. Every town has one, and everyone talks about that one time they totally checked it out, only to be thoroughly spooked by the Totally-For-Real-Ghosts inside. If you’re too afraid to explore such a mansion for real, then Manorkept, which recently launched on Kickstarter, will let you play out one of these stories.


Manorkept is an adventure RPG that focuses on character-driven storytelling and solving puzzles. The story follows childhood friends Milo and Adrienne as they explore the local haunted mansion, Morrigan Manor. Together, the girls must solve puzzles, piece together the mystery of the manor, and talk to ghosts.

Facing Her Fears

Manorkept also promises to have positive, prevalent LGBT themes. Indeed, the main character Milo is working up the courage to ask out Adrienne, the breathtaking girl next door. All she has to do is survive a night in the spooky mansion first. How hard can that be?


As shown in the screenshots, the game features a charming pixel art-style. It also seems like Manorkept will have a large variety of environments, including some day-time areas.

Right now, the developers hope to release the game for PC and Mac by November 2017. They’re asking for $30,000 to make that happen, with no stretch goals currently announced.

If you wish to go spelunking in a creepy old mansion, then you should check out the Kickstarter page for more info.
