In Camp Sunshine, a 16-bit horror RPG released in 2016, players assume the role of Jez, who is happily dropped off at summer camp only to awaken in the middle of the night and discover a blood-soaked mess and a killer on the loose.
Reminiscent of Friday the 13th, the crowdfunded retro game was well received during the time of its release. Now it’s developers, Fossil Games, a two-person indie development team with a self-professed love of retro gaming, pixel art and horror films, have launched another Kickstarter campaign to fund a prequel, titled Sunshine Manor. This one will also inspired by ’80s slasher flicks like From Beyond and A Nightmare on Elm Street.
In the new game, the protagonist is Ada MacReady, a young girl trapped in a haunted mansion with her two friends, who must use her psychic abilities to defeat the Shadow Man. Although set in a single location, the mansion has countless hidden rooms, interminable corridors and untold monsters.
According to the developers, Sunshine Manor was a chance to explore many of the gameplay features, including costumes and power-ups, they were unable to include in the original. Now, with Ada’s psychic powers, the possibilities are endless.
