In Haunted House: Cryptic Graves, gamers are gifted with supernatural powers to purge the spirits and monsters that haunt the abandoned estate of Abaddon Grange, while solving mysteries to help the Ghost avenge his murder and release his spirit from the house. As players make their way through the enigmatic, haunted estate in the role of Anya Graves, heir to the estate, their gameplay experience will include:

  • Communication with the dead by using their character's special powers, including the ability to touch objects to glean information about their previous owner.
  • Exploration of mysterious rooms and corridors throughout the haunted mansion, including the catacombs, garden maze and laboratories, slowly uncovering the truth about the estate's haunted history.
  • Crafting powerful potions using the four elements of Alchemy -- Fire, Air, Water and Earth -- that unlock the ability to explore different passageways and gain protection from deadly apparitions.
  • Evasion of horrid ghosts and enemies that possess supernatural abilities, including the Silent Stalkers, Jack the Ripper and Witch.

Gordon Rennie, an award-winning comic book and videogames writer, and the scriptwriter of Killzone, wrote the re-imagined Haunted House: Cryptic Graves. The game was developed by Dreampainters, the seasoned team behind the critically acclaimed survival-horror game, Anna.
