Bringing on some 8-bit inspired horror, Sunshine Manor from Fossil Games is confirmed to be releasing this Fall and the developer put out a new trailer.

Another game that was successfully funded from Kickstarter, Sunshine Manor is a standalone prequel to their previous game Camp Sunshine. It's designed as a love-letter to retro gaming and classic 1980s horror films. Taking 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. Check out the recent trailer below:
