Developed by Fummy, here’s an overview of the story and features:


A young girl, Viola, is drawn inexorably to a mysterious manor that seems to change behind her back. It is a place of pain, turmoil and death. Plumb its detestable depths and abominable history. Untangle riddles that bar your perilous path. And flee the hellish halls of The Witch’s House.




  • The broadly loved classic of the genre finally makes its way to home consoles.
  • A horror atmosphere wherein players solve puzzles based on clues found in the house.
  • Reimagined graphics that make for a beautifully terrifying experience.
  • Unlockable difficulty modes with new events and dialogue.
  • Violence and gore that are not recommended for the squeamish. Player discretion advised.
  • Sudden deaths that lurk around every corner and await every misstep.
  • Items must be used deliberately as players solve the puzzles for themselves.
  • Fixed save points (just keep an eye out for the talking black cat).
  • Head phones *strongly* recommended.
