Waxworks: Curse of the Ancestors

Hi guys,

…our game Waxworks: Curse of the Ancestors is coming out! Its a Early Access of the game made by 2 full-time people.

This development was a long and tough journey, but we are super happy we can finally release it. You can see video and images on the Steam page and if you like it, please put it in wish-list and follow.

You might be familiar with the Waxworks (1992) from HorrorSoft ltd. and you are right, this is a new version of the game. We have signed a license agreement with AdventureSoft, that made it possible! Exciting.

Waxworks: Curse of the Ancestors is a first-person, action adventure RPG game. The game is divided into five different time periods: Ancient Egyptian Period, Medieval Transylvania Period, Victorian England Period, Industrial Mine Period and Ixona’s Period. Three of those time periods have a mixture of puzzle-solving and combat, while the Victorian England and Ixona ones are more puzzle-solving oriented.

In each time period, the player needs to pick up items, solve puzzles, avoid deadly encounters and engaging in combat with various opponents. The player can use Uncle Boris’ crystal ball to get hints. The main objective is to collect a special item from the evil twin ancestors before venturing into the Ixona Period to undo the family curse.

Based on the popular 1992 game developed by Horror Soft, Waxworks: Curse of the Ancestors dares you to take the ultimate quest and discover the secret of the Waxworks and lift the curse of Ixona that plagues your family. Try to ignore the gnawing fear in your gut, the feeling of impending disaster that threatens to overwhelm you. The ghastly exhibits inside hold the key to your fate.

Explore the intricate passages, alleys, and tunnels that make up the Waxworks –conquer four levels of Pharaoh, Jack the Ripper, Mines and Dracula to be able to catch the Witch and kill her. This is not an easy task and you will have to fight with vicious creatures and mutants, who will be more than happy to rip you apart. This is a true gory horror game, which has no mercy and it follows classic horror movies style from the 80s. Be warned that once you enter an exhibit, the only way out is to solve the puzzle, win a terrible battle, or die a horrible death. When you complete an exhibit, you will be transported back into your Uncle Boris’ wax museum ready for your next adventure.

Thank you for your support!
