The Excavation of Hob's Barrow will release for PC, Mac, and Linux in 2022. A point and click mystery adventure game inspired by folk horror and English folklore, published by Wadjet Eye Games! (formerly known as INCANTAMENTUM)

Check out the teaser trailer here.

Check out the Official website here.

Quote
Antiquarian Thomasina Bateman is writing a book on the barrows of England, documenting the treasures she finds buried within. When an intriguing letter summons her to the small village of Bewlay, tucked away in the remote countryside, she sets off by train with her assistant a day behind.

Upon her arrival, however, the mysterious man who summoned her is nowhere to be found. Her assistant never arrives. A stubborn landowner refuses access to the barrow, and the locals are wary of this woman who is traveling alone and (gasp!) wears trousers.

The excavation of Hob’s Barrow is off to a rocky start. And then Thomasina starts having strange dreams…

Features:

A dark, complex and evolving storyline featuring interwoven elements from real English folklore.
Traditional point and click adventure game puzzles and interactions, with an easy modern interface.
A cast of intriguing characters, from suspicious villagers to sickly vicars to lordly landowners, all with their own unique stories and motives.
A distinct folk horror tone and grounding.
Evocative pixel-art graphics, featuring cut-scenes and engaging animations.
A suitably atmospheric original soundtrack from the musician behind the award-winning "Football Game" soundtrack.
Fiends in the furrows, the smell of damp soil, and a cat or two.



Happy Gaming!

Check this one out and keep your eye on its release…. Can’t go wrong with Wadjet.


Would that I could be the peacemaker in your soul that I might turn the discord and the rivalry of your elements into oneness and melody

Thanks Ana!

This game's been on my wishlist since Oct 2020 because I like Cloak and Dagger. I can't see how adding Wadjet Eye to the mix can hurt!

In addition to producing, Dave Gilbert (WadjetEye) is directing the voice overs so they should be excellent.
