MANGLEDmaw Games and DreadXP shared the news today that the short indie horror game, Amanda The Adventurer, which came out a year ago and has since taken YouTube by storm racking up billions of views, will be coming to Consoles and mobile devices this year.

This escape room first-person horror puts players in the shoes of Riley Park, who has recently inherited their late aunt’s home. Riley finds a VCR and an old VHS tape with episodes from an early 2000s children’s show. The show is not the highest-budget production from the looks of it. It appears to have been made locally and features a little girl named Amanda and her loyal yet shy best friend, Wooly the Sheep. While the episode appears charming and simple on the surface, an uneasiness settles in as Riley realizes that Amanda and Wooly seem to be communicating directly through the television set. A gnawing feeling in their mind presses them to stop, but Riley is compelled to continue watching the tapes. It’s almost as if Amanda needs something, and Riley becomes fascinated with discovering what that may be.





The game features:

  • A short yet intricate single-player horror experience.
  • Animated tapes that tell an unsettling story, all under the guise of a welcoming children’s cartoon.
  • Classic, 90s-style CGI that recalls a simpler era of animation.
  • Characters who interact directly with the viewer—a dream come true for any 90s kid…or is it a nightmare?
  • Challenging, escape room-style puzzles using clues hidden within the tapes.


Amanda The Adventurer is out now on PC but is set to launch on all console platforms, iOS, and Android later this year as Amanda The Adventurer 2 is currently in development.
