Atari’s Haunted House remake haunting consoles and PC today

Passing from its original home on the Atari 2600 today is Haunted House, as Atari’s remake possesses modern consoles and PC.


Is this one timely or what? Atari picked the spookiest season on the calendar to launch its remake of the classic 2600 game Haunted House, which presents a game that’s been completely rebuilt from the ground up. The publisher is touring the original as a game that might have been “the first ever survival-horror title” back for a fresh from the grave, isometric adventure.

Just as with the original though, the emphasis is not on action, but stealth. Staying hidden from the ghosts and ghouls of the manor, while solving puzzles to progress is key to making your way through the title Haunted House.

And as you’ll see in the launch trailer below, all of that is looking both kid-friendly and frighteningly fun…

In Haunted House, players take control of Lyn Graves, the precocious niece of legendary treasure hunter Zachary Graves. Lyn visits her uncle’s mansion with her closest friends, only to find the massive house overrun with ghouls and monsters who quickly grab and spirit away her friends. In order to free her uncle and her friends, Lyn must find the shattered pieces of a magical urn and put them back together.
