‘Amanda the Adventurer’: DreadXP Announce Release Date For 90s-Themed Found Footage Horror Game

Skinamarink, who? Fans of liminal, nostalgic 90s horror need to get ready for an insane new ‘edutainment-style’ game from our brother site and indie game developer extraordinaire DreadXP. Amanda the Adventurer will be unleashed on horror fans on April 25th, 2023, via PC. Check out the spooky announcement video below.

Developed by MANGLEDmaw GamesAmanda the Adventurer is a found footage style horror title that’s a throwback to the television edutainment era. In the game, players embody Riley Park who inherits their Aunt Kate’s house following her death. The adventure starts with the seemingly banal task of digging through the reclusive aunt’s attic, where Riley comes across a box full of VHS tapes. Watching through them, they discover that the tapes contain episodes of a long-lost children’s show starring the plucky Amanda the Adventurer and her cowardly yet loyal sidekick, Woolie the Sheep. 

At first glance in Amanda the Adventurer, the videos seem innocently childish and wholesome, depicting two best buddies as they explore and learn all about their wonderful world. However, the longer the videos are watched, the more a creeping, sickening feeling emerges that something in the tapes is watching back. Every day’s another adventure!
