The Glass Staircase – PS2-Style Horror Game Announced for Consoles

The Glass StaircaseThe Glass Staircase, a short-form old-school psychological horror game from Puppet Combo arrives on all consoles on Friday, May 24th.

Taking place sometime after 1922, the game takes place in a dilapidated estate converted into an orphanage where four girls attempt to survive long enough to complete their chores and find a new home.

Rather than focusing on grotesque slasher horror, The Glass Staircase is a surreal and atmospheric game.

You take control of the girls as they navigate the horrors of a orphanage. Each day, they’re given tasks to complete but it quickly becomes clear that it is anything but routine for them. Unknowable horrors have punctuated the history of the house, and the girls about to learn about them the hard way.
