Workhouse Games Tease The Horrors & Board Of Awful Orphanage

February 6, 2018 by brennon

Workhouse Games have now posted their teaser trailer (see above) for the upcoming board game project, The Awful Orphanage!

The Awful Orphanage - Verity

We've talked a bit about the game before, but as a heads up, it will have you playing as people trapped in a terrible orphanage. Your only means of escape is to dodge the orphanage's many horrors and find the gun that can be used to kill Miss Prendergast, thereby ending her terrible schemes.

Game Board Revealed

We also got a great look at how the game board is going to look, showing off some of the artwork that will adorn the rooms that you'll be sneaking through.

Awful Orphanage - Game Set-Up

The game seems like it is going to be a nice mix of semi-cooperative action, and perfect backstabbing moments as you throw your friends under the bus so that you can claim victory and be the one that escapes the orphanage with your minds and bodies intact!

Here's a closer look at just two of the rooms from the game board too...

Awful Orphanage - Ms Ps Study

I love the haunting look that they've got for the game tiles here, giving them an oppressive feel which is very apt of course for this game.

Awful Orphanage - Orderlies Room

Even The Orderlies Rest Room looks rather spooky with the shadows cast from the light in the centre of the room. It's a nice detail to make each of their chairs look different too, something you wouldn't need to do, but it adds another dose of character to the game.
