After what feels like the longest time, World Of Horror is finally getting a release of sorts from Ysbryd Games into Steam's Early Access. We've been checking this game out every six months for a couple of years at PAX events, as it reminds us of old '90s PC read-and-click adventures. Every time we've played it, it has been horrifyingly awesome. Now we're finally getting an early look at a somewhat completed version of the game as it will come to Early Access on February 20th. You can get a better look at the game below with the new announcement trailer.
