Whispering Willows coming to Linux, Mac, Windows PC, and Ouya June 17

After a Successful Kickstarter earning over $20,000 with 750 backers, the #puzzle-based #horror game Whispering Willows is now available on Ouya for $14.99, developer Night Light Interactive announced today.

The 2D atmospheric title stars a young girl named Elena, who has the power to project her spirit outside of her body. Players will use Elena’s abilities to work through obstacles and puzzles.

“In her spectral form, Elena can interact with the benevolent spirits and wicked wraiths that used to dwell within the walls of the sinister Willows Mansion — lost souls, stuck in time and space, who hold the secrets that Elena will need to traverse the terrifying old manor,” the game’s description reads. “Players need to make use of Elena’s corporeal and ethereal forms to overcome obstacles, solve the riddles of the mansion’s enigmatic specters and find Elena’s lost father.”

demo of the game is available through Night Light Interactive’s website.

The game can be preordered for only $10 via Night Light Interactive store — and it’s 100% DRM-free.  Also, those who place their orders before the game’s release will automatically get some really cool loot, like access to the Beta versions of Whispering Willows, and that warm feeling you get from supporting hard-working, independent developers!  Plus, you can order the  Special Edition for $25 which includes an exclusive wallpaper, digital artbook, and soundtrack to the game.

Whispering Willows was featured as part of Ouya’s GDC 2014 lineup earlier this year. The game, which has already been Greenlit on Steam, launches for Linux, Mac and Windows PC June 17.
