To celebrate Halloween and recent developments in transitioning the failed Kickstarter game Haunts: The Manse Macabre into an open-source project, Mob Rules Games' Rick Dakan has released a playable version for Windows, according a post on the game's Kickstarter blog.
"Well, [Halloween is] not as happy as we had originally planned, but happier than I feared it would be," Dakan wrote. "I want to thank all of you for sticking with us and for all the kindness and support you've offered in the past few weeks. It's been just plain amazing."
In the post, he links to the new Haunts: The Manse Macabre development community page, where he's made the game's source code and a playable version of the game available. You can download some new wallpapers at Mob Rules Games' website.
Earlier this month, Dakan announced that development had halted because the studio had overspent and its programmers had quit. In an update posted on the Haunts Kickstarter blog on Oct. 23, 2012, Dakan announced that the studio intends to finish the game as an open-source project.
