It’s the first Addams Family video game on console in more than 20 years, but today we get the chance to help save the kooky world that helps power them along with the arrival of The Addams Family: Mansion Mayhem.
The Addams Family: Mansion Mayhem has been created by those at PHL Collective, working with Outright Games to ensure it reaches the largest collection of gamers possible. With launch on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and on PC, there’s pretty much no reason why you shouldn’t be able to get involved.
This is slightly different to what you may expect though and whilst Mansion Mayhem can be played as a solo affair, letting you traverse the mansion and explore the world of The Addams Family at will, it’s when you combine yourself with some friends that it looks to get all the more interesting. You see, competitive minigames are front and centre of the action, as you attempt to prove that your favourite member of the Addams Family is better than the next. It’s gotta be Wednesday, right?
With a ton of puzzles to solve, many relics to hunt down through the mansion and the chance to utilise a host of special abilities that come with each and every one of the family, if you’re up for something hideous, horrible but with huge amounts of humour, it should well be worth your time knocking on the door of The Addams Family: Mansion Mayhem.
And if you want to know more, we sat down for an exclusive interview with the team behind the game. Hear what they had to say in hope it’ll sell the premise even more.
If you are sold, the usual digital stores will then sort you out. The Xbox Store link will enable you to grab the download for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. You’ll also find The Addams Family: Mansion Mayhem present on PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC.
Family game night is about to get terrifyingly exciting! Only you and your friends can help Wednesday, Pugsley, Gomez, and Morticia Addams save the Addams Family Mansion in this hilarious new 3D platforming adventure for up to four players. Explore the mansion’s darkest depths and magical mysteries like never before, to discover secrets and save the legendary house. Use each iconic character’s special abilities, like Gomez’s Mazurka Saber or Wednesday’s pet octopus Socrates, to solve puzzles and find relics that reveal the mansion’s hair-raising history. Play with and against friends in competitive multiplayer minigames that will have you bumping and jumping over each other to win. It’s hideous, it’s horrible, it’s home – so get together and save the Addams Family Mansion for a frighteningly good time!
