Original post (9/24): If you’re a fan of 90’s horror games on the PC, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve played DreamForge’s psychological point-and-click horror game Sanitarium. If you’d much rather play this creepy title on a mobile device, though, good news! DotEmu has just announced its plans to bring Sanitarium to both Android and iOS on Thursday, October 29th… just in time for Halloween.
The game will have an all-new interface, touch and controller support, an automatic saving system, a new inventory system and even optional hints. You’ll also be able to play it in both full screen and original viewing modes, and there will also be a set of achievements for you to complete to keep the game interesting.
In case you’re unfamiliar, Sanitarium was originally developed for the PC by DreamForge Intertainment in 1998. You play as a man named Max who has just woken up in a sanitarium after being knocked unconscious in a car accident. Max can’t seem to remember where he is or where he came from, and it’s your job to travel around searching for answers. You’ll meet tons of creepy characters along the way. Speaking from experience, this game is truly frightening.
