We absolutely loved 2016’s Manual Samuel, a quirky and hilarious adventure game developed by Perfectly Paranormal. Putting players in control of the titular Samuel who must spend one day doing everything manually after making a deal with Death, there’s nothing else quite like it, meaning you should definitely give it a try. Now the developer has announced its latest game, The Holy Gosh Darn.

The Holy Gosh Darn promises to one again be a quirky and hilarious adventure game. One that’s set on the very same Tuesday that Manual Samuel and Helheim Hassle, Perfectly Paranormal’s other game to date, takes place on. Does that mean there might be a bit of crossover so that we might encounter some familiar faces along the way? It seems like Death will appear at least.

The story of The Holy Gosh Darn seems to centre around time travel, with a golden stopwatch being the item that allows the manipulation of time here. Ultimately, it sounds like players will have to travel through time to solve puzzles and influence conversations. Along the way, the press release also states that players will get to “insult heavenly elders, travel to hell, meet exactly 4,250 dogs, and discover the very meaning of life.” That all sounds like a blast to us.

Thankfully we won’t have to wait too long to play The Holy Gosh Darn, as it’s set for release on PC and consoles this summer. Give the release date trailer a watch below.
